The Jalopy Journal
I remember that car from McDonalds in Downey back around 1959. I pretty sure he ran Steve Carbone in his '57 Vette.
So I've made up mind to strip the cab of my '56 and I call the people in Jackson MS that did some work in the recent past. They no longer do it....
I've been told they were Mechlick or Mehilic but can't find anything about them. They are knock offs with the back side drilled to pilot over...
This older build was really high end when new(around 1989) and shows to be high quality the way it has stood up. Gibbons body, genuine frame,4...
How about a quote on moving a drivable open car from Clifton VA TO Benton, AR
The flat side in the threads was done to keep what ever from turning. was the hole on the face made that way or has it been drilled out?
Call it either, but please don't say its "Old School".
Here's mine. Chrome and red-Mordrop,chrome and gold Magnum, black and black Joe's .[ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH]
The Bakan car was Baby Blue before it was Tatian/ Tahitian Red too.
Contact Bob Wzorek over on the Ford Barn, they say he is the man when it comes to Houdaille's.
Back in the day, I doubt the car would have received the respect you are showing it and that it deserves. When they were everywhere and cheap, all...
Somebody's not telling the truth.
I couldn't remember who told us about that but back then lots of knowledge was available from the salvage yard guys.

It looks to me like it started life as a Corvair box.
I used Hagerty for years and come premium time I shopped Grundy. Same coverage for less money from Grundy. After a couple of years I shopped...
I found an October 2012 obit for a Joe Grey from Buna TX. He has a son Joseph who is also from Buna. Don't know which one your after, but there is...
Muffler Man, I agree with you about how much better your car would look without front brakes and you could possibly get it to stop with rears...
My bad. There is a clone/tribute car with a aftermarket tube axle (not '37) and hair pins I had been studying. I stand corrected.
I believe if you will check it out you will find Ivo's had hair pins
I've got one in my roadster. I disguised it hoping nobody would know.
Take a look at the Ivo "T".
Wow, great vision and execution.
Mine is covered with upholstery material.
Won't ever work. Replace with SBC like everyone else. Sell motor to me for scrap. LOL.
Love the hood, lower shock mounts and the top tab being sawed off it says "real deal" to me
The real kicker here is the pinion being threaded to hold the yoke on vs the splined pinion with a hole for the pin that holds the driveshaft on.
