    Because it's a chevy and the Orange motor actually matches the car. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1428391486.274114.jpg

    Because it's frame, frontend, steering arms, grill, and push bumper are all polished steel with clear powder oat, because I'm to poor for chrome. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1428391663.436984.jpg

    What makes my hot rod different?
    A Triumph frame, a rear mounted Austin mini engine, a home made body, taillights made from '38 Chevy headlight pods with '64 Falcon lenses, Guide headlamp shells with more '64 Falcon inserts adapted to take sealed beams, Mack AC styled snout. That's all I can think of for now:D

  12. It's getting closer to rolling.
     
  13. There's been three Essex mentioned so far in this thread, and they were a Hudson product, I have a 28 and 29 Hudson, not Essex. They are slightly larger than the Essex, and so far, I'm the first since this thread began, to have late twenties Hudson's.
    Guess that makes em different.:cool:

  14. Ditto. Nothing different or unique here...just an old Ford with an obsolete motor, antiquated brakes, and belly-button styling. I'm just painting by numbers.

    Mine is regularly street driven, is non traditional but 60's inspired and legitimately runs low 9's. Makes the new hi-po cars look stupid off a street light.

  18. Mine's different because it is a Chevy...with a SBC motor...that was originally built and installed in a Ford...then transplanted into the Chevy.

    It is because I seem to always like something on my builds to be different in a one of a kind sort of way while still retaining some of the stock look.

    This makes my 48 Plymouth kinda different. The car had to be rewired, and I really like electrical work, especially panel work, so here's what I ended up with. It gets a lot of comments at car shows.:D 003.JPG
