Car description

RARE OPPORTUNITY!Preserved 1960's Hot Rod Roadster. Started in 1965 by the original builder, inished around 1967-68.Placed instorage fromabout 1970until 2012!!!!!!!!Car is bolted together but HAS NOT RUN OR BEEN DRIVEN SINCE 1970!!!!!!Paraphrased from the original owner/ builder...."Around 1963/1964Ihad a Model A Coupe with a pretty hot Smallblock. It was a 1956 265 punched out with a Duntov cam, olid lifters, deuces, eaders, eworked heads and a dual point distributor. This was linked to a '39 top loader tranny. The wheels were Buick hoops reversed with early Ford centers. The thing is,I decided Ireally wanted a Roadster. In 1964, ar Craft had an article "How to Build a Hot Rod".I looked around for a Model A Roadster body, 32 Roadster or even a "T". But in Seattle in '64 it wasn't so easy to find between the rain and restorer's.I decided to follow the article and build a "T" Roadster,so Icalled a few Hot Rod buddies and some racer friends and put out the word. Using the plans in the article, ome buddies and lots of beerwe welded together a pretty nice chassis (especiallyfor that era)! Onceit was aroller, swapped the drivetrain out of the Model A (daily driver) and sourced a 4" dropped axle. It seems that this would have been around late 1965 sometime.I thenbought a fiberglass body from Kellison and finished all the plumbing, teering, tc and got her running. Between '66 and '67 the car went through a few changes and by '68 or so the car was running and driving and in various stages of completion. Around 1970 (for personal reasons) the '23 was partially disassembled and put away in storage until 2012"!Specs:Body: Kellison Fiberglass. Painted BLACK around 1967. Paint has minor chips and imperfections, hould touch up and buff out well.Chassis: home built by a group of Dirt Track racers and Drag Racers... 2x4 steel tubing. Split wishbone suspension front and rear. Front axle is 4" drop I- beam with "spring behind". Spindles are early Ford with modifications (from an old gasser). No front brakes.1950's HALIBRAND 301 Quick Change Rear end is mounted via transverse leaf spring. Rear brakes are also from an old gasser with drilled backing plates.Engine: is a 1956 265 V8 bored .060 with a Duntov solid lifter cam, x4 barrel carbs (1957 Carter), allory dual point distributor. Transmission: is 1939 Top Loader with Zephyr gears.Rearend: is Halibrand 301 quick change. Interior: is button tufted and in excellent condition. Dash is handmade from wood and tasteful.Front wheels: are Harley Davidson 19" hoops on early Harley Davidson sidecar hubs. Original owner/builder told me they came from one of Jerry Ruth's early front engine dragsters.This car is "Bolted together". The original owner/ builder took the car apart and put it in storage. He bolted everything back together in 2012 and I put some more of it together after I got it home. The car needs to be pulled apart and reassembled as a preservation restoration. The car "evolved from 1965-1969, ut 99% of the car is EXACTLY as finished in 1968!!!!!!!I have included photos from 1965-2015. The last few photos are the way the car looks right now TODAY.NOTHING TO HIDE. Car is a preserved piece of history!I have a plastic tote with some extra parts included(early cast aluminum "Moon" gas pedal, ear brakes, ront hubs for brakes, tc), s well as steel wheels (Buick hoops with Ford center), oth 13" wide wheels in photos included. Only thing in photos missing is the wooden shift knob (original owner kept it).CLEAR WASHINGTON STATE TITLE (1923 Ford) IN MY NAME. WELL OVER 100 additional photos on Flickr:

****I have received a few messages about "WHAT THE CAR LOOKS LIKE TODAY". From the photo of the body in a crate to the end of the pics are all "Recent" photos. Last 3 photos were taken within the last year.Just to clarify:car DOES NOT RUN OR DRIVE. 100% preserved since 1970. No gas in the tank, ngine was turned over every so often, verything was stored in heated garage (under the house). This Hot Rod needs to be completely gone through HAS NOT RUN IN 45+ YEARS!!!!!!If you want to get in a car magazine..... this is probably the car to do it. With the history, he proportions and fact it's A TIME CAPSULE! BUT....YOU WILL NEED TO PUT IN THE WORK! This IS/WAS a finished fairly high end build that has been stored properly. If you know anything about Hot Rods this should be a very easy "Re-build".Paste the FLICKR link into google, ing whatever.... and you will see over 100 additional photos of the car including shots from last year. "T" is stored inside my garage and has not changed a bit since last photos taken.Thanks! ****
