    What is that 1 spoke steering wheel from.
     
  15. Is there anything this board won't put down?

    I'll grant it's a dog-ugly cobbed mess, but section it through the middle and bring the rear fenders up almost to the door cutout and the proportions would improve a bunch. Lower the front fenders (better yet put some 33-34 fenders on) and put another grille on it. Done -

    That's straight out of the early 50's Popular Mechanics build your old sports car out of an old jalopy articles.

    One thing about it, It would take a hell of a lot of talent to make a decent looking car out of it.

    Maybe that should be an art challenge, render a drawing of it finished the way it should be.

    Shit, I'd take that car (not for that price though) and turn it into something cool. No problem! It has the beginnings of some nice lines for a sports car/speedster type custom.
    You guys have NO imagination!

    I like the car. Looks like it been neglected for decades, but was probably fairly nice at one time. What better use for a fordor?

    i'd give it a go
    not for $3000....but it'd be cool to make something out of it
    reminds me of alot of the 40's customs/coachbuilts
    i think it has potential to be something kinda cool
    not a period hot rod or custom in the normal sence though....

    buy it and ship it to Harrisburg PA :D

    I agree, the front end looks kind of interesting but the back half needs some major reconstruction.
