My project

Here's a picture of my new project. It's a 4 door 1937 Chevrolet that I intend to make a daily driver for my wife.

that thing is great

I'm glad to here you are building a car to drive every day


as for your questions about what rear end would be best to use
I am making a link to your rear end question thread , so it will be easy to find for other 37 owners, if they have the same question

I wanted to ask a couple of questions/clarify some stuff, and maybe get some tips before I started

so I started a thread in the exterior body section to see if I could get some help and/or was missing something important

Hey, thanks! I saw your car in the movie and that was when my wife and I were looking for one. When I saw it (assuming it's the same one, I'm sure one of them was) I said, "Hey, there's a 37 4 door!" I later saw it for sale on the internet and thought how cool it would be to have it. Awesome car. Hope you have lots of fun with it.

I was on set of The Dukes of Hazzard movie in 2005 and saw how movie cars get treated, so I'm glad yours made it through.

Brandon

hi Brandon. tough indeed. it seems they bought 4 to bring to England, but only 2 survived. the other survivor was last seen in Stuttgart. am planning to have fun, but won't be a daily driver (too wet most of the time here...) may take it down the strip too, just to see what we can do

have a good time with your's. cheers. chris

Yeah, you too! Is yours the one with the parking brake handle rigged up to lock the rear brakes and do stunts?

yea, it was... put in a cable parking brake now though (legal requirement for the street here). and put back in two exhaust pipes as the motor was being strangled by one inch and a half pipe some other bits and pieces to make it more 'driveable'. if you like will get you some pics when done?

That's awesome about the car. It's cool to know which one it is when you see it on screen. I really, really wanted this old Charger that I found on the Dukes movie set. It was completely ragged out, but there was something really endearing about it. They smashed the side with a forklift so it would match the others. I really wanted it but couldn't get it due to price, and they weren't selling them then due to potential sequels.

I can't get any pictures of ours right now because it's stored in a barn. I have to finish putting the rear main seal and transmission back in my daily driver '57 Chevy and then I'll have room to bring it over to my house and start tearing it apart. I plan to start a build thread. I've always seen others have them for so many years it will be neat to finally have my own, even if in the grand scheme of things it isn't that special as far as original fabrication goes.
