  3. Glad to hear your going to make it Andy. I'm already jonesing for Autorama. Taking my '34. It will be in the Singlefinger booth.

    I need to get busy on the '34 - needs side glass and interior work. I've got gasser fever and have been working on my Anglia.

    Hey now that's not nice....if I built a RestoRod like your '34 I probably could get it done for the 2012 Bonneville......probably still couldn't. :D Damn it I'm slow!

    I'm not working on any deadlines. I have some miles to put on my '35 and a business to start so I'm just gonna take my time and get it done whenever.

    Hey guys, I know this is a real long shot but if it can happen it can happen here. I built a 34 5W coupe for my cousin back in the mid 70s. When finished it it was all steel with a filled roof. Painted dark blue with a grey interior. The firewall was a welded in flat firewall following the curve of the cowl. It had the stock large headlights, SBC with 350 turbohydro, 8" Mustang rear with coil springs and 4 link. Front had a dropped tube w/forged ends, Mustang 4 piston calipers and rotors, 4 link front suspension and a leaf spring that sat up in the crossmember 1". A Mustang steering box. It had American 200S that where polished 4" on front 8-1/2" on the rear. My cousin Richie Balsamo lived on LI NY and moved to FLA. He sold the car in the early to mid 80 when he moved, I think he sold it while in NY. He died 12 years ago and I would really like to see the car again and see how it has faired all these years. I will try to locate some pictures but I don't know if I have any. Thanks a lot.

    The grille, hood, cowl, inner fenders, piece in the door windows, dash, wheel wells....that's all I can think of right now. I know there are a list of little differences between the two.

    Well they both do but the blister is different between a 1933-1934. It's kind of hard to explain without a picture that I don't have haha

    Here's one example on a 33 the hood rests on the radiator because it does not have the notch in the firewall for it to like the 34's do.

    The hood on a '33 has a bead all the way around the front where the '34 does not.

    The grille shells are completely different. 34 grille shell comes together more at a butt joint like a commercial plow.

    I think the front crossmembers are different too.

    Oh ya! I think the cross members are different like JJ said.. There's a lot of threads and posts about the specifics on the differences.

    Was an old stock car racer...body was cut into pieces and stored above my bodyman's shop office..a total mess! Was only able to save the top.
