Hello All,

When the site broke a while back I eventually had to relocate my journal. Now my progress can be seen at:
April May's 1937 Chevrolet

I have been reading the recent posts and I have been well intertained. A lot of good info out there. I'm glad to see there are 37 Chevy projects. I hope to post a history of my 37 but as I said in my intro it's a real frankenstein. It is really a hot rod with part off just about every make out there. It works great so far. Carman60 do you have issues with starting? If you did or do what are you doing to it? Have any of you put large tires in the rear without narrowing the frame? My car is all steel and I want to keep it that way. No plastic fenders. Again thanks for all the good info.

I just bought a '38 coupe and posted a question about rear axle replacement in the proper forum. I didn't see this thread until now and don't have time to read all 13 pages. I'll get around to that later. I don't have the car here. I will be leaving for TN Sunday to bring the car home...

Well, I just finished reading all 13 pages. Added some of the links to wipers and such to my favorites for later referral. I haven't seen my car in person yet and am am hoping the seller is honest in that it doesn't need any body panels. We shall see.

Well, the car I "bought" was in worse condition than was represented in pics or words. I didn't feel it was worth the price and didn't want another major project so I left it there. 2100 miles and $800 in costs and, so far, he hasn't returned my deposit, as he claimed he would. That's another $500, so I have $1300 invested in nothing...

I just talked to Pay Pal about my deposit and they pulled it back out of his account until he responds. Maybe I'll get it back yet..

Already working on another '38 in IA. It is a project with no engine/trans, but has a Camaro rear axle and MII front end. He will be sending pics this week. Like many of us, it is buried between 4 other cars he has waiting for "someday"...

There is a decent '39 about 75 miles from me but they don't hold the same appeal as the '37/38. Complete driving street rod for 17k, so it's tempting...

I followed you journal and am quite impresses. I have a 37 convert. I notices your comment about tha SLC autorama. Did you have to go far to get there or do you live in the area? because I live in Murray. Do you get to any of the cruise nites? If so I'd really like to see your car and get some tips. Did you fabricate all those parts or where did they come from?

1937 chevrolet convertible? Wow, now thats a car to have and build! Not many of them were produced. Does it have a trunk or rumble seat? I'd like to see it for sure. I live in Sandy, we must be 5 miles apart. I built the car myself and could probably give you some free advice (fwiw). Drop me an email at jhanmiller@comcast.net and perhaps we can get together. Coming to a quick end for this seasons car shows.

OK, I THINK I have a car this time ... I drove 8 hours round trip to see a "driver" in central IA Monday. I made an offer and he turned it down. He called last night to accept the offer and I went to the bank today to secure the cash. I should have it here early next week.
1938 Master Deluxe but most of the "deluxe" trim is missing. He built the car from a yard find and the whole chassis is Chassis Engineering parts...MII wide tubular control arms with manual R&P and disc brakes. TH 350 trans and CE mount with a 2000 stall converter. Motor was built as a blower with 8.5 compression but he took the blower off to sell. It now has a single quad tunnel ram intake. He converted an '80 Malibu rear axle to leaf springs on all Chassis Engineering rear spring conversion and that will most likely be the first thing to get exchanged for a GM 8.5 10 bolt with a posi. All new dark tinted glass and weather stripping, tilt column and 5 gauge package with dash mounted tach. The body needs a lot of massaging to get it ready for paint but all the parts on this car are worth the 11k price. I feel I basically got the body for a couple grand. I can afford to get it in paint and still be well under 20k...

The car is now parked in my shop and I transfered the title right away yesterday...

I stopped by Yogi's on my way home and bought 2 polished stainless bumpers and the brackets but the brackets were out of stock. They should be here early next week. I also bought the patch panels to repair the small amount of rust on the car ie; door bottoms and lower quarters. I also bought a new rear tail panel as the replacement one on there now wasn't done well and I'd rather start from scratch than reshape a poorly installed panel.

Not crazy about the frenched headlights either and am looking at going back to flush mount with integral turn signals. I will to pull one apart today and see what I need to do that conversion. It has LED tail lights, electric wipers, all new smoked glass, tilt column, and aluminum radiator.

OK, I talked to Chevs of the 40's and they don't have a 7" flush mount conversion for the 37/38 buckets.. I'm now looking at replacing all the original internals and using 12v bulbs. Does anyone have good pics of what is supposed to be inside the bucket and how it attaches.? I will need everything as the PO welded in 3 small tabs for the french conversion.

thanks for any help....
