This has been a big project. but I'ts been fun. I couid have street rodded it. But choose to put it back to I'ts original state. my thinking was anybody can street rod one but not everyone has the time nor the patience to put it back to I'ts original state.
Doug you look awfully young to be doing all of that! Now you just have to wait about 10 years to get a license so you can drive it!
Nice job!!!! And appreciate your comment about rodding.
Doug: I congraulate on the idea of putting it back like it was way back when. I have a nieghbor that is working on a 31 A coupe. He is Rodding it. Granted it looks great but would have been abeaut to see it back to the original. My two "T" are as best as I could get them. One I worked on for nearly 20 years. My business took up to much time.
The newer one is a 1917 Depot Hack. The body come to California from Dewitte New York The body was built by Pleasantville Manufacturing, all Red Oak and clear spar varnich. Engine is a standard "T", with starter.
Keep us posted on how it looks when it is done.
Thanks steve I started very young. In 10 years I'll be working on this
I'm doing one very similar. What color did you paint it? I like that shade.
Thanks for your comment Bill Iam very happy that I choose to go this way. I do like street rods THis is one of mine
Craig the paint is nason fulthane I'ts called vegabond green but crosses over to another name I dont know it right off but well get it tomorrow for you i'ts at my shop. I had the paint store mix up three differant collors I like it the best! thanks Doug
Very nice Doug. Beautiful car, and it looks like you have a great little helper there.
Keep up the good work!
Doug, is that Chevy truck a '34 or '35?
My first restoration project was a '35 Chevy series QB truck.
I was looking for a T but as a teenager, the prices were way out of my league.
I got the Chevy for $350, but it was in really rough shape.
Your Willys pickup made me think of this picture. 1951 Willys powered by Chev 283. It met an early and unfortunate end about a month after the picture was taken.
You done a good thing there! Your little buddy looks very happy about it as well. Congratulations on a great job, (and keeping her original)!
