    that car was one of VERY few hot rods to be featured in Car Life. I should dig that up and post it here.

    Thank you,

    I'll get you some more photos. The axle is a '36 stock drop to it so it's like cheating on an A. I used '32 spindles, '36 brakes and backing plates, '34 drums, and the '36 actuators, model A wishbone, and stock brake rods. It's all Mechanical brakes with a mild drop axle at this point using Ford parts. It took a while to gather all the pieces but I really like the look and I wanted to keep it mechanical. I'm a gadget guy and that's Fords greatest gadget for sure. Tires are 5:00-16 on the front and 7:50-16 rear. Front rims are standard Kelseys while the back are 2" widened Kelseys.

    All the best,
    Tim

    Yes, I have plenty of pictures. The car is for sale. Look for it on page 35 (or so) on the H.A.M.B.

    A few more pictures. The black and whites are previous owners (1957 & early 70s barn-find rescue).

  20. No. Definitely not traditional.
     
  21. Had to look that one up. Apparently 'gay blades' means 'dashing youth'.

    huh?
