That full fendered roadster is the cat's ass. Beautiful lines. Are you gonna finish it, or....?
Yes I am and I agree it does have great lines. I can't wait to start it. picking the right color to show the lines is going to be a tough decision for me. I like different colors, I'm not the cookie cutter type.
What about another grille shell or rumble lid?
I have a rumble lid but it needs a little repair along the bottom lip (typical)
I have a grill but I'm holding onto it for now.
If you mean the front wheels with the raised lip around the holes, they look like Borranis as used on 1950s and 60s Alfa Romeos but the 4 cyl Alfas had 4 lug. Could be from 6 cyl Alfa 2000 or 2600? Fergat also made similar wheels for Alfa Romeo....
They are Kelsey Hayes wheels. That I know.
More pictures-Getting closer!
Mopar, Here is the rumble lid I have. Pretty solid other than the bottom of the skin. The hardware is all there other than the latch.
That looks so BADASS!!!
I need it!!!....I pm you...
How about getting back to me on that 3W body?
Sure would like to know more about that spare Windshield frame you mentioned.
Saltflatwillie I think you have what I need. Sounds like you sold the rumble lid already, I would be interested in what is left. I have a 32 three window Rockne coupe that some one converted to a truck bed in the trunk, they cutout the flange around the decklid and removed the bodyline below the window, and all below the decklid. I've been looking for parts for a while, and not having much luck. Any help would be appreciated. I need the afore mentioned sheet metal, a decklid or rumble lid, and a Garnish molding.
