    My '34 Project

    Hi!
    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":



    Engine same:



    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.











    Home made fan shroud with fans from a 2000 model German Ford Galaxie:


    Home made Duval windscreen:






    Fenders are very easy to remove...

    Hi!
    I'm aware of that. I will c-ing the chassis very discrete later. First the authorites will inspect the chassis before I put the body on. Now the body is only test fitted.

    The Gearbox is from a 95 Chevy Camaro LT-1.
    First and second gen Chevy small blocks have the same bellhousing bolt pattern and spline shaft. And since I have a one piece rear main seal firstgen bock (later than 87), the bolt pattern on the flywheel is the same too.
    Earlier small blocks have to use a special flywheel to make a LT-1 clutch/transmission fit.

    Some updates:

    Front window in place. Laminated of course. Custom made. App 85 £ a pair.



    Glue:


    Home made spinners made from some leftover stainless & aluminium parts:





    Easy removable front fenders:







    SuperTrapp exhaust ends:



    And by the way: The authorities visited me in my garage a week ago to inspect the project. Gave thumbs up!

    Lately (after I made the Jag rear diff not to leak - see another thread about that!) I've been struggling to make a workable and sturdy hand brake mechanism. Made it to work properly last night, but haven't any photos yet.

    Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.

    I sell chains for a living. Both snow chains and running meters.

    I have no technical education, so what I do, any ordinar bloke can do. If he or she has the interest, patience & a place to do it.
