Anyone know this car...London?
Permalink  
 


A guy from Montreal is thinking about buying this...says its in the London area, I believe...Anyone know it

I copied this from another forum I am on

 

Hi Guys,

Second time starting new thread as I search for a hotrod project. Need your opinions please. I have been reading this forum to educate myself on hot rodding and t-buckets. My only experience working on cars is with 64-73 Mopars. I am currently working on a 64 Plymouth that I feel is more of a hot rod than I guess a traditional muscle car build and I am having a blast. I don't have to worry about the Mopar purists rules and unwarranted comments. I find it quite liberating and free to build what I like. It has been awesome and most of Mopar guys love the build and help me out which is great. 

Thus....my interest is turning to maybe dipping my toe into a hot rod project. I am hoping find one that is mostly built, someone else's money in it, and I can start and learn on BUT I can get out of with as little damage to my pocket book in the case I get in over my head ( been there, done that, bought several t- shirts.).

This time I found a mostly done t-bucket and thought it might be a good candidate to work on as I learn. I found one at a good price ( by Canadian standards anyway) but it is a 14 hour round trip for me so I can't see it but will try to have a local check it out for me. So I was wondering if you experienced guys could have a look at the details I have on the car and these pictures and give me your opinions if you think it is a good buy or a good start. Lot of things I would like to change but driving car while I can make changes. 

Here is some stuff I can tell you about the car. 1923 t- bucket. It is a fiberglass body ,new square tube frame . The front rad shell and windshield is original or that is what alot of people have told me. Also it has the original ownership with the 1923 vin # is suppose to be very valuable , The rock bottom cash deal this week will be $7600. The appraisal that was done in May 2014 has it at $11,000. The frame was made in a welding shop in London ,Ont .the rear diff is a 8.8 ford mustang (posi) rebuilt ,the engine I was told was rebuilt by an older guy that had worked for Ford, retired and started to build the car . So the engine is a older 302 and has a C6 automatic tran's that had been rebuilt also .The front end is a mustang 2 that has been set up with disc brakes, all new .front and rear bolt pattern is 5x4.5 ,rear brakes has everything new and it's drum on the rear . new alum rad . It has a alum fuel cell in the rear with elec fuel pump . The headers are new patriot with small inserts in the chrome pipes 3inch . New chrome engine oil pan , trans pan and rear diff cover . The valve covers and air breather are older chrome . New alum water pump all the wiring is new ,lights are new . Tilt steering and it has weldwood master cly for the brakes . Rear tires are mickey thompson 33x21.5x15 on weld racing wheel 15x17 ,front are also mickey on americian racing wheels . No power steering.

Thoughts or comments at $7600?

Here are the all the pics I have... Thanks and cheers! John

Changes are needed, but that's what the new owner can do after opening gifts and eating turkey! LOL!

A good example of "because you can it doesn't mean you should"
Also a good example of what a MII front end looks like on a open wheeled car.

Sorry guys JUST MY OPINION

Could this be the high school project car that was sold and finished by the new owner? I had only heard the rumours and not the pictures- not sure if this is that car or not.

This car is quite possibly the most ill proportioned, misfitted hot rod ever built. He would do better and the world a favour by parting it out. I always try to find the positive in any car, but not here. You may ask...'do I have an opinion'.......YES!

lower the rad shell a bit , change the tail lights , drive the wheels offa it and change things to your liking as time passes . it,s the basics of hot rodding ..77.
