Latest update....swaped out the worn 1950 flathead for a re-built flathead of the same vintage....next up is bodywork and paint!! Ford Washington Blue...what do ya think???
I also plan on moving the radiator back to stock position.... See pics below...
So far, from this.....
Cool daily also...
Thanks 62cadd...the 55 has never let me down!
As of 2/14/2011....moved the radiator up and closer to the engine...did some more bodywork...
Car looks awesome! I should have swung by and checked it out when I was up there this past weekend.
Just a quickie food for thought but have you ever thought about a hood top? My own personal tastes always call for a hood on a Model 40 but that's not to say yours doesn't look rad. In fact it looks like a East Coast hot rod which it is!!!
JJ, thats cool man...mabe in the future...the radiator is still a bit too far out for a stock hood....still a work in progress!! Thanks for the photoshop pic....COOL!!
What happened to the Finned-Heads?
Completley different engine...sold those heads...
I like it alot!!
A '34 5- window is my dream car. Yours looks fantastic! Nicely done my friend.
Thanks, yea...my dream car too..not done until its painted thou...hahaha
That's a fresh little ride.
extra cool!! I like the 2.5" chop. no need to go crazy on a 34.
I think 33-34's were Henry's finest creation ever.
i think it looks rad just the way it is. has nice lines and it looks badass without being too rediculous or over the top. It has that nostalgic feel just by looking at it. great find and great job. it looks 10x better than when you bought it.
Finished up the back today, most of it...gotta head out and do the little stuf!!
Just found this thread, great 5-window you've got there my friend!
Hey Eric, looks great......Glad you saved it from Fred...LOL
Always admired your dedication to this car in that tight shed of yours. Great car man, keep it going!!!
kiwipackard what mill r u runnin looks good, what yr is your ride?
The top hood peice would look sick!!
Very cool looking East coast build, love it.
Another thread highJack me off. Read the rules dude, intro yourself then P.M. the guy. WTF!!!
HAHAHA...do you show him pics?? Would love to hear his opinion of it...He must hate seein it now!! Paint by next summer, Ford Washington Blue, black firewall, black wheels, black grill shell, black tuck and roll interior! ...1 thing at a time!! lol
Thanks for all the kind feedback, guess its coming along the way it should! ~E
For me, the whole point of owning a 34 is the grill however, my origional 34 radiator started leaking pretty bad and my buddy Bill gave a 35 rad to save the rest of the driving season here in NJ...good thing my 32 shell was still hanging on the wall!! `E
Looks good, but looks a couple inches high to me. I'd love to have an old full bodied car like that.
Yea, its a tad high but its not leaking and just a temporary fix until i can get my 34 radiator fixed....
