Rain and more rain in Southern California. We need it so I am not complaining. The roof is leaking and I can’t find the leak so the weekend was for buckets and towels. I love the rain.
I have received some nice photos of a super 40 pickup and 39 convert for your viewing, Craig in Downey made a SD rear bumper from 2 front bumpers. If I don’t find one I will try the same thing. His looks great as does his pickup. The 39 is Nicks and was just completed. I am a sucker for this type of restoration. I have seen many of Nicks cars over the years and they are always perfect.
On a different subject I have found a 40 convertible that may come available soon. I will keep you informed. Have a great week and get something done on the Hot Rod…
How could you not like this 40 pickup. The bumper is hand made from two fronts and using a real SD bumper as a pattern. Nice work Craig. The 49 Chevy bumper guard looks correct to me.[singlepic=3624]
Here a better view of the mock up bumper. Note how flat it is in the middle. I want one.[singlepic=3625]
The finished product is beautiful. This truck is almost completed and I can’t wait to see it.[singlepic=3626]
The chop in process. Note back window treatment and the step down to preserve the height…nice.[singlepic=3627]
Nicks’s 39 Mercury in basic black. Rare bird in this form. I love it.[singlepic=3628]
Beautiful grille with excellent fit to the fenders.[singlepic=3629]
Deep red interior and contrasting dash set this one apart from all the rest.[singlepic=3630]
This is the surprise. A Mercury V8 (Chevy) that is done in my style. Bob would really like this one.
This is not the one but similar to the one I found over the weekend. Trip tomorrow or Wednesday depending on rain. Black plate, LA history and has not run in 50 years.
