    My uncle passed away a couple of months ago. We found this in his barn. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  2. Looks like he was building a hot rod. Looks solid. I hope you or someone in the family can finish it.

    That sucks... Would have been nice to keep the vintage cars in the family.

    I thought he sold it. It was behind a pile of junk. I'm going to get it and finish it for him! He also has a 48 Pontiac convertible, 48 Pontiac 4 door sedan and a 1956 Ford that I'm going to have to find homes for.

    I have it set up in my will. One child gets the entire contents of my shop. The one I trust not to sell my old car parts for scrap value. Sad but have to protect what's left off the parts and my hot rod.

    I'm thinking a '36 Ford convertible, but I'm not an authority.

    It's a 1935 Ford cabriolet Model 48-760.
    17000 were produced.
    Make your late uncle proud by finishing it.

    Sorry for the loss of cool family.
    I know your uncle is digging this and will guide your hands. That's a bitchen car.
    My brother lost the whole kit and caboodle because he threw the property tax bill away thinking they were junk mail.
    That was the only bill. Mom paid off the house when Dad passed away.
