    Funny story, a good friend of mine (upcanhr) on the hamb PM'd him also. I'm sure we all though it was a scam, I'm just glad I left my name and number. I'm also glad Bill liked me. If not I think the next guy would have got it. As for Bill, we will drink a few cold ones together during the build and we will for sure start a build thread.

    I'm going to start selling a few parts off on here when I get more organized. I have enough 32 parts to make a rolling chassis which I don't think I'm going to use. I'm leaning towards repo rails and starting from scratch. I'll keep everyone posted as I go.

    As for Pops, he is the only reason I love HotRods to begin with. As I grew up our only reliable car we owned was our HotRod, which we drove everywhere. I'm looking forward to building this car with him but again I need to pay for it all first.

    Very cool story, and great start for a build thread.

    Try to use the original rails, have to keep the body with what you found, unless they are crap, then find another set of originals.Just my 2 cents.

    Good story!---Reminds me of when I bought mine in pieces in 1962. ($500 bucks) At least mine was NOT channeled, so it was an easier project.
    Nice to hear Dad will help too!

    I wish I got it for his original asking price of $9500. The price was went up quicky once he found out what they are really worth.

    I'm thinking of selling the nice original frame, steering column, firewall, and suspension with an ownership as a package.

    I could use the money for the project, an original frame doesn't mean much to me and a repo frame is good enough. Having the real body is whats is important... to me anyways.

  17. I saw the add about 12 hours after it was posted. I sent 3 PM"s with email and phone# and never got a response. I would have headed that way immediatly.
    Looks like it's in good hands!
     
  18. Yea i spoke to him way early. SUPER nice guy. He told me same thing about the price and it priced me out of the market. GREAT score though!!! congrats.

    I also replied a few minutes after the ad went up. Thought it was a scam since he did not respond. Glad you go it, looks like it went to a good home.

    Yeah, I still can't quite understand why he didn't call everyone back or why it took so long for me to be contacted, but for whatever the reason why I was contacted (lucky as shit I guess) I jump at the opportunity. Still can't believe it happened.

    I would SERIOUSLY RECONSIDER Selling all the cool origanal chassis, firewall and ect. The car is all there, and what makes that car so cool is the story and having all the cool old origanal pieces. You have enough stuff there to get the car together, so do it. If you take away all those pieces all you have is what was a cool car stripped of everything that made it cool. Basicaly thats a nice way of saying anouther lame boring piece of shit. Work some overtime or somthing to pay it off if you have to. Don't just fill it full of after market crap just cause it's easy. Just remeber the car is only like this once. Don't fuck it up.

    Although I do agree we some of your comments, I don't care much for an original chassis. I don't want a car with an original K member, cross members or suspension. I have one and personally believe it’s a nice car to get an ice cream in and that’s about it. Driving a car across the country to hot-rod events with an original rear axle and transmission limits you to about 50mph, which isn't that practical. Having an old car with history that I'm able to drive every day and build memories with my own family is more important. I drive my cars often and regularly and find the old stuff exactly what it is, old. I have three original firewalls, so I don't need all of them. The price people are willing to pay for an original rolling chassis, would pay for my new chassis completely. It’s a win/win for me. I also already have spare ownership for a 32. So selling a complete rolling chassis with an ownership will help someone else out. Besides the chassis under the car isn't the original channelled chassis anyways, it’s just a good ice cream chassis for someone else to modify. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Again I'm not saying your ideas aren’t wrong, it’s just not my cup of tea. <o:p></o:p>
