Finally got my 30 year itch. How often u find a so nice Henry J? And how often in Sweden??
Congrats. I have always liked the Henry J's. What are your plans for it.
That's crazy, a Henry J in Sweden. Do you any history on it? Like how it ended up there.
Infact there where 808 Henry J's sold New in Sweden. Today there are 4 road registrated Henry J's in Sweden. This looks like it Would be the first Gasser J in Sweden.
I beleive they were license built in Holland.
Think so and in Haifa
WOW Great find!!!
Nice find. Have fun.
Big fun in a little package!

Getting a Henry J is on my list too.
i'm surprised those made it over there! it looks very un-molested, great find.

It is pretty much unmolested. Some dents and dings here and there. Rusty floor, spare tire housing and left rocker panel bottom

That reminds me of the one I passed on and regretted it, it belonged to Pastlane here on the HAMB...lol
It feels nice to finally have one of My own....
Nice find. Congratulations. Have some fun with it.
Will try for sure......
Ohh... don't tease me like that... I'm a real sucker for Henry Js and Allstates. I would probably not be able to resist.
the Dream machine Mr Henry J Concratulations
Nice find It's screaming GASSER
And GASSER is the plan.....
Hay Nice find!! This is what your at now.. I love these cars..You other gasser post came to the top so I had to go search to see where you been hiding!!lol. Guess Ill have to watch this one now!! lol.
Me and Kimmen got that old, wild and strong Kaiser Supersonic Six runnin today. First time in over 30 years that engine runs....
If mine were that nice I might actually have some ambition to build it... There were 5 of them here at one point, down to just one & a pile of parts now.
Has happend some on this old Henry J. Got it running and fixed the brakes and a fuelpump and new fuel lines.
So last Monday i got it registrated again. It was put in a storage in Ostersund sometime during the end of 1967 before Sweden went from Left to Right side traffic.
So its been of the road for almost 45 years.
Also got in contact with a guy who got a ride in this car in 1966.
Also bougth some stuff for it.
A 30's Chevy pickup frontaxle with Volvo discbrakes.
Chevy 350 4 bolted around 320-350 hp.
Saginaw 4 speed.
And some other parts needed
Will use it a couple of month before i tear it down for gasser treatment.
Of to registration.
Here we are at Bilprovningen in Ostersund
The fun part is that this car was sold new in Ostersund in December 9:th 1952
Took it for a ride yesterday. First stop the supermarket
Second stop. Wifes parents
Third stop. Kimmens Place
And i also stopped on the way home beside a lake
More to come.............. 8)
