  5. Hey AVater, would you believe me if I told it's actually a two tone paint job? You'll have to look close at the fenders and body

  6. I was there too... Interesting that three (well, four if you include the '55 Ford next to the Stude) are owned by people I know. The Stude is a Flite Hawk, 6/3 speed w/OD car that's been beautifully restored, and he drives it pretty regularly. He's missed some time this season because of health issues (and it was great to see him out).

    The F1 was a in-progress project when the builder died. His wife took over construction (with some help) and finished the truck (yes, she got dirty hands). Flathead V8 powered, and she's looking for a OD trans for this one. One of the best fitting and operating 'hard' tilt-up tonneau covers I've ever seen and it's all home-built. She picked the colors...

    The '56 F100 was bought new and is still owned by the original owner! He started customizing it in '58 and it features '56 Ford car bumpers, scratch-built gravel pans, '60 Merc headlight rings, '61 Ford grill, and Imperial turn signals. The back housings for the headlights and turns were owner-built then chromed. 272 Y-block with a '57 Merc Y-block carb and intake. He's kept repairs/appearance items up over the years, but it still has almost all original paint and running gear.

    There were quire a few early hemi cars there, the best IMO was an absolutely stunning red '57 300C convertible.

    Thanks for the pics and some history of the vehicles. They all have stories and that really adds to them. I wonder how many notice the ifs on the Mopar coupe? Hey, is that a MII? Heck No!!

    I wonder if it's the one year only 1934 frame.... Hmmmm

    I know that if you modify it to fix the castor issue, they work well...

    I like how the headlights were mounted. Very clean looking car.

    I believe that Mopars had that as an option(?) on the upscale models like Chevrolet had with their standard and deluxe models. I know there are Mopar guys on here maybe they'll chime in.

    Hi team
    I will bet dollars to donuts that is a 1934 mopar chassis with the 1934 independent front suspension
    Excellent suspension if you get the trunion (spelling) joints sorted
    Cheers
    Peter

    Not an option... They all had this for one year.... 1934. The front end didn't have enough caster, it caused handling issues. Chrysler Corporation went back to a straight axle in 1935. If I am not mistaken (memory serves me right) the Chrysler Corporation figured it out and tried independent front suspension again in 1939. The passenger cars never got a straight axle up front again after that. I learned all of this while restoring a 1935 Plymouth. My neighbor, Bob Meyer Racing, had a 1934 Dodge. He cut his spindles at the top, bent them to get more caster, and then welded them back up.

    While driving around finding parts for the 1935, I discovered this theory to seem factual. If anyone out there knows more facts regarding this subject, please chime in.

    And notice the factory juice brakes
    Independent front suspension
    While the popular Ford still had buggy springs and those wonderful rods to operate the brakes
    That's why I could use my 33 Plymouth as a daily driver
    Sorry in advance for stepping on toes
