The Jalopy Journal
Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by Nailhead A-V8, Mar 8, 2020.
I posted this in the Homogenized thread years ago...and yes it's a interesting piece of the Hotrod puzzle...many talented Builders back in the day without the Fanfare or notoriety...I hope it has been given some love after falling into the dark corners of the once active garage...
@Stogy just stumbled across the article if your thread didn't get any answers maybe someone knows this time if it did i'll pull it ...
A 36 Whatzit.
All good Nailhead...very well done it was...sort of a Hybrid...half Custom half Hotrod...bringing things back up is good as stuff gets buried and your right it may get noticed this time...
I had a bunch of pictures of that channeled 36 roadster saved on my phone when it was being auctioned like 2 years ago. That car is sick!
@Rikster did a thread on it as well...before Hemmings did...didn't know that but frankly I am never surprised what has been covered here...
I wonder if Mark Smith ever has got this back to a better place?

As much as we hunt through the various old hot rod/custom mags - we should be looking through the Mechanics Illustrated - Popular Mechanics and the like/same......it would be a guess - the builder never sent photos to main stream hot rod magazines.....just a guess......
Yeah the article was pegging it as a '50's rod but I feel like because it is so understated that it may easily be a '40's rod therefor the people involved aren't around to tell the story...but maybe a former owner or the guy who wandered away before giving the info will pop up
Looks like something Harry Westergard would have built pre war
