The Jalopy Journal
I don't know anything about the VL hubs,that my be true. but I believe it was also pretty common to use Harley servicar rear hubs as well.
Factory SS hands down.
I think the baby moons might work with black walls and no trim rings. But would be better suited to a biscane or lower...
I think it looks pretty rad from what I can see in the pics.
And I'm digging the colour and pinstriped flames.
I will defer you to these 2...
Looks real good so far. How much did you move the front forward?
And now that you've figured out how to post pics don't stop now. Keep...
That car is baaaad ass!
Are you coming to Nelson for the queen city cruise in September?
I saw your car there last year but don't think we met?
Hummm..... The search continues.
I can't seem to shake this car from my mind as well.
It's pretty hard to make out from the tiny image but...
Nice one FG. Nailed it while I was just typing away with pointless speculation.
And a magnifying glass. Haha.
I just look at the pic. againe and for sure the gentleman with his back to the camera leaning on the red 32 roadster is wearing a Early Times c.c....
I'm no expert but nothing in that picture says 70's to me.
My guess more like 1967 or so. And judging by some of the other rods present a Early...
Really diggin' this T with 28/9 A fenders, Any more?...
Since when are flatheads and hemis run of the mill?
I have read through this thread and all I can say is, it looks like a classic example of when us hobbyists get cought up in the wide net cast by...
Speaking of M&H, if your down with rocking 14" wheels these tires are KILLER!...
Any more of the blue 34(?) Ford? I love it. It's got survivor written all over it.
Very cool. your louvers have a nice soft look to them.
Sometimes depending on the dies used, I can't help but think "gym locker" when I see a...
You had me right up to the fake rust? WTF?
Nice find! So cool to see all these great survivors popping up.
Hopefully you get those slides and post some of them, I'd love to see it in all...
I'm really diggin the short fat tires with the pinner whites. What are they?
Seriously I don't think you need photo shop for that. It would look like every other 32 ford highboy roadster!
What are the rest of your plans for it?
Shiny paint and all the bells and whistles? Or are you gonna leave it mostly the way it is?...
I dig it.
If it was me I wouldn't change much. Not all hotrods need to be a "perfect 10" to be really cool.
Any chance you got some of "el Chupacabra II"?
Thanks for posting.
It's always cool to see some "local" history.
Thank you Rikster for keeping this thread going. Every time I see it "at the top" I get so excited to see what treasure you've posted!
I bought my deuce "cheap" because it was "so much work to un-channel it." :confused:
who would want a old channeled hotrod?
That is one Badass hotrod! Subscribed.
I'm curious who you bought your wood from and how you like the fit? As its one of the first jobs I plan on...
And a super crappy pic of a window display I did for a friend of mines boutique, showing my offy 3x2 for B model Chrysler big block,and early...
A crappy pic of my Offy 3x2 and 4x2 setups.
