    Looks like its out of an E type.
     
  2. I have a 1950 with alot of work completed including the wood, Fatman Front and alot of new parts. I would(WOOD) consider trading it for a running and driving 1939-40 Ford Coupe. I'd prefer a Flatty drivetrain but would consider any offers. Take a look at a few photos and let me know if any interest is out there and I'll send you full details. Thanks

    I love the Tfee lowboy with the Jag. I assume thats an early 3.8 or 4.2 with early cam covers. Both excellent powerplants and cheap too acquire especially with the Moss box. Expensive to rebuild. What a concept! I love it.

    I can't say I'm "building" it since I've had it in this condition since the mid-80's, but here's mine:[​IMG][​IMG]
    '50 Plymouth.
     
  10. Here's a pic of a buddy's '40 woody that he bought for $250 in the early 70's. He's been working it since then and this pic was taken a few weeks ago at it's first outing under it's own power (on and off the trailer.....no exhaust or lights, yet).

  11. This is the way I made my woody body look old.I found some bug eaten,but solid pine.Had it dipped to kill any bugs.Then let dry a few months,plane to thickness and there you have it.An old bug eaten body to match my old cowl,fenders,frame,etc,etc,.This will be a top quality body,splined joints,epoxy glue,etc,etc.It will just look beat up.
    I know buying maple ready to go would have been cheaper and easier,(I did that last time) but it would not have give me the look I want.Check out my photo album for all the construction pictures.
    I just installed the car`s top.thanks

    I really like that. Can we see some more photos of the car? Is that representative of a model that Ford made and sold? Or your own creation? Either way, I like it!!
