Did some picture reducing to get more pics on here
Started with the front of a touring body,built some doors and just keep working my way to the back section[/IMG] ended up with a fun car![/IMG]
started with only this
it became this when i found a 4 door studebaker -31 behind a garage thats been sittin for 40 years, of course its not even close ready but anyway! i´m sad i sold the crossram weber setup, that was COOOL!!
My Avatar started with a rusty 28/29' Ford cowl and the back of a unknown touring car that had been once used as a couch. Sorry for no pictures as I'm computer illiterate but a friend posted a thread on it somewhere on here. Been suffering with back issues so it hasn't been completed yet.
Keep them coming, talking about hot rod building at its finest! Im digging this...
The 29 cowl tank was $50 at the Louisville Nationals, couldn't pass it up.
A gift of Essex rails from Johnny Sparkle and engine and suspension gifts from friends.
Body panels and most other parts homemade.
34 International Harvester. Got it bead-blasted and epoxied at Mooch's about 4 yrs ago, but it still hangs on the wall there.
The result is a track roadster with a turbo flathead that still meeds upholstry, this winters project.
I started with a 1930 cowl from a fire engine, added a set of cut down sedan doors and a sedan back panel I found in a skip. Narrowed the whole lot about 6” I haven’t touched it for 9 years (yikes) need to get some other stuff done then back on it.
The other one I built was a English 32 Sedan Cowl and doors, lower back from a 34 pick up and a unknown roof that just kind of worked.
A friend of mine used a '32 pickup cowl and build a woody of sorts,,he in turn sold it to a guy in Florida that converted it into a pop corn wagon,,,sorry I don't have any photos. HRP
Thanks for the compliments, very much appreciated to hear, I have learned a great deal form this site and it's a big part of the finished product.
Well not finished, never finished.....
That nose is sweet! I'm digging it...
Chris hand built one neat little roadster His current build is one Bitchin 32 black steel 32 roadster which should be done sometime this year.

Just because we had a cowl....
Not a cowl but I started with this for my roadster.
Posted from the TJJ App for iPhone & iPad
Some interesting ideas in here.. I just so happen to have a '28-'29 cowl in storage.
Too bad I have a roadster to finish first.
Lierally a 22 Moon cowl and 2 49 Dodge hood sides, a Model A frame an A rearend, and an A frountend. Now the fun begins
Heres my old Willys, I'm sure you guys are all sick of seeing these pics by now. I never did finish this car. regrets...
Here is my current Av8 project, currently up for sale in the classifieds. However, this thread may cause me to rethink selling it.
speaking of just a cowl, hows about this golden oldie?
Or a lady bug?
Perhaps a doodlebug?
Not as rough as some of the cowls, parts and pieces that you have started with, but here is my last from very little project.
Before and after shots
This was my old project 27 dodge cowl the rest of the body is all hand fabbed.
Are those panel original or repops?
