Here we go.
I like Model 40's, I like 3W's and I like Arduns!!!
What I think? I think I'm envious!
Looks like the perfect real 33 Coupe to me.
I was hoping you were going to show us. I spent awhile last night reading anothet thread on the 5 window Rudy chopped and saw that art work in the back ground. Want to see more. Thats a good looking 3w keep us informed.
If Rudy built it you can guarantee it's the best....
awesome hot rod
I am trying to load more pictures but its a pain in the ....
wow. That sits perfect to me. Nice work!
This car was pretty perfect when I first got it, no patch panels no rust no dents.....It was pretty nice.
As I stated before in the other thread I think it's awesome!!!! It sucks to cover up that engine with a hood top but I always think Model 40's look better with a hood then without.
Tell us a little about the engine. Is it an original Ardun Conversion? Any cool back story on how you found it? How'd you get hooked up with Rudy?
Looks like it's going to be a stunner!!! How about showing some of your other cars when you get a chance
bad ass looking ride
Cool, Rudy has to be my favorite builder out there. It just seems like every car he's done that I've seen has been spot on and perfectly aligned with my tastes. Shit I didn't know I could love a '40 Merc that much until I seen the Hoffman car. He's just got a great eye for this and the talent to see it through. Definitely inspiring to say the least....
I'm just starting to collect things for my '33 and I've got a lot of stuff to get started so it's nice to see cars like this popping up to get me going. My ultimate find would be a S.Co.T blower but that's outta my price range but I'm trying to go for an earlier 40's build so really it'll make more sense to use the intake that I have.
Keep us posted!
Loading pictures is a bitch on this site.......I tried to do the flicker thing but could not figure it out. If I can get help I will load pic's.....Can anyone help set this up for me so I can just go and load........I take pictures at Rudy every week......of all kids of shit. Even Rudy.
PM sent on hosting and posting images.
Wow! Just a perfect hot rod in the making.
Are those ArDun heads originals or modern repops?
Very Cool Ride! Love the Ardun. What do you have for a trans? I'm subscribed, need some ideas for my 34 5w Coupe.
We are in process of a one piece hood as we speak.......Original hood welded into one piece and spring loaded and locked so it will not rattle or move at those very high speeds......no sides and a small rise in the center to help air flow with the Ardun.....
The Blisters need to be cut for the heads to clear and then rolled over, I will post pic's when done with them.....Still trying to get a handle on the posting pic's....Soon
We've GOT to be kept up to date on this one. Any time Rudy is involved your guaranteed the end result will be stunning. I've always perfered '33's over '34's (just think the delicate concave grille is better looking) so I'm going to keep my eye on this one.
Look to be the repops to the trained eye. Not that there's anything wrong with that!
Hmm.. that hot rod is the stuff wet dreams are made of.
Here's some pics scott sent me...and by the way scott, next set of pics you send me...make them full size.
This set is kinda small, but here they are...
How did you do that........You can be my new picture poster? Huh?
ancient chinese secret...now about those wire wheels...
There on rudy's new shop truck......want pic's?
