Hello, I'm new to forum but am excited after taking the first steps on my 1933 Dodge 4-door sedan project. This car was owned by my great uncles that were original homesteaders of our property. Here is a picture with the car (right) around 1953, my mother the child in the foreground. The car had been mostly stripped down while sitting in the forest for probably 50 years. The body is in surprisingly decent shape apart from one fender and one door. The frame is also in good, usable shape. I was able to hoist the car through the roof down to the rear axle through the round access hole to get it loaded safely. I cleaned it up and took inventory of parts. A few original parts of note: Rear seat footrest, Seat rope, all seat springs, transmission, front & rear axles, under dash heater/blower, instrument panel, front & rear bumpers, steering column and box. I did some metal detecting under where the car sat. I found all the removable floor panels, the base to the hood ornament but no ram (dang!), a Briggs and Stratton key that fits the ignition (doesn't turn so not sure if that's coincidence), and various chrome screws and parts. I am planning on going custom hot-rod with this as I don't have the patience or resources for an original restore. I am excited to learn the ropes and talk shop with some old pros. I am open to all suggestions, information, etc. The car is now safely covered from the elements. Next step will be getting is on some scrap wheels for ease of loading it up and bringing it across the state to where I live.
