    Hello and hi from germany,

    many years i'm hanging around and looking for parts and information - now i want to give something back - with a little build-up thread.
    Two years ago i bought my 1934 Ford Coupe right here in the hamb. (many many thanks to Levi @36 Vick)

    I totaly loved that car on the pics and so it was clear - thats my baby. Bought the car and the beauty arrived in May 2018.
    Its a 99% car which means, just the seatbench and some glass is missing (and some pieces of steel ;)). Nobody, except henry and myself, welded something on that car - awesome!!
    Here it is:

    thats my plan: keep henrys paint, 59ab Flathead, wire wheels, lowered front and rear. Some bodywork. Nice interior. yap, thats the main concept.

    Thats all for today, write back tomorrow.

    Have a great day
    with the best from germany

    Love it! And a trunk model to boot. Good luck with the build, and keep posting pics as you go.

    Before i have to strip the whole car, i just want to take a look, how it looks with a 4" drop.
    I thinks it's fine!

    Had 16" wheels at the pictures but i think i'll run 6.0-16" in the front/7.5-18" in the back.

    Still a great car. All parts here. Nice grill, hood, fender (inners too), running boards, trunk...

    Some parts are, uuhm, how i can describe - not so good ;) .

    I've ordered new gastank, floor, woodkit and some missing parts already in 2018 and got it in the trunk of the 34 - so i've checked the clearance of the new parts first.

    Oh man, even with the rust you've found that still looks really solid
