    1929 Ford coupe (5 window chop top) for sale or trade

     



    Well, I'm pretty reluctant to do this and know I’ll regret it, but I may just be too tall for this thing. I hoped that once I got the floorboards in I'd fit, but I'm a bit too close for comfort and can't go much lower on the seats without having my hamstring start twinging in pain. I figured I'd dangle it out there and see if anybody had something similar that I might fit in. I have all receipts for this car...even a cost tracking spreadsheet. (I know that's gay, but I'm a tight-wad). Hell- I even have a CD of all the build pictures.

    I would prefer to find something in similar condition or maybe something worth a bit less and more complete. Want Pre-1935 ford maybe another coupe with a little less chop. Prefer to sell without the motor and tranny but will include the motor and tranny if there is a good deal to be had. I am somewhat open to offers of other interesting types of cars, but the big ass boats of the 50's and 60's don't excite me too much, unless they are real nice customs, or are speed maniacs. I would be open to entertaining the idea of an upward trade with cash as long as it isn't rediculous. Also consider a smaller trade if cash is involved to make up the difference. Anyway, here's the shpeal.....


    Body and Chassis:
    1929 Ford 5-window coupe (extremely solid)
    Ladder bar suspension w/ panhard bar

    no title yet


    Chevy 350 motor (all parts are brand new, never been fired)
    1974 4-bolt main block
    bored 10 over (355ci)

    Tranny:
    TH 350 automatic
    Finned aluminum tranny pan
    Gennie Shifter

    This would be an easy project for somebody to finish up. Needs top dash rail, rear deck lid, glass and garnish mouldings. Interior is also needed of course. Then a bit of body work. I have lots of pictures. It's all been done right.
    I've got $9K in the body and chassis. $4K in the motor and $400 in the tranny. Send your questions, offers, picture requests, etc. to hotrodderguy@yahoo.com Thanks.

    **may consider selling if nothing comes up
