Brothers from a different mother alright. These cars come from the same branch of that tree. Twins even.
Good-on-ya for stickin' with it Silva, the results speak for them selves. Kool car. I dig the red boat wheel, authentic (unpainted is original, in this case original is good).

I thank ya'll ...and feel a bit embarrassed, I hope we are not overexposing
the car here on the HAMB.

Like everyone here building a car...you know it is a labor of love and a huge commitment.

Ryan did a wonderful job,capturing the feel and vibe of the build as it has progressed.

I am truly humbled by the comments the car has received.

Just to clear up any confusion..The steering wheel is a "Sheller" and was commonly used on boats, It is the NOS color and I initally wanted to paint it black...but after I installed it, the red really popped off the black and blue.

Some will like it some won't.

Thanks
Kevin

Overexposing? If you lived in California, your car would be in 20 magazines already.
Your car needs to be seen, it's screams traditional Hot Rod, in fact I'd like to see more, especially build pictures and stuff.
Congrats on getting it running.

LOVE IT!!
Love the Tardel/Bishop book too.
Amen!!! The Silva Special gets your attention by being understated.

BTW Sheller made a lot of steering wheels in the thirties. Most of Fords' banjo wheels were Shellers.

Thumbs up Re: The Silva Speed Special (Part 3)

Damn that's fine. So glad to see it sittin' up rather than layin' on the ground. Those cars are cool too, but traditional is where it's at in my book. Nice job!!

a great 'verbal portrait' of the car, and its 'soul', top stuff.

Similarly, the sweet photo's, only minor/personal prefference, would be that next time you do some shots like that, you turn the lights on for all, as whilst the setting sun offers a fresh perspective of lighting, with both cars being relatively dark, the headlights really add to the flavour. Again, only my opinion, but dig the shots none the less.

Cheers,

Drewfus

The only thing I'd change about that car is it's location.

Those pictures are "priceless" . I would like to frame them all. I would also like both cars in my garage.

In my opinion sedans don't get the respect that coupes or roadsters garnish. They're kind of a third option hot rod. That's why I chose one for my first attempt. If I screwed it up too badly, no big deal its just a tudor. That being said its really refreshing to see someone aproach a tudor just like they would a five window or a nice roadster. Lots of detail and exceptional work. Extremely nice car.
