Love this thread but hate it at the same time.
French Vedette ?
Yep! Here's another one:
Couple weeks ago.
Well, maybe the cowl vent is still salvageable.
I really like that Tudor, it would be cool to see the guys from Road Kill turn that into something. Assuming the frame is rusted out, they could source another and do a quick tour of the nearest junkyard and pick out a 9 inch and small block and get to work building everything up until they were ready to drop the rusted hulk on top as is. I would pay to see that.
Looks like a MK I Consul/ Zephyr with a strange grille. JW
First thing I thought of when I saw those pictures!
Looks originale to me.
. Those studes have been sitting there for at least 35 yrs. They finally set them up on the trailer. I tried years ago to buy them . They are pretty much rusted away now. I was driving thru Buckner the other day and thought what a waste..
I wonder what stories this ride could tell?
^^^^^^That would make a really cool hotrod project!
Here is a strange story about a Consul here in Brisbane. I was at a friends place and sitting by the pool in their yard. Being always vigilant I spotted the shape of a car under the house next door behind the
palings of their house. Investigation revealed an early 50's Consul so my enthusiam waned. Fast forward a couple of years. No car anymore so I enquired. They owners were going to do some renovations and the old guy was embarrassed about having the old car under the house. Apparently he labouriously went about chopping the old car up and digging holes around under the house and he buried the whole car including the engine(not that it was that big).
Them 1958's are rare - most salvage yards crushed them back in the day in favor of the early tri-5's and the later 1961-64's....
I need to go for a walk and see what I can find..
