    47 dodge businessman coupe. It was a one owner doctors car, last registered in 61, 7100 original miles. Sense I've had it it had a whole new modern drive train put in as it's going to be a daily driven car. The flathead 6 isn't practical in 2016s traffic. It will be turned into a late 40s early 50s custom.

    Keeping it all original here on dad's 52 Merc. It took over 40 years sitting in the woods to acquire that finish. Plus hours of work with steel wool, diesel fuel, rubbing compound and finally turtle wax. Right down to bare metal in a few spots on the roof. Even deeper on the rocker panels.

    Some HAMBERS will recognise the silver / blue Olds convertible. Well that other one is now down under and residing a few hours from me. You wouldn't recognise it now.
