  2. Moose, you're a frickin' genius! I seriously appreciate your time and effort. I could see it in my head, and am capable of doing the prep, masking, and painting, but am not capable of creating an illustration of what I see In my head in order to show others what I'm thinking. Thank you so much! I always look forward to seeing your new work on the FAS.

  3. @Animal ...Thanks for the complement Animal and your very welcome. As I've said before I really enjoy helping people realize their visions plus it's a lot of fun to play around with Photoshop.

    Thanks to everyone here for sharing your talents so generously,

    Is there anyone who would care to Paint this one?
    The proposed colors are dark green metallic (original), with charcoal grey for the top (belt line up).
    Also, lowering a tad (especially the rear), and Sombrero wheel covers would be the cheese!

    Can someone please photoshop this with the red as the body color and then the frame as body color versus gloss black. The wheels will be gloss black 40 Ford with chrome caps and rings. Windshield and posts will be black as well. I posted several views do the one of your choosing. This is the car in the pounding out a T roadster thread. 30388A45-BE20-4E82-8088-863039051290.jpeg 5D2B4121-95EB-42F5-9F40-755116F29FD9.jpeg 543E9EDE-E5E4-47DC-8E24-BB0068074B28.jpeg FD08F026-11E2-4FC0-A560-2A37776E390B.jpeg

    True, that. It can't be as easy as he makes it look.
    Why, just to find a Sombrero at just the right angle took plenty good time!

    Much gratitude to TheMoose. The intent is to run a hood, just haven't got it done yet as I may have to bow the sides slightly for clearance. And yes Dick, It is still a tough call.

    This Merc has a sensational de-crowned roof. I can't help but try to imagine it with a corresponding sectioning through the body. Say, 2"? (Just enough to eliminate the dog-leg in the body line.) Any takers?

    Thanks, Moose. That has more impact than I imagined.

    Years ago, Sonny Daout told me of a Merc he was building for himself. In addition to the de-crowned roof, it was both chopped AND sectioned. I have often searched in vain for any photos.
    If it does ever emerge, I know it will be awesome, as he also is a customizer of rare talent and vision.

    Moose, I apologize up front for "borrowing" your image. I was curious to see how the Model T would look in
    different makeup. With all this traditional stuff going on it would be interesting to take it back to the 60's.

    If you could make the radius rods black and the windshield posts black that would be awesome. I am having a hard time with the red on red with black suspension and windshield parts. There isn't any budget for chrome unfortunately.

    And the tires weren't cheap (Excelsior Stahl Sport Radials) and are here, so blackwalls is what it will be. I know Now I am sounding picky Thanks all.

    Hey Moose,

    Nice depiction of a cool street sleeper. Back in 1961, my brother saw a similar car and immediately started drawing the motor compartment with a couple of inline SBC motors like Lefty Muddersbach's fast FED. It looked nice and neat. Then, he actually measured everything on a real car and said the two inline SBC motors would fit.

    So, that was going to be his next backyard project, whether it was "dreamsville" or getting down to it, I still remember the look on his face when I told him, "OK, lets get started." Both motors would be set up the same and would drop right into the huge motor compartment, one at a time.


    He had plenty of time during his recovery to write, draw and think of the future projects. He even asked if I thought another Gas Coupe or even an altered roadster would be worth it to start all over again. Wow... but for this twin SBC powered sedan , it would be his craziest idea.

    Of course a couple of sets of headers, a C&O Stick Hydro, a narrowed rear/axles with slicks under the fenders, and a full roll cage inside. The ultimate Bixby Knolls Drive-In cruiser. For the drags, it would probably be in the A/Gas class or some altered sedan class. Everything would fit inside that huge motor compartment and under the hood. Possible?

    Posssible? Certainly!
    Tom McMullen's '32 Roadster was a Hot Rod icon....But how about his tiny, twin-Chevy powered Austin (complete with roof rack)?! https://www.hotrodhotline.com/feature/guestcolumnists/DavidBrackett/09tommcmullen/
    Now, that's a sleeper!!!
