Nice, Dave! Good for you! I've been so far out of the loop that I've missed all of this. Looking good, man!
Left side rear quarter tying to front of Z. Left quarter patch panels and detail of metal wrapping over frame.
Brent , Good to hear from you. It's been quite a while. If you get a chance check out the thread on Moe's Modified. It is painted and upholstered. Need to visit him some weekend to document the completion of Moe's Modified ! Bet it looks BITCHIN' ! ! !
Also, check my thread on my '29 "A" Modifed. Loaded it all by myself. Sure was simple and easy to do.
Need to check the thread on your "T".
I'll check 'em all. No need to check my thread, I haven't done a THING! I've been busy remodeling our house and working... and getting ready to be a dad!
Good work though, buddy! I'm psyched for ya.
Brent, Glad to hear of your first on the way ! My wife and I have - 7 children (first husband made 5, second made 2, #3 (me) showed up after the works were turned off - thanks Momma Nature). Then the kids have given us 18 grand-children, 26 great-grandchildren (#27 due in Sep) and 1 Great-Great grandchildren (#2 due in Apr).
Most of the grandchildren say they don't know me and don't recognize me as being related to them . . . NICE !
Hope your first is born healthy and full of life. May they bring you and your wife the most in Joy !
Dave and Bernice
Looking great Dave....Great Thread!!!...Love your Coupe!
Jeff, Thanks so much for your comments. Can hardly wait to get the track nose built ! Yah, I'm working on someone to do the deed.
Man, your ''A'' is gonna look bloody Coll, I love that Norwell rendering of your Coupe final look!
I'm not usually a fan of channeled A's but this one has a great stance and roof height to accommodate
Looks really good so far.
BOP-Nut, Thanks for the comment. Being from northern New York I have always liked the East Coast look. Yah, you know - "East Coast Cool" !
Here are a few to update how my coupe is coming along.
First is Lee checking the front cover for a different way to hook up a water pump (stay tuned).
Second is the motor from a low angle. Shows the motor mount.
Third is a low angle shot of the cab.
Last shot is a low angle of the cab. Car is coming along. Lee is hoping to put in some more hours this week.
LOOOKING GOOOOOOOD Dave!!!!
let me know if you need anything!
Dang Dave!!!!!! 41 Ford dash!,40 ford column drop!,Y block and the killer induction system?!?!?!?!?!
you are the man!!!!!
Have you started the nose section yet!!!!!!
I am using a 41 Ford dash as well.... as a matter of fact..I have one in the diamond and now in the coupe......
very wicked Dave....
Jeff, Thanks so much for the comments. The nose will be after I get it running with just an "A" Shell. Hope I don't have to wait too long to get it built.
The '41 dash is because it is what I have. The dash is one I got at the Long Beach Swap Meet that was all ready narrowed. Sure glad I turned around and got it !
Hope to show you more progress in the next month or so.
Guys, Got quite the hit today. How about CHROME (!) Early V-8 Bacxking Plates and Brake Drums ! ! ! ! Yah, Got some sparkly to hang out in the breeze. Someone had these done in the fifties. Pix are here.
awe those are mighty tasteee..
that's some nice lookin' hardware!!
Evel and Msark, Thanks for the kind remarks, The old "A" Coupe will be looking bad to the bone ! Now hope i runs as good as i looks.
Well Guys not much to share. "A" went on back burner. No one to work on it. Lost my wife in Apr Had $6K of tools stolen from my shop. I'm not crying as I hope that the future will see the car on the road.
All the best to you all !
Just looked at your build Dave, Great looking car, I hope your life takes an upward bound in the future, don't let life beat ya,, Tim Jones
Tim, Thanks so much for your kind words. Been off of the HAMB for a while. Got my chopped '41 in my lady's garage. She wants me to bring my '57 F-100 Panel Truck over so we can get it converted to a 460 V-8 Beer Delivery Special !
Good to see you back again Dave ......
