1936 Ford pickup
^^^ Now THAT is a mail slot!!
...and yes, I did finish it
^^^Jack, you not only finished it... you did a heck of a job!!
It's rewarding to see a stalled project that I bought in GA back in Nov of 2015 because of a chance meeting at the Dawsonville Moonshine Run a couple weeks earlier with the the friend of a guy I had bought a 1940 Ford pickup project in 2013. They were admiring my 36 cabriolet and read the owner's name and started looking around!
I found and installed a 302 Ford/AOD combination and installed it and got it running and on the road and drove it over 400 miles. I had the new top installed and the interior done and then passed it along to Jack... he added the green among other things!!
Jack and his helpers really stepped up to finish the car and give it a nice overall theme with some neat touches.
I'm honored to be a part of such a chain of events. Ain't hot rods fun?
Especially 1936 Fords!!
Jack's cars make me "GREEN" with envy...............Don.
Hey Al, thanks for the kind words.
Soon after I got the car from @Hamtown Al , my buddy Roger and I tore the car apart for a "frame on" rebuild...mainly to check/fix any of the original build and to do body and paint. We were happily surprised at the high quality work done by the original owner and Al...and the car needed virtually no mechanical re-work. It was a great little car, and most of the changes we made during the rebuild were just body work, paint and cosmetics.
I ALWAYS keep some extra green paint handy for my friends Don...ya thinkin' about a wheel color change?
Jack, thanks for the kind words about that old Ford I pawned off to you.
Here's one I stole, with a little editing from the Hot Rod & Kustom Fallout thread.
I love 36s.
A few I saw while in Quincy Illinois last weekend
