  4. You guys with talent.....!!!! I'm so damn envious as to how you approach such a bad body and end up with a jewel....someone immediately said to chop it and I got disturbed....but after all the great builds here on the HAMB....I'm starting to really appreciate the right chop...Rocky's for example is just an epitome in my eye.....if it's safe, more power to ya....

    Chop time is in the future, but still have a long way to go as need to finish the replacement of original passenger side door with inside and outside patch panels. Finish original firewall and finish original '34 deck lid found on the H.A.M.B. pictured below as there was not a straight panel on this build when started. Once Pete and Jake's built frame is rolling on '35 wire wheels with quick change rear end, planning to cut it between 3 to 5 inch on chop with leaned posts and angles.

    I'm in love ( again)- those coupes look so good, I might have to give up Model "A"s !!

    You running fenders?? (NO)

    Looks freakin' excellent- welcome to the HAMB.

    Mike, your Ford Model A is very cool and I would not give them up, just add to your collection a Model 40!!!
    I greatly appreciate your and everyone's feedback on the H.A.M.B. as this build is a very slow process towards perfection. I have full fenders on my '37 Five Window Ford Coupe, but will not be running full fenders on this '34 Five Window Ford Coupe build considering what condition the original cars front fenders, running boards and missing rear fenders were in as seen in picture below. My friends thought I lost my mind taking on this project, but it had to be saved and that's what Hot Rodders do!!!

    I've had lots of A's, check out the album on my profile page. I actually went and looked at ANOTHER coupe today- old hot rod that had a flathead in it when it was built. It's a beauty! All the right stuff.

    BUT- those '33/34 5 windows with no fenders and a good chop are nothing but downright NASTY!!!

    I like the 5 windows better than the 3 windows. Call me weird, but that's the truth.

    That's got potential up the ying- yang- GO FOR IT!

  15. Hey MR CLEAN,
    I'm done with my A's too!
    Like Mike says, (NASTY) is the correct word to describe a 33/34 Ford 5 window coupe with a good chop!
    Keep up the GOOD work! p.s. (Thanks for the doors!)

    Nice car...Nice project...Nice work.

    Not sure how I missed this thread...but there are so many threads on this forum. As someone told me once on the HAMB...thank you for saving this car.

    I've slowly been building a 33 5W 392 Hemi car too. I'm not chopping mine. It's channeled and I'm already out of room....lol

    The original '34 deck lid that was found on the H.A.M.B. was in nice condition for an original piece. Purchased Billet Hinges from Rocky Hinge Company in Girard, Ohio 330-539-6296. The deck lid body gaps will be the next task in this build.

    Thanks Duncan, The patch panels outlines and shape were perfect from R & J Enterprises in Arkansas City, KS 620-441-0032 with the original '34 doors.
    I highly recommend R & J Enterprises which specializes in '32 thru '34 replacement patch panels. R & J Enterprises is the one stop shop for everything needed on this type of build as Tom makes a great product.

    The original '34 deck lid body gaps needed to be addressed and the results are pictured below. The large gap between the original '34 windshield frame and the roof line will be the next task in this build.

    Halibrandsteve, I addressed the large gap between the original '34 windshield frame and the roof line by test fitting a 1/2 inch down piece of 20 Gauge Steel from Roof line. Then used Metal Brake to bend 20 Gauge Steel piece 3/8 inch inside and drilled inside holes so piece can be held with bolts. Then cut out 2 slots for inside '34 windshield frame brackets. Finally, welded test fitted 1/2 inch down piece of 20 Gauge Steel to Roof line and bolted metal piece in place and the results are pictured below.
