Customs shoebox coupe build.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by glendale, Feb 27, 2015.

  1. So not long after the flathead run i broke an oil line and spun a bearing in my new motor. I did get my wheels powder coated. Today i picked up another 8ba to swap in the car and get me back on the road. I got it for a god deal and it looks super nice inside and has adjustable lifters.

  2. Man, call me jealous. My coupe won't leave the shop for another six months or so.

    Oh man, that sucks about your flathead ! Good to hear that you found another, but damn ... That sucks :(
     
  4. Yeah man it bummed me out pretty bad. It actually happened months ago and I have not touched it since. so the new motor will t least make me get off my ass.

    Something like that will certainly take the wind out of your sails. I can totally understand that feeling.
     
  6. so I sold the shoebox day before yesterday. It is going to a great home and I bought a car I did not think I would ever own. 1941 mercury convertible!

    I'm confused... did you sell it, or buy it?
     
  13. plans are a color change asap and drive it and enjoy it for a while.

    I sold the car a year ago. about a month ago I traded and got it back.
