    Neat thread. Lots of great before and afters. Mine is still in progress. Little changes don't look like much at this point.

  6. I really enjoyed this rebuild....got it cheap...spent a boat load on it...and then it would not go over 52mph...so we sold it...I called it "Howard Knapp"...it even smelled like an old heap...

    The start of my Model A coupe: upload_2020-12-16_1-2-31.png

    Built a frame for it: upload_2020-12-16_1-5-50.png
    Ended up looking like this: upload_2020-12-16_1-8-21.png

    Car has since been sold to western Canada, if any one has seen it, would be interested to hear about it or see pictures of how it has evolved.

    I know it just barely squeeks into HAMB. Been and still is a good ride. Original with a tired 350/350, broken Cragar copy wheels and sun bleached interior.

    58,000 miles later a new 406/700R4, new interior, new wheels and good for another 50,000 miles. A good solid ride.

    Here another 1 did. 1934 Plymouth coupe. Looked cool when I got it. And relized it was really cobbled together. Did a complete rebuild, chopped, channeled, big block with a Clutch-flite. 57 - 64 Olds rear. 20181123_103455.jpeg image(4).jpeg
