My 3w out of hibernation after a 5 year nap. Also my 5w
Hey bangngears, your brickie needs to clean up his mortar joins LOL
And what is hiding under the hood on your 5w?
I like unchopped
5 windows look good with a little chop but 3 windows are perfect with stock height. Here is mine, thought about a haircut, but decided I liked it just the way it is.
That is a Aussie 5window coupe owned by Ian Harding it is a killer car
My coupe it is not finished and will never be cut while I own it
Is definitely a killer car!
the perfect pair , red 3/w red tudor
I'm sure you noticed this is sectioned, but I think it is chopped about 1&1/2 inches.
Bed shortened, hood lengthened, and channeled 6" back in the 1960's.
Trivia Question, Ollie's car was built with what other cars fenders and hood , Hint, It's an orphand brand.
Look like olds.
Close by being an Orphan car line now, not the maker of these parts .
Kevin, Pat Ganahl in RJ story said the fenders were '34 Ford and '37 Chevy. Ollie reportedly had used parts from 28-30 different cars. GM cars including Pontiac and Olds had some of the same curves. I'm still thinking about the hood.
It's not often I get to say this, but Pat's wrong . Another hint: I own a car with these very parts.
BTW, I seem to remember reading that description as well I believe in Street Rodder sometime in the 80's. I haven't read TRJ's article.....
Here's my patina blue 34 3W. that was a genuine 40's hot rod. .
I better clear the driveway so I can enjoy this 3W more .
Without seeing the front I'm going to guess it's the car with the Brewster grill
