There are a bunch of early BC builds that have a very "East coast" style to them.
No doubt this 32 is an Icon of BC hotrodding..............as stated, still being driven today by Jim's son........I have vivid memories of driving home from LARS about 10 yrs ago and catching up to Jim & brother on Hwy 101 just south of San Jose...........that day was hotter than hell and there's Jim & bro, sans top on 32, with wet towels wrapped around their heads to keep sunstroke away...........we honked & waved and stayed on c/control @ 75............so long distance travel was no stranger to this 32...........in fact, this roadster was driven round trip in mid-50's from BC to New York state on his honeymoon, long before Interstate hwy's...........
That’s the kind I’m immediately drawn to at any event. Gotta love that old time innovation!
mikie likes it!
Agreed, well done... I'm familiar with another Canadian hot rod that has that "east coast" thing going on from the same era as well ;-)
Man that thing is perfect! Right up my alley!
If I had the money I would most definitely build one like that today .... it's a dream I can't shake.
The "Apache" is a legend in this area, a great example of a deuce roadster.
Great little roadster, quite a feat to get All that Hemi under the hood! Sure would love to see more, especially the rear suspension set-up. Thanks Joey.
Don't build them like they used to, they used to be weird! But awesome wow that was some crazy innovation with the suspension
Awesome write up. GO KANADA!
.... that lil' f#cker is just right all right all right !!!
