Damn dude... I've been looking for a body style like that to build a cruiser for the wife and I and here you go chopping this one up into little pieces. What kills me is that I'm so in favor of it !!

With all due respect to the "traditional" intent of this site... Gasser the crap out of that thing and build it the way you want to. There were just about every body style made into a gasser back in the day. Anyone remember Dave Koffel's studebacker Lark? Build it, keep us in the loop and have a ton of fun with it when it's done.

Personally I think it's uber cool !!!

Nice project, I have found a lot of people love to talk about what it cool and what is not....build your dream its your car do the best you can, and be proud of your work, Ill bet the guy knocking your build has the same car that has been built before hundreds of times...

I agree with BoBwop. We need new Ideas!
For example: How many more "Small Block Chevy" engines are we going to see in Streetrods! I know their reliable but.....TME (To Much Exposure)!
It's time to explore different Bodies and Drivetrains!

I'm Just as guilty (350/350).....but I'm still looking for a deal on a "409" or a big "Nailhead" for my 39' Coupe.

I was concerned that all you were doing was building the car in your mind and on here. Glad to see you are taking action. Keep us posted.

Dude.....where ya been??

And Rambler guy...looks like a cool project. Ignore the naysayers....1/2 of the builds here aren't really "traditional" either, but sometimes get a "pass" just because it's a fucking Model A or a Duece....

O.K., I like the little ragtop. I'd also go the axle route.
As far as HAMB requirements, I doubt he is 'required' to either de-fender it or extend it and taildrag it with skirts & chopped Carson...The Gasser direction is perfunctory.
And what's with the authenticating of 'gassers'? Did they have to have run in the '60s?
Real 'gassers' were NEVER driven on the street? (ever been to Hayward?) Never were any ragtops run in Gas classes? (Ever been to Fremont?)
Somebody oughta do a search. This isn't Pebble Beach.
