your car is spot on! soooooo glad your your not using the wheels....
That is one badass model 40.
I can't help but think it would be that much cooler chopped.
Why chop it it when it looks so cool, besides all the rest are chopped....
Adding a stiffener in the from and in the back of the underside of the hood. Also using that metal to hood down the hood, using Ford spring loaded bolts on each side from and rear too keep and original look.....
Some more shots....
Congratulations, what a beautiful hotrod.
GREAT vision and execution! Congrats! Enjoy it!
Checked out your site....nice work and I love the frames....are they low?
I have a 32 3 window that I want to trade for a Roadster project....
I've always liked the look of painted steel wheels with contrasting pin stripes, like the second pic in this post, #43. (Why aren't the pics coming up?...) Why doesn't anyone do this any more?
What a POS.
Scott, great looking car, I've heard Rudy does great work. I bet she really scoots with that motor setup too.
Nice..love the idea of the locker in the V/8 Q/C. I converted my 34 five window to a 33 because I also like the looks of a 33 over a 34..a personal perference.
I really like this 33! Is that a Caddy Flathead in the background of this picture?
Wow, all the right stuff here. Great hot rod.
I like a chopped '33-34 as much as the next guy, but i love seeing one that isn't cut up. awesome car! love the arduns!!
And I really dig that you post full pictures as I do so people don't have to click on attachments to see them. I wish everyone was up to speed doing this. Great car by the way!!!
what an awesome looking car, that motor is sweet... i like chopped cars but yours with out and that motor looks awesome....
The work on the blisters is done now just need to finish the hood.......Had to cut to fit the heads, also took out some of the bumps in the rear of the blister and just made it fit and feel better all around the Ardun
Whoa, Rad. Looks Awsome!
great car,i like the no chop..good for a change
Just in case you don't know, I have decided not to build the 32 3 window......I have collected parts for this build for about a year or so now and its all gonna go. I have way too much stuff. I have a Ardun Motor, its dynode and all ready on a stand. Buick fin back plates as well as the fin drums.....Many sets of tires and wheels as I could not make up my mind on what I wanted. Headlights......lots of headlights. four 32 perfect grills one is like new new.....Never been mounted. halibrand quick change with custom 2 speed over drive, very nice. One perfect extra hood and sides. Very custom steering box tight ratio. This is the drawing of the car, low and a bit of extra hood......Cant say that anything is for sale because, well you know how it goes. But there is always that chance, pm are always ok.
Great looking ride, very tastefully done
My visit to the shop yesterday, finished the blisters and finishing up the undermount of the hood support. Very close now.......Trying to make the grand nationals.
coming from a guy that chopped the shit outa my 3w, I'm actually glad you didn't chop your 32 3w...
Work looks great!!! Looks like a car that would have been on the east coast/ south in the late 50's! Reminds me of the TRJ article on Blue Ridge Mountain rods. Very very cool..
Is that a 575 Ferrari I spy in the back???
love that car! 33-34's are my fav's. that look is perfect! i have been in the market for one but need to do some more research as i just dont know alot about them. if anyone has any pointers of what to look for, do's and dont's? i'd love to hear from ya,pm me. thanx
The undercount is finished, not just need to finished the locks that hold down the hood......
Hood is all done now and locks too.....
It's looking awesome. I wish I could have that Ardun sticking out of my hood. Jealous for sure...............
