Wink The '22 Dodge..again.

Thought I would post pictures of the '22 here.
They got "lost" in the K.B. meltdown and never did reappear.
I've been working on a lot of the "little time consuming things", so not much has changed
if you have already seen these.
I 'll post further updates as I get things "done". '22

Thanks for posting the pics here 22. That's a really cool car. I especially like those drilled backing plates. Nice work.

22, I think that is one of the most "Bare Bones" rods I have ever seen. Very clean.

Default More information.........

'24 Dodge requested some interior photos...
For whatever reason, the site won't let me upload them now....

This is a cut down touring car, and the windshield is stock for the car,
it is the lower half of the glass for a 2 piece winsheild.
The stanchions were cut even with the top of the glass, the rest of the stanchion was used
for the headlight bracket on each side, bent and welded to the frame.
The upper glass pivot was used to mount the light. Worked out well.

The body is a cut down '22 Dodge touring, '29 Ford frame, Z'd 11" and narrowed 5" at the firewall.
Engine is a '49 Chevy 235 "Hi-torque" ( McGurk cam and intake with 3 Stromberg singles, Nicson side and valve covers, Mallory duel point) '36 chevy 3 speed tranny, and '48 Ford brakes and rear end.
I have an early steel quick change rear that will go in soon, it is a modified stock center,
turned 180 degrees and modified.

"24, I'll post the interior photos as soon as I can..

Lightbulb A few more early photos....

Well, now that I have figured out the secret code for uploading pictures,here are a few more.
Turns out that, even though they were under the max size limit, one dimension was too large.
I FINALLY "got it".

A couple more early photos and interior shots.
And the quick change that is going in as soon as I can locate someone close by who knows
how to set up the rear end correctly. "22

Alrighty then! I just bought a unknown body today. It has been made into a t-bucket-esq body. Judging by the looks of the dash I'd say its a dodge of some sort. It comes complete with operational doors, and a firewall stamped T127203. I'll be sure to post pictures when I have time. I assume I can draw upon the vast knowledge pool here to help I.D. the body exactly, and to help out when I get stuck.

The dash is identical to 22's dodge. My glove box even operates normally, and the dash has the goofy dash light located in the middle.
