    so any more out there? Good sample of very difficult rebuilds so far, showing the ability and ingenuity of the hotrodder at its finest! Here's another shot of how my current project began.

    Love this thread. If anyone here is familiar with my A coupe going together they will understand why.

    First 5w I sold to my brother. Second is a pic of some 5w pieces, which I have since completed a 5w body out of and looking for more pieces to piece together a 2nd 5w body.
    Third is me working on my 3w.

    Now im stuck working on a damn 32 ford :(

    Thanks ... I have all the major pieces gathered now. The car is back apart (Body off) for blasting and the beginning of the long finishing stages.
    Coming on to two years since I started, done it all myself.
    I have been documenting the progress to do a build thread once completed.
     
  14. Look at this fun.

    Can't find my camera, I have another two here I'd share...

    What is the difference in Tudor/5W,3W, and 4-door doors??

    What will interchange?

    What tudor parts can be used in coupe builds?

    a tudor door is the same width as a 3w's door .... different top of course.
    a fordor door is the same width as a 5w's door.... different hinges and a taller top on the B pillar part of the door.

    also i believe a tudor has a little different hinges as well... in length. might be wrong

    Here's a couple of mine. One is when it was about as far apart as I had it when I was preparing to set what was left of the body on a new floor and a different cowl section. The other picture is probably the most recent picture (1 year ago) of it as it awaits me finishing other peoples projects.

    If you want to push the other guys stuff off to the side,
    I know this guy that knows this other guy , that is really good with bondo... I bet he could have it ready to brush some paint on it before dinner time. A little color sanding starting with some 180 grit and should be able to drive it by morning. Just a thought as you know I am always trying to help........
     
  20. thought id read in one of the repro threads that someone was workin on a steel body like brookville, was i dreaming? or is this so, i know my dad deep down wants a 34 3w or 5w but we can never come across one in the right price/shape.

    This '34 belonged to a friend of mine who passed away in a car accident...this is still on of my all time fav. '34's...It was built in the 50's! The body was probably stock, built back then....RIP BOOSTER!!!

    MR CLEAN and mike bowling like this.
  27. Yeah, here's mine. Got the chassis from one guy and found the 5 window body up above the office of my buddy's body shop...cut into pieces and bashed and rusted. It's an old stock car body and it shows. I have some new body parts ordered for it and just fired the engine for the first time today.

  28. Some are... some are customers. I bought the vintage racing car, straightend it out, then built it for a local guy. Its channeled and unchopped...he finished some of the detail work. So I'm sure it looks dumb now.

    The orange and white coupe just went to Magnus here on the Hamb. They are off to Sweden now... He'll put them back nicely, we'll have to check in on him. I also rounded him up all the right parts for his build, so I'm sure its going to be right on, them Swedes know what their doing.

    The twisted 34 is waiting for me...

    Then there is my 34 three window. Not finished yet...too busy to keep on her. Needs to be media blasted and painted....then I'll debute her. Have another blister to make out of steel too, then onto the media blasting and paint. These pics of it are from a few months back. It got inner and outer bottom door patches, rockers, and rear bottom quarters. Soon I'll be freed up and can finish it off. Motor was pulled and gone through as well, painted, custom exaust, etc. Waiting for some new 97's from Eric over at Riley Aotomotive, then we can tear up some streets. Stay tuned...

    I'm bored already with my 34, after I paint it I'm gonna sell or trade for a 34 roadster or 35/36 coupe or roadster. Probably build a 34 roadster later on, and try and get a 35 thru 39 soon. I want something a little bigger and have plenty of hot rods.

    That car was not built in the 50s even if that is the story you got. That car was built in about 2002 to look like it was built in the 50s. It was built by my friend Charlie in oregon. That body was a old race car. He chopped and channeled it over a stock frame added a olds motor and here you have what you see there. It is a scary fast ride.
