Hot Rods I bought an old 1934 Ford hotrod out of OK...anyone have any history on it??

  1. I may do the bellhouing mounts. I am not 100% sure I am using this frame, the whole X member is cut out. But regardless, those bellhousing mounts would be simple as long as they do not interfear with pedals (If I don't do hanging pedals)...lots to think about

  2. It's my favorite. So fun to play pretend haha!
     
  3. Small update of sorts...my good friend Tim owned a nice 34 5W that I grew up around. It has Spokane hotrodding history dating back to the 50’s. He sold it to gentleman in Oregon probably 15 years ago, and the car got redone. I got in touch with the owner, and my brother (who had a 34 5W) was able to purchase the interior from the car. Everything but the seat.

    Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, my brother decided to sell his 34 project to buy another car, and I was able to buy the interior from him. And I happen to have a seat that somewhat matches, so I now have an old black and white interior for the car! I have the headliner as well, although not pictured.

  4. I pushed the ol coupe to my other garage, to do some work on it. Swapped spots with my roadster. I had not gotten a picture of these two cars together yet so thought it was a good opportunity. I put 5 spokes in the coupe, and also thinking of running the goofy Buick tail lights. I also upgraded my grill to the original grill that came with my roadster in a twist of fate. Like Johnny Cash sings “one piece at a time”

    Still looking for any information on this coupes former life

    Too much cool for one man. Those two 34's and that ol' fridge truck.
     
  6. That's a little less then half my fleet. I sometimes feel overwhelmed, or trapped by my own doing...but I usually snap out of it
     
  7. The five spokes look great..

    If I lived closer I'd try to relieve you of that black seat.

    How about there??

    Edit: oohhh that IS the seat mentioned above. I read that as you had a second seat that was black and white.

    I'll go back to my corner now.

  12. Yeah, I got everything EXCEPT a seat, but I had already picked the black set up.

  13. My friend John was at the LA roadster show and sent me a pic of this dash and asked if I wanted it. I replied YES, and got it home, put my gauges in it and put in the car. Looks like it’s been there forever. I love love love stuff like this

    It looks great and I am enjoying the build and the style. It’s definitely got the look

  18. I’ve been working on the front end for this car, the whole front end was chrome but was really dirty and the axle was stock. I got offered an old chrome dropped axle from a friend, so have been cleaning and polishing all the old chrome. Today I got it under the car, reverse reamed the eyes in the spindle arms sonthe tie rod clears the wishbones, and mocked the fenders back on it. Even for just a couple bolts holding it together, it fits pretty nice. I’m stoked to see this thing come together

  21. Another twist of fate, a good friend of mine offered me the full set of chrome garnish from his 34 5W as he had plans to chop it. I bought them and sold my old garnish.

    Car is having the floor replaced and some mild repairs done at this time by a very good friend of mine. So it’s still getting pecked at, but it’s kind of a “back burner” project for him. Hopefully later this year I will have it back

    I wondered if this one was still part of your fleet.......
     
  23. I was just thinking on the earlier pictures after you put the interior in that it needs some chrome window moldings. Knowing you I knew we'd seem them sooner or later though and here we are!

    Cool coupe with cool parts! I really like the dash.
     
  26. Unfortunately not this year, the damn weather has been too crappy. The pass looks like a mess, I feel its better to just stay here today.

    Hey Chris, the fenders are in the way - can't see that nice old chrome! Lol
     
  28. You do love old chrome....:)
     
  29. Looking good, Chris. My 1/25th model says it'd look great if it was slammed a bit.
