Here's my project. On it's on its way to a 40's hot rod.
This is my 32 survivor from the 40's
This is when I put a 8ba in it but it didn't fill right so now it has a 40 block
This is with the early block how it is now
Probably late '30's. Johnny Vesco and his beloved 4 port riley. Somewhere in Redlands, CA
What is that frame, early Essex?
Here's the little green one in a photo session for Gasoline Magazine yesterday. Photographer Hakan Erixon.
Here's my grandpa's t roadster overhead valve with a Columbia two speed! My brother now owns this car
A little better pic
My grandpa's 32 he lost his license in it and joined the navy.
I really like your roadster. Any more pics of it?
Birdog that T is amazing, any current pictures? Does it still have the OHV banger in it? I'd love to hear more about that car.
I'd like to see more of both of them. I've never seen a T in the day with those wheels.
This thing is great, love to see some more pics as well
Here you go!
This is the guy who rebuilt it again in 51 his name is Jim and he bought it from his shop teacher it was already channeled with filled wheel wells on the 33 chassis with no motor. He dropped a build 59a into it
Only other phot I have I'd with my grandma standing by it. Sadly all his pics of his hotrod were destroyed in a flood except a few. He had multiple chopped 32-34 coupes. He worked at a wrecking yard so he got his hands on a lot of old cars lol. I will find a pic of it now but it's just the body and a few other parts. The drive train was eventually sold off but he hung the body up in the rafters tell last year when we pulled it down for my brother to build.
Hubba hubba! I love channeled Deuces.
Wow, some great history there, Birdog.
does anyone have info on this?I believe i found it earlier on this thread
@MannyK that is the Duke Hallock roadster, it survives today and is owned by Jackie Howerton, these days it is fenderless and has a '32 grille.
the Hallock roadster used a `36 cadillac grille, i believe. i`ve been looking for one a long time.
That is a beautiful car just like it was. Oh well like I've said for years. "If you think your car is finished sell it to someone else."
Hallock roadster today
The Hallock roadster looks good fenderless as it is today, but the original look with the caddy grill is outstanding. Very subtle yet changed just enough to stand out in a crowd. (JMHO)
Thanks guys. Does anyone know what the original color was?
