The Jalopy Journal
Was thinking about the same thing. I’m saving those for last. My idea to explore is using a ‘49 ford park light.
Spent a couple of minutes at the shop on my way home from work. Did a little fitting and trimming in the grille. I have a plan, I think it’s...
Thanks @hotrod1948 and @James D , progress is slow but at least it’s progress. Building hotrods is faster than building customs.
that is an interesting idea. Will have to think on that a bit.
Just caught up your progress. Looking good!
It’s been a while since I had any shop time, but I got some in today. Still working on the hood and latch but made some good progress....
Family and I took our 40 on our annual Christmas tree hunting trip. We only took a couple of photos.

I made room in my shop to park the 40 next to my project 48 convertible so I can fix a few things and give her an attitude adjustment over the...
Thanks for the info. I was planning on sending a spare axle off to Sid to get that out of the way. Was contemplating using original springs with...
I’ve got a 40 4dr. Really love your look. Hoping to work on my stance over the long Wisconsin winter. Would you mind sharing more on your...
Bucket list show for sure. Do you have to get accepted to attend/participate? Thanks for the pics.
I’ve posted mine before but will do it again since I just rolled it out of the garage after being cooped up for a year. ( I’ve been using my ‘40...
I put one in my 48 convertible. Build thread in my signature.
Already put one of my $10 finds to use. Last fall the fan pulley on my Model A broke and it’s been out of commission. eBay fans were ~ $80,...
Forgot the big bar pic.
My daughter and I drove the T Roadster. Had a good time, bought some parts, saw some cars, had a BIG BAR.

Thanks and agreed. The lights aren’t done yet. I have pieces made to make the fender flow into the French light ring better.
I am playing around with a grille change, this time a ‘49 Cadillac grille. Barris put one in a ‘48 Merc
Early mock up pic....
It’s great seeing a few more 4 drs. I’ve been driving my 40 more door all summer. It became my daily driver. A stock ‘40 drives so nice. Not...
Great pics. Good for you for taking the adventure.
Nice looking ‘40 !
For this year range of Fords, I think the combination of color, stance , and wheel/tire makes all the difference. Even a 4 dr can look great if...
I still have the ‘32. Collecting a few parts for the build (not many needed) while it is waiting its turn as I work on my ‘48 convertible.
There is a decent short door 46 coupe for sale in the classifieds located in central MO. Looks like an easy project.
Should be pretty simple. I have some 46-48 stuff if needed. I like the look of a 42 if you can be patient and scrounge up the grille parts.
The one with the barbed wire is a joke , right. Surely , no one would do that on purpose...
Headlights recessed. Tacked in place. A lot of work to do to flow the fender into the ring.
I bet that old spirit is thrilled to be back on the road.
Nice looking ride.
