    Ivan is a vintage racer and your wish was his intentions when he bought. Don't know about that now. I would like to see it Cadillac powered once again OR straight eight powered.

    Not to piss anybody off. I sure agree with a BUNCH of guys here: It is COOL to see some of the early setups, BEFORE Ford flatties really took over for a while, then SBCs, etc.

    Hotrodding was ALWAYS a COOL sport. It is just keen to see all the things guys tried (OFTEN winning, too!) with engines that were not necessarily common OR cheap.

    I am about to get started on my 32 terraplane rumble seat roadster, The body was fairly straight, a few holes in the floor and some minor dings by the rumble seat. The fenders were there but are fairly banged up so I was going to build it fenderless. I am also missing the original grill and someone stole the doors. I was going to attatch some phics but I have no Idea how

    Once got a 36 Terraplane 2door sedan for free, complete except for engine/trans, and traded for a 27 Essex 2-door sedan frame and all sheet metal. Sold 'em both before much else happened.

    Don't know what I was thinking. It is not a 350. It is 1967 327 engine.

    So here are some photos of my Essex Terraplane the body is screwed down to 2x6's to keep it square. The body was pretty straight, a few small dents on the back underneath the rumbleseat, and someone has stolen the doors

    This truck (from one of the Syracuse threads) is local to Western NY. It is a sweet little truck.

    Good luck finding doors, you'll probably have to make them.
     
  20. Hadnt seen this thread before. Ive a social group, called Hudsons of the twenties. See avatar under my user avatar. My 29 Hudson was built as a rr, and i brought it from the builder, and gave it a hot rod make over. I got it, because it sT right, and i knew i could turn it from the pig that it was, into something cool. I have a makeover thread on the Gold Chainers CC social group, if anyone wants to see what i did. Dont know how to provide a link from my phone, but its easy to find. :)
