choptopfomoco/50 FORD
 
Where should I start?
I have been into auto body repair and building old cars and tractors since I was seventeen year's old. Actually a some body customizing since 15 year old.
I own Ozark Auto Body & sales inc. here in Harrison, although I dont go around much, My Son and two Daughter's manage and run the business now.
since my retirement I have been trying to finish a hot rod project that I started 17 years ago. in the last year Im gaining.
In this pic. album all the pics are not in order, the ford started out white(when I bought it) after a ton of work it ended up in red oxide primer. now its grey primer. I hope it will be cherry red in a couple months.
I have another album of the car while in pieces and on the rotisserie . If you like looking at car build pics I will post the other album later. Picasa Web Albums - Don Bailey - 1950 Fordchop

Yah, that dash looks really great. Also go a peek at a couple of nice looking tractors in one of those pics.

Thanks for looking at my child hood dream. Thanks for the comments.:tea:
Here are some pics of the dirty work being done in my home shop. After retiring and a couple days work on the car, I soon figured out that my old legs were going to suffer a lot. So I built a rotisserie ,using two engine stands and some new steel.
The yellow A was one of mine, chopped ,chevy 8, corvette chromed rear end. Good show car but to cramped inside.
