    What a clean machine that car is. What's under the hood, a 216?
     
  3. Wow, just wow. They ARE still out there, guys.

    Amazing! Great find especially since that is what you wanted. Have to keep some original and with the story, this would be a good one. Do you know if the car and wheels were painted that way originally? Add some whitewalls and be done.
     
  9. Yes it is the original paint scheme, the car was repainted in the mid 80's by Quality Motors in Independence Ks.

    NO please ,no whitewalls. The car doesn't have them and does not need them.
     
  13. :D:D:D:D
    Haven't decided yet. What ever I decide will be period correct. More then likely black walls.
     
  14. "UPDATE"

    After Brakes and some tweeking the 39 is on the road and running great.

    NOS Texaco oil for the 39 before it's first day out on the road.

  21. A little choke, a couple pumps and she went right off. Thanks for all your help Rod. Cool shop, great work.

    Well to be honest the 39 is for when I'm in that "Pa Kettle" mood.:eek: I feel very lucky to have found such a piece of history. Oh hey, by the way Jeff. I'm stealing your pic you posted!!!!

  22. One of my Air Corp tag riders was screaming from the shelf to be the first addition to the 39.

    Thanks for posting the interior pics. I have a '39 sedan as well and need the rear seat, the one that came with it isn't the right one at all.
     
  25. If ya need anymore, let me know.;)
     
  26. Stealing that horrible pic? I'll do you a better one, as the first was a bit dark.
    Tag looks great.
