    I have known about this car for about 5 years now .It was for sale on kijiji for along time now with everyone wanting it but no one bought it .Well any way its now mine after trading a 54 chevy 4 door for it that i bought for 2000 at a local swap meet .Now that i own it i am finding a ton of old pics and info on it.I believe the car was built in windsor ontairo by Richard Naklie in 1955 .The car is a 30 model a roster on a 32 frame.It has a old 9 inch rear end with a detriot locker .Also the motor is a 312 y block done right up for racing with a 3 speed tranny .Evey part of the front end was chromed at some point and is all in pretty good shape.there is much more to the car i will post later on.I will be painting the car red and putting it back to the way it was.The car is running strong and sounds awesome.This is it for now [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    This car fucking rules!

    Not a hugely historically significant car but FULL of history!

    This is how cars were built back in the day.
    I'm lucky I got to go look at it with CUTITUP53chevy (Ricky) before he got it.
    He's already transformed it back to a killer HotRod with the few changes he's made so far.

  9. Very cool. You need a tri-power for that y-block? I may or may not have an extra if you're interested?

    Bitchin, I too am bringing an old 1950's Canadian A on deuce frame back from the brink! That's a cool car and a great score.
     
  11. Glad to see you finally started a thread Ricky! I still need to get over there and hear this thing scream.

    It was definitely a good score.

    This has to be the most lop-sided trade on hamb, ever..

    Nice old build, and I can't believe the trips came with it, too.

    Wow! Great trade!!! I'm not sure I like the rear fenders though,but red & with old style cycle fenders front & rear would be my goal.

    Great car

    nice ride, drop that windshield just a skoche, and narrow the grille, chopping a deuce grille without a commensurate narrowing just makes them look ungainly and non-proportional.

    Awesome! Glad you're going to redo it.

    Although... funny how everyone was totally bagging on this car for being such a "piece of crap" in the last thread it had............:rolleyes:

    I missed that. I love the old builds. They all seem to have some quirks, etc, and I think that is why they'd be so hard to clone, if we tried.

    Me too Frank, quirks and all... I tried to buy this car a couple owners ago, only missed it because I dragged my feet a little too long.:( Probably for the best because there's no way I would fit in it in its current configuration. I would have had to unchannel it.
     
  27. Even cooler!
     
  28. Nice find, glad your doing it the way it was!
