I'd leave the top as-is I think. Love the rest of your build plan. Mine's cut 3.5" .
I've been screwing around with the car and collecting more parts. I got a really bitchin set of early Headman Headers for it, as well as an original corvette steering wheel I nabbed on eBay for cheap.
I also decided to see what a 15" tire with these neat old chrome "Moon" caps would look like
Side note, these caps have a star design etched into them. Does anyone recognize who made these? They look too precise to be done at home.
I like it. Circa 1958.
That is the look right there. Fenders & Unchopped perfect!
Awesome car and love the way it's going , you find the coolest goodies!!!
Post #122, Looks real good! Love the hub caps!
You're a fine one to talk lol!
That's great, that is exactly what I am shooting for. That steering wheel evidently came out of a 58 Corvette.
Picked up a key piece at theAlbany OR swap meet last weekend
K, the 4 speed's great and all, but what's the story on those headers in the background?? Hmmmm?
Those are a pair of drag master "U-fab" headers and collectors I picked up. The guy had them on a Model A coupe with an Olds in it in the 60's. I sold them to a NW hot rod legend Russ Meeks, for the restoration of his Nomad. He had the exact collector and collector covers (I guess there was 3 different covers offered) on his Nomad in the 60's and they are long gone. So I delivered them to him at the swap
Wow, cool. The Russ Meeks connection might even be cooler than the headers themselves

Out in the garage screwing around, mocked a couple 15” spare tires/wheels I have on the car with a set of Olds Fiesta caps I just picked up.
Still looking for any information on this car
Well, not a lot of interest in this thread. But I’ll post some occasional stuff until I start actually working on it and I’ll probably start a build thread.
I bought a nice original grill from @MARSHALL LABOW, the grill that came with the car had the upper portion cut off and the grill rechromed. I also bought a really nice tach drive mallory from @hotrodyankee. The parts keep piling up....
I'm still here paying attention....
..... ummmmm' yeah !! Need a ticker tape parade or something ?? Who doesn't pay attention to the sh#t you do ? King of the Lucky B@stard Club.
Where do I send club dues ? Or I'll just keep licking the windows .... really.
Very nice Original '34 Grill you got there, keep the updates coming.
I wish I had your problems with all your Model 40 projects.
Love the 34'. Can't wait to see the progress!
collecting some great stuff for it(dig the etched wheel covers) ! Early Bird and Almost Spring are right around the corner.. Corvette and High Performance as well... Need to find another set of 16" rims... keep the updates coming ..
I'll be selling at Puyallup and shopping as well. Same booth I've had for years. Stop by if you make it out
I think the whitewalls and fiesta caps look perfect neat old hotrod Tom
will do, need to find some small stuff...
Looking forward to the build thread.
I agree with studebaker46.
It deserves a 409, BUT if your heart is set on a high winding SBC I have the makings in the classifieds!
