I like to read build threads here on the H.A.M.B and there’s tons of good informative stuff from all the projects people shows so here’s my small contribution and my first built thread. My plan for this –47 Olds model 66 coupe with a flathead six and Hydramatic trans is to built it to a nice taildragger. I have had some progress on this project already but this one is from the beginning. There are a lot of pics in this one… This is how it looks when I bought the car. Some small ass wheels and tires I think it was something like 205-55-14”. When I got it home to my shop I polish the paint just to see how bad it was and change the wheels to more traditional Bf. Goodrich 6.70-15 and a set of Lancer caps. Some sunburn but otherwise a real nice and rust free coupe. Even the driver side floor was solid and underneath no sign of rust either. The chrome was decent enough too. I love those grills. Kustom from factory. These Oldsmobile’s has coil springs in all four corners and a Trailingarm set-up for the rear axle and open driveline compared to Chevy and Buick.
