great old east coast coupe ...... love to see more pictures
I don't know if its a survivor but its still alive and has been since 1958
Sort of survivor, at least some of it
Hey, its a start! Now all you need is everything else!
It's a Terraplane- it's a hot rod already.
A few months ago I bought this 35 years on the road survivor. I buffed up the tired old paint and replaced the wooden dash panel added new carpet to replace the rotten piece also new wheels & tires. I had it on the market for a reasonable price. At least 3 people came to see the car and liked it, but walked away from it because it would cost too much to restore it, "So much for Survivors". I like it the way it is.
1957 ,Raced at Colton in 56 3/8 flat eng. broke it,265 chev, after that, still raced, 68, came apart paint uph. show time, raced again. in the garage for 20 yrs, Frame off , leafs and coils Inj. Just driving it, The 40, Just finished the 32 Roadster, A Henry Car, 5 yr. Proj.
Whatever the qualification for the thread, that is one mean looking delivery.
I like it the way it is, they didn't appreciate it...
It sure would be fun to see more about this car. History etc.
Did some work on this 40's era dry lake 32 in my shop recently
The more I thought about it the more I thank the delivery doesn't fit this post THANKS for the comments though .
Here's a rear shot of the 32
^^^ what's the history on this one?^^^
My details are fuzzy, but I know it was ran at the lakes in California in the 30's and 40's as a race car. In 41 or so, the then new 40 Ford they used as a support car was totaled, rolled I think, and the parts from that car, the 40, we're installed in the 32. Engine, transmission, steering column, brakes and such. It saw street duty after that. Then it got put away for many years. My friend heard about the car, and was able to buy it, brought it to Idaho 20 or so years ago. He would drive it once in awhile, but not much. He most certainly did not want to see it damaged in any way, plus it still has a plate glass windshield. I went through the brakes, cleaned the carb, and got it running again for him. Interesting note was finding it has a Packard master cylinder.
Fabulous car. The steering column is newer than '40 Ford. It looks like a '41 or newer.
Here are a couple of what I call survivor;s. And also a survivor can of Old Black Joe.
my 29 roadster survivor
Those are some pretty ginchy roadsters.
