10-06-2013 12:01 PM Nose Finally Taking Shape
Wow - What a challenge. The nose on the '37 would not line up. To get good lines it required the Hood to be lengthen about an inch, and the side panels to be lengthen. The Grill was good and the fenders aligned with the Running boards and the rear fenders, so all looks correct.

Hope to have all the body work done within a week -

Thanks to Bill Oswald - for the patients to get it right!

11-22-2012 08:40 AM Back to the Paint Shop
The '37 is now back at the Paint Shop, Bill Oswald, of Bill's Custom Cars will smooth and paint with a two tone Black and Silver -

Shots of the custom dash

Seats are out of a Toyota Celica - They will be recovered in Leather once paint is finished

The Motor / Tranny Installation along with the smoothed firewall - Motor is a 408 CI Windsor, Comp Roller Cam, Alum Heads, Stainless Valves, Eagle 4340 Crank with Forged H Beam Rods and Forged Pistons connected to a C6 with a 2800 Stall Converter. Should be enough power to break the tires loose.

As you saw in a previous posting, I had James Kotan do an art graphic of the car, that showed the progression from the 1962 Gas Station - to the new '37 Coupe.

Tamara Morrison Graphic Designer took James artwork, and created a great T-Shirt. The arrived just in time to wear to Macungie this weekend.
