    Last weekend I went to San Luis Roadsters 40th run. Great run in San Luis Obispo,Ca. A friend told me about a 36 3/window for sale in Santa Maria 20 mins. south. I went to see it Friday afternoon and found out it is a coupe I've been drooling over at the Bent Axles show every July. Jerry Gaskill bought it in 1974 from original owners son. Jerry finished it in 1976. Paint and body work by Sam Foose super dark black. White leather, 41 bumpers, 40 chrome steering column, smooth hood sides, white top insert, 350/350 , 9'' rear, duel appleton spots, Today I went up and brought it home.Didn't want to drive with the old tires.https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/jerry-gaskill-santa-maria-ca.986921/ IMG_3437.jpg IMG_3457.jpg IMG_6795.jpg IMG_6797.jpg IMG_6799.jpg IMG_6810.jpg IMG_6816.jpg IMG_6818.jpg IMG_6881.jpg IMG_6887 (1).jpg

    307 was his first motor, he replaced it 10k miles ago with a 350. Frank

    My absolute favorite pre-war car, period. The Hot Wheels version hooked me. Nice score, is the dog eyeballing it for a chop?

    I can appreciate the desire to "make it your own" by switching out the tire/wheel combination, but in my opinion that car is perfection as is.
    Beautiful car, enjoy!

    Nothing there to change, other than the oil once in a while. It's perfect just the way it is. Drive the wheels off of it.

    Beautiful. I'd do Torque Thrusts and blackwalls, but I'm a hot rod kinda guy. Keep a set of steelies and WW for when you want a change. Can't go wrong either way.
