    Don't see too many of these in my neck of the woods. So, figured to give it a whirl...what to do with this gem? :) ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1429796217.383568.jpg
     
  2. Might make a pretty cool gasser.

  13. They all came with the flathead six. First year for the column shift three speed for Plymouth. VERY cool car. Wish I still had my '39 coupe.

  15. I'll be in the minority here but this is how I'd like to do one..
    25" chrysler motor with mild cam/trick intake/dual exhaust.
    explorer rear axle...rebuilt front end with dropped uprights..short coils and blocks in the back sitting the car looooooooooooow.
    T-5 transmission
    semi gloss black paint
    flat-gray center Saltflats or gray center American torque thrusts with black tires

    D'OH! I misread the title as PONTIAC for some reason. Cool either way!

    I'd like to see how she looks with the hood sides and bumpers removed.

    I like your style and thoughts. From what I have researched speed parts are hard to come by for flat 6. I'm in need of some!!!!

    I looked into a flat 6 too and found the parts were hard to come by but they're out there.

    I've seen multi carb setups from time to time. I'm not sure about high heads though.
     
  19. TAIL DRAGGER.....skirts please!!!! and low low low.
     
  20. I wouldn't use skirts or fake spotlights or antennas or wide whites unless I was planning to chop the top.
    Then I would. Hell, if I chopped the top I may even fill the quarter windows....But that's just me. Your mileage may vary.

  22. Neat car, I think the taildragger custom look goes well with those.
     
  23. They make cool hotrods. Drop it some with a California rake. A hotted up V-8 and babam your done.

    Baby hemi or big hemi and custom. Still speed parts around for the six and check threads here. There's some guys with a screaming six running 8s in a rail.
     
  27. WOW! Just set back and admire it for awhile.
