Frame for 34 Terraplane coupe

Thinking of buying this coupe but biggest problem is it is only the shell with no frame. Is there any modern frames that would be close to fitting? Was told frame is pretty much straight from one end to other and would be easy to build. Is that true? Any ideas or help greatly appreciated.

    I'd say 33-34 ford.   After market is everywhere.   I'm using same for my 33.  Modern and 34 don't mix.   Post pictures.

    You might try putting a notice on the H.A.M.B. parts wanted section.  It might be that some hot rodder has put a new frame under a '34 body, and might be happy to sell the old frame to you.

    Jon B your right.  But I'm guessing most people doing a build would keep the frame.   Not many guys completely ditch the foundation.   But you never know.

    Thanks guys. Would a coupe frame be the same as a sedan frame?
