well she aint the pertyest but its all original + some era correct "flash" and its mine---
Hey, Adam. It looks like I'm not the only one with no windshield wipers! I'm trying to come up with something creative rather than just cut the holes open again and install stock style. Mine is post # 290 in this thread. Have any ideas what you want to do with yours?
heres an update on mine
1949 Ford - V8 Flathead
Geez...all these shoebies really make me want to dig out our '49 2 door sedan at the ranch...
That looks really good. Just enough chop! Great!
I LOVE that color!!!!
Yeah, I am stoked on the color...and everything else. Luckily, my friend that I bought it from owns a custom paint shop and he works with a great pinstriper. I think it's the most "done" car I have ever gotten my hands on, just easy stuff left to do. I found and bought a grill today, and just have to put bumpers on it. I already have the back glass and just need to leave it at the glass shop for a few days for the quarter windows and windshield. I was going to drive it to work today but it was supposed to rain...but didn't.
Russerts-I am not going to run wipers on it, just Rain-x and a prayer!
There are some amazing cars on this thread, I am interested to see what else shows up on here...
I'm in, nothing special, but she treats me oh so good!!
had one for a while, just got pics up. gotta join the club
This is my '50 Ford.... almost ready for the road.
Looks good, I am glad to see there will be a nice shoebox on the CF streets...
Lookin' good, I like the color.
My 1950 Ford
Shoebox50 good to have you,i knew you would join.
Concept picture is a little old but am working on a deal for a Cal Custom smooth grill now. Didn't get to the skirts this winter as planned. 40 Stude coupe followed me home one day and has occupied my time. Photo was taken a coupe of years ago at Bob's Gasoline Alley in Cuba, MO.
Anyone have pictures or help in chopping the convertible top? Car was originally a Vicky, has a 49-50 top with poor window fitment so figure I can't make it much worse by chopping it and trying to get things lined up a little better.
327/TH350, 8" RR, old school pacer sub frame, new Coker WW tires & 15" wheels (blew out a belt on the old tires last year).
Paint is Chrysler Turbine Bronze.
It's amazing how just a couple inches can make a HUGE difference the overall look of a vehicle. The chop on the ragtop looks perfect and the altitude is nice with the rear whitewall just peaking out. Can't wait to see the photochop become reality.
Me and The Shoebox..Nothing fancy
We drive it everywhere and at one point was our only car..Even tow with it.
this is for pepeford50, took this at gnrs '09
I am working on this 50 shoebox hope the photo downloads. Masterson Kustoms did all the leading so I suppose this is a lead sled. It is in primer so far.
Pics of the 50 since its been on the road...
Some cool stuff goin' on w/this one! Nice!
Anyone ever thrown an S10 frame under one of these?
^^^^^ The 50 above has an S-10 front clip with 2x3 and caged the rest of the way back.
