    Just wanted to share a little project I've been messing with on and off. Use it to pick up parts or run around town right now. Traded an old 4 door wagon for it about a year ago and have been changing things up here or there. Plans are to enjoy having a running hot rod for a bit longer and pull it apart and do everything right. Including a pic of how I got it. Early twenties willys body title says 26 but im not sure. Model a chassis. 8ba flathead. I've changed quite a bit up. Moved the body forward as far as I could without doing major work. New radiator and grille shell. New headlights relocated further forward. Seat redone. Still have a ways to go but such a fun car to drive.

    That thing is sweet... still looking for ideas for my '21 tub. Probably go with something like my profile pic- cant bring myself to cut it in half.
  4. Looks like you have made a bunch of improvements since you started. HRP

    Cool ride. I prefer the original headlite buckets better though. Less mainstream/traditional - more unique.

    I like your car a lot!...I have a 1914 Oldsmobile roadster body on a T-bucket frame as my daily driver....your tub looks similar to mine, but I think my cowl area is rounded a little more, and firewall a bit lower...but, all in all, it looks very similar otherwise....however, I had channeled my body over the frame to give it a lower stance...and had to 'narrow' the body 6'' inches to fit everything...I love the 2 doors, since my wife is short and can't 'jump' over the body without giving me the ''dreadful glare'':rolleyes:....I really like your car, and it's always nice to see I'm not the only one who has gone a little different route with a T-bucket....Cool car man!!!
