Those look pretty bitchin'
Here's a crude picture of what I imagine I would build if I weren't so busy drawing pictures of what I imagine I would build.
Perhaps you could put a model T grill shell around the radiator and go hoodless?
Without windshields, I hate to drive one on the Interstate during Lovebug season!
anyone see the latest copy of hot rod (i think)?? it has whats called a p-32....inspired from an old wwII fighter penned by foose....
Yeah, I'm not sure how I feel about "theme rods." There are a lot of cool parts going into that build, and much as I love the P-40 Warhawk, I think that would be a neater car if he'd build it as a conventional hot rod with a Lincoln V-12.
ok this is just the opposite car parts on a tractor. ????
This tractor is so cool i had to post it. its kinda' off topic, but...
Now THAT is just TOO COOL !
Heres a good looking tractor front end for a roadster.
Its a Graham-Bradley built by the Graham auto company, marketed with David-Bradley the same maker as the walk behind tractors posted above.
They were sold by Sears and Roebuck in the late thirties. Not many of em around. I'd like the sheetmetal for a rod and a complete one to restore.
Can't wait to see what progress you make with this thing. A buddy of mine inherited a few acres in the country when his father-in-law died and one of these is rusting in his field. He's flipping back and forth on selling it (the complete tractor) or doing something with it.
I have gotta make me one of those
I'd like to see these drawings if they are still around.
Check out the latest issue of Traditional Rod & Kulture Illustrated.
The Massey 510 Combines had 327's in them that were balanced at the factory.
Someon at H.A.M.B. will do that and the traditional tractor restoration guys will cry in their beer! "Why did he chop up that original sheetmetal and use it for a CAR????"
I like this grill design. Put that in a deuce shell.
This is a PORSCHE tractor,cool front (-:
No one will cry. All the tin is repoped for the Ford tractors and it's dirt cheap.
that is really awesome!
Scott I smell a concept drawing brewing.... am I right?
yes. i have been working on another sketch, but after seeing that tractor im gonna change the frontend out. that thing is awesome.
Anyone from out west (think South Dakota or Montana) knows that these things are litered EVERYWERE! I'll have to get back out to Grandma's and Grandpa's to look for new fodder.
That's whats neat about the Fergies is that they have an aluminum grill and hood that can be polished out but they look very similar to the Ford 2/9/8n's.
Thanks Frank for digging this one up
Not feeling the skirted cars at all, I think the open wheel design suits it a bit more and possibly the side guards on the rear wheels like most tractors have would be a nice add on. Not too sure how they would do traveling down the road at 60mph though
How about this one? It is a 1953 Cockshutt (no, I am not kidding)
I second that, I found 5 of them in a row when I was hunting.
How's about 'is?
I sell 'em on my website here: http://www.importtractorparts.net/dash.html
