My son and I recently picked up a 1942 MB which is kind of rough shape and we are looking to modernize it a bit. The original engine has been replaced somewhere along the line, not sure exactly besides a 4 cyl currently resides in it, but otherwise appears to be all original. we would like to give it a slightly wider stance and add disc brakes to it , so what axles would you alll recommend to replace the originals? We are also looking to maybe add a small block Chevy for more power. All suggestions/opinions are welcome.
Thanks for your input in advance!
