Quick mock-up my arse, the things a roller already!!
I'm diggin' it.
Real nice project - lovin the look of it so far. Your 31 coupe was the inspiration for my project - OMG this one might get me building a roadster next!
Very cool man thats going to be a very sanitary roadster
Your last post was yesterday so I assume your out driving it.........right? After all this is not your first day on the bus so it shouldn't take more than a couple days to get it roadworthy.
Definitely excited about another Casny build. Off to a great start.
After seeing your previous builds this one will also be a winner. Great start !!
Great story, project and work.
Looking good, Chris! Are you still thinking about building your own windshield frame?
looks awesome man! subscribed.
awesome start C.C., looking forward to following this build. ~sololobo~
Only a couple of taillight choices 'work' for '28-'31 roadsters...or so I have always known. (or 'thought')
These Hudson units SHOULD have been applied as the 'right stuff' all along. Perfect!
Beautiful body/frame fit, superb sheet metal work. How are you shaping the rectang tube sub rails? (look to be some 'tight' radii...)
Looking great as always, Chris!
Schweet, love the tail lights.
Very Cool project, wish I had the time and space to do a build right like you are..
Cool roadster. I like the tail lights. Can't wait to see what you do with it. See if you can track down some history on that thing.
Chris , love the roadster... The Hudson taillights are killer ...way to go on thinking out of the box and putting those on the roadster... Said for Calori coupe .. I have never seen them on anything else on the road....keep the updates coming.. my hats off to you... nice build
nice roadster the tail lights look great!
Even the photos are composed well. The roadster is coming out really well. Will it be black, Chris?
Damm Cool build!
After having a look at your blog i can see its a LOT further along than you're giving off here mate! It looks absolutely awesome though, and i love the tail lights. Great choice and one that has clearly been overlooked for a lot of years.
where'd he go?
Must be finished driver by now,,this guy works fast. HRP
Some frame pictures. I'm using deuce rails with model A front and rear cross members. I built the X member.
Front crossmember, riveted in.
X member with T5 transmission
I got a little creative with the 39 pedals.
Few more frame pics.
I'm using a Winters Quickchange with 36 bells, axles and radius rods.
My engine choice, for this car was an early 265 Chevrolet, built in 1956. Having owned alot of cool engines in the past, except for an early Chevrolet, it was time to finally go for it. The small size was also a factor, since the car will have a full hood.
skills man, skills.
Some more bodywork/primer.
That door needs some more tweaking.
