    1469134634649.jpg I thought you might get a laugh out of this! It is in no way indicative of the rest of the build. But i started by removing the small tree that had grown through the 32. Thanks for the tip on the doors but it came with all swinging panels. Nice doors, bonnet and a rough deck lid. I thought the axe was funny but actually used the recipro saw.

    Welcome and congratulations!
    That being said, you better post MORE PICTURES "TOOT SWEET" unless you want to face the Wrath Of 3wLarry! ( 10 X worse than the Wrath of Khan!)

    Wow! I'm always shocked when stuff like this is still found. Great score! Do you see any evidence of it being a hot rod at some point?

    There's a set of deuce roadster doors in the classifieds? Somehow I missed that. Amazing find...there can't be too many left in the wild like that. JohnnyA

    There is some evidence of it being a rod at some stage. Looks like late 50's early 60's at a guess. Pin stripes down the quarter panel swages and some work on the cowel sides. Also got the tin snip job on the rear fenders. Would have been a pretty cool ride in it's day. Still is to me!

    1469291836911.jpg Just clearing projects to make room. Sold a 27 dodge today and some model A panels earlier in the week. All I've done is clean it out (found some old coins) and rubbed the paint back to see what was left of it.

    Really hard to show the pin stripes in a photo as they are faint.
