Just wondering - what's happened over the last 3 years???
That is the best (A Pillar) post position that I have ever seen on any chop. And heaven knows how much I dig Model 40's. Most Excellent Job Well Done!!!!!!!!
Any updates on this car?
Way to go kev! Thank you for sharing...
Love this thread!
I talked to Greg a few weeks ago and he told me the coupe is on hold while he does a car for his dad (57 Ranchero?). He is a busy guy, he has also built a nice home shop since the chop.
Kev, did you ever do a thread on the other 5 window with the short doors? Was it ever finished?
I just had to reread this thread for the umpteenth time, haha! Such an inspiring tech article! Way to go guys!
Any progress on the coupe yet! Such a reet car!
I doubt we will see anything Shiny. I did use a lot of pointers when my buddy and I chopped mine if it will make you feel any better.
... just wanted to thank the vengeful gods of the HAMB ... for allowing the followers to witness, the beauty of the creators' original photos within this ancient & hot rod HAMB holy thread.
thanks to this Kiwi Kev posting this thread , I created this, My 33.....
resisting to chop the top on my 36 3w ( lol my local shop wants to do it ) ... wonder how bad that exhaust drones on the red and white heap above ? LOL... picture credited to Paul ( mod here) taken at Goodguys Puyallup this last summer... neat car , wicked chop.. didn't get a pic of my own.. but I liked it a lot.
Some folks have asked for an update on the 34. It has been very slow going as I have completed a few other cars and added three kids to the family. On the 34 I made the door gaps perfect by adding or deleting metal. I built frames for the front and rear firewall and hung pedals. I collected a bunch of missing parts including a mint grille and original halibrand four-window mags for the rear. .
I recently put the motor in and fired it up. Its a SBC with a Mooneyham 6-71 on an old Cragar manifold and Camel-back heads. The car will still have the T-56 6 speed gearbox and a 9inch rear. I had plans to build this to run at El Mirage but believe I will just build a street car out of it and drag race some of the local nostalgia events. The tech requirements for SCTA would add a couple years to the build at my pace, and I'm not sure the delay would be worth the pay-off for me.
Car looks amazing, Greg. I followed that whole chop when Kev was doing it. Always dreamed of owning a 33-34. Looks like it's finally gonna happen next week.
That little car is bitchn'. Keep it up.
