SS hairpins. 40 Ford brakes and wheelsNice dry WA state touring body. Deuce grill shellLink to slide show of 75 pics: http://s1093. photobucket. com/user/truckdude1/slideshow/The%20T%20Tub I hate to sell my dream project. but a move forces the sale. This is a nice 1927 Ford touring body from Washington State. it comes with a clean WA title and a 1927 vintage WA plate. Cut down windshield with a sticker showing the car was at Bonneville. The VIN was issued by the state. The body sits on a Model A frame that has been reworked for the 8BA flathead. the '53 Merc OD trans and a '32 Ford rear that has been reworked for an open driveline. The front end has a dropped axle. stainless wishbones. Speedway spring and shackles. Steering is via a '50's VW bus box with a Limeworks repo '40 Ford wheel. '40 Ford brakes all around. all in good shape. Repo '32 grill shell and a reworked '37 Ford radiator (about $800 of pro radiator shop work). Guide headlamps on Speedway SS mounts. '40 Ford wheels and nice bias ply tires. Hubcaps could use some resto but appear to be vintage Ford. Engine is a rebuilt and machined 8BA Flathead. I don't know the exact internal work done. bought it from a friend who runs a hot rod shop. He gave me some machine shop receipts for over $1000 and assured me it was ready to fire and I trust his flathead work. Offy heads and intake. Comes with two Holley 94 carbs in good shape. Engine has a new wide belt conversion. Beautiful Geardrive Torque Tube Headers made for me by Matt there and they have his handbuilt baffles. Engine is all painted and clean. Starter and Generator professionally rebuilt and converted to 12 volt. Trans is a '53 Merc OD unit. These are pretty cool. it will give you 5 speeds including a highway gear. This appears to be a vintage Ansen 3 speed shifter. I restored it and made a thick steel mount for it that also holds the parking brake and the OD engagement cable. The '32 rear end has been professionally converted to open drive. no more torque tube. Everything is cleaned and painted. wood has many coats of spar varnish. I used almost all stainless hardware. My plan was to get the car running. drive it in the current jalopy status with Mexican blanket seats and then take it to the next level with paint and upholstery. So what does it need to get it running and driving?Engine: Needs the dizzy installed. it comes with one but I was going to upgrade. Oiling system needs mounting and plumbing. Radiator hoses needed. Chassis: Needs the brakes plumbed and adjusted. Rear Speedway reverse eye spring is too low. either needs a standard spring or the eyes reversed back to stock. I'll throw in stock A and T springs as well. Body mounts done but loose right now. There is a lower firewall that I made from heavy steel plate. it was AWOL for the pics. Shift rod and and brake and clutch rods need to be fabbed. I'm including a bunch of stainless rod in various sizes and bunch of new Heim joints. Front floorboards and a trans tunnel need to be made. I'll include the same Maple plywood used for the rear floors and fold up seat bottoms. '33 Ford brake and clutch pedal needs a $35 rebuild kit and a mount fabbed. Electric: Battery mounted. new hot rod wiring harness included. New starter solenoid and voltage regulator. All this mounts under the front seat. You can get repop wiring harnesses for the OD trans. Fuel system: Holley 94 carbs reportedly rebuilt. I would redo them. Linkage needed. New Speedway problem solver spoon pedal included. Fuel pump and regulator included. Cowl tank is clean inside. I planned to coat it. Outside painted. Dash: some metal working needed to the nice original T touring dash. It comes with a new set of 6 gauges that look vintage. If you don't want the gauges. a friend does and will buy them from you. Interior: Not much. just cut up the included Mexican blankets and cover the included foam. New white with chrome buckle seatbelts for all four seats. New rear door latches. So a couple of weekends of work. and you could have a blast of a hot rod to drive. Think of how much fun this will be cruising around with a carload of friends. I'm sure I'm forgetting lots of details. please feel free to ask questions. IShipping is your responsibility but I will assist with the loading. All of the spare parts fit under the tonneau cover. This will be a great deal on a cool car. get it ready for Spring and Summer fun!
