this is a lovely build thread
Josh came over tonight and helped me set the body on the frame. I have some modifying to do but it will work out I think.
grill is just something I have Kickin around not sure what I'm doin in front yet.
now the real work begins turning this pile into a car.
What's that rad shell you got on there? Looks good!
It's a Oliver tractor. I might hack it up and see how it looks not sure yet.
Tractor shells can be tough to get to look right but that one certainly has potential. You could run some masking tape lines back to the cowl and get a good idea how it flows with the car and jives or does not jive with your vision. I wouldn't try to section it with all the lines it's got going on; I'd be inclined to hog out some material from the bottom and get it over the spring and axle a couple inches or so.
ray, i like the "action shot" you fit in there pretty well. you gonna run the wide fives? i love those. im using them on my project
I had the wide fives left over from my 28 so that's what I'm running. This car is all built from cast offs from other projects. Might even use that hood I got from you.shush don't tell.
looking good, got to a love a 27 T
Steal a shelf out of your refrigerator and make a verticle bar insert for that grill shell- it looks pretty tasty just the way you've got it sitting there. Excellent work- you're cookin' now!---- Watch out N.J.!!!! , serious "Torrnados" in the forecast!!
Lookin good man!
Had to rework the rear bones to gain more frame clearance for the suspension without raising the car.Josh Fredette and I made up some brackets and cut up an A drag link . I'll have to figure out some new shock mounts but other wise am pretty happy with the outcome .
Looking good ray.
You look tiny in that there car!
Put the Motor in the back then you will have plenty of room or maybe i should say a fat guy like me could have plenty of room... HAHA Looks great keep up the good work
replaced rear panel and started making a new rear sub frame.
Finish it up and made a push bar out of a bit of '39 driveshaft.
looking sharp Ray!
Torr would use some old piston rods for shock mounts.
You gonna put that on the road after the "Race"? That's one snarkey lookin' unit, my friend! Pure Metal Mastery!
Thanks guys. Tryin to make it street legal Mike.
