The following thread are photos from the build of my '34 Ford Roadster. For me it has always been an important issute to do all myself. The include interior and paint.
Because of that the car will of course not be as perfect as many other hot rods, but finding out Things and Learning Things is what makes the car hobby insteresting and challenging for me.
The build started in 2001. I got it approved for public road use in august 2013. Further build and improvemetes will be combined with using the car.
From the beginning:
Jag rear "fresh from the mud":
Jaguar brake calipers before I overhauled them:
Jaguar rear After some cleaning & stuff:
I had to split the doors:
Same calipers as above after some work. New rubber seals & pistons too.
Same engine after some work. Actually the engine looked a loot worse than it turned out to be. L05 Chevy small block 1. gen '93 model one piece rear main seal, 2 bolt block. Only 138000km/86000 miiles. From a Buick Roadmaster "US Governement car". Strengthen it up a bit with ARP main bolts, TBI swapped for an Airgap intake w/ Pertronic distributor. Carb is on my shelf, a QFT 650 cft, dobbelpumper with annular booster.
T56 manual 6 speed from a '94 Camaro LT1. Rewarder semi length headers slightly rebuilt to fit, ministarter, aluminium waterpump, 103 amp alternator from Chevy Astro mounted on a home made bracket.

Fenders are very easy to remove...
