    All I got was Vise Grips and Tin snips...no '40 Standard in my driveway:( I think I got screwed (once again)

    P.S. That's one straight looking coupe. Nice score

    Bueno! That car looks like it's a 15 year old used car. How are the floors and engine?

  4. Santa must have left all the best gifts south of the border before he headed my way.
    Nice...

    Apparently it was parked since 1981, the floors are in good condition. About the engine, the carburetor was missing, the water pumps were glued, the springs of the coals of the starter got rid of the corrosion, all that is already in the process of repair

  9. At least you got vise grips, Jack. Haha, in a gift bag from one of the nieces, I got a scented candle with a TOBACCO scent........think about that for a moment.
    Nice coupe, Potsie (remember Happy Days?)

    As you can see in the photos, it brings wheels of all sizes, fortunately I already found the four with old tires, but the wheels are 15" WhatsApp Image 2019-12-28 at 14.53.00 (1).jpeg WhatsApp Image 2019-12-28 at 14.53.00 (1).jpeg WhatsApp Image 2019-12-28 at 14.53.00.jpeg WhatsApp Image 2019-12-28 at 14.53.01 (1).jpeg WhatsApp Image 2019-12-28 at 14.53.01.jpeg

    Hey TX57, that's a great gift...light one of those candles up and maybe the wife wouldn't send me out to the garage to smoke my cigars:D

    I will try to save the old upholsery that the 40 brings, first a mega wash and clean the rivets, the last photo is from the cover of the driver's door already clean.

  27. Wow! Great looking '40! Love those '40 Standard Coupes, but I'm just a little biased.:) 20170917_072324.jpg
     
  28. I tell you, quality of builds coming from the North Pole aren't what they should be:). Great looking car!
