This week my friend John managed to buy an old hot rod that had been built in the 60's. The car is made up of the front half of a 1918 Chev touring body set on a Model T frame. This car was built locally, and has been in storage virtually ever since it was built. The builder passed away in 1971, and the old rod has been stored with a couple of owners since. The chrome work that was done in the 60's still gleams! John has had his eye on this rod for many years, and was in the right place at the right time when it became available. A deal was struck and the Chev now finds a place in John's home. The old rod has a 46 Ford flathead with three Stromberg 97's, and a Harmon Collins magneto (how rare is that!). The mill is backed by a 39 Ford trans and a 48 Ford rearend mounted with a Model T rear spring. 48 Ford brakes all around, and there are 59 Buick finned drums on all four corners. A Corvair box handles the steering. John was lucky enough to get several boxes of spare parts with the purchase. Here are a few pics. Who says they aren't out there anymore!
