The Jalopy Journal
Yeah, I looked after I asked the question, and saw they were Hillman's. Cool little cars.
Are they Vauxhall's? Look great.
Met this 57 Ford Wagon on the road the other day. Not a great picture, but I took it from my dash cam.
Hope this works. Nice car.
I had a 49 Ply just like that in HS, plus I had a 2 door sedan same color. Pick a pair.
Just like that fancy new car coming out next year; you can PRE-ORDER it today. Isn't that the same as just ORDERING it?
Nice car. I'm another that doesn't care for connie kits, but it really seems to fit that car.
BTW, you can trip on untied shoe laces (check your...
It 's not a whole car.
My 58 Yeoman wagon has a U shaped tank, and when I redid the car in the early 90's, replacement tanks weren't available. IIRC, I used Eastwoods...
I never cared much for the 40 Mercs as much as the 40 Fords, because of the 'stodgy' upright roof. But, WOW! When you chop the top and make it...
Can it be adjusted to remove the play?
Got chrome wheels on both cars, but I do have a few wheel covers. Wires off my 63 Galaxie, which turn out to be Mustang covers. 55/56 Chevy, 66...
Those headlights aren't standard; wonder what they are? Really sets off the front end.
Here's a Roundup that was for sale for less than $20k....
53/54 Ford Convertible spotted in South Dakota.
Very cool project. Wish I was half as handy. I'm sure you indexed the 60 year old screws, right? Yeah, I'm sure.
I'm just curious, as I just ran across these 5 pages. I missed the 'build' of his widened car. Is it still on here?
Thanks for the replies.
So what happens when you go up or down hills?
All Nomads starting in 58 were 4 doors, but 2 door wagons were still built. Mine is a Yeoman, the lowest of the line with rubber floor mats and...
I have two friends who were running a body shop in the 70's and 80's. The restored a 64 Chevy convertible for someone, and took a 58 Yeoman in on...
The V-dub people would probably pay for the Wolfcrest emblem on the front of that bug.
I will never understand why people do that with cars....
Just doesn't look right.
The 59/60 dash has always been my favorite. A friend of mine narrowed one down to fit his 40 Chevy.
John, glad to see that you're getting some time to work on the '41.
Also, Ryans65, good video on the old house and cars. I like exploring old...
Hey, this looks like a neat item for cars with hydraulics.
D=drag the rear
When I was young and stupid (and didn't have much money), I used the cheapie 3 legged stands under all my vehicles. I'm surprised that I'm still...
Pretty much the same here.
Second vote for putting it on.
Picture my car a white Merc convertible. I found these NOS 14" wheels last year. They replaced the factory wire wheel covers.
The gas gauge sending unit in my 58 Chevy Yeoman started reading empty all the time. Luckily, the tank has a drain plug. I found a new one on ebay...
