Default My Ancient Altered

Currently sitting in my back yard. Once was, and maybe will be again. Time will tell. Needs a body, engine, trans, new bushings on the suspension... well, almost everything. Who puts a NASCAR engine in a quarter-miler? 351-4V Cleveland, AOD, 9-inch with disc brakes.

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.

Sorry, Skip. I don't mean to be a smart-ass, just the first thing that came to mind.


Here's my favorite pic. A few good friends, collective resources and some good fortune made it possible.

Fiberglass '34 Chev Roadster race car shell.

Just picked this up off of CL. Like most old Chevies, it will need wood installed. Just from loading it in my truck, I am itching all over. The width is perfect, but it is about 20 inches longer than the former '32 Bantam body.

If I chicken out on using it, I am pretty sure i can get my investment back.

Kind of a sad story. The shop that made it had a fire, and all the molds were destroyed. 40+ years of building car bodies gone. This is likely the last one.

I just got the black shell. No front end available. I am thinking that tapering the running boards down to the cowl would fix that. We don't need no stinking... Open it up for two seats, follow the directions in the fiberglass thread. Nothin' to it! Right???

How do I make it look rusty?

Built street stocks for 10 years, then went to IMCA dirt Modifieds where I won the 1988 rookie of the year. Won many awards for best appearing car and crew through the years.
