    I posted about this car a few weeks ago. It sold at an auction yesterday. Turns out this car was supposed to be built by the guy who built one of the Oscar Meyer wiener mobiles. They said they had some pics and documents for that claim. I did get to see a couple pics of it from when it was used as a show car. The owner bought it in 1967 and still had a copy of the 67 title. It is a 41 Chevy to start with. Guesses as to what the back end were that it was a MG or Jag? It still had a straight 6, unknown trans, 2 seater.

    Reminds me of how a 40 Willys coupe can look when in the wrong hands.
    Except this one is cool.

    Chances are it's all butt welded, file finished with lead and NO bondo. Customisers did similar down here years ago with early Holdens. True craftsmen in their own right.

    First look it was ugly but the more you look at the details it starts to grow on you. Seriuos skills to get the cowl/hood area to flow.

    Sorry to hear that. I don't think the previous owner had been keeping up with his cars for quite a few years. Are you going to the auction with the 39 Ford?

    You would never guess it began life as a 41 Chevy. That's cool.

    Those 216 goodies are pretty rare! I hope you put up some pics, along with some build pics of the car.
    I like it!
