    Ok, now time for something a little different. Whatcha think?

     



    Recently I acquired this mostly complete build....It's a 1928 Ford "streamliner". 28' chassis, 39 juicer brakes, 36 flathead v8 (sounds awesome but 1936 power vs. any modern hot rod take a little getting used to). I love this thing!

    Gotta love the riveted panels and the well done wood spars inside plus the high rear light than could be a 3rd brake light (if it's not already). It oozes cool!

    Wowzer Zowzer!

    This is beyond cool - looks like it could be from Mad Max or Buck Rogers. Very unique and I'll bet it would stop traffic (if you could get it license for the street). I know it's tacky to ask (and I'll completely understand if you tell me to MYOB) - but how much did you have to part with for this little guy?

    9k. Found it in FB marketplace a couple of months ago...Receipts and documentation for everything....very detailed. The guy was moving to AZ from Oregon and was one of those "everything must go" sales. Perfect timing!

    I think it a reasonable investment.

    Huge cool points. Needs to get street legal and hit the cruise.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    That is very cool! I'm sure what you have into it couldn't even build the body on it today! Very nice find.

    Oh yeah - polish that bad boy up and get it licensed for the street - what a show stopper that would be.

    I always say I won't, but I eventually polish stuff. I am doing my best to hold out for now.

    Unfortunately, no. The Kurbside is a shorty, so it's only an 8 ft box.
