    Wow, What a find. I found a 33 Studebaker in a barn, all original with 61K on the odometer, which I believe to be original miles. Cleaned the fuel tank, rebuilt carb and brakes. Fired right up and purred like a kitten. Sold it and it went to Canada somewhere. Must be some kind of pull for 33-34 cars, as mentioned before. LOL

    Chris, with your ability to come up with good vintage tin, you will no doubt find a 34 3 window soon! Your family has a tremendous collection of old Fords that are the envy of the rest of us.

    fremont rugrat - that 33 Studebaker was in tremendous condition! Wish my coupe had come out of the barn in that type of condition.

    Bolted on a few parts this weekend - the rear fenders, gas tank cover, inner front fenders, steering box and column, drag link, and dash. Next weekend I hope to get to the front fenders, running boards, hood and grille. Then I will take some more pics and post them - all in the original patina.

    Got the front fenders and running boards on. Still got to clean up the hood and grille and get them installed before I roll it out for some pics. Man it looks good as a complete car!

    Got most of the parts bolted on the car - fenders, running boards, dash etc. The only thing left is the hood and grill, and then this barn find will be all together as a roller and using the parts that came with the purchase. Will get the car out of the garage soon for some better photos, but here are a few pics to give you an idea of what the car looks like now.

    I wish I could be driving it by summer, but this project has to wait its turn. Got to get the 33 coupe and 53 convert done first. Still looking for a place with a bigger shop...they don't seem to come up very often in this area. Still following the progress of your roadster. Great job you are doing on that hemi-powered A!

    Only thing missing is a chair in the garage to sit in just to look at it. :)

    Thanks, I have been following your build of a 34 three window. You have done a tremendous job with your Cadillac-powered coupe!

    This is a pic from the 60's. Although the pic shows a 33 three window, I like the style of that build and would follow it with my barn find coupe. The only question is whether to leave the old patina or go with new paint.

    :)Well ,the patina is nice for a while, but the old car needs a new outlook on life. Don't try to be different like everybody else. It's your car, do as you like with it ,:cool: My point is enjoy it don't rush into any changes. Get that chair in your shop and set and look at it.

    Hey, I did not get to work on the coupe this past weekend - went looking at vintage tin instead. Took my buddy Dale with me (he has a nice 27 Ford roadster with a flathead V8) and we checked out a couple of local tin sites. One of them belongs to a Hamber by the name of Budd - lots of old tin including a couple of Model A roadster pickups, a couple of Model A coupes - and a bunch of others - are sitting around an old machine shop from the 30's or 40's. Budd still keeps the machine shop in business with all the old machinery.

    Hopefully it will be sunny this weekend and I can roll the coupe out for some pics.

    Hey nothing wrong with a chopped three window, but I think this barn find coupe will stay stock height.
