This is the only one I`ve ever seen in Sweden.
Anybody have any info or other pics of this one?
'32, kanske - men der var en röd '29 til salu på blocket for 1-3 år sedan.
Er den her ikke Norsk registreret?
I took this picture at Timonium back about 1973:
I just recently got my RPU on the road.
Love driving it.
what suspension do you have in front? any detail pictures?
I built the wishbones myself and the front axle is a forged So Cal axle I drilled.
The front spring is a Posies spring mounted in a flat crossmember and the shackles are mounted through the wishbones 3 1/2” back from the axle mounts.
I used Superbell suicide steering arms that I beefed up so that my steering tie rod can run behind the rad.
Lot’s of pictures and details in my build thread,
I was really happy to find that it drives really nice, rides good and no bump steer or wobbles at any speed.
I managed to find a few recent pictures I took of it.
T-812 kan va en äldre reg.skylt vi hade i Sverige. T = Örebro län.

Hiding in the lair while I mow the yard waiting for me to install the helical gears.
Such a beautiful sunny day here the gear change can wait, I’m out driving
Okey - jag är dansk, så jag vet det mindre!
Here's one I've been working on a few years. Home built frame extended 7" for spring behind the rear axle, '42 Mercury powerplant backed by a T-5. Runs and drives but still a work in progress. Aren't they all!

Great looking hot rod, both style and colors. But, the placement of that gas tank makes me nervous in the service.
bowtie, why? quite a few trucks have their gas tanks in the bed. what difference does it make if a car has it in the trunk?
Mine, with tank in back. JW
