Hey guys, Iím new to the hobby. By chance I was able to get a free 29 Tudor from my neighbor, only catch was I had to dig it out. Yup! Dig it out! Super stoked on it and it has the best patina around. Iíve been around the hot rod stuff since I work at a hot rod shop as a welder/fabricator. This is my first model A. I wanted to share with you guys from digging it out to putting it on a frame and driving. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...7f99e41ac7.jpg

I was able to score a completely car from an older couple. Car had been stored for 30+ years but in boxes and halfway back to fully restore. Decided I would keep the frame, drive gear since it had already been restored and has a title. So if anyone is looking for parts I have a lot of them. My trailer, suv, and the car I purchased where loaded down with parts.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...417118e2c2.jpg

After digging for about an hour the body was headed to my house and ready to be bolted onhttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...acb23faaaa.jpg

Got it to sit on the frame fairly nice but it does have a twist to it, so Iíll have to play with a torch and see if I can get her back straight. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...36eeae69a7.jpg

Thanks guys, at this point Iím trying to get the twist out of the body. Body mounting points line up but need some massaging into place.

Welcome, keep us entertained with your progress and photos. Please add your location to your personal information. It can at times help us to help you. I presume your rural, as not many left to be dug out these days.

WOW!!! Wonderful! Quite a project; you are braver (and probably younger) than I am. Best of luck and keep us posted.

Jrsaw, Iím not that young. About to turn 37. But yea Iíve been know to be pretty brave. Iíve rebuilt and restored a few vehicles, have hand built a 73 bronco piece by piece. So Iím sure this will be a lot easier with access to every tool in my shop. And knowledge from my boss who has been in the game for a while.

There are a few MAFCA chapters in your area. They would be a good source of information and or help.

The Central Coast is a great area. There are a couple of wineries in Creston.

We like to stay in SLO and drive to Cambria for Lunch or dinner at Robin’s Cafe and a slice of Pie at Linn’s Restaurant.

A great afternoon is visiting the Firestone Walker Brewery and the wineries west of Paso Robles on State Highway 46.

Hope you have all the parts for that Kari-Keen Trunk on the trailer!

Does it still have the original "tag" within?
