How about an early Chevy grill?
Not quite complete, but I am getting there
Here is a T with a 28 grille shell that I did 3 or 4 years ago. by the way I'd like to find a steel 26 or 7 roadster body
Keep the pics coming guys! The reason I started this thread is because I recently picked up a steel '27 roadster on an A chassis. It has early juice brakes, a stock axle and some other cool stuff in place. We're just going to get it on the road initially, but I'll be building a complete chassis for it in the near future utilizing most of the suspension.
The long term plans for it are a chopped A grill, hand made hood top, axle hanging out in front of the grill shell (spring mounted across split bones under the radiator much like mattblack52's) and more. We'll remove the seat riser to get nice and low in the body (I'm 6' 1"). The windshield will get chopped nice n' low and we'll have tall skinny tires on it with steel wheels.
So that's why I'm gathering info... thanks for the great pics and info guys, I'm looking forward to more and more more!
And don't laugh at the "street roddy" wheels on my pics. They're ALREADY gone and I have a set of four NOS never before mounted '49-51 Ford passenger car wheels already on there with skinny tires... just no pics since then.
Same car Pete, no fenders with Bias Plys & Radars
Mine, sold earlier this year.........
Lets see more ! TTT
Mine, '28-29 looks great on a '26-'27.
Polecat, did you chop/narrow yours? More pics please!
WOW. Man that is one fine looking ride. Maybe someday I can get mine to be close to that right there!
Here is my A shell
It's stock height and width.
A few more pics
Another pic, Daddio!
Man, I'll never tire of seeing your Tudor, or PoleCat's peek-up!
Damn I miss my old hot rod.....
I had been leaning towards a narrow 28/29 for my Modified but just found a Whippet shell that I plan to narrow a little here and there. my rails are 17" wide at the grill location. (really want a track nose fabb'd for it but its not in my budget right now)
Here is our 27 T, with an A grill shell...
Damn I love the looks of that thing.
Long term project though!
here is some of mine still working on it
A distraction has been recently eliminated, so we'll see...maybe I'll get back on it.
I've seen this pop up in other threads from time to time. Awesome!!
Here is a pic of mine at the frog follies. It is a 30 truck that has been shortened and i took some of the peak out of it.Happy holidays to everyone Eric
Keepin' it alive!
Six months, anything new?
