    At it's present home. The first post shows that what Ralph got was the body, frame, and axles. No engine or trans. No front sheet metal or steering column. We didn't pull the hood this time but it has a nice flathead. Pictures of it next time I go up.

  4. That is so cool, shame it was missing the front sheetmetal but thankfully the rest remains intact & easily identifiable.

    Some details. Some original some not. It feels good to be around it. Ralph sent another article to my phone today but I can't get it here.

    What an amazing roadster. Thanks for sharing. Ralph has done a great job of preserving the original parts of the car with tasteful additions to what was not there. Cool::: I remember seeing the article in 1992 in Rod and Custom. Really great to see what has become of the car.

    I'll end the year with some pre war photos never seen before. The year is 1941, the top roadster
    belonged to my Dad's cousin, Jimmy Woods. It was a T body mounted on a 34 Ford frame, dash
    is chrome. The middle roadster belonged to, and was built by my Dad, Dick Noble, it was one of
    the nicest cars in Burbank in 1941. The A at the bottom belonged to a guy named Fritz. All three
    of these roadsters ran a Harper Drylake. I'am planning a full story on my Dad's roadster coming
    up next year, if you guys would like. Happy New Year All. Rich.... IMG_5400.jpg

    Lets hear it. Looks like the last picture is in Yosemite. That's a respectable drive from Burbank.

  11. Yep. That's the pull out as you are coming out of the Wawona tunnel.

    You guys are good, that's exactly where it was. Dad had his roadster there as well. If you look close you can see
    Fritz flipping the bird from inside his roadster. That's Dad and Jimmy on the wall. Long weekend trips were common
    then.

    When I was 22 I worked for a Stage Coach outfit in Columbia California. One of the drivers was driving the same coach he drove when he was 15! His run that ended in 1922 was from Raymond CA into Yosemite. Wawona & Ahwahnee were still painted on the coach. Lost his job when the National parks started using busses. Unemployed because of high tech changes in transportation.:D

    Here’s one I’ve been working on. It’s close to being on the road, and I’m going for a 1940’s look.

    It is great to see so much interest in this era of rodding, especially the bare bones approach with engines other than flat 8s. The enthusiasm on the face of the driver in the tub above says it all.:cool:

  21. I can see why you have not time for the roadster, you got too many other cool cars !

    I tried to keep this build pre 1950, athough it has a 50's F100 steering box
    .Still a few things to finish off but got to give it a run on the weekend and teach my daughter to drive
    Love the history in this thread.

    Why is the steering wheel on the right side?

    Maybe because he is an Aussie?

    The seat is from a minivan and the steering box is a 53 f100, everything else is OLD! 20170527_175730.jpg

    Remember Hamber Chris's roadster back some time ago...very similar...the unpolished look despite dislike by many has a genuine appeal as well...worn but not rotted out...
    and I just realized it was a 29...what the heck it's worthy of a post anyway...

    CS_29.jpg

    Hamber @Chris's former 29?

    In the redx'd world of photobucket it was extremely challenging to
    get a pic of this awesome Hotrod
