Still plodding away
Here's one that went backwards. I started with this.
and ended with this. It finally got done after I got rid of it.
as started in Summer 2019 and as it looks today as a daily driver Build time from scratch , single manned , 22 weeks.. No frills, just thrills.
34 Sedan Project about 3 years ago
And as it was in May 2020 going thru its transformation into a sedan delivery with a rear door
And early on in the building of the rear door
And from the rear a few months ago. I am in awe at what clever body men can do.
My '30 Closed Cab, before & after.
My F1, before & after.
My Nomad, Before & after & after again, back on a standard frame.
My '50 Olds before & after & after again, As a Gasser.
This is my 52 Plymouth I got in the spring of 2019. Mine is still in progress and moving rather slowly as this summer I have not had the chance to work on it much. The original plan was to just fix the mechanical stuff and make I drive then start customizing it. I ended up saying the hell with it and chopped it this spring. I am happy with it so far and it is my very first chop.
Photo is just after I got home.
Found it in the woods, and gave the farmer $100. for it. After a couple SBC's, I put in a 389 Pontiac with tri power.
Chickens were roosting in mine ! I actually pulled eggs out of the seat springs.
I guess I am just black and white , just seemed like a candy ass move , even for you .

A 2door 210 Wagon from Tennessee became the donor for my vision of what I thought a ElCamino might look like if GM had built them in 1956.
