Yeah me to, although the top part looks pretty cool too!

Guess I better get a new camera...
Every time I view this page I have to clean off the key board seems to be all this drool on it.
I love that a 32 roadster body has just been dumped on it's side in the background.
The latest heap of parts, starting to coalesce as time allows... original rails kicked up about 2.5" out back with A front and rear crossmembers and a '40 center X and pedals. F1 steering, split bones, I've got a nice dropped heavy with deuce spindles for the front end... going closed drive welded QC out back. That pile of roadster underneath there will end up on top eventually.
All so purty.
You know how to find them. A good start to another traditional hotrod!
I wish I knew somthing about this. not pretty but rugged. looks like it had a set back y block, It also has homemade reversed rear wheels with the remains of some recap slicks.
34 Chassis I built for a customer a few years back.
Very nice Nailhead......now watch & someone will let you know that it's not Traditional
Yea I guess someone probably will, Flathead, dropped axle, quickchange and a model A spring, No welding on the chassis either, made new rivots and re-rivoted at all back together as well including all the new crossmembers etc I made. Its trad enough for me!
Wheels ruin it for me though, but as they say, the customers always right!!
Yeh! not a big fan of the Chromed Wires myself.....but hey, it's different & I like different.....be nice to see her when the Body & all is on her
BTT, I need some more inspiration for my current project..
I was Tig welding in the early 60's serving my apprenticeship.
Really like the legs on your frame table!
Uh..... you kinda are the inspiration!
Your work is exceptional.
Here is the chassis of my current project...still gathering parts though.
Love this thread, nothing but eye candy
I'll throw out a couple. This is for my '34 truck. 327, Muncie, Winters QC, etc. The spreader bar is stainless, it has been polished since this picture.
Nice Chassis Paul
Killer! That's gonna be a nice little truck!
Why thankyou, I was happy with the way that one turned out but im trying to get some more ideas for my own 32 chassis im knocking up at the moment, always good to see the many talented people of the HAMB's fine work..
Love the gold. What is the color name?
My brother's just-finished roadster was intended to reflect a mid-fifties build since he was most familiar (and had the extra parts from) his '56 Victoria.
Armed with original rails and a Tex Smith article on how to build a '32 chassis this is what he did:
It's House of Kolor "Solar Gold". Lots of metallic, but pictures just don't show it.
This just keeps getting better and better as it goes.....Now I am going to have to get started on my new 32 frame I guess.
