My friend Tim Cantlle's 35 Ford truck.
It is a real 50's hot rod, found as a cab, bed, and fenders, no frame running gear or history.
It is now finished full fendered, 330 hemi, 39 Ford transmission Zephyr gears, 40 Ford rear.
Nice,Keep them coming

Same as above, but with top on.
Bob Routhenwaite's coupe. Nose was Gold, does that count?
Is that Pagan Gold?
I think that is "Sierra Sunrise", salesman speak for utility tan.
That grille has some serious labor in it. Really sets off the '34.
This rodder knew what he was doing when he set up the front end, a tube axle WITH a 4-bar. Somebody's listening ! LOL
Fast Eddie's hot rod T.
The axle was a stock tube axle out of a 37 Ford V8-60.
