I don't know jack about what is or isn't a hot rod... but that is beautiful and very cool.
I'll offer a few more kudos to this ride;...everyhing is just right!..I wouldn't change a thing! a real rolling work of Art!
I have a 'just curious' question about this ride...
In the trunk, the upholstered covered box, is that the battery box or something else?
yeah I'd like one of those speedo's too, like every one else,
(your mail box is full)
How much is this car chopped?
That is nice, thanks for sharing.
Can anyone give specifics on the rear suspension set-up? I see it looks like leafs springs, any idea from what, etc? Anyone with pictures of the chassis?
I've wondered why Jim Busby sold his entire collection, I seem to remember hearing that he wanted to go racing again??
He's had so many very nice cars. Nice to know that this local(Pasadena) car was restored. FWIW Will Moore is one of the Original Outriders when the club restarted (he made the plaques).
He always finds very cool old hot rods from the crevices of the world.
I just came.
I'd like to see some pictures following the changes made back in the day along with what they started with....
OK this is the best i can do, i had to take a picture of a picture i took when Jim was building the car. If you look close you recognize a couple of other cars in the background. I searched through every photo i had and this all i can find ..sorry for the quality
Busby pulled up with this in the Swap Meet at the L.A. Roadster Show a few years ago and got out of it and left it running right in front of me!!! He stopped to talk to someone in a swap booth........to just be able to walk around it a few times and take pictures of it while it sat there rumbling at idle was sheer pleasure! It's just as clean and beautiful in person as it looks in the magazine article........one of the all time best Deuce Coupes.......period!
Man! that coupe is AWESOME!!!! Every detail looks to be right on.Greg
one of the baddest 5 holes of ALL time...true story....
Take a look at the name of this website, it means something.
Glassguy, cause all his cars are glass.
Ch-ching, OOH the sound of gold chain against a billet steering wheel!
WOW, you gotta really be into polishing to own that car! I'd love to find it in a barn with a leaky roof after its been sitting untouched for about 50 years. Looks like a museum piece right now. But wait a minute, that would mean I'd be in my 80's by that point. Nevermind...
BTTT for H.A.M.B. Newbies........class 101 how to build a 5 window, and what color to use when you paint it!
thanks for bringing this BTTT. never seen that thing before. that motor is cadillac porn!
Took that class 30+years ago, still usen the same color
I can't stop looking at this beauty......
STUNNING!!! car is flat out buetiful! even my buddy "camaro guy" likes it
Where's the rust, primer, and skulls?
This is what we should all strive to achieve.
Did I read that right, a Vega steering box?
Jim also bought Jack Underwood's full fendered 5 window. It had an Olds in it and was on the the cover of R & C in,I believe, '58 or 9. It is still one of my favorite full fendered cars of all time.If anyone has the mag please post the pic---I'm sure everyone will enjoy it. As a side note, Jim really is a good guy and truly appreciates our hot rod history.Those two cars side by side would turn most of us into Gumby.
