PostSubject: My New Projects   November 7th 2010, 22:54

I went to go look at a 1940 Oldsmobile 2 door coupe and was expecting to talk the guy down a bit from his 1000 dollar asking price. Instead he made me an offer i just could not pass up. He offered me a 1940 Olds 2dr coupe and a 1941 Chevy 2dr coupe for 1000. Plus he also threw in a set of crager rims, headers, all the chrome trim for cars, shifters and a huge box of parts. So after 16 hours and two days of drive time and load time i finally got both back to the ranch. No i just need to figure out how i want to build them and get started. So now for the pictures. Remember these cars have been sitting in a field for quite some time, so they look a little ragged.

This will also be a build thread. So i will update with pictures as i make progress.


1940 Oldsmobile 2 door coupe





And the 1041 Chevy 2 door coupe (I have yet to put on the fenders)




And then some together

Are you building Both or just one? If one I would choose the 1940 way better looking with more potential and parts are easier to find due to higher production numbers! Are you looking to do a stock restore or custom rod build? That is a crazy deal... I would sell the one you like the least and use the money you make to get the frame sand blasted and powder coated!

That is a great deal LCT, lots of work to do but boy what a great couple of projects, something you can work on with kids later in life and pass down.

Good luck and keep us updated on how they are going.

Had to edit my post, they are 1940 Olds and a 1941 Chevy i had them switched.

The 41 chevy has everything all the chrome, seats, guages, original motor, transmission, frame and rearend. So i will probably do the Chevy first and i am thinking selling all the original parts so someone can rebuild one proper and rodding it out. Thinking of building my own frame out of 2x3, then making it a true 4 link ford 9 inch with IFS up front. I want to put the new E-rod engine in it from chevy if i go the route of street rodding it, and the new 6X six-speed tans from TCI.


With the 1940 Olds i think i am going to build a fenderless rod with that one custom everything but running a 383 with quad weber set up, TH400 trans and a ford 9 inch. Not much else maybe a flat black paint job. Not sure on this one, was also thinking of building one for the wife to cruse around in so we will see.

Also go with rack and pinon steering up front.. A buddy used Flaming River for his project and the fit and finish was superb and it looked awesome! I like all the other ideas! I would also add air bags if you are going to show it and for comfort.. as for the olds do a true rat rod build keep it cheap and fun... One for show and one for fun, well both for fun but you get the point..lol

Already plan on adding airbags, HID headlights, rack and pinion is part of a front IFS setup, A/C and the whole package, the chevy will be a complete custom build. Paint we are looking at a two tone synergy green and gloss black or synergy green with flat black accents. still in the planning phase. But some things are already in motion.

Well i never got a chance to work on either of these two sweet ladies, but they are heading to two new homes to get the love they deserve. I just sold both of them for far more than i paid.

The even better news is that i have already made a deal to purchase a new more manageable project that i will be picking up in Colorado the Friday i get out there. I wont spoil the surprise yet as to what it is.... but wooo damn it is a sweet ride. So you will all have a chance to see her when i show up at the May event.
