    It's a old school, custom built, Hot Rod, done in the late 60's - early 70's an hidden in a barn, then sold at an estate sale. A Model T with a built 283/Powerglide, shag carpet and and 8 track player.

    Most of all build what you want, do what you want, it's your car. My uncle has always said, "If you like it, I love it." Meaning doesn't matter if he likes it or not, because it isn't his car.

    Man, that thing looks great. I love it and would drive just as is. Maybe even leave the old 283 and glide in it, lol.

    Looks like fun! A real good safety check, build inspection and test drive and then enjoy. Safety for you and everyone around you is paramount at this time. Many happy miles to you!

    Its hard to tell from the pictures, almost looks like a truck axle that has been set up with the transverse spring. A picture of just the front end will tell all.

    Trade that emblem in the middle of the radiator for some front brakes and you'll be all set!

    It's a good looking car. I've seen it in Cartersville's cruise night a few months back. Glad to see a HAMBer got it.

    Congrats and Enjoy that bucket!
     
  27. Looks like a good start, I'd swap the front axle and put a buggy spring in the rear. swap out the wheels and tires and drive it.

    Did it come from the Dahlonega area? I know a guy near a friends house has a really similar one.

    No this one came from down in Lithia Springs, Ga. I know who your talking about, Todd is a real good guy, it does look a lot like his though.
