So I decided to make a build thread for the roadster. I had the car almost to a roller point as in my avatar but a good friend of mine made me an offer on the rolling chassis for his upcoming project so I decided to cut it loose to him, I was also in somewhat of a financial bind at that time and wasn't sure what was even going to happen with the '32. I was trying to get through school, had other projects that needed time and money and the '32 was put to the back burner. Come December, my mom was diagnosed at that time with terminal cancer and only given an initial 2-3 months to live. It was a huge hit and crushed me pretty much being only 23 at the time and getting that news. I told her I would sell all the '32 parts I collected over the past 2 years and help her out, she wasn't having that what so ever and told me to get the car done so she could have a ride in it as she knew it meant a lot to me. She started improving health wise and the doctors found out that her cancer was caused by the BRCA1 gene, a hereditary cancer that is passed on, luckily they're able to treat it better, but I may also be at risk for it as well now. Well February comes round and a few guys and myself head to the Rolling Bones open house in New York. We brought a lot of parts with us and I decided to have Keith and Ken build a roller for the '32. It was a big decision at the time, but with graduating in my last semester at school and being at home, I decided to pull the trigger and do it, and now come August, the frame is ready and I couldn't be happier. My mom is now HOPEFULLY cancer free, she went in for her last chemo treatment today, they say all the cancer cells are dead, thanks God! She wants to see the car on the road just as much as I do, I think. Soooo anyhow on to the pictures I have right now on the computer. When I get to the shop tomorrow I'm going to get a lot more. The deuce is going to be powered by a 291 Desoto hemi with 10.5:1 slugs, ported 330 heads, a solid roller cam from Donnie Johansen of Contrera's Cams, and topped off with a Weiand 4x2 setup with for 97's. The body is at the metal shop right now, we're blending the tops of the doors in with the cowl to look more streamlined like a '36 roadster cowl section, all done in metal and lead. Well on to the pics! Updates of more pictures tomorrow! The mockup hemi, sure looks great doesn't it! Killer looking mounts Detail work of tunneling the rails for the '36 rear bones This took FOREVER to find, a NOS '32 shell and insert (repop bezel and cap for now), yes the rest of the pictures are all in my room where the parts sit haha Original '32 firewall The Weiand 4x2 with the 4 97's all freshened up ready to breathe! Anyhow, that's it for now, I'm excited to finally get rolling on the car, hopefully get it all mocked up in the next couple weeks.
