    Don't have any pics from the magazine article, just have the old magazine itself. It had short fenders on it then and a LaSalle grille. Mo ugly than it is now. :p
     
  2. Looks like a just in time rescue! Boy, that thing is fubar.
    Good on you for stepping up, ANY 3 window is worth saving IMO. Keep the updates coming.

    I don't think this version looks all that bad at all , headlight mounts look a little awkward but ...looks waay better to my eye than the laid back swoopy grill and the fake spindle mounts

    Thanks Kid for posting that. It was weird then in that it had the axle was a spring-in-front like a '37.
    Looks like it had a big overbite!!!

    I think I could have made the LaSalle grill work, but I agree the aluminum grille and DEFINITELY the 10 spokes are going away!! Anyone have a chopped '33 grille they want to sell ?????

    KOOL car ! Make it yours ! Your Car Your Deal ! It's probably because I'm old, if I found an old magazine car that was in good condition, I think I'd leave it as is, drive it as a survivor, (IMO great conversation piece)
    by following this, it went through some changes w/ time. Kinda like any car, it's only a original survivor car 1x.
