I spent yesterday making more brackets. I am on the roll. The wife is gone on vacation and I can do cars all day long without interruptions for honey do’s. Progress is measured by end products and I have them completed so it has been a good day.
My friend, Tom from Salem, sent me some pictures of his latest acquisition. Tom is well over 6 foot tall with legs that go on forever. He has purchased a very neat old style Deuce hiboy for his collection. I like all of his cars but this one is the best. Tom has not been into Deuces but loves model 40’s and 39/40 Fords. When I first met him in Danville, he owned a perfect Yosemite green 40 convert with a souped up flathead. He has a thing about flatheads and has owned several. His new roadster has the look and a super top profile. I have included some pictures for you to view. Thanks Tom.
Bob and I are planning a trip to Orange County tomorrow so I should have some new pictures for you,
Back in the garage for now…
Tom’s new Deuce roadster. This is all early 40’s stuff with a non dropped axle and all.[singlepic=2800]
The car uses and understated flathead with dual carbs and some unique touches. I like it a lot.[singlepic=2802]
Interior shot showing LZ wheel and patina upholstery. Wide pleats are in.[singlepic=2809]
Front axle is stock height with friction shocks and links.[singlepic=2803]
Note really raked windshield. This adds to the sleek top profile.[singlepic=2806]
Side profile looks nice and racy. Color is a light shade of green with a black frame. Tom will need to cut a hole in the top to fit in the car. He will also have to let me have it because he is too tall. Ha![singlepic=2807]
Nice sedan body on epay. Looks perfect for chopping…not super good or bad.
I don’t often like 27’s but this one caught my eye. My friend Bob is building one of these in his dreams.[singlepic=2805]
Front view showing track nose and stance. Very nice in British Racing Green.
