    So this is it, 33 34 ford roadster old hot rod looks like it was a 5w with the roof cut off they welded the doors shut and cut down the bottom of the car 7inches also appears to be channeled around 10 inches!!
    looks like it was set up for a chevy had a cool homemade hurst style mount and possibly a power glide. It has old interior in rough shape but it will work for now, wrap around bucket seats maybe a neat center console at one time diamond tuff interior on top of wide pleats wrapped over the doors and around the back very cool!
    has a bunch of old pin stripe work around the firewall
    and my favorite part, has a great old top and bows with side curtains

    Stock dash with a neat 40 ford mirror molded into the top also drilled with a bunch of gauges and a radio in the glove box. Oh and of coarse you cant forget the wood grain paneling.
    Pressed aluminum panel, pop riveted for the firewall
    49 Lincoln taillights
    57 Pontiac rear
    40 front end

    Plans ...

    I would love to try and make it to the round up I think its 7 weeks away haha

    I have an old runner flathead 8ba with neat old speed equip
    39 trans with a torque tube and 48 rear
    16s with wide whites
    Cool dropped axle and lots of old chrome
    and a bunch of cool gauges

    so here it is

    Sitting that low Who needs opening doors? The interior resembles an early vette. Must have been built 60's or earlier.

    it was some old trans cooler they had for the auto

    progress is going good i flattened the front cross member i went ahead and changed it to a model A member as the old was just about cracked in half

    Bob Bleed and i have been mocking it up we set a dropped axle in the front i also mocked it up with a friends 16 inch wheels and tires

    Flathead has temporary mounts i tached on the frame to move it around so we can find it a good home

    being its channeled so much 10 inches and trimmed the bottom another 7 we are trying to find the best way to get me the most room with out the car looking even weirder haha

    I will be running swinging pedals hydraulic brake and clutch through old chrome masters

    working on mounting my steering and pedals hope to have them mounted by the end of today
