My Dad is 82 and has been building this 27 t roadster pu for the last year  a half .He has done everything on this own including body and paint.engine tranny work all done by him. No one but him or I has worked on this car.A great accomplishment for guy his age.

 

it is a 27 model t roadster pick up with a 40 flathead 60 horsepower v8 ,3 speed tranny ,39 ford rear end with juice brakes and a 40 front axle with juice brakes.

Gosh, wish I was retired and I could play with my toys all day.

Yeah My Dad is a great inspiration to me.Alway's there when I am building, whether it is car's or my house.It is a great car 

He now wants to chop 2 inches out of the windshield and the top.

Nothing has been bought new for this car. Everything has been picked up at a flea market in Ontario.He doesn't get around to to many swap meet's now, as his hip's and leg's bother him to much. So now I get the list's of what he need's and try to find the part's.

You're only as old as you feel and just because you're a certain age.. don't mean you have to stop doing what you love. I'm sure he's an inspriation to us all here. Thanks very much for sharing your Dad's project! Any more pictures?

Joe, your'e dad and an old friend of mine would make a great pair!!
He's turning 86, still a vendor at barrie, and everyday he's all over the area looking for old stuff to buy, he finds some pretty neat stuff.
He has a 32 ford roadster, and a 1913 "T" he restored himself, except for the paint.
If your'e dad needs any parts he may have something.
He has quite a large collection of stuff, stored in a barn, and his garage at his house is almost a disaster , it is SO FULL of stuff.
