My 40 sedan again



It's a work-in-progress. It has been for 30+ years.
Mustang II ifs ,1954 235 engine,1969 Camaro three speed trans, and 10 bolt rear with 3.08:1 gears. It ain't much , but it's good enough considering who it's for.
After the pics were taken I fixed the sagging tailpipe, installed the running boards, and put a tag on it.

1940 two door sedan

Here's my pride, my '39 sedan. 350/350, Mustang II, Nova rear, 3.36 gears, A/C, PS, PW. Cadillac buckets, leather interior. Love this car, and I drive it whenever I get a chance.


Here's my '41 that I'll probably sell. 327/350, Camaro front clip and rear end. Right now it needs interior and I'm going to paint it as I've found some problems since this picture was taken.


And finaly my '38. I was originally going to street rod this, but then I found my '39 already done, so now I will eventually restore this back to stock. It's a complete running original car, including the original engine, just needs to be restored.

Had to post this pic just because I love it! Took this a couple weeks ago at a park near Lowell, Mi. The repainted front fenders & hood and detailing of all the chrome and ss was sure worth the time and money.

Let me try this again, First post so I hope I am doing this correctly. Here are some images of my 1940 Chevy Business Coupe that I have had for about a year. She is pretty much as I bought her and is fairly stock.with the addition of a 1953 235 Blue Flame engine. She still has the original three on the tree, torque tube and rear end. She drives like a 73 year old car with the original suspension that I need to do something about. I am on the fence as to just rebuild it with new parts or but a new front clip under her but something has to be done as she is a handful driving down the road.

Just brought a new one home. It's not metal but it's still a Chevy. 1934 Downs Vicky body. Black cherry with beige leather interior. Some features are a little dated but I have plans to update. 350 ZZ4 crate engine for power.

That is my 37 Slant Back. I've been told she is rare because there is no trunk. I am restoring her to stock.



I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you ...

32 Confederate Coach project.





Chassis is done and running; we still need some wood pieces for the body, then paint and an interior. I am guessing we have another year of work before we are done (our goal is to have the car ready for the Spring 2016 VCCA Area 9 meet in Charleston, SC).

Every thing back from the firewall is Australian, except running boards and rear guards.

Built on a sedan floor pan.

Here is my dad and his '41 two door sedan. It runs a 350/700R4, a 10 bolt posi and a 1st gen. Camaro front end. It's a nice runner. We make the 4 hour trip to the Goodguys show in Columbus, OH in style.
