    Well , as usual for me I find something cool and now I'm wondering which one? 1951 Chrysler or 40 Buick...I'm curious as to the Hamb consensus... image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Buick has all the parts and body is excellent..no engine, front seat..Chrysler missing back bumper , no engine...straight car some spotty rust here and there...

    so, what will happen to the one that you do not decide, with our suggestions, to build? I vote Chrysler
     
  7. That 50 dodge roadster you let go. Man I wish I’d bought that.

    Buick is the only reasonable choice. Way cooler lines and it's a Buick!

    Choice's , A Westergard 40's style custom Buick or a early 50's Barris style Chrysler. If your going traditional, otherwise you got a street rod or a custom rod . I vote Chrysler , lots of Buicks out there. Larry

    The Buick has lot of advantages as far as the faster build and the favorite

    No Brainer the Buick. Way better for resale if you ever decide to sell it

    Buick. When you finish the Chrysler, it will still be ugly.

    Buick for sure, I think you said the front was redone? So put in a motor, trans and put the front clip on. And you are on the way to having fun

    Why not stick to your original project, the Mopar, THEN do the Buick?
