traditionally the rear is also a split wishbone setup.  however it does not play well with V8 power.  So to keep the look but have the performance i wanted, i designed a 4 link rear.

lower and upper links are 1-3/8" X .188 wall and use 7/8 heims.

Ford 1928 Model A grill shell.
to get the look i wanted i had to chop 4" of height out of it and notch it to fit inside the frame rails.
I also added some 1/4 rod to give it that hot rod look
a 1965 ford falcon 3 row radiator for a V8 just fits inside.
