Time has been kind to my 49. The rear fenders were repainted many decades ago, but the rest is original. Up close you can see more of the imperfections, but not a bad looker from 15'.
76 Years of patina - As found. I expect that it will clean up and have some shine. I like the look of the pock-marked headlight buckets. That's not me in the photos - that is the prior owner.
Here's my old 50. I've posted this pic before but a long time ago. This car has been laid up for a few years but I'm gonna bring it back this year. I hope anyway. It's not on original paint but what's on there is old and weathered! LOL! Sorry if some of you have seen this pic before. I call this car "uncle chet" because the first time I drove it to work a gal I worked with say's "my Uncle Chet had a car just like that!". And it's been uncle chet ever since and me too. It was all stock when I got it. I lowered it, new wheels and tires, headers and duals, and louvers. Plus all the usual fix it up stuff. It's a fun car.
new springs,shackles,king pins,brakes,hope to bang some miles on the six this year.
it's just like a hot rod...except, it's not.
original '36 paint
eventually a 38 chev pu
I really like that Tudor. Too bad they don't have the hood and grille to match. Where's that car from?
This is the same paint and primer that was on my brothers A when he found it 30 plus years ago.
My '31 Coupe (Un-touched paint).
Has that been converted to right hand drive? Not the norm for Arizona.
Worldwide web.....sorry, that's all I got.
Nice thread never saw it before! I think my F-1 can fit in. Original paint, never been repainted, no putty (at all) probably pin stripped in the 60's or early 70's I'm not sure! Not finished yet but closer!

It's not the original paint, but it was put on before the car was parked in '63.
