    that is a great thread...
    a good friend builds this roadster for me in "late 40's style"... maybe we should start a build up thread.
    BTW: I'm looking for good inspiration concerning interior and gauges!

    To me that car cries out for an original ‘32 panel and gauges. An Auburn panel or Haneline boat panel almost seem too new.

    Agree, a '32 panel would be authentic for the period you are trying to create...traditional upholstry for the period was pretty spartan, but usually the back seat upholstry rolled over the back of the cockpit...and lots of guys who ran their '32s at the lakes ran tonneau covers over the cockpit for more streamlining...kept it for the street so everyone would know you were a lakes racer...really great looking car!!!

    Haneline is definitely too new but an auburn would be great in that car. They started putting those in hot rods as soon as they showed up in a wrecking yards. What ruins an auburn panels ability to be early is the overuse of tacky new gauges or worse, scaled down versions of the originals. JohnnyA

    the original 32 panel would fit, yes...but I'm "concerned" about those additional gauges I would need like the 2 water temps and so on... I also thought about putting just the gauges (old s/w's) in the dash without a panel - is this blasphemy?

  22. Thanks! I picked up the complete '31 chassis from a guy who was using the coupe body for a street rod project.Found the OG body in SF a short time later.Trying to keep it as close to Pre-WW2 as possible.Running a banger,mechanical brakes,keeping the splash aprons,full hood,stock '29 shell.Final finish will be gloss black with oxblood guts.. Just something cool to run around in..

    Peter you could do like I did on mine. Use an original gauge cluster with an original speedometer, bore out the two outside holes, and then drill others in the dash.

    My buddies 32' 5 window he built in the 50's has it exactly the same way.
