I don't know about the Chevy but there were 36-38 Buick Brewsters, most with the stock Buick front clip.

Re: The 1934 Brewster - Built On A Ford Chassis - Marketed By Rolls Royce

I think the stock 33/34 Fords were some of the prettiest designs ever. However, I agree with rockfla. Saying the Brewster is "butt ugly" is being too kind. It reminds me of Lyle Lovett singing she's...

Re: Oh Crap! I found another project...a '50 Club Coupe...am I nuts?

Interesting, the driver is smoking a pipe and stinking up the inside of a brand new car! I can't remember the last time I saw someone smoking a pipe

Re: 1934 Sedan rear fender cage nuts

I think you can remove the quarter window mechanism panel to access the top captive nuts. Four flathead screws I believe. The captive nuts in the dogleg are probably hidden by
the wood in that...

Re: Gas in oil

I'm thinking you might have an internal leak in your fuel pump and fuel is going down the oil fill pipe.

Re: 34 front window size

It would be very difficult to convey the glass "size" without an accurate detailed drawing since the glass has only two straight edges and the rest is compound curves. I suggest Bob's Classic Glass...

Re: Wood top ribs question

Do not install the chicken wire over bare wood. Place a strip of denim or muslin on the top of each rib. This prevents the chicken wire from squeaking or tapping on the wood while driving.
