    Nice office Joey. Beautiful hotrod.
     
  4. Been a fan of this T for sometime, I prefer the Car Craft version. I like the proportions of the windshield better.

    Real good lookn' "T" , right on the money for'62. It appears to have faired well over the years. They just gotta have that prerequisite true Covico wheel, to fit the era! To me the very next progression would have been a set of Hal's or my fav...American's.

    Cool "T"! Would like to see more hot rods built using cycle fenders. In quite a few states back then Johnny Law required them, and this is a good example of how to make them look very slick and period correct.

    Glad to see it has survived well.
    It'd be great to see it put back in it's '63 configuration and featured in The Rodder's Journal.

    @J.Ukrop...love the black paneled heavy stripe look...Awesome Hotrod that is...I am sure when one has such a vintage icon and/or frankly any vintage survivor it must radiate positive thoughts. Thanks for sharing that with the story...stuff like that is timeless and something one would never tire of...of course that is my opinion...;)

    I like it better with the cycle fenders and striping. Wonder what it ran at the drags?!

    In the third picture the front axle has what looks like keyhole slots between the holes or is this a figment of my imagination?
