Here's my 33 five Window termite castle hope to get back to it soon.
A couple more shots she needs little floor work
@40ragtopdown Tell about that 33.
Friends Holden bodied 34 Chevy Master yard art on the other side of the country. He's had a few phaetons over the years, some of which are over in the US now.
This is a restored Ozzie Holden bodied coupe currently for sale on the other side of town, note the differences to Fisher body.
1935 Chevy roadster utility that was for sale, not to be confused with another body style as in the black roadster pickup below the utility.
This is a 34 Holden bodied roadster utility that I know of currently in the US
Another rare local Holden bodied 37 Chevy roadster for sale, only 184 were produced. Note that Holden side pressing does not extend into cowl and door as on Fisher bodies and that engine side curtains are different with horizontal and not vertical pressings. Holden may have just stopped using wood for frame out.
What about this other body style, a 35 Holden bodied Chevy coupe ute over there now
What do you mean stopped using wood for frame out? 36 was the last year for wood in Chevy. Great pics. It is unusual to see the 37 without the body line extending along the bottom of the door.

I recall that the turret top came out in 37 but wasn't sure about down here, we did things very different to North America. North American Fords used steel frames however Ozzie ones to some extent still used wood, I can't recall specifics but the Ford guys would know.
Here's a rare Holden bodied 32 Chevy Moonlight Speedster (Aluminum)
I last saw this phaeton for sale in San Francisco
Currently for sale at $20K in Florida. Good value IMHO given it's rarity, only 213 were produced.
This car has been In our family since 1962 my older brothers bought it entending to build a hot rod out of it but that never happened. I remember this coupe being so complete it still had the shade in the back window..I use to sit in it and make motor noises when I was nine or ten years old .I always wanted to buy it from them but they would never sell it.for some reason it got pushed outside were it sat for 25 years and once the Ohio weather got to it well you know chevys.well one of the brothers decided to take it to his place were it sat in his garage still won't sell it to me. Flash forward ten years I get a call from my brother you still want that old chevy well hell yeah he says come and get . Turns out he bought his wife a new firebird and it wasn't going to sit outside so after all these years it's mine I plan on replacing the wood with steel and yes some times I still sit in it and make motor noises.
Not sure if I ever posted some updated photos on this thread, so here are some.....Plus a gratuitous photo of Joi Lansing. For some reason her photo is in the same folder as the 34 pics.
^^^ Well, afterall, they're both beauties, with nice bumpers and big headlites.
ly nice bunch of chevys on display. ALL 1935 CHEVROLET STANDARD SERIES. coupe, phaeton, and still
Here is another one, 1934 with all Chevy running gear.
Hey guys, i just found this thread. I have a 1929 and a 1931 Coach. I have the body, doors, cowl, fenders for the 1929. I was looking on Craigslist for a frame and ended up buying a 1931 Coach body, cowl, frame with a complete engine/trans, front and rear end...but no doors. The guy I bought it from said he could not find doors so he could not build it. I will be on the lookout but plan on using the 29 doors which will need modifications for the window opening and body revel to match the 31 body if I can't find a set of 31 doors.
Plans for the build:
1954 Truck front axle, dropped with drum brakes
283 with 3 speed OD/column shift
1957 truck column and steering box
Not sure on the rear end yet...need to do more research...but would like to stick with 6 lug
1940's 16" steel wheels
No fenders, channeled 2"...maybe a chop...not 100% set one way or the other
1931 grill with hood.
Shiny paint, plain and simple upholstery.
Also, anybody have any interest in the stock motor/trans and rear end? I does not appear like it would run. I have not tried to turn it. I plan to squirt oil down the cylinders, let it sit for a week and try to rotate it. I plan to sell that.
Also have the 1929 Coach body (minus doors), cowl and fenders that I will more than likely get rid of. PM me if you are interested in these parts.
I posted this about 4 years ago back on page 28 or 29. I have decided to sell (engine/trans not included) Steel frt fenders, glass boards & wide rr fenders. Real Must 2 frt, Corv swing rear. Clear title in my name. If anyone is interested, PM me for more info. You can buy a fiberglass body only for about the same $, but why? asking $15K
A picture of my floor in my coupe.

US phaeton (Fisher) -v- Ozzie (Holden) phaeton & roadster
Found this a while back for a 34 dash . How rare is this ??
MGTSTUMPY...........mark. The 1935 Chevrolet standard series phaeton your showing in red & black paint. Was the 2014 Grand National Roadster Show, grand champion. First time for a Chevrolet to win it. That chassis was stretched 3-5 inches, and the body was stretched on the cowl under the hood.. The body for the 35 phaeton USA was built in Tarrytown NY as were the roadsters. Both bodies were built by an OUTSIDE SOURCE , supplying to GM. I believe that company to be Hercules Campbell . Closed cars and the Cabriolet body styles were produced by Fisher body.
From what I have been able to observe the USA main body the SWAG LINE as the Auzzies call it , down the sides is way diff from my red phaeton pictured a few posts up. See the black 35 phaeton swag line mark posted pictures of. Also as I discovered the Auzzie HOLDEN cowl is about 1 1/8" wider than a USA cowl. I know this because I bought a CARTER-DUVAL style windshield and it was 11/16" per side too wide. We narrowed it to fit.
1934-35 standard series roadster and phaetons USA , the windshield frame only has 3 metal sides , the Auzzie HOLDEN has all 4.
this is an extremely rare car, the 1933 Chevrolet STANDARD CC SERIES roadster made in Australia by HOLDEN.
In north America the standard series for 1933 consisted only of a 3 window coupe and a 2 door sedan
Possibly the only 34-35 chev in North America or in this case Canada to have a duval style
Notice the top of the cowl section has the cowl vent removed , because of the Duval windshield sits on top of that area. The replacement panel was formed with special machinery and a modified die. Note the body bead rolled into it and also the panel goes over the cowl and forms around the wood U collar underneath.. Because of where this car was originally from , the water got trapped between the wood collar and the metal cowl top. It looked like a Swiss cheese with large holes . To repair this properly cost me around $1200.
I really like the carter/duval really adds some style to it. It will be powder coated satin black.

@madmike3434 . do you have a build thread going? you really need to show us more.

here is how the top of the cowl was found after all the bondo and whatever else had been applied to it.
the firewall was chemically dipped in a solution that does not hurt the metal and completely removesd the rust.
