I had several appointments today to look at cars. My wife was willing to go with me and do the driving. After a quick breakfast we headed to my first appointment. A fellow has a 40 coupe in prime and ready for paint but would like to sell it due to the current times. The other appointment is to look at a 36 one owner sedan which is close to home. All in all I had a great day, wasted a lot of time and developed a blog for today. Here are some photos of today’s finds.
The first 40 was all apart and had been primered ready for blocking and painting. Several parts were missing but a lot of good parts with a rock solid body and fenders. New floors and firewall could affect value but many people prefer this look. Excellent metal work!
Fatman front suspension and new crate motor have been installed so far. Note firewall has been smoothed and set back.
The 36 sedan was complete and probably would run with a little persuasion. This is a one owner, same family car since new.
Why can’t I find one like this. Maybe he is bringing the car to me or Steve. Red wheels look good on the Folkstone gray coupe.
George is a driver. While he is now headed to Canada, he was in Colorado last year at this time.
I can no longer perform these engine changes in my garage with the door open.
This is the view of Pewsplace today. Garage doors are always closed. (Well most of the time)
My friend Larry has a nice set of original 57 Corvette dual carbs for sale. Let me know if you have an interest.
I have not talked about QC’s for a long time but this is a nice set up for a model A. Note late side bells and P&J mounts.
This is the very first hiboy 34 roadster to cross my path and I have never forgotten the car. Dick drove it to the LARS a couple of years ago. One of the best around in my book.
