Christmas was fantastic, the kids came home, we enjoyed their stay and now it is time to go back to work on the projects for 2008. I hope all of you enjoyed the holiday and are starting your diets immediately. I know I am.
I am hooked on 1940 Fords, so when I received some photos of my friend Tom’s newly constructed coupe I thought I would share them with you. Tom is a prolific builder and has built many cars including an AMBR called the Deucari. Tom’s collection includes Roadsters, Phaetons, Woodies, Coupes and Pickups. I have followed this build for several years, but now that it is almost complete I am amazed at the quality of the build.
I also ran over to Bob’s and took some pictures of my old coupe that he is putting together. 1940 Ford coupes are certainly one of my favorites. I am also partial to sedan deliveries.
Tom’s very nice 40 Ford coupe, black with red wheels, very straight and perfect gaps.[singlepic=663]
Interior detail showing Dynamat, AC and correct dash colors.[singlepic=667]
Undercarriage is typical Tom. He is a fanatic about the finish on the underside of his cars. Note contrast between frame and floor.[singlepic=664]
Here is my old coupe at Bob’s house. He has stopped working on it to work on his roadster. The coupe chassis is completed with Heidts, 9 inch, AC, 350/4-speed, etc.[singlepic=665]
Rear showing showing completed metal work and perfect gaps. Note shortened bumper irons.
Nice 41 delivery I found on the Net. I think this might be a Sam Foose built car for the nineties or a copy.
