Ghost28  Yes  i know it looks like John Deer Green but it is the original 1932 chevrolet apple green that was out in 1932 and yes this is a deluxe sports roadster with rumble seat and dual side mounts and a luggage wrack with trunk that you can see in the background that and 6 wire wheels vette59jdwl

too the best of my knowledge the roadsters all came as 4 passenger...ie== rumble seat cars.  Except for 1932 where you could order the car as a NON rumble seat called the "standard roadster".

This subject came up on the VCCA CHAT in the last year or so.

I think we're hijacking this.  The question 28chevyguy asked was about mounting his steering column.  Ghost used a Vega box with an old style column.  The front suspension is from a 40 Ford truck.  I looked at his build thread on here and his column looks straight in the pictures.  He may be able to give you some ideas.

Thanks Tom. I think the only way to get his collumn to sit straight is to either modify the frame as suggested, or use a new 3/4 inch shaft with a couple of universal steering couplers to keep it all lined up. I believe the column he is using mounts direct to the 55 chevy gear box via a rag joint of sorts as a traditional style steering. Seems the best idea is to notch the frame for this application.
