Default More Speedster Progress Photos

Heres some pic.s form the other week. The dark spot on the hood is Gun Bluing...just testing the results of it. Ill be adding a Holley 1904 class bowl carb to her soon. The cowl is set back 12". I Have not been able to find out what the dash came out of...and guess?
Enjoy
Wick

Appears to be a 1931 Chevy dash.

Ford and Chevy parts must make the car a FORCH.

Throw in some Plymouth parts, and you can have a PORCH.


sorry about that, it's still early for me. LOL

Yeah, gotta love those knobbies. I use to have a couple of them on the back of the 31 coupe that I gave my daughter. The knobbies that I had were Allstate. Is anybody producing new Knobby tires in 19 and 21 inch size? I wouldn't mind having a couple.

I like it.

Is that a Chevy starter bolt in that carb linkage?

You guys are good. Reece you got it right! It's a Big Block bolt,ive been saving it maybe 20 years. Gas pedal is a 32 spoon,it was in a box of linkage's I bought for a $1 last fall. There was a hole in the middle of it with a plate bolted to it (wider pad) Did you notice the Speedometer? When I moved the cowl back I had to remake the clucth and brake pedal,carb,spark rods. The suport rods for the radiator,you turn the nut on the rod and they come off. The seat is from a Model A Fire Truck,8"s removed.
30 radiator on a 29 crossmember (notched) Shortened frame horns. A 36 ford windshield is next. Shifter has gun bluing on it. The rear of the frame came off a old trailer,the other 1/2 of frame had been dammaged in the front. the rear has been z.
Ive got shocks for it (knee action)
Driving...very quick,smooth,stops good. Seat is good for a long drive. No rattles long as I strap the hood down.
