The Jalopy Journal
Is this thread 10 years old yet?
Lots has happened since the last update,
but not too much on this lingering project.
Dang I must be out of the loop!
Last I remember you were just driving it.
Gotta get it back on the road...
Hey thanks guys!
Cool there's interest in building hot rods still...
Especially the down and dirty get on the road I do!
Making the necessary...
With the engine/tranny positioned,
the missing center x-member piece was next.
More templates and 1/4" plate.
Welded in place,
Where to start...
a HAMB friend HOTRODJEEP happened to be visiting the area.
Let's put him to work!
I had known Jeff online for 8? years,
A friends (Mario) dad (Ritchie) has had this since at least the 70's.
A sweet 3-window coupe,
it's slow build displaying multiple build...
More soon! TP
You'd think by now this would be a runner,
but it's still a project.
It's gotten much smoother,
did almost all patch...
Maybe I uploaded too many pics at once?
More like I'm getting my ass kicked!
Well that was a waste of a half hour!
I'll have to modify this later...
Ok let's try this again.
Thought I had gotten the hood close,
but realized yesterday that was a pipe dream.
Back in February...
Thanks guys for checking in and slogging through this build!
Got the hamb app so let's see if it makes it easier to post.
Wow it's been...
Makes me miss our old red dot roadster!
Mine two rear as well.
It seems if facing forward the front carb gets too much air the faster I go,
which is logical.
I use one on a 6 volt flathead.
Has the springy resistor wire and that's about it.
Show us a pic of the top if you can,
I'm curious as to what it...
For about 14 years I had a shop,
and realized everyone was worth 5 minutes.
In that time,
you can discern what the customer or friend wants,
Ok guys here's a quick update.
I've been driving the chit out of it.
Mostly around town,
trying to work on any bugs.
It took a couple...
so whatever happened?
Some of you guys may remember that I'm a hoarder,
and have been dragging this around for almost 10 years.
It's been the backdrop during much...
Okay so here's the latest ADD scoop from the Perich compound...
Over the past couple weeks I had realized maybe we had too many projects.
I built a 29 roadster with an A frame/flathead and used a cross steer 37-40 box, a tight fit but it worked even with dropped axle. Was one of the...
Cool stuff man looks like that'll fill up your weekend!
Chops looking good.
I kinda like the slanted pillars.
Let's see from the front!
Hey Oldwood after all that and your gonna give up that easily?
Can't you just find a thinner rear end? I used a $150 68 mustang 8" in the 40 and it fits perfect.
That was great!
Funny I just acquired a 40 year basketcase A coupe,
and it would be tough for me to start cutting it up,
although it's the first thing I thought...
