Default '30 Tudor - the kit car

It looked like this on the box...


...but when I opened it up, this is what I got!?








It also came with a complete wood kit, frame with a Ford MII suspension welded on, and a Granada 9" rear axle. The firewall has been cut into and I noticed the rear fenders have been widened by 2-3" (both poorly I might add)

The plan will be to put it together, maybe using the A frame, maybe building my own. Probably a small inline 6 or v6, and a auto trans. Tall skinny wheels, maybe original A's, and a mild chop. I'm thinking, paint the body and leave the fender patina.

For now, it all went out to my Dad's shed for storage until next winter.

I'm sure it'll be cool. Wouldn't mind picking one of those up myself.

Be sure to read the instructions, and don't take parts off the tree until you are ready to use them. Good luck!

Well, it did come with some instructions - he had several books and parts catalogs.

I was thinking the same thing! The I got to wondering if this was a fiberglass kit, I was impressed by the patina on the fiberglass! This looks like a fun project for sure!
