How about a pic. of the front of no. 33? Neat car
The 33 track roadster is just BITCHIN!!!
thanks man...you can see more in my photo section in my profile. i have the body off when you see it in wood stages.
Thanks Charlyw, i appreciate your interest. My Modified is a 29 Whippet steel body on a 2x3 frame with cowl steering, 1/4 eliptecs and 3 twos on a 327
Does anyone have access to the October 1977 issue of 1001 Custom & Rod Ideas and a scanner? There is a reprint of an August 1933 article of "Plans for a Depression Era Dirt Track racer" that may be of interest. I have earmarked the issue due to the detailed drawings in the article.
Here ya go! Have access? Hell I didn't even have to fully extend my arm for this one! (It was sitting on my Printer/scanner!) Do remember to click to enlarge! I just realized that some how I messed up the order. Take a look at the page numbers on each one, and go from there. Hell, it might be easier to print them out. Start with page one on the last post. Sorry guys.
One last page. Remember to click to enlarge!
thanks for scanning those
Sorry, some how I screwed up the order. Here is the first page.
Hey that was our car the wheels are orange with orange scallops and in California the last we knew. That was a fun little car glad to see photos of it still showing up.
Thanks for that need louvres. I have the issue myself, but alas, no scanner. From memory there is another one of this type of article in a book I have at home. I'll have a look for it, and maybe someone will be able to put it up here on the thread also.
any new ones out there??
Here is my latest pile.27 Touring front half,tube frame,Model A engine bored .120 over (213 inches,BABY!) Winfield 7:1 head,Riley dual intake with 94's,40 Ford front and rear axles.Hopefully I will actually complete something,and hopefully soon..
Kirk's Legion special showed up in the newest Street Rodder mag (on the cover in fact. congrats Kirk!) and got me thinkin modifieds again. anyone else havin that itch??
My dad currently owns this car.
Here is the first modified that Dave Gale built,late '60's or early '70's.I got these pictures from his sister upon his passing in October of 2007.Dave was barely in his twenties when he built this one.
Where do you get the rear mounted oval tanks I see on these modified's?
Macs or any other Model T or early Ford parts place, as they were original equipment on Model T's
This modified was built at the Lions Hot Rod shop in McHenry Ill.
Skip I think that is a cool car. Ya done good. I wish mine would have turned out as well.
Anyone have pictures of the one that was in the house of color booth at Btt50's? One of the best I have ever seen
Since I bothered to post, here is an updated photo of mine
...this is a great thread and I just have to add my own car to it. Its nearly finished, next week I start on the exhaust and the headers and then its only to go over the car and make sure everything is tight and all the split pins have been fitted and its start the engine and away we go (I hope) so I have added a couple of pictures of how its going. It has been a 2 year project and I can at last see the light at the end of the tunnel. The firewall and cowl have been made from a wooden buck pattern that I made up from a T Cowl and used a A Model radiator shroud as the pattern for the aluminium surround. The body was designed around the T Bucket and modified. The chassis is a A Model and has been boxed and raised 8" inches in the rear. Hope you all like it.
Holy shit! Show me more of that.
umm, umm, umm, WOW! That is incredible!
It's good to see this thread back up again. As I was going through it I realised the last time I saw it my car wasn't finished so I hadn't posted any pics.
So I will now:
The last 2 cars are killers! XMBird, how about some more pics?
Thanks I go back and forth with this thing....could be FOR SALE again so I can finish my Victoria?
Not fancy... but it's fun.
