    I had a couple "dramatic" years and deleted just about everything in this thread. That was weird! I'm over it now...sorry to all who were watching. Wanted to fix this for a while now and currently have a good bit of free time on my hands so I'm going to add as much back in as I can.

    (Pssst! Sell me those spring hangers when you cut them off. I have a set of bones that need repair!)

    I can't wait to see this roadster come together! I remember seeing the original picture at top years ago (right clicked and saved from a random T picture thread) but never knew who had started the car. I've wondered from time to time what happened to this project. A pre-26 T on '32 rails is pretty unique, haven't seen it done before or after this one.

    I really dig the changes you have made so far, especially the Olds motor!
  6. Nice to see you posting this here, I went to look at it on Flyers the other day but the site is offline. Love the backing plates a good change from the norm. The Whippet shell on your wall would look real bitchin' on this roadster.

    need louvers ?

    Way cool! I had been wondering who did the flesh out on this one to since seeing the same picture. Now it kinda makes sense. I'm diggin' the front brake backing plates too. Great idea. How late are the F 250 parts you've adapted?

    NICE! I really like the overall look of this car. Hope you are going to give a full hood some thought, it would give it that Track T look IMO. Bob

    You really have to like a guy who puts a project in his living room ! :D You must be a bachelor. :cool:

    Your roadster already has the look to it, very cool. I will be following this one for sure.

    Cool project. I'd love to have rails like those, but tailor fit for a Model A coupe body! Gary

    Coincidences abound here!

    My late partner bought an old '24 track T that had a rotten frame. I shaped the perimeter of a pair of 'Just a Hobby' '32 rails to the body, (1978) the shop was full...
    So I took the 'T' home, and set it up in my living room. New carpet, but new tires, also...
    Track T had a dropped '37 tube, (original Bell axle!) V8 Quick change, '27 T rear spring.

    Car was nearly finished, and he got stupid and sold it. A young kid around Santa Cruz has it now, at least did in 1987.

    Small world...

    That front engine mount is very elegant.
    Nicely done.

  22. Ah, ok well I look forward to seeing this little T come together! I remember seeing that first picture float around here for years and thought it looked like a great start!

    Looks good! How will you mount the wishbones? Through the 'bones behind the axle?
