Take whiskey trades?  Hint for the others that want it.

The amount of whiskey consumed to consider such a trade would probably leave insufficient whiskey for the trade.

Any one know how to directly contact "maschinenbau"?

I've messaged him via GRM and I found him on FB and sent a friend request.

Earlier on he said he'd like to talk about the coupe body,, and I'd like to talk with him first before I make a contact on FB marketplace.

So far the best response to the ad is a guy local to me that wants it to bring this together:

No description available.

If you know me offline, feel free to pass my contact info on to "maschinenbau".

Thanks for reaching out to me. I'm picking this up next weekend unless someone can talk some sense into me.

How do we feel about a modern S10 chassis swap, using a Copart Colorado with the 4 or 5 cylinder Atlas and a nice lil turbo? I feel like I could do that for Challenge money with the right donor.

Id do a twin i beam ranger chassis. In tbeory, it could still look like a solid front axle street rod then. At least in my head. 

 

Otherwise, link to build thread?

Easy and pretty cheap to make an s10 chassis have very reasonable handling. Not a bad plan.

I will start a build thread when I actually start building this, but it will probably be about a year before I get to it. Until then here are some pictures as it landed. 

 

Priority wise, ahead of this project would be the Free Europa. And ahead of that is building a shop, roughly in this spot. Until then...

3 window instead of 5 but this is my god fathers (RIP) 1933 Chevy. The truck was almost new when this pic was taken. It's been my dream car since I was a little kid and I used to pretend to drive it in the garage. I vote for the old gasser look
