Here she is
Lots of Potential!
Search the Internet, there are Hot Rod 28 Dodge Sedans.
Gotta have a slant chop.
Seen them look good with and without fenders.
Steelies with Wide Whites.
Lots of Possibilities
My plans include a 413 wedge set waaay back, 4 speed, 8 3/4 rear 4.10 spool. Will be street driven often as well.
HRP--- WOW, just WOW,,.
man you have the touch....
nah man there is no real possibilities to do anything with that. better off just sending it to me
continue searching.... unless you can get it for balls cheap.
...I've still got this one for sale...$2500 ...it's a 27.
A friend built this from a 4 door
Whatever happened with this car? Did you buy it?
I hope to extract a '31 Chrysler moor door from a barn next weekend. Thats why I found this.
to me four doors in thatbody style do not need a chop. also the nice thing about the more doors.. you get lots of room.. for us tall types.
the black rod is perfect example of what to do to a moredoor.. id probably get rid of the red for zombie puke green.. but hey i like zombies.
No Milt still has it, its in the classifieds here
I don't know how to add a photo to this reply but , if you search My 29 DB you will see what can be done to a stock bodied full fendered car..........dodgekew
I love the way that shorten body looks.
There's another way. Close-couple the body but keep the cowl in the stock position. Run a large separate trunk between the rear fenders. I think a mild chop would probably help the proportions.
this is cool
Like this better
I think the fact you don't have a vision for it or bought it straight away should be enough to say its not for you. Folks have given you alot of ideas and it's still not doing it for you. I was in a similar position last week when i was offered a car cheap. Nice car etc but i couldn't get excited about it so i passed. Shame about the Dodge though as it looks a very complete and solid car and some of the ideas here are really good. If i had it i'd sell off all the bits i didn't need and keep the body. Build up a nice frame, channel the stock body a little keeping the fenders etc and go for a nice rubber rake.
Good luck whatever you choose to do.
Like this too
Just pulled this out of a barn yesterday. I'm having the same dilemma. I've wanted one for years, but have evolved out of the ratrod phase and am having troubles seeing this as a hotrod. The only solid plan that i can think of is '30s gangster theme. Full bodied, mild chop, gloss black on some WWWs. You know, Al Capone type shit
Have to agree, i'd change very little and stands out for the right reasons. Be very happy driving this all day long.
[QUOTE][/QUOTE]Finally worked out how to do it.
As I said , fully fendered and stock bodiedCan't get the pictures to go where I want them.
This keeps the cars " identity " intact . Engine is a 251ci Mopar , 3 speed with o/drive and 9" diff. '34 Dodge wires......
This was a very rusty Canadian tudor sedan
I'm building a red one and it's turning out very nice.
yes.....you can bring it to me, and I will make it a hotrod....you dont want it....
4 year old thread....
Damn sure is. huh. wonder if he ever made it into a hotrod?
...this one's for sale again in Michigan, check the classifieds...
when I owned it I thot about cutting it down into a truck with a homemade barnboard bed...
