  • Toplees cruiser

    So we picked up a 1916 maxwell as our first shop build. It will get built, cruised then sold. So i figured it would be a slow, budget minded build. We are keeping the budget part. Just not as slow as first though. I have scored a few deals that were to good to pass up.

    The car is a bare shell, but came with a crude start to a frame. Its built with 2x3x3/16 tubing, so the material is good. But the frame is poorly put together. I will be usint the material, but pretty much starting from scratch on the frame.

    I dcored a running 250 ford straight 6, all i need to find is a t 5 to put behind it. Im goin over sunday to pick up a complete model a front axle with spring and wishbone. Also a complete rear axle with spring and Wishbone. 5 good wire wheels and tires and a front cowl of un known origin. I will use all the modle a axles and springs along with tires and wheels for the running gear.

    Will be a small car thats fun to drive, not a race car.

    Definitly good parts for a start. Never enough leg room in the old ones. But the turbulents more than make up for it!

          Nice finds! That second cowl looks like a great start for the next build.
