Great score! Make it go, stop safely and puts some miles on her.
Nice find and looks solid. The title threw me off. Like the Squirrel we all know.
Congrats... Wouldn't change a thing... Interior Rulez!
I was kinda thrown off by the title too. Really nice car...but doesn't look fast enough for @squirrel
That 283 is more traditional than a Flathead, a lot more reliable too!
Definitely keep the 283! That coupe is totally "hambworthy" now...
I agree!.... My '34 has a 283 also.
Great score. Looks like a nice piece of history.
As the ushers 'suggested' him toward the Exit!
looks a heck of a lot faster than my new model T.
Neat car...hope you can enjoy it for a while as-is.
Thanks all. The 283 is one of the main reasons I bought the car. All new brakes, still single pot mc. Does have safety retainers on banjo axles. Very quiet single exhaust. Uses two passenger side manifolds. Has nice Arvin heater. Can't wait to legally drive the wheels off it !
Hey Squirrel ! What model T ? We got another adventure coming ?
Does anyone know the correct term of the upholstery pattern ?
I picked up a 27 coupe recently. It's a stocker, and close enough to being a decent original car that I dont' want to modify it (yet). So yeah...there might be an adventure...but right now, a real adventure would be a 10 mile trip into town!
But that's a story for another thread.
Congratulations, it looks like you found a gem. HRP
Bowling Ball, hahaha
We cannot wait !
Any plans to, change wheels, stance, etc? I like it as is...
no changes in mind, I like all of it.
I agree with you, it looks right. Congratulations.
You scored! Enjoy your new ride.
Oxblood interior? It looks good to me, just like that trad 283. They're great engines.
That's not Oxblood interior. That's like marblized black and red.
Who cares? It's all kinds of cool inside and out.
Very nice coupe.. I like the plain simple interior and like the old paint.. I agree with you khead47, I wouldn't change a thing....
Give it a once over, tune up, and run up some miles. That car kicks ass.
Id like to see a thread this winter asking what kind of tires to buy, cause you wore the set on the car out this summer.
That is a nice looking car! It looks like a twin to my early '47 Super Deluxe Coupe that I have in the classifieds right now.
Your kidding right...? SBC is as HAMB friendly as "peas-ina-pod"
