this thing makes me feel funny - absolutely beautiful!
I can't get enough. I am not even a Ford follower, but this car may change my entire look out. You are truly a craftsman and you are building a true piece of art. Just like chevpickup said this thing makes me feel funny there is a tingling..... well I better stop before you think I am "Weird" Keep up the progress!
Wow this is a real first class build. Talent and patience. Makes me wish i never sold my Meteor wagon.
Thanks, guys. With the help of my tiny (4'7") wife, got the tailgate on today. It's got to weigh 150 lbs or more. The tail lights are original ford housings with the ends of 38 Chrysler housings welded on so I can run the 38 Chrysler lenses. These are the same as I put on my Hupmobile. I just love those late 30 Mopar tail lights. I also have a set of the full-basket Chrysler Airflow tail lights for my model A coupe (next build).
This is really a neat build! I love all of the details on it
tons of work, looking good though. nice save
Here's another minor update. I've been waiting on the powder coater. Finally got my bumper brackets back and was able to install the rear bumper. Also added the tail pipe tips. Hope to get the hood hinges back this week so I can get the front fenders on.
hey your garage looks clean in this one....
well we see it at Wavecrest later this year? Car is outstanding..
maybe not CLEAN, but at least a little cleaner.
I'll have to give some thought to Wavecrest. I was hoping to make Woodies on the Wharf in June, but that looks unlikely.
I did get it out of my garage today. My friends Richard and Mike helped me get it loaded and hauled to Richard's shop to stage it for Dave Putman to start on the upholstery. He should start on my car later this week. Here are a couple of pic's. It's looking like a real car now.
WoW!! that looks so sweet. Great job on this build.
Looks amazing, love the dash, well pretty much love it all.
Beautiful! You do great work, Gary!
Thanks, Msalamanca. I think the dash brings some needed brightwork into the picture.
Here are a couple more shots. Richard's shop is a lot bigger than mine; so, the car doesn't look so huge over there.
WOW! And I thought your other car was killer......this is stunning, love the color.
And I haven't even gotten the flathead in my shoebox to start yet. I fail.
Fantastic job, you are a beast!
In one of my previous post I said I wasn't sold on the color of the wheels but the more I study the newer photos I gotta admit I have had a change of heart.
Again,this woody is a knockout! HRP
i've had my wagon exactly 2 years and haven't done anything to it. i fail, too.
perfect! beautiful car!
simply beautiful. green and gold, color of $ eh? fantastic car.
Why have i missed this thred
Great job as usual Gary--can't wait to see it around soon
The car looks great, your workmanship is awesome, if you don't make WOW I look forward to seeing it at GG Woodies coral in Aug.............
Amazing build. From page 1 to now is simply remarkable.
Thanks again Guys. I'm pretty excited. The upholstery should be done next week. We still need to make it run. Ed Umland (Eddie's Chop Shop) and our friend Richard Smith are getting the intake together. I want it to come home under its own power. Richard Sides helped me get the visor on. Here are a few shots from yesterday. That's Dave Putnam upholsterer extraordinaire and sometime car polisher in the pictures.
Here are a couple shots of the interior so far and one of the intake with carbs and linkage attached.
Wow, Gary! That is going to be stunning!
Holy Moly,,this has got to be one of the nicest builds ever on the Hamb,,,love the intake! HRP
Well, I haven't posted in a while. I was too busy trying to get her on the road. She made it to the Good Guys Pleasanton show this past weekend. I had not had her more than 5 miles or so from home before we started out Friday morning. Made it to Pleasanton (little over 100 miles) without a problem. Here are a couple pics. Having trouble uploading more. Will try later.
Wow! This was a great build. Very nice job buddy.
