How about a few more pics inside and out???
Fix the originals ! How bad can they be? Let's see some more pix' I like it!
Incredible car, keep us in the build!!
Don't you dare toss those fenders!!!!
There were very few fenderless 33-4's built in the 60's besides race cars. By the 70's they were resto-rods and then Jake built his yellow coupe and Ewing's channeled hottie made hiboy '33's popular. I vote leave the fenders too.
Guys, Looks like I will do my best to keep the frame, but I will loose the fenders, but keep them in storage.
Thanks for the kind words and all the tips. I will be starting soon. Back in 1962 the owner at the time who I purchased the car from when down to chevy and bought a newly released corvette 327 and 4 speed, used a 55 chevy rear end and a ring and pinion/pumpkin from a chevy milk truck. Was a monster in 1962! I'm trying to get some more pics but having a hard time downloading. By the way I have that motor and trans too!!
you do know I'm going to ask for all motor numbers to verify all this
it's my job...it's what I do
I don't like this guy. LOL
What an incredible find! We need more photos and history...
Thanks for sharing.
Holy Shit! That's a hell of a way to come on board ( you lucky son-of-a-gun!!!)

If you follow "3W Larry"s lead, you'll be fine. ( He'll be watching too, so no slacking!)----------GREAT FIND!
You have discovered gold which will certainly increase in value in the coming months. Here are a couple examples to think about if you go the hiboy route.
Here are a few more for your viewing. Always keep the stock chassis if possible. Leave all the holes and no need to box the frame for a driver.
Heavy chops are hard to see out of but have the look.
A finished 33 is just beautiful in my mind.
My neighbors started life as a basket case from the Kennedy Boys.
I really like this chop and look.
Same car as #2 above prior to paint. Rudy knows model 40's.
You are reading my mind !!
I hope you are able to save and reuse that interior!!!!
Sorry, I read that bit and was so excited I didn't read highboy, which was the next word
Loose the fenders
Build a highboy
Box the frame
Hey wait a min ????
Cut the firewall
Move the engine back
Build a roll cage
Build a blown hemi running on nitro
Sounds cool to me even if it's been done before
You suck!! Just kidding, nice find for sure - don't screw it up!
Thats the wrong car for you... That needs to be saved. Please dont dissassemble that car. Find a car that already has a TCI etc frame and no fenders. Its your car but we hate seeing old Hot Rods destroyed
You have found a golden egg. You have a period correct survivor. I would not change a thing! Clean it up and drive it or pass it to someone who will keep it as is!
make it run like atop and leave it alone it will only look like that once.
Yeah please dont take that car apart! Full fendered forever
