Model T truck frame and cowl, $30.00... I would have given that much for the hand brake lever... This wants to be a 1920's style Speedster, with a modern four-banger.... When and if..


Got the Bondo Bucket over to Jason's and am waiting for somebody to come pick up the '47 Ford seat.

Now to attack one of the other projects.

Finally got the Opel Calipers back. It took three separate tries to get the right parts, and it took Paul two or three weeks to get them apart.

What he had to do was to thread a grease fitting into the brake line hole and pump grease into the cylinder until the piston came out.. He charged me $10.00 just for the grease. ;-)


The other picture is of the Frankenwagen's glove box.. That Chevy "push button and scrabble" idea is pretty lame, and this chicken rail from the Toyota almost looks like it fits.. . Color is close too..

I must have my clumsy glasses on today, but at least the tool box wont fall through the floor any more.. this side is, if not water tight, at least able to hold tennis balls, maybe even golf balls.. This is progress...?....

I used a part of the 47 bed to replace some of the rotted off body mount... Eventually i will get under there and run angle iron all the way across.


I needed to pull the body, but i had no way of doing that. I hope to make all my mistakes on this one, so one of the later projects will be almost up to Rat Rod standards..

After six months, the motor is in and almost all hooked up... hope to get it home next week.


I also found a donor for a 300 ci for the '47. it's a '68 pickup. Has nice wheels anyway.

I tried to play nice until i ran into a layer of .38 caliber rat droppings, and then decided that this wasn't dirt, this was geology.


Pine-sol and a hose and we find out that this truck used to be bluegreen. If i ever get it back good enough to hold paint, it might be a good color.

This is probably the only original metal on the truck.
