The headlights on the one you posted are very cool, joedoh.
A marked departure from the pedestal head lights on most cars of that era.

bob.w. I've said it before and I'll say it again. You are my hero. I'm in too.

Here's a couple pics of the radiator shell. Kept striping stuff off the cowl. Very rusty pieces on the cowl top. I'm adding the 1/8" by 2" cowl band to add strength and to hopefully make it look more like a roadster cowl.

Nice shell and badge. (Thanks, Bob!)

You're the undisputed KING of "something different".

Default The Party Roadster

Hupmobile in front, Chevy in back. Sorta like a Mullet.

Tweeked the cowl band a bit and welded it some more. Made and welded lower patch panels on both sides.

Thanks for your support, guys. Thanks for posting Hupmobile bodies. The sport roadster is way cool.
