Hell yeah! I have been waiting way to long to do this but today I finally got my fingers out of my as and put back the engine in its frame. The chassie has been done for nearly two years now so its time. Time to get out on the road in good company of my friends.
Hello sunshine hello beer, soon we will meet again!
I want you all to go the your nearest news stand and buy MCM motorcycle magazine or Wheels magazine to take a close look at our good friend Pontus Abrahamsson from Hönö awsome Harley that resently won bike of the year by MCM. Damn cool bike with lots of attitude. I bow for you. Congrats man!
Victory! Project pheaton is back on track. I have been waiting for 1½ month to get my -39 Ford brakes back from relining and turning drums. For the first time in many many years the frame is standing on wheels again.
know Im waiting for the valvejob to be done for my -36 flathead and make new brake linesfor the chassie. Then I can finally fire it up at take a test run...
Visited my old friend Pål in Norway last weekend for a short visit to take a look at his -32/-28 Roadster project. The chassie is all done just need to get rid of the tudor body. Looks really good. Engine got evans heads , thickstun intake with stromberg 97 on top, mercury 4 inch crank , ported and relived. I hope this beauty will roar this spring. Looking forward to pass your left side and see you in my rear wiew mirror. Come on man, get your hotrod done now!
This car should not exist. It was a concept car in 1953 and here it is live and kickin in a parking lot somewear in usa. Someone has used a 1955 Chevy nomad to build this one. Its a killer ride, I like it!
Check this photo of Big john mazmanian, well known for his candy red -41 Willys, But in this photo his driving, I think 1970 plymoth Cuda. Somethimes when you got the grip you can make a wheelie, but this guy is litte cooler then everybody else. Look closely and you can see all four wheels are off the ground. Thats fuckin awsome!
It was expensive to visit custom bike show in Norrtälje -74. 3 swedish crowns. And 10 crowns to exhibit! I think its alittle more today... Skurk & flytlack (Ingemar becker & jarmo pulkinen) won first price for best paint.
Found this homebuilt hotrod on ebay. Someone tryed to build it like a speedster from Mechanix Illustrated november 1951. Damn cool with Z´d -32 frame and still using the original grillshell and homemade body.
You got to love this unrestored 1927 hotrod built in 1953. My good old friend Pål want to pass it away to a new home.
Here are som words from its owner:
From my understanding, the 27 touring was restored to original in 1951. Then in 1953 the owner purchased a low 29K mileage mint 1940 V8 60 pick up truck and put all the drivetrain, brakes, steering components into the 27 touring. All of that took place in Redwood City CA. Tub is more or less untouched since 53. Paint and chrome tells a story.
The tub is now located in Norway. Contact me on my email or leave a comment and Ill pass the owners email or phone# to you.
Now I got my 21 bolt flathead in Gothenburg.I will use this engine in my project -29 pheaton. I had this running in my old -32 ford tudor earlier. Then I polished the oem Ford aluminum heads. Later this week I can start take it apart and go trough it. I might have some valve job to do. I placed the early Thickstun intake manifold with 2 stromberg 97 on top, thinking of using a scintilla magneto or if I can find a Lincoln Zephyr V12 distributor converted to V8. If anybody out there got one please contact me!
Today I tryed different De Luxe steering wheels for my project -29 pheaton on deuce rails. Its hard to decide which one I will use. The plan with my pheaton is not to use any parts newer then 1939. fot the moment the only "new" parts is 1939 brakes , 1937 spindles and 1939 pedal assembly. Everything else is older.
