Is it yours? If not sorry to hi-jack the thread with my reply. It's related though.
I used to have one back in the 70's (1935 series 1) and was part way through the build when I had to move it cos the garage owner where I was building it in wanted his garage back to make way for a housing development. I found a "friend" who let me store it in his small garage. (no room to work) until I was able to find a place of my own. I was unemployed at the time. Anyway, when I went to collect it about 3 months later I found he had scrapped it because he thought I no longer wanted it! He never thought to ask. :****er: To say I was gutted is an understatement more like devastated which put paid to any thoughts of rodding at that time. It's taken me all this time in recovery () to get over it. That and bringing up 3 kids and a mortgage.
About 3 years ago heard about a local meet of hot rods and went. Since then the bug bit and I am back on track. I want a 34 Ford sedan delivery but again lack of funds mean I can't have one unless them balls fall right. In the mean time I've just bought and begun to rod a 1935 Austin 10 Lichfield. Going to have rover power and retain the 4/5 seats and MGB rear axle and uprated original front beam axle with jag hubs and discs.. Not much rust on mine really.
The previous owner had 'restored' the body supposedly about 10 years ago. Stripping the paint revealed bodge after bodge so out withe the grinder and I've nearly finished replacing the rusting body parts that need replacing. Rust converter will have to do for the parts/areas I can't get too whether they need it or not. Anyway enough of mine. let see more of this build.
