Very cool, and 8 speed transmission using a stock k-member; that has got to be a first. Let us know what it is like when you do your first test drive!

Does a V8-60 powered glass roadster on a '31 frame count?

Moving for the first time under it's own power in over 40 years. Brakes didn't work so well, hence the comment at the end. Turned out to be a faulty master cylinder, works great now. Thanks to Dad, Mark, Kyle and O.C. for the last minute thrash to get it going and thanks to Kyle for taking the video.

Here's a shot of mine several years ago......

.....and here it is more recently as I try to finish all my half-started metal work......



It's only been 28 years, why should I rush now.
I sold a 5w body back in the spring so it's given me an influx of cash to buy all the big ticket items needed to finish this thing.....

Heres my roadster that has almost gone full circle...

It was hot rodded back in the sixties and then crashed in the early seventies and redone in the style of the time..



Couple years later it was stripped and hacked about quite badly, it then sat about for 20 ish years before i got this in '97



This is how it sits now, just last few bits to finish, waiting on my ignition coming back so I can fire it up!

The Roadster looks great, Gary.


Here's mine, banger-powered, currently sitting with the head off due to gasket problems.

I'm building a '32 roadster, I found a complete rolling chassis and found a rebuilt flathead & tranny and got all the other traditional pieces, although I have a Brookville roadster body. Wish I had enuff money for a real roadster body!

Here is a shot of mine..I bought it last year at around this time.It is a Right hand drive model, deluxe V8.It has recently been bare metaled and repainted.I have fitted chopped posts and screen,BLC head lights and dropped the h/lamp bar,lowered it a tad and fitted dual exhausts with Porter mufflers.The car came with a couple of gallons of ethanol that had gone bad and it ruined the fuel pump diaphram,the fuel hose and the carb..so new items were fitted.The original wheels were changed and the spare wheel mount removed and replaced with an original spreader bar.The body is in perfect condition with zero rust found when stripped back.Awaiting a slot at the trim shop for a roof to be covered and the seat squab lowered.When the weather improves I`ll get around to fitting a set of hydraulic brakes to it and getting it lowered a tad more.

Here's my banger Tudor found near Saginaw, MI last year about this time. It was sitting for about 50 years in barn and then in a small garage. Bought it from the grandson of the original owner.

I am hot roddin' it just a little bit but trying not to destroy what time has done to it.....
