Here is my '50 Merc project on Day 1 and last week. Still a lot more work to be done...
my 41- 8 months from the start now in primer, hope to be painted soon
Chassis that needs a cool body put on it. I think a roadster that is wide enough for a 6ft stocky guy.
sb chevy for now with a 4 speed. I wanted to do a HEMI, but the deal fell apart.
This is my 1950 chevy fleetline delux just dropped in a 250 engine and a turbo 350 trans...
here's my new build 1940 pontiac coupe
Heres mine not much to look at just yet.
That looks almost exactly like an idea I have in my head...except I want to do a 4door.
Thanks, I will post more photo's in a few days when it will be close to being on the road.
The way it looked when I went to pick it up. While the body is solid, the engine and trans was a different story...
nice. good year
Here's my 36 GMC Tow Truck, it was built originally in the 40's, still trying to find out the history on it, my dad and i updated the running gear and the suspension, the body is not fixed yet, it will get better over time, but at least I can enjoy it right now and not have to worry about damage!
Just a bit of an update.
That Lincoln is going to be sweet, what engine are you going to run?
someone stole the center section of his roof!
I have a 500 Caddy sitting in there.
1953 GMC 5 window, swapping out the 305/350 for a 5.3L/700r4, 10 bolt rear, keeping the interior semi stock, bagging the rear, and etc.
Day it came home
How it sits today
Here is my roadster taken tonight, its getting there after having to fix previous owners quick fix patch jobs. Still not straight but getting there next is the steering and wiring.
Lets see some more pics of your lakes modified, bitchen stants! Quick Change in it?
As of today
Im at the phase where im still doing the little things like engine work and brakes, fuel system. I've been doing pretty good at collecting parts, so far ive found the '50 Caddy dagmars, '56 Buick portholes, and '56 Packard taillights i am going to install.
fng form california: here's my latest project. started off as a $250.00 ebay truck. when i picked it up it was a slant 6 granny tranny 4 speed longbed with a piperack. now 4;88 in the dana 60 , an efi tunnelramed 440 with a 727 w/3500 stall. i shortened the frame by 1 foot and sectioned the bed and the steps and lowered it alot. about 6 months of afterwork in the evenings and weekends. what do ya think? good and bad please. thank yoyu very much,,..mark
Haring's concept done in 2003? I think...
First real mock up in 2004...
Now in 2010...

Holy Crap! I thought I was going to have issues waking the neighbors. Good Luck with that one.

Getting close to finishing this one for my daughter. I am redoing it; originally built in 1992, needed a lot of minor changes plus wiring, new motor, & gas tank.
