Looks great Eric.
Your Roadster is the Bomb dude
Haha ... wow. You have to love that art work you made though. I always regretted not keeping a similar twisted driveshaft for wall hanging. At the time it happened ... all I heard was the floor pan trying to rise up and kill me. Your twisted remains may have even turned out prettier then mine did. Sorry for the carnage, but you have another cool yarn to tell. Such is the excitement of life.
Very cool ride , must have missed it , but what kind of steering box did you use ?
It's all good until you charge for autographs or act like you don't know me.. Congrats!
Congrats. That's a cool write up, and some great detail photos.
That feature is something to be proud of!
I'm happy to see the leaves worked for ya'........and thanks to nobuckets for giving the t spring to me originally.
Man I love this car, a true classic. Well done sir.
The roadster looks perfect now !
The spring really gave it a classic fifties little mag hot rod look. Good job Anderson glad your able too enjoy it before the weather turns to poop. Wyatt
And it's now for sale or trade
The new rear spring arrangement looks even better; a little rake and a horizontal engine= win, win !
I hope you're able to get that 5 window. I'd like to see what you'd build.
Come on man, this T rules, and the world has enough Milner coupe clones.
This car is way cooler than most 32s I've seen. I love early Ts though. Wish I wasn't broke.
A lot of free sweat equity in this T. Praying for a lottery win ... and I'm not greedy, I hope you win before I do. It would be nice if you could keep this as a 32 stablemate. Pretty sure it would pick on the 5 window when you aren't lookin'.
T's are hard to sell. A lot of people think they're bitchin' but wouldn't actually own one. I found this out when I sold my '27 Roadster on '32 rails a couple of years ago. I listed it for sale in July 2012 and didn't get money in my hand until February 2013. It was a 1948 era-correct car down to every nut and bolt. I had my PM box flooded with people telling me how great it was, what a great deal it was and how "if they had the money"... I think part of the issue is that they are small and a hard fit for a lot of people. One of the guys that actually came to my house to see the car was peeing down his leg standing there looking at it. Then he sat in it and said, "I don't think this is gonna work."
Don't get discouraged if it takes a while to move.
State in your advertising that there is a height limit Set it at 5' -2" and you will sell it easily
Skinny, too...don't forget the skinny part.......sigh
A truly inspiring build. Good luck on selling her. She deserves twice what your asking.
I enjoyed and learned from the build. If I had put that into it I could never sell it. I can't even part with the rusty junk in the yard that I thought I'd build something out of.
I'm looking for someone to buy it and put it in a museum with a sign on it that says "This is what a real hot rod looks like"
OK, I'll bite is the one you'll never sell a VW Beetle?
Cool, I wish I had any of my first 1/2 dozen or so cars.
Sorry you don't seem to be getting the 32. But I'm really excited to see you dig back in to this new classic, get at it Anderson! Wyatt
Sorry ... I have a stuttering problem ... but, don't forget b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-bah-bah-black !!! That car would be wicked black. What do I know ?! Paint it red ! Looks great in blue primer. Forget I said anything.
And that would really suck and be a very sad day.
Cars like this should be driven and enjoyed and shared with the world.
You should be ashamed to have even suggested such a travesty.
A really nice shade of blue. Two thumbs up
Don't feel bad selling the T. I did the same with my touring. They are basically barhoppers with no room to carry anything with you. I sold mine when our son was born and realized I preferred Chopped coupes and sedans better!
