I was out in my 29 Tudor one day and a guy comes over checking it out and mentions there's a "old car" in his mothers barn that belonged to his dad before he passed away and they needed to sell it, all he knew was it was a convertible and had a rumble seat, of course I perked up and made arrangements to come look at it because it's less than 10 miles from my house. When I got there we went around back to an old chicken house that can't be seen from the road and that's where it was, along with tons of other parts and junk. At one time this guy had around forty cars, I knew because this was the last one left it must have meant something to them, she said they drove it home in 1955 and he had tore it down and started restoring it before he got sick. I found most of the parts I would have wanted scattered here and there, except the hood and windshield frame. They wanted me to make an offer on it but I told them to just think about and let me know because I don't price someone's stuff, especially something that meant something to them. Of course they thought it was worth three times what I wanted to pay for it but they finally come down and we made the deal. From what I've gathered it's a pretty rare car, being a late 31 model. I know it's not a roadster but I've seen several nice Cabriolet hot rods built and I look forward to building it. I can't decide what direction to go with it, the original chassis is in great shape and I think the engine was rebuilt right before he quit working on it because it has good compression. So I could try to find some hop-up parts and go that route or an old six, flat head or later V8. Adams Hot Rod Shop is here in town, he builds some of the finest 32's in the country today and I could get them to build me a deuce chassis for it, I just don't know if I want to drop that much in it right now though. Any help or thoughts from you guys would be greatly appreciated, this is my first post on HAMB, glad I found this site!
