A couple of pictures of my 28 roadster. All gennie Ford. Nothing newer then 1948.
Looks Good! Is this an intro?
That looks so cool
Your off to a great start.
what kind of shell are you going to run model A or deuce?
damn that is nice
Looking good !
^^^^^^ that coming from a guy who knows nothing about building an av8 roadster!! ^^^^^
Your whole garage scene is cool, dude!
Looks good to me!
Looks Killer! I am diggin that garage.
Started with a roadster body with the quarters cut out to the belt line and a original deuce frame all for $400. The quarters are Brookville, only after market peices. That was 10 yrs ago. Been collecting gennie stuff since. Love the hunt.
post some more pics! that thing is KOOL!
How do you workin such an organized garage???????? can't wait for the finish'd product. Keep up the great work.
Great looking project, but we NEED more pictures!
Aye, More Pictures!
I worked on this car for awhile while it was at the shop I work at. I did the firewall in this car. Thom wanted a spoon gas pedal. What I did was used a piece out of a '34 firewall where the pedal mounts and moved everything around to fit it. There is no metal in that firewall newer than '34
The first pic I was finishing folding the bottom of the quarters over the subrails I just thought it was a cool pic. When I started working on the car the frame was already pinched but it did not fit the body properly or I guess the way we wanted it to. So I cut the top and bottom of both frame rails every 2 inches and pushed them around to where they belonged and welded it back up
I made this tranny hump for it too
I made new subrails in the back to fit the deuce frame. I also made the piece to cover the A spring. I cut the '39 tail lights in too
here it is the day it left our shop. I hope Thom brings it back soon. It is one of my favorite cars to work on and one of my favorite customers to work for
Nice work Kid....
In respect to 1934, Then Brookville - Wonder what the hell, 2011 air is going to do?
Still a nice start -
Sweet hot rod
Nice work. What did you do with the frame/body at the forward indent of the wheel wells? Post some more pictures as the car develops. Fred
Hey kellan thanks for posting more pics of dads car, we need to school him on how to post his. He has pics from the day he stuffed it all into the back of his pickup.
The firewall is amazing, great idea
