Love the sound! Nice shirt too (see sig.) . . . maybe you should change the name of your shop?
The only thing sweeter than hearing this thing run again will be the owners smile when he throws it in gear and heads down the road!! Hope he makes the reunion with it this year
That's so cool! What an honor I bet to get to bring it back to life and thanks for the video clip.
I'm gonna go touch myself now.
Ive been out of town for a week, but now im back, Louie brought the tires and rims back over so we put those on and rolled it out for some pics.
Well bleed the brakes and finish a few other little things and be able to take it for a spin, should be early next week.
And one of the pics is with Louie standing in front of the car.
That motor sounds sweet....just can't beat the cool sound of a flathead!
Loui sure looks pleased. Awesome job Jeff!
so cool... he looks happy.
Wow, you're doing a great thing. Must be very rewarding.
This is amazing......on all levels. Good job.
That is one cool looking coupe
Cool, I hope to see it out this summer.
A little more progress, i made upper hoses from stainless bends so i had to polish those, got that done, also go the brakes bled and working and got the front wood floorboards in place and made a metal trans cover, mounted the seat on some seat tracks and tidied up the seat springs and threw some burlap on it till the seat can be upholstered. just have to do a few bits and pieces and well be good to go.
PS, Louie wanted me to post on here that Venberg tire in Maplwood helped him out on the mouting and balancing of the tires and wanted to thank them. ive know the Venburg guys as they were customers of one of the parts stores i worked at and they are great guys and do a great job.
Oh great Jeff, now you polished those damn upper hoses and now you HAVE to chrome the fan. It's a slippery slope my friend.
Well, drove it for the first time since 1964, i drove it around the neighborhood the other day, then louie came over and took it for a ride around the neighborhood, he was grinin from ear to ear. His son came with too and went for a ride, i dont think hes ever seen the running or driving ever. so they were happy.
heres a vid of me taking it down the driveway.
