I have posted about my Hot Rod before. It's not everyone's cup of "T". " Around 1963/1964 he had a Model A Coupe with a pretty hot Smallblock. It was a 1956 265 punched out with a Duntov cam, solid lifters, 3 deuces, headers, reworked heads and a dual point distributor. This was linked to a '39 top loader tranny. The wheels were Buick hoops reversed with early Ford centers. The thing is, this guy decided he really wanted a Roadster. In 1964 Car Craft had an article "How to Build a Hot Rod". The guy looked around for a Model A Roadster body, '32 Roadster or even a "T". But in Seattle in '64 I guess it wasn't so easy to find between the rain and restorer's (so the guy says). He decided to follow the article and build a "T" Roadster. This part is pretty cool. So he calls a few Hot Rod buddies and some racer friends and puts out the word. Using the plans in the article, some buddies and lots of beer they weld together a pretty damn nice chassis. Once it's a roller he swaps the drivetrain out of the Model A (his daily driver) and sources a 4" dropped axle. It seems that this would have been around late 1965 sometime. He bought a fiberglass body from Kellison and finished all the plumbing, steering, etc and got her running. Between '66 and '67 the car went through a few changes and by '68 or so the car was running and driving and in various stages of completion. Also, in late '67 he bought a Black on Black '68 Mustang Fastback. The Mustang was a lucky break for me as you'll find out..... According to his memory and the photos I got...it looks like the car went through a few different tire and wheel combos between '66 and 1970. Starting with the reversed Buick steelies, Torque Thrust rears with slicks and spindle mounted spokes with Ansen's on the back. The spokes are 19" and the story goes that a friend of a friend got 'em from Jerry Ruth in the Early to mid 60's. They are not Harley, but appear to be British car maybe? Also he got a Halibrand quick change from one of his Sprint cars and swapped the tri power for dual quads. Another Drag Racer buddy sourced some big Buick rear brakes with cool drilled backing plates. The last pics from 1970/1971 are Black with black button tufted interior, dual quads, a Halibrand 201 Quick Change and the 16" Ansen mags on the back with Goodyear Speedways and spindle mounted Spokes on the front. Around '72/'73 the guy started going through a divorce I think and stopped tagging the plates in '74. Shortly after that the car came apart. The body was mounted on a base and crated up. The frame stripped and stored in the rafters, the suspension came apart, engine was on a stand for display and everything else squirreled away. The miraculous thing.....is that it ALL stayed together for nearly 40 years!!!!!!!!!!!! The guy moved a couple times and was involved in Sprint car, Indy car and drag racing". Well......... It's been a year and I can't find the time to blow the car apart and do a "Preservation" type resto. My business is going crazy and I have to focus on that. So... I threw her on the big auction site in the sky. We'll see what happens.... I really hope it doesn't sell... but as any guy with a roadster knows...it HAS to be in the garage at ALL TIMES. Can't even leave it out over night. That makes it tough to have something that isn't running taking up a stall. I have a couple of "runners"...which makes it all that much worse. Hell, I even considered picking up and enclosed trailer to add another "stall" to rotate cars around. Damn... I was really hoping to get this car together and have a little fun! It is a REALLY nice looking "T". Especially the pic from around '67/'68 with the little kid standing on the seat. I had to price it above the reach of F-wads who will snatch it, blow it apart, paint it candy blue and fill it full of Dakota gauges, Lokar, Billet Specialties and 350/350'ness....(that enough profanity for you)? Just venting.............Gotta get it out of my system........... before I change my mind and cancel the auction. Especially since I have had so many of you guys comment on the car and encourage me.
