AV8 Project, part II

That was a really thrilling moment, I bought an engine on ebay which had stand in an shop for years, I brought it home Aaaand it purred like a cat! Ronnie did a facelift on it and installed the Lincoln dist that he sold me and my edelbrock regular intake. That’s will be good enough for this summer!

 Finally the chassie is rolling!! Really satisfied, it was 5 whole days left to the time travel meet! J

Time to continue the AV8 presentation!

The time for post pics and information about the growing AV8 did not exist the last weeks before the time travel meet, like the daily work, sleeping and everything else outside the garage!
But here comes an presentation of the last weeks before. Better late than never as we say in our elongated country sweden! :)
I got the chassie parts from powdercoating not even 3 weeks before the meet. But now we come to the fun part, to put everything in place!
Reaming the spindles, installing new bushes and put things together… I am lucky to be in my brothers garage which is like a hotrod speedshop, tools, help and parts...


More comes in a few days!

One more lost -32 Roadster found

One more lost -32 Roadster found
When I was to the U.S. in 2008. I created contacts with very good and nice people. Some of them I have re vent to a number of times . This body I found the above in an attic in an old car repair shop. I looked up the side panels covered in an old paint box . I asked the owner if it was for sale but only got a great smile and a heavy no for an answer . Every time I have been to him and all the times I talked to him on the phone , I asked on -32 Roadster and received the same answer. Until a dark autumn day in November 2012. Then I called honnom heading to Buddy Martin in Gothenburg. The same issue as 100 time before. Is the Roadster for sale ? And this time the answer was YES . 5 months later, I and my wife and dug it after been set aside for decades. We drove it inside our rental car from NE to LA . And now it home and test the assembled. The body is in very good. It has Never been damaged or repaired. It's like they say they are still out there or inside ! Keep your eyes open! Better to have that desire. Comes right time. DO IT. You never know if it shows up again.

A very good friend has these two old customs standing in a barn. Apparently have they been there a long time and will continue to do so. Too bad that such historic cars just standing. Hopefully they'll see the sun light in the near future. The time will tell. See the enjoy of two Original Carson top CUSTOMS.
