great little ride man.
Right on man! Its looking good so far..
I dig the column shift . I was thinking of doing that in my model A roadster too.
You have alot personal touches in your T and they all just scream right on.Diggin the build. JW
Really like what you have done with the T plus 32.. Its a perfect fit.. The lower floor pan makes it happen.Won't be long and you could cruise the Creek!! If ya''ll do that any more. Great job!!
That's awesome. Nice car. Good job.
thanks guys ill have another update on it soon. gettin a lot done today
Man, guess I need to get out of the cave more often, first I saw this thread. Looking damn good! That's looking pretty damn close to my dream hot rod. Good luck jamming it out Timmy.
Coming along nicely.
Very nice work. I just bought a '27 roadster body in every similar condition to yours last week, so I am very interested in seeing your progress. Nice work on the repairs and some great ideas for modding the deuce frame, floors and all.
Bump! Got any more old pics that we haven't seen? Did you do anything to the frame when you set it up for the T body? I'm also building a T on 32 rails and your stance is killer! Mines gonna be a roadster pickup with a v8-60 tube axle though, but if I could get close to the look you have that would rule. Oh yeah, what did you have to do to get the body to lay flat on the frame?

Awesome build thread, subscribed...
good lookng roadster.... updates ???
ok it seems like I have been needing to update this thing, so here we go. so I have been working pretty hard on this thing lately and all my instigram friends know whats going on but I have neglected the Hamb. so here we go. here is a picture of the patch I had to do on the cowl.

this is my kinda funky way of thinking for a column drop

and then after all this I had a break and drove my chevy down for the LA roadster show and had one hell of a weekend.

and then I got back to work on it after a nice break for a while. I started back up by finishing the patches on the lower half so I could finally get the body off and start finishing this thing up.

I decided to leave the seam so it was like stock

and then the old man had to goof around and take a seat in it. mind you my dad is pretty damn big and hes around 6 ft and as you can see its a perfect fit for us tall guys.

and then my buddy and I got a wild hair and pulled it all appart one night in under 2 hours.

and then we just started being idiots. trying to balance on the rear end. its the traditional SegWay from 1936

and then I started to cap off and finish up all the boxing and welding up all the cross members and adding gussets and all that jazz.

Killer car man...got my vote for the best darn project currently underway on the HAMB
The T is coming out great. Will you be doing any patches in this area? Mine needs it.
The whole car is bitchin', but i really dig the column mount!
thanks guys. and yeah ill be working on the tutle deck once its damn near all together.
Looking good. 1932 with a 27 body like they did is the thing, keep it up...
Way cool! Keep us posted.
Subscribed! I like how you dropped the seating area; at nearly 6'3 I will be doing the same. Excited to follow the build, good luck!

Awesome build !! It gave me the inspiration I needed to go on with my project ! Thanks man !!!! SUBSCRIBED !
thanks man soon it will be coming back together and on the road
Any more pics to share?
Great thread and even greater lil hot rod! Love all the little details, (where cowl meets the frame beauty line, wheel base, three on the tree and that awesome column drop). Cant wait to see it done...any direction on paint yet? Oh ya, love what ya did with the seat pan as well....just a bunch of great stuff here.
Nice looking build me and the boy are working on a 27 rpu for him
Would love to see some detail shots of the stering linkages and what you did there. The column shift is tough in these little cars...
