    Sometimes you get the gold mine, sometimes you get the shaft! So far, I have been mostly shafted!:( Congrats on your deal!

    I’m going to try and get the 37 running as it’s complete. The 32 will hopefully be ready by next year. I’m gonna keep this 32 and my wife is gonna re do the 32 I’ve had!

    She’s going to repaint the full fendered 32 I’ve owned for a couple of years now. After a repaint, some chrome work and an interior it’ll be 100% her car

    I couldn’t agree more.

    the 32 will get a hot lil flatty in it, with a top loader and a 201, done all traditional high boy style. Also leaning towards a 3-4” chop too. Just depends on how I fit in it…

    the 37 will get a dropped axle, providing the engine isn’t locked up I’ll get it running. Looks like it’s gonna be a hot piece, hell I got to looking last night and it even has a scatter shield on it!!

    but yeah a little lower with some bugs and Littles on it and have @Nailhead Jason work his magic on buffing out the Henry paint and it’ll stay like it is.

    Bro, you know I think you're one of the most solid guys I know. This is karma coming to fruition. You deserve a killer score like this. Great cars man, I can't wait to see them in person some time. Huge congrats

    My envy level is an 11 out of 10 right now. Congratulations on a fine score! I have no doubt you will bring them both back from their 60 plus year rest. I see a couple of build threads in your future.

    Also got to looking for the dipstick to see how the oil looks and found this…

    so looks like I’m gonna go ahead and pull the oil pan so I can put another dipstick it a little further back so it clears the header..

    I was figuring if I’m gonna do that I might as well pull the engine and inspect the internals while I’m at it.

    And how about this boss linkage??? This dude was wild, most stuff I’ve seen over the years from the 50’s is pretty crude, this linkage while strong as an elephant is pretty slick!!

    yeah man the crazy thing is there were a couple of people that actually came to look at them and low balled the seller and didnt buy em for what I felt was essentially a buy on get one free
     
  27. It was your day in time! Congratulations!
    (ps: trade you my running, driving 32 Tudor for the 32 coupe.
    That would free you up to get on the 37. :D )
