You had me at hello.
Nice office Joey. Beautiful hotrod.
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.
Turns out the current owner @Tdesoto276 is on the HAMB
and @Bass did a thread on it a while ago.
Taping your springs IS traditional !!!
I used Naugahyde, holds up well, not that any one noticed....
Seb what did you attach it with snaps?...Naugahyde as in fake leather or suede...just curious
Also did you fellas lube the springs and if so with what before wrapping?
@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?!
My favourite era ... love the details.. squared header collectors,belled exhaust tips,etc,etc.....
In the third picture the front axle has what looks like keyhole slots between the holes or is this a figment of my imagination?
Reflections i believe
I like the custom steering arms on the spindles . Going back to look for a pic of the passenger side
So many different ways to build a model t great observation there. Long live the tiny early Fords!
