My early years with GM were spent in Detroit where I met lots of Hot Rod enthusiasts who shared my interests in 32 Fords. One particular fellow, Larry had a really super 3 window he owned for quite a few years. Larry and I became good friends and we worked on our 3 windows together. Over the years we kept in touch and he built a variety of Deuces. He always keep his cars and his son David and he are completing a very nice sedan. I think he has owned the car for over 20 years and it is finally almost completed. I on the other hand have bought and sold 30 Deuces in that same period and wish I had kept all of them. I received some pictures of the sedan and promised to show you the finished product when completed.
As I have stated many times before, the friends you meet while working on Hot Rods are usually ones that remain friends for a life time. Long distance calls, visits and trips together are what makes this hobby so enjoyable for me and my wife. Thanks Larry, Charlotte and David for the memories.
Have a great weekend.
Larry’s garage behind his big garage. He calls this his shed.[singlepic=1919]
Larry hiding with the always present hat. He works everyday on the cars in his collection. Note the Lobeck frame with SB drilled axle and SO-CAL front brakes. The car also has a Winter’s QC. Larry had to make a whole new floor to clear the QC.[singlepic=1920]
Larry built motor for this sedan and it should be a good strong runner. Note Olds valve covers.[singlepic=1921]
The Moon tank is one of my early trade marks. I purchased a 5 window coupe with a SBC and front mounted Moon tank like Harry Luzader’s famous racer.[singlepic=1922]
David and Larry love the Tri-C tilt column and have them in all of their cars. Nice thin column. The wiring is not finished and will be neat as a pin when completed.[singlepic=1923]
Hook up is simple to the Vega steering on the Lobeck frame.
Larry is wanting a 5 window to add to his collection. Maybe Brookfield will make of these in the future. I like 5 windows too.
