Built Merc flathead, hydraulic brake conversion, chopped windshield frame. You don't get any more authentic than this. NOT a rat-rod, but a period-perfect hot-rod, in progress, daily driver.

I love vintage hot rods and they don't get much better than a '32 hi-boy.

That's beautiful, man, it just looks soooooooooooooooo ready to drive! That is if the box of parts in the passenger floor aren't needed!

This car gets used a lot, and has made several long trips (hundreds of miles each way) with no issues...in HOT weather. It was built almost entirely by the owner, a guy in his 40s (on the far right in the second picture). B)

Looks like Offenhauser heads lurking under the hood.

Wishbones, friction shocks and a banjo steering wheel. It doesn't get more old school than that. Very nice.

Thanks Bill for posting these time capsules.

Is the leather strap inside the driver's door something added, or was it really there?

Good stuff!

Michael
