27 t
« on: December 24, 2010 1:16 AM »
so here is the next project.  it was just a body (27 t coupe )   no doors    no trunk   no grille   pretty much just a shell.  i picked it up in october. since then i built a frame  put it on wheels. solid front axle. trianglulated (wow big word) rear with coilovers. handmade trunk.  in  the process of making doors. one is on and functional.  it will be a roadster with a removeable roof when finished.   its lookin like it will be powered by a 406 chev because its there and almost ready to run. pardon the pic  the garage is a little dark.

yes it will be a roadster.  eventually i am going to make a removable roof for it. i have never owned an open car before so thought i would give it a try.

Wow.... you have come a long ways. I'm curious about the doors. Did you make them from some other doors or from scratch?

made the doors from scratch. model T's are much cooler with suicide doors.

I have never been a fan of suicide doors, but the `33-34 Ford 3  and 5 window coupes are one of my favorite cars. What's up with that???

Sorry, what I meant is why do I like a car with suicide doors, but I don't like suicide doors?? That just don't make sense!! ???

It's a safety issue, over the years I have seen two cars where the doors pop open, no-one was hurt but is sure raised hell with the car.
