  1. Neat find, seems someone long ago was making a hot rod out of it. He changed wheels and trunk handle and modified or switched engines.

    Well ggg its really something we don,t get to see much anymore, and it seems the crowd doesnt want to chop an channel it. Nowadays to get to see one in the flesh, is rare, you can get the exact parts together, but you can't catch the ' patina' of an original. It will be a real attention getter on its own.

    And another thing.... That is NOT safety glass! If you're really going to drive it, changing it out wouldn't be a bad idea. I don't even want to think about how F'ed it would be in an accident.Eek.

    That TRUE barn find is juts fun to GAZE at! THANKS for the great photos, man. I agree with Scooter, something THAT pristine deserves to stay original. (Reminds me of the '23 Stude "Big 6" I saw in a farmer's barn in 1972. And all I could do was drool, because I was in SCHOOL & didn't have two nickels to rub together!)

    Anyway, sincere CONGRATS!!!

    I like that! Looks like one that used to be in Long Beach that had a V-8 60 in it with '40 running gear & Kelsey Hayes wire wheels on it. The guy that owned it used to drive it to work every day. The last time I saw it was about 15 years ago. Don't mess it up by chopping it.

    Yeah, my first reaction when I saw it was that thing looks to be in such good shape and appears to be so complete a restoration might make more sense because it seems to be such a good starting point for that, but I may well be in the minority here on that point.

    There's enough parade "T's" for posterity so cut the shit out of it and make us proud! JMO

    I agree with this approach 100%!

    That car is still around, and turns up at "T" events fairly frequently.

    I agree! Just add a set of kelsey-hayes wires and leave the body alone.

    Hey, That's where I'm at right now. Cold and snowy up here already.

    Nice find, I'd keep it as original as I could. Not a big deal to drive a slow car every now and then.
