So cool! Congrats on such a find!
This is with out a doubt the best story I have ever seen here. You deserve that car and she is counting on you to keep it as is. Good to see young men with some real back bone. Following this................................
What a story! Love what you're doing with the car. Anxiously awaiting updates!
It just get better and better! Did you read my last post?
I really love this car.
Outstanding score.Keep the updates and pics coming.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
So! So awesome... Best thing I've seen on the HAMB in a long time!
Once again, these kind of stories give me hope that these hidden gems are out there you just have to do the work to find them!
Did he take the stock Model A front crossmember, modify it and weld it to the top of the frame? or is it a custom fabricated front crossmember? I've never seen it done that way before
Wow! What a great find! I can't wait to see this one unfold! Kudos to you for taking this in the right direction and not rewriting this cars history.
You have the right attitude that you are the car's caretaker. And it's great that you are able to document the car's history too and share it with us. Most of us love to see how they really actually built them back then. You have the real deal there, no doubt about it. Do us all proud and care for Snoopy well.
Man that thing is the freakin AWESOME!
Awesome Car and Story!!! Definitely watching this thread
Hope you can get it going, looks well built, would drive it as is if possible. They are only in the unrestored state once, if you restore it will just look like a new old style build. Great find.
I gotta run for dinner, but I had to give you guys a little teaser... Engine seemed siezed, but I pulled the plugs, no rust present, oiled the cylinders, few days later I put it in gear & when me & my buddy pushed it forward the tires skidded, we pushed it back & it turned over !
I oiled the cylinders up again & then this past saturday I disconnected the car wiring from coil & starter, & fuel line (the old gas in the tank is nasty !!) & cranked it over via jumper cables.
More later & I will try to reply to some inquires as well ! Thanks
So even in Northern Ontario they are hidden. Great find.
Where in Northern ON are you located?
"Patiently waiting for pouring smoke"
as possibly thought by 3wLarry.
"Listen Mr... It ain't broke if I can't fix it"
Okay- I'm hooked.
Please let me follow along as you bring the car back to it's glory!
May good luck continue for you! - L7
You did it perfect! What a story!
This is what "traditional" is all about.
You were the right guy.
The story talked to you.
The car talked to you.
If you follow your gut you will be rewarded
far more than you even think.
Well since you asked so nicely for pouring smoke ... ;-) This past saturday after rolling it over with the plugs out, I dripped some gas into the fuel bowl via the vent, hooked up a jumper wire to the coil, cleaned the old plugs, filed the points and well... I promise no edits, the 1st video is the first try & the 2nd video is the second try (I kept the coil energized longer on the 2nd video...) - I'm giggling like an idiot but I don't care, I was blown away
Most Excellent.....Very happy for you and can't wait to see more posts......thanks for letting us ride along with your adventure !!!!!
Nice to see an original hot rod from back in the day from Canada. Makes it that much more special.
This rules, just make sure to take the past owners for rides when it time!
How fuckin cool is that!!
You know when there's a Breaking News Update on TJJ, it's gonna be good. This is beyond cool.
This whole story is just so cool cant wait to see more!!
Great story, I also have been an 'A' coupe fan since high school.
Your persistence paid off BIG ! Congratulations
Your laugh tells the whole story.
