    Don't know who Tommy's uncle is, or was, but I think I probably would have liked him. He definitely wasn't afraid to act on his plan and the expression on the kid's face says he thought the whole thing was pretty cool. You may never find out anymore about it but, it's nice to know it existed.

    Well state side it looks like a 32-4 ford truck grill
    A 30-1 ford cowl 32 ford quarters and chevy doors with a hell of a lot of door hinges!

    maybe a chevy firewall? Looks like it fits well maybe that’s a clue into the cowls original purpose

    dash rail looks like a home made cover that echos the 30-1 looks but looking at how odd the windshield frame and posts are I wonder if it didn’t start as like a fire truck open cowl? Or similar

    Certainly not in heard of combo. @bobbleed ’s green roadster is a mix of A and 32 as well

    After taking a second… or forth? Look to see the floor/channel after @A Boner mentioned it you can see the frame rail is normal. I thought the front tube looked too tiny for rails. If you look at the beef in back it’s similar. I think the front tubes are receivers for a nerf bar. It’s got holes further back in the top to put a bolt threw it all.

    love trying to figure out what it is your looking at in a photo like this!

    no help on the tail lights but they do have an early 60’s mopar vibe
