  8. In the seventies, In my town and all around, over country roads, the owner who built the engine, competed In a category named " limitada 31" . My goal is rebuilt the engine as its is... Whitout modifications...

  11. Some metalshaping pics... In the process I'll start using a model A phaeton cowl and doors, subriels were cutting and placed the original pickup subriels with some patchs...

  12. As you can see... Phaeton subriels and rpu are not the same... Phaeton are wider increased front to rear, about 1.5 inches... I don't know why, but the phaeton cowl, came with the same original floor panel, same as the pickup.... So the panel was removed and fit perfectly...

    Cool thread, my planned build is very close.

    Working on the chassis now, hope to get into the motor later this year and if I'm lucky pickup the rpu body.

  23. Work on the 29 doors handle holes, pickup two original 28 29 flutted lens, and get some parts sanded!!

  24. The fluted lenses are '28 only. Better looking than the '29's.
