32 rails and a belly pan should get me wedged in there, aye?
At first, I didn't get it. By post #8, I got it........and I like it! Very cool! Keep the pics comin'!
Now that looks big fun.
Love the flowing lines everywhere.
What sort of "nose" is it going to have ?
What a dream....good luck with this project.
That's 6" extra
And still Looks cool!
Amd deceiving. That turtle deck looks extra long, and the eye sees a coupe roof but it's a short pick up roof.
Still would like to see a full size person seated in there.
It's gonna be like laying down in A pick up cab.
rear quarters hung, door jamb lengthened 5", deck lid hole roughed out
That is going to be one bitchin car when it's done.
this is so rad. i cannot wait to see more.
Don’t tell my wife this bit of information !
back to eli's shop for cat walk, rear window, and aluminum deck lid. he was going for it, i was tryna stay out of the way.
traditional speed and custom will be doing a ton on this thing. a good buddy and tattoo customer of mine. we trade a lot of work.
Great stuff @bgaro...gonna be piercing the air soon...I like your good ole days vision. Whats your drivetrain considerations for this wild ride rising before our very eyes?
nothin' fancy. 283, muncie 4spd, early bronco 9"
At first I was thinking this was heading in the rodent direction, but not anymore. Keep at it. Something from nothing.

if you would have told me you were grafting an F1 roof on a t roadster I would have laughed
more pics please
VERY,VERY COOL! Going to be a lot of work but what vision. Keep track of how much wire you use.
one door seems more than enough for a T.
Unless your kissin’ ones own ass.
I like this project. Very creative. I’m hooked. Keep em cumming.
Oh yeah...that's got great lines. Looks a lot better than my old chopped and narrowed 36 ford pickup
my man steve shepard was kind enough to make me a panel and tack it in.
That might be worse...
Go man go! That is definitely different and it looks PISSAH!

From a pile of nuthins ... to a hotrod coupe...
part of the fun is that you don't have a perfect original copy staring you in the face... you don't have to measure up to one... you can do what you want and not have to care what THEY think...
I have a rough full hight '35-'36 car cowl with a bad windshield frame... free if you come get them... top half of the '35 w/s... bottom half model A ...
let me know if you need pix...
Glad you posted up pics Bud. Hopefully at some point I get to get my hands dirty on this one. Going to be rad!

Unless you are a very short person, you can skip the slides. No reason to ever slide the seat forward!
Definitely has the Bonneville look.
I love it. Subscribed.
Creativity These are the threads I enjoy reading.
I like it!
This last pic gives a pretty decent idea of the overall lines. I must admit on the first few posts I wasn’t sold but this last pic has me being a bit more of a believer. Kudos to you for following your own path. I’ll watch with interest!
