Took this one from ugly to not half bad. for a friend and customer.
love them 40 chevy coupes had 2 in the past as well as a 38 coupe gorgeous lines
It's cool! I just have seen it right after you posted it.
How'd it go from a wrap around rear window to a small window? Give on the details!
This one is soooo beautiful. Nice work.
Is the after from the same day as the before?
Almost the same day, just 4 years later
After...well, close anyway...still putting it back together.
Honestly.... I think some of the befores are better than the afters? Lol
The project before my current one.
Diggin around my attic today found a couple more for this thread. 57 basket case to
start back in 74.
One more. Fresh out of high school with no money but I stuck it out and did every single thing myself, paint, wiring, upholstery. Kinda impressed my dad who thought I'd never get my shit together. Took me a year and my new bride never bitched a single time that I can remember. Just celebrated our 44th anniversary and shes still putting up with me. Go figure.
Damn my old man would kill for this truck very nice.
Rattle Can Perfect!!!

Farewell, we'll miss you when you're gone little grey truck.
1957 and 2010. Yea it took us awhile to get it done.
Stole my thunder dear,
Here addl pic
You did some nice work rigth there. But I think that's a very nice front end on that truck stock, and I'm not a fan of the naked front end.
With that skill set, you should be capable of building a car front out of them front fenders.
But nice metal finish.
Always nice to be nice, and farther and son build is a great idea!
Just found pictures of my 32 when I bought it, not finished but better than it was.
Very cool car and really like the tow vehicle too. I've got a 650hp version of my own.
Is that Philo Beddoe's old truck without the camper on it? How did you get the road tar out of the bed?lol
rat nest & mold as found.
1st as found a couple years back and the 2nd in my 2 car garage work shop? It is far from done but making progress slowly. Hell I was 80 when I started two years ago & they only let me out every 6 months to work on it.
Here is my 34 sedan before and after.
wow,wow,wow.. holy cats, this thread is an inspiration !!! lots of talent out there for sure !!
