    I like how homie can sit in his car... and reach over the cowl to fiddle with the distributor if need be. :)

    SBC... how lame and unoriginal.



    In all seriousness, I think this car is awesome. Outside of Cody Walls, there aren't a whole lot of people building channeled, East Coast style hot rods. It's a real breath of fresh air seeing them today. Check out that tiny hairpin too. Had to shorten it up because of the channel.
     
  6. Very cool car .

    proportions are perfect .

    wonder where it is now ?

    I like how he capped the bologna cut zoomie and didn't square it off and cap it.

    Lot's of cool little details. And I like the color (see below).

    Any greybeard New England guys remember this car? Hartford Autorama?

    I have lived on the east coast all my life and the channeled hot rod was the norm. I have a friend with an 8" channeled deuce. The seat is simply an upholstered 2" foam pad on the floor of the body. It's a four speed car and driving the car is really hard. He handles the car well, but the ergonomics and knee angle of not only using the clutch, but also in braking, makes it impossible for me to drive the car with my bad knee's.

    Holy crap... That makes me happy.
     
  13. Cool car but to me it looks like he hit a curb and knocked the front axle back a few inches from where it should be.....YMMV

  18. There’s an article on the car in Car Kulture Deluxe magazine from a few years ago. And yes, it does get driven every chance the owner gets.

    There is so much to like here.
    1st, I dig the steering wheel layout. I've seen similar on Willys Jeepsters.
    The subtle placements of pinstripe.
    Step over entry.
    Speedy look aerial.
    Use of juice clutch.
    Plus the features already mentioned.
    Good work Ryan. I used to have a vast collection of rod mags. I can't remember that one.

    I like how a 265 was considered "big inch" back then!

    Have I seen that Hot Rod somewhere...Yes I have! The car participated a show here in Helsinki, Finland nine years ago. It was eye catching being so well proportioned that I took some pictures of it. Luckily found them IMG_0211.JPG IMG_0212.JPG IMG_0213.JPG IMG_0214.JPG from my archives, here you are...

  23. Just because a TJJ Blog and its resultant H.A.M.B. thread can never have enough pics:

  24. The simplicity is perfect. Unnecessary parts are not there. Beautiful. Stock plug wires would put it right back in time.

  27. The Coffee Grinder was built in Nanticoke, Pa. about 10 miles south of Scranton, Adam and his brother Nick were always into street rods, they had a vending company. Unfortunately they both have died. My dad was good friends with them and also Pat Bilbow that built the Lyndwood Welding dragster frames back then, his shop was 2 or 3 miles away..
     
  28. The Original photos have US Royal Masters straight tread nylon double whitewalls, on the front, the best looking tire ever.
