Good find for you,love those J's
Would love to have that 6 in my current 51.
This is my thrid one
If i still had the engine i would gladly give it to u. But its gone my friend
I really like your Henry J and it's nice that it's built here in Holland (10 miles from where i was born).
Kaiser Jeeps or Nekaf as we call them are still really popular in Holland (still more than 1000 registrated).
The passenger cars from Kaiser on the other hand are really rare and the Henry J
is probably the rarest with less than a handfull remaining. There are some Henry J's in Holland but most of them are later imports from the USA.
This is how the car look now (2 hours ago) with the new rearend in place. It will also get 2-3" higher when the right wheels and tires get on it.
Doing my best. Only Gasser Henry in Sweden so far.....;-)
Looking good, keep it up Hasse!
Looking very good. Another J build couldn't get better.
One pice at a time...... ;-)
Picked up the J yesterday after Mr Palm hade made some weldings and steeringmodifications etc etc.
This is how it sits right now. Also includes some pics on Palms Big Block projekt
no interest of those pics?
See you at Kjula?
Are you going to radius the rear fenderwells or run a real narrow rear end? Looking good btw.
Nån Kjula hoppas jag kunna åka på
Rear fenderwells will be radiused. will use 8,5" wAnsen slotmags on the rear and smaler ones in front
Here is where im at now. Slowly getting closer and closer to a Gasser.....
Hopefully i will try to testdrive it in about 3 weeks
Not that slowly! I´m impressed how quickly you turned this around.
Have had much help from a really tallented friend .
Looks great!! I picked up a 51 last fall...can't wait to get busy on it. Don't know all the different models but mine has no trunk lid and a 4 banger and it's pretty much all complete. And yes it's down for the gasser look. I got a little dodge hemi in the trade I may use it for power. Also thinking about a big 6 banger...just not sure.
Henry J's should have come from the factory with straight axles in the front and narrow 9"ers in the back with big slicks hanging out in the wind. The only option should have the engine and the choices should have been either an injected SBC or a blown 392 Chrysler.
I agree. But i just have a + 300hp CSB and soon maybe a Tunnelram to put on top of it
Will update here soon.
Latest pic of my newest toy for the car
Very nice find !!!! now all you have to do is finish it .
Just what im planing to do
