    PLEASE restore that race car! The world has far more Stone Stock and Hot Rodded '32 5Windows than you can think of and only a handful of "Documented" Stock cars. That could be on the show field at Hershey or any other AACA National event. Thanks for saving it and keep us updated with the project.

    Del, you have a nice old piece of regional history. Anybody can have a chromed up hot rod, they are all over the for sale sections. What you can't purchase is history, this car is a piece of that. While you might not be a racing fan I think that if you notice the responses to your post you will see that changing the vehicle will take away any character it has and just become another piece of lost Americana. Since you have some memorabilia from its prior life it is possible to resurrect the car to its original heritage or even just get it running and retain that original as found look. I'm sure that it will draw more attention than you would expect. If you don't save history it turns into dust, rust or a cheap tool at the discount store. If you really want a hot rod, sell the old race car to someone that will appreciate it and use the money to purchase something you would enjoy. .02c

    Thanks Dick....I have wanted this ol race car since I was a little kid...I never thought in a million years that the family would sell it but since my Dad was one of Bill Jones' best friends and helped on the car at times his son knew how I built cars he knew I would be the one to appreciate it and preserve its southern dirt track heritage. I wouls never think of making it any other way!!!!

    One of Dave Kneisel's cars belongs to a local guy and now does street duty. It's still pretty faithful to it's racing days though.

    Just in case you need more motivation... here is a photo of a "new construction" modified clone coupe that was at this year's Turkey Rod Run. Plus Bill Wendt's old deuce sedan. Have fun, Gary

    Del old racecars can be just as much fun as being on the road. When they get run into it wont piss you off as much either just push it back out and rivet it back together.

    That is a great car. I would leave it just like it is. There is a guy around my area that has one and he takes it to shows all the time and it always draws a crowd.

    I would say the price you paid was fair. Restored vintage cars are bringing 8k to 12k. The older ones seem to be worth more.

    Restore it as a race car.

    If that body dropped in my lap i'd have a new hammer and dolly project, but if the whole car did, i'd give it a tune up and some lights and drive the shit out of it, and mabey vintage race it!!!

    Thx man but the only reason the son sold it to me was I promised not to get rid of it unless I asked them first. I will keep you in mind though.

    I got it home today... All tires wouldn't hold air and the left rear wheel was locked solid. Had to jack it up and drive the trailer under it. The front big beam axle was bent back on both ends where the car ran into something and kinked the wishbone on the passenger side front. Need to break out the press and the torches!
