Default A Hupmobile ???

My two projects, the Bantam and the '29 Chevy Roadster Pick Up are about 85% done. Remember, the Chevy is being built out of left over stuff I had stored in the woods. Well, there's still some junk out there. Enough to start another roadster.
Winter will be here soon and that means lots of building time. I bought this Hupmobile cowl (pictured) 5 years ago and luckily found a matching radiator shell (not pictured) with a good emblem. Trimmed most of the crap off of it today. Also picked up 5 '30 Chevy coupe quarter panels. So, all I need to do is make some doors and assemble a roadster body. In the weeds is a '28 Dodge frame and in that pile of nondescript stuff is a 8" Ford rear end, an Econoline front axle and some early Chevy front axles. Got Chevy small blocks ranging from 283, 327, 350 to 400 cu. in.

I've included a pic of a Chevy roadster body mocked together (not mine) and a pic of a running roadster that is what I'm trying to achieve.

I can work on this project all winter without spending much money, which is in short supply lately.

I love it when a stash pile comes together.

Go, bob, go!

Got a horn for the hood ornament?

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Looking forward to seeing that street / strip Bantam done

A couple of months shop work and it & 29 Chevy will be on the road.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
