Built this truck a couple of years ago. That pile of stuff is the bed before.
This is a great thread. You guys are amazing. In the late 50s-early 60s we didn't even look at rusted crap, but there was still a lot to choose from. It also hadn't had as much time to rot. Great work here, fun to see.
My current '32 5 window jig saw puzzle.
This is one of the Best threads on the HAMB. Thanks guys!
This is one of the BEST damn threads on the HAMB! Here's the start of my 32 five window. I'm not talented enough to do it by myself, but I have a talented friend so here we go......
Built from an old race car.
Yea man, I really love this thread.....really show cases folks drive and vision.
Somebody has really got to want it bad to do this.
Just think if the drive and determination shown here were directed into something world changing. What if our politicians had such drive and determination?
Just picked up this for a friend, he has a lot of patching ahead.
Good to see it out of the rafters
This one's nowhere near as roachy as what a lot of guys start with but I'll put it up here anyways.
Day I got it, no doors, floors are junk etc.
As of last night.
Haha, I was looking at that too as im a vdub nut myself. Would love to get my hands on one of those.
Such a great thread reminds me of the old HAMB. Keep the post coming
hear that? that's the sound of the worlds tiniest violin playing
for the guy who found the '32 coupe in the forest that had a branch fall on it....
Wish I had something this good to start with,,,,,I bought a gas tank and bonnet, got given a radiator surround. Building the rest out of sheet. will try to upload a photo or two soon
Hopefully this is a photo of the left hand rear quarter for my 28 roadster that I made while I was off work over xmas, can post more of the cowl and doors I made if anyone is interested. think I will repost this now I figured how to make the pictures big,
This is the bonnet, gas tank I bought, the rest of the cowl is made from 20 gauge sheet, have the door inner frames done and outer skins made but not putting them together until I have door latches fitted and the body on the frame (T bucket style frame with suicide axel etc)
Ok here's big pix
