Cool car not sure about the four link in the front but the dash is super sweet!
A lot of great features and some goofy looking stuff but it's done well.
From Custom Rodder November 1958:
Rodding and Re-styling February 1959:
They crackle. Copper and brass were actually popular because of the sound they made.
Rodding and Re-styling July 1959
Also from R & R July '59 is this neat roadster. It is equipped with 1935 Hudson electric shift!
Here's a slick little bucket from Rodding & Re-styling June '59.
Last one for awhile.......
How about this oddity; '32 5-window/Jaguar combination! August 1959 Rod Builder & Customizer
I just got my Tex Smith book today, anyone ever see this bitchen '26/'27 T (I think?) with A fenders and cut-down doors in a magazine from the time? According to the caption, this was Bonneville 1953, and Tex figures it was from the Portland area? I'd love to see more pics of this. I really LOVE this car, it kinda looks like Hentzels car would have if it were a roadster.
I'm loving that east coast rake.
Love the Plymouth axle
Falcongeorge: that is an awesome car. Peter Sucalac (spelling?) did an in depth write up on it in an early issue of Street Rod . It was a pretty famous Ore/Wash based car. I'll dig out that issue, if no one else expounds on it.
That's excellent Bowie, thanks a bunch. I want to see more of that car, it really looks sharp.
I'm a use plenty of photos guys. But @sancoz that is to much for one man to handle.
If my internet connection was so bad, I would have prematurely "detonated" in my pants in the middle of the second last post you did.
Almost made me change my pants.
This is a neat car, well proportioned. I just noticed the mopar front axle. neat.
that car looks SCARY .......
heres my '40 deluxe built in 1958 in tennessee
I think it's a F-1
This from the front-

no F- 100s go thru the frame rail, looks like an original willys gear box ground smooth
31 Chevy Roadster....featured in Hot Rod June 1953.
Man, that thing is nice. Wish there was more on it some place. Anyone? Gary
pic of my 1915 Model T from 1958 or 59?
Yowza; that body is lazer straight! She's had good care through the years...
George: Robert Hegge did a write up in Sept '72 Street Rod mag on Don Bracy's former oval track '27T. Built in 1952, it sat on '36 rails and with a'49 Merc built by Bill Schnell of Portland ; it ran 135 mph. I have the article with pics on my iPhone, but don't know how to post them...
Thanks Bowie, I will see if I can get my hands on a copy of that magazine. Its funny how many of the cars built back then were on later '33-up frames. But here on the HAMB that's a major faux-paux and guys will get in line to tell you you cant do that. Sorta like chopped '32 grill shells on Model 40's...
Found a picture of the cover online, it has Greg Sharps roadster PU on the cover, right?
Yep it's that issue.
Might be tough to find. I really want to see more details now, the info you posted has REALLY whet my appetite. I haven't found ANYTHING about him or the car online.
Pretty sure I should have that issue George. I'll have a look tonight, and try and get it scanned.
