    I believe Royal Shifter built it for a Oklahoma guy. I seem to remember seeing a pic here before

    The 28-29 Model A sunvisor makes a better picture than an original T which more resembles an outside home window shade.
    The Chevrolet radiator shell is a nice departure from the usual A or Deuce shell.

    All in all a pretty nice Hiboy Coupe!

    I thought it was a pretty cool ride too, nicely detailed.
    Not sure what's going on with the pics, I can only load two at a time.

    The car was built by Me And my Brother. Royalshifter is a good friend of mine, and he installed the door glass for my brother as I didnt have time to do it before the car was shipped to Louisiana, after He was transfered there for Work. The pics posted by Royal were taken then.My brother is Hayes-T here on the Hamb. We left it unchopped and unchanneled cause he didnt want it to look like everybody elses T.....THANKS JOHN

    Yes this is my car . I used to live in Rio Vista Ca. Got transfered with my job to Ruston La.This car was built by my Brother (PORKSHOP) and me over the past 5 1/2 years. It was in black suede for a while and now in Green. Royalshifter installed the glass for me when I found out that I was moving , He is a good friend and always willing to help out and I thank him for that.It was at Billetproof in Antioch a couple of times and now the Lonestar Roundup this year. Thank you for all the comments . The CAR would not be were it is today with out all the Talent of my Brother. Thanks for the feedback from all of you .

    But most of all thanks John

    Amazing how cars are noticed and admired more when they have finish paint, top and an interior, isn't it?
    Sweet ride.
     
  15. Sure catches the early 60's vibe. Looks like a model I might have built back then.
    Great looking car.

    You bet. The first round up photo thread I opened was the one with the ratrods. I didn't get to go this year and was wondering what I missed. When I saw all the tractor trailer exhaust pipes "WTF" went through my head.

    This car is the one that really stood out and got my attention though, great car and it's funny that someone said "straight out of 1961" because I almost typed "It looks like it came straight out of 1960!"

    Hats off to you and your brother for building such a sweet car!

    Thanks for the build compliments guys but I gotta tell ya Scott Hayes and John Hayes built this car 100% and I seen it in the build stages....they worked their ass off and what a quality Hot Rod. I just installed the door glass and during its progress donated Scott with a 4 bolt main engine that needed a rebuild.....oh yeah and helped him out on some nice garnish moldings. (very very small credit) he he.

    "someone said "straight out of 1961" because I almost typed "It looks like it came straight out of 1960!"

    We gotta do the archaeological research on the dating...research the ads in Car Craft on the arrival of chrome wheels and bullets, plot that against whitewall width...I think the wide whites were dying out just about the time chrome wheels and bullets came in, so narrow timeline here.

    Those door window garnish mouldings are stock Model T pieces or modified Model As.

    That is one good looking car and I can visualize it on the cover of one of those little .75 special editon rod books that came out every so often in the early 60's
