    I am more interested in why someone would take all those pictures on the shoulder of the
    highway!

    I agree ^^^^ And I'll add that a big block T roadster just makes you say "Oh, Yeah!!"

    There was a young lady near here bought a car looked sorta like that.
    Scubbed it down and bombed it shiny black, put on wide whites and chromies, a speedway tri power and some rams horns, cut down glass 32 shell and made a damn cool little car for pennies.

    Clean it up, make it drive safely and to hell with whether it’s H.A.M.B. friendly or not. Cool hot rods didn’t stop after 1965.
    Me, I’d love to have it. It’s a great car to modify while you drive it. Starting with the square headlights of course. I wouldn’t take it apart unless there’s something dangerous hiding under there though. That’s how interesting cars die, especially if you have other projects.
    Check out the T Bucket threads, tons of ideas there.

    Good start, you should be able to sell those take offs in a hot NY minute. I sold the ones off of my Austin in one day on CL. Cool car, I'm jealous.

    Check out Chip's Bucket of Ugly thread...it's about this exact idea - buying a solid, out-of-style car and making somewhat simple changes and ending up with a cool T bucket...

    I like it! My T started out in a similar style, been making lots of changes to suit my tastes. I would be tempted to keep the "coil over" front end, something different and it looks well built...

    I quickly sold the wheels from my T also. Wasn't ever going to use them, and just taking up space in my shop... 20200105_084249.jpg
