Mines a little more hotrod then you guys like, but her she is:

59AB with a Merc crank, 39 trans, stock rear with 3.54's, juice brakes...pretty typical early hot rod stuff. The 33-34 Ford is my most favorite car.

I've had this one for a while now.
Been rounding up parts and I'm finally getting started.
Hope the have the chassis completed ready to go by spring.
Still looking for a few parts if anyone has some 33-34 stuff laying around.

My avatar is my 3 window '34. It is now in full primer and this week the doors will be re-fitted. Fenders to follow.
ALL that rust is gone. What a job that was!! The chassis is also done and waiting for the paint which is still at best, a month away. Trying to find a competent shop to re-do the dash as original. The gauges are at Williamson's being restored.
Will be selling the original 221 off and trans too. Decided to go for a new rebuilt flattie and trans.
Will also be selling off my 1953 Merc that was built as it would not fit the look of the car as I want it.
So many left over parts that I am replacing with cool NOS stuff I have been hoarding for years. The rest of all that stuff will also go some day. Just have to find a valid outlet besides Craigslist and their worthless tire kickers or eBag!

Restored 34 roadsterTwo cabbys both pretty much basket cases. Projects need to begin.
Missing parts for cabriolet are hard to come by!
