Coupe is Outlaw body with steel fenders, sold it to build the roadster - all steel.
This is ironic. I have had this copy of American Rodder for decades, never clued in to what the cover photo was till last night! Its a color shot of the Billy Foster RP!^^ And ITS PINK! I like it even more now!
paint on this thing was incredible!
Paint was a mile deep! Absolutely beautiful.
BC car. Bitchin! Read somewhere that the green glass was out of an old Greyhound bus. Pretty sure it was for sale awhile back.
Pretty interesting way the splash aprons were used with the channel job.
Yes, he had a sign on it at the last Ocean Park show, HAMB name is 5W32
Edit: further to this, I was just looking on the Ocean park 2015 thread, car was sold at that show.
I really like it, its very different, even for the era.
I was wondering about this too. I'd never seen one like it. I know that some of the door sheet metal and hardware was T derived, but never seen one with a T cowl unless it was a sedan.
I have 2 of the A versions on the stake bed of mr 32 BB 131-1/2 ton. After I saw the above post I was scratching my head.
Yep, one sinister looking coupe.
Steve knows how a hot rod is supposed to look, he also has/had a very cool mint green deuce hiboy roadster a couple of years ago.
Dale Fairfax's 32 coupe
^^^ Wow. Where has Dale Fairfax been ? ^^^ Hope he is well. Great tech poster. ^^
Meanwhile .... back at the ranch .....
.....how about some imports ? !!!!
Triumph Dolomite Roadster
Talbots ^^^ bevy of 'em ..... hot rods in every way underneath.
MHV Peugeot 402 DS DarlMat Special Roadster
1933 Lancia Astura Double Phaeton
.....then steering back to hopefully a new post .... the Bernie Stein 1932 Ford. Love it.
Sadly, Dale passed on January 4th of this year. May he rest in peace.
Took me a moment to notice that the rear fenders have been widened..
For the first 5 seconds I was thinking "What in gods name is up with that top insert!!"
^^^ That actually made me laugh out loud. Thanks George
That's actually the rare camper option.
Yes, it was dealer-installed, including special badges "Le Grande Tittons"
This car was in R&C a couple years earlier but it waas orange with pie-crusts. I posted a pic of the earlier version on Chips Full fendered T's thread. Check the galaxy freak in the background!
