Projects My next "last" project.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by timwhit, Sep 29, 2020.

  1. A friend of mine had this car in his basement for a number of years. He doesn't normally sell any cars but he has recently. He contacted me to see if I'd be interested in the Phaeton. Long story short, I went and got it Saturday.
    It was an export to South Africa but quite a few years ago made it's way back to the US. It is a right hand drive car. Needs lots of love and some new wood. There's a lot to like about the car but will take a long time to bbuild. My sedan is for sale and is in the classifieds. paheton.jpg 20200926_113656.jpg 20200929_153715.jpg 20200929_153732.jpg 20200929_153721.jpg 20200929_153753.jpg 20200926_200932.jpg
     
  2. Nice! Too bad you couldn't keep both. For both types of weather.
    Going to put it over to LHD?

    Are you going for the same style minus the top? Cool New Project!

    Nice score although can’t believe you’re parting with the sedan after wanting one again for so long.

  15. Tom: I'm giving great consideration to comverting it to a roadster!!
     
  16. BTW: I'm selling the wheels and tires that are on the car now if anyone is interested. Four each 17" ?? $200
     
  17. I have actually made some progress. I had to unpack the car, it had lots of parts laying inside it. One thing that came with it was a new wood kit for the right front door. I got it installed and the door fits and works real well. I have sorted out all the other wood items and have enough to start on the rear doors. Off to a good start. 20201005_152638.jpg 20201005_152618_Burst01.jpg 20201001_132053.jpg
     
  18. Well, now I have all four doors swingin' and shuttin'!! So, I have headed up front. Got the sheet metal out of the way and started messing with the flatty. First, the fenders have had round rod welded all the way around the lip!! Lots of work but they are sturdy! The flatty is, as best I can tell, is a Merc or Candian. It is 3 3/16's bore (can't tell about the stroke untill I get some more cleanin done), factory relieved and has the round center water jacket. It has a 99 cast in the front of block juset above the water pump. Doesn't matter, I'll likely not use it. Here's some pics. 20201015_135648.jpg 20201116_152529.jpg 20201116_152555_Burst01.jpg 20201116_170534.jpg 20201115_170117.jpg
