Wow! Which one did the wife call dibs on?
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.
I saw the ad andI,m glad they went to a good home.
From memory there were no fenders for the 32
That is correct, unfortunately they got lost to time…
I got big plans for that paint, she gonna look right!!!
Good for you!
It pays to be nice. Parents raised you well. lol.
Good for you and cant wait to see what you do with them.
You catch more flies with honey...
I'm loving that 37
So any of y’all ever seen a scatter shield for a Flathead before??
Hotdamn!!, that's an incredible haul @hotdamn...Congratulations...Can't wait to see your bringing life back into them...did you get any historic pics of them in their Heyday...certainly was a go fast past without a doubt....
Not yet but I’m working on it!!!! Hope to see them this weekend coming up and maybe get some!!!
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!!
So missing Bonneville has its' upside! That's quite a haul, Del. Happy for you.
indeed it does!!
Amazing find! You found these on FB Marketplace? That’s even more amazing.
Great finds there! Seeing stuff like this makes me wish I hadn't been banned from f***book
I hear ya man, aside from a score like this youre probably better for it so theres that
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
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. )
