Dakota Chief update

Fixing hidden old repairs/damage
Always takes longer then planned
Keep working on it

here's the coupe for y'all who forgot what it looks like..
ass down, nose up. (will look gasser-ish when done)

1932 Ford

I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black

Robert, Tudor is done

Over 3 1/2 years ago I sold him my 1929 Tudor on a swept front chassis.
283 I bought from Vern. Really nice original 1940 Ford wheels.

Here it is !  No chop No Channel, great job finishing the Tudor bud !

El Roberto rear axle

Chris, this is the new 9" we use for the truck chassis

axle on top, we designed it that way
the split wishbone brackets are photo shopped and way bigger then what we use.
glad to build one for you. Started to get backed up in production.. Let's finalize that order

Jeff's T coupe, update

Little picture study of chopping down a Model A grill shell

Keep in mind he has a Model T and has channeled the body over the frame
(so most wouldn't be as short)

Gonna watch some Nascar and bbq up a nice lunch
Then maybe work on my own 1929 sedan..

Here's a cool picture to look at

7up truck update

Tires and wheels on Paul's truck.
Little VW fronts and taller and not too wide rears.
Good alternative to the expensive repop type tires.

Bud's "Speedy T"

Bud has some great early Fords
Now he is building one without the restrictions in design like a resto project has
Sweet built Model A banger with a Winfield head
A 1926-7 cowl, and the rest is his own design

The frame we did as a design study, and I traded it to him awhile ago.
It's really looking good. Body is getting tuned up now.
Should see it out and about next year.

chassis all painted and plumbed

cool roadster / race car look to it

early turtle deck pieces keep the Ford look alive in the body design

I can see this slinging dirt at the drags here in Colorado
