Chills!! Know what I mean?? Lost for adjectives, but a warning!!***DANGER HIGH VOLTAGE*** ~SOLOLOBO~
i freakin' love this car. that front axle is killer, the dang thing looks like a poor man's Miller; what is its origin? also; is that a B transmission and bellhousing?
Awesome car, I hope it goes to a good home.
Seems to have a lot of HAMB history as well.. '22
That front axle is a late teens early '20's Franklin. I don't know when the design change happened were the forged ends swapped from the Ford T style to the common I beam spindle most axles use. The steering box is also Franklin.
How did they adapt that T block to the A or '32 transmission?
These pictures may help answer the question.
THANKS! Guess that allowed the use of a stock length Model A crankshaft. Most A to T conversions have the flywheel flange cut off and reattached, not always a successfull deal.
Does anyone know the chronology of owners and locations of the car after Gerrick?
Anyone know anything about Art?
I found out about this car via the Model T Ford Club of America site, and knew Id find more here.
I found myself in posession of a Model A transmission recently, and keep thinking about how cool it would be to build an all-pre-1932 gow around it - including a Model T block like this car.
I saw this car at the Speedway Motors museum the week of bonneville speed week. It's owned by Bill Smith of Speedway Motors in Lincoln Nebraska. It's an cool car.
Is there any way to restore the pictures in this thread?
It's in Bill Smith's SPEEDWAY Collection, maybe someone out there could take new photos. Bob
I took a couple pics of it at the 2016 GNRS, my favorite car there.
Wow, love this thing! I want to build something similar w/ a GMC 6; I've got a set of '25 Buick frame rails and a MOPAR wavy axle, not like it, just inspired by it. K6
