    How did Dee work out as mayor? When I ordered my deuce roadster body, his daughter in law told me it would take "a little longer" since Dee was now mayor and only he built and hung the doors. What with all the things going on with the city council, Dee wasn't building the doors as quick. Not to worry, 11 years later Dee is gone, sadly, but his doors fit and latch just as perfect as the day I mounted and squared the body. Great craftsman, I hope his service to your town was as good!

    IMG_4273.JPG IMG_4063.JPG IMG_3243.JPG I've been driving this Wescott bodied hiboy 18 + years now. The chassis is original down to the original mechanical brakes. After driving it for 10 years with a B engine, I upgraded to a 34 V8. Paint? It's still in jell coat.
    Top picture is spring, '98, back deck on my house (no garage space).
    Center picture, August, '98 at Bonneville.

  6. IMG_1887.JPG IMG_1888.JPG IMG_1874.JPG Glass body also. It has only 7,000 miles on it now over the past 10 years. Solid as a rock, never had a stress crack appear.
    I did spend several days welding in cage work and other reinforcements.
    Don't have to worry about rust is what I like.
    Did have to spend months getting it blocked smooth, especially the deck lid. Had tons of waves on the lid but came out nice in the end.
    NAM body out of Ct.

    Glass cars are now old enough to have history. My early 80's '34, "Flying Flathead" coming back together

    Nice sedan delivery! What size/brand tires and rims are you running, they look great. Getting ready for some new tires on the 32.

    IMG_0072.JPG IMG_0069.JPG This is my first experience with building a 'glass car. The body is very well built and is a hell of a lot more fun than not having a Model 40 while still saving and searching.

    Does anyone know if Wescott is still building glass bodies. I called about 6 months ago and Carl said he would have to do the building on a 34 if I wanted one. I haven't seen any ads for the bodies in a few years. He built the best bodies in my opinion. I have owned several and they are still going! I bid on one on ebay but didn't win.

    Yes, Westcott IS still building bodies!
    I live 3 blocks from Westcotts. I stopped by last week and Carl was working on a order for one of their 32 phaeton bodies!
    If you order it, he WILL build it for you!

    Who made the body and frame and what are your plans for it?

    The body is a BeBop's body out of Tennessee. I went with every option they had, except the fold out windshield(cost over function didn't add up to me). The old guy in the background(aka Dad, aka Best Friend) and I built the chassis using AMS rails. It is going 1940 Ford Mandarin Maroon, wheels painted body color with poverty caps. Axle, bones will be powder coated gloss black, all suspension hardware in front is polished stainless. Worked over Ford 302 with a T5. Building this one as a daily driver, with some decent road trips already planned.

    SanfordsOtherSon – “This 'glass body is the most 'stock-like' I've ever seen! Does anybody know who made it? I found the Image on Google from a site called American Dream Cars. It's basically a site to sell street rods. I've looked but can't find anything like it. Un-filled roof, working cowl vent, crank-out windshield, stock hinges...awesome!”

    SanfordsOtherSon – Got this pm from ‘37GAS’: “That fiberglass 5 window was built by a guy in Florida about 7 or 8 years ago. He moved to Maine or someplace up there right after I bought his last body built in Florida. The last I heard he was out of business and was trying to sell his molds. The bodies where top notch, I have one.”
