  1. 1930 Model 77 Hydraulic Brakes

    No it will not. Unless you have an extremely good (super expensive) ultra dry compressed air system the air will have a lot of moisture. Air filters do not remove much moisture. Home type air compressors will do the opposite of dehumidify. Nitrogen can dehumidify.
  2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coupé_utility A new ute here ttps://www.holden.com.au/cars/ute Believe the V8 is no longer made.sold
  3. Your movie idea reads like a direct rip off from the Mad Max series Coupe Utilities are still made and sold in Australia (but not for much longer) And in Eu, Asia & South America, but often based on 4 cylinder fwd cars

  5. 1954-55 Rear end swap into a '37

    There are several articles on changing diff ratio's that can be downloaded from http://www.1937and1938buicks.com/The-Torque-Tube/The-Torque-Tube.htm Several different methods. I have indexed these into a excel file
  6. F/S 1952 Roadmaster Rolling Frame

    If you can see (unused) side engine mounts (4 threaded holes) on a cast pad on the block its after 1948, and a better engine.
  7. 1954-55 Rear end swap into a '37

    With a bit of work that can under a 1938 series 40, but 3.4 is a tall ratio for a str8
  8. Why do we never see original schematics?

    No manufacturer will let the old drawings into the wild. Many people/businesses reverse engineer all manner of products (fakes) With 3D scanning and 3D printing of molds and now 3D printing in plastic & metal making reproductions is now a fraction of what it cost 2 or more decades ago Note : drawings and schematics are not the same
  9. What's up at Buy/Sell?

  10. 1936 Chevrolet Cabriolet

    It does look a bit like that. 1934 - 1935 GM Holden with later front end. It may be a GM bitsa . A Vauxhall? Measuring the wheel base & track front & rear would help identify it. Engine sereail number and an other numbers .

    Have edited my post Toyota Aust is stopping production (as others correctly corrected assumed) They currently make Camry's
  12. 1936 Chevrolet Cabriolet

    From the steps at back to the (trunk) dicky seat it was built as RHD Argentina (near Brazil) was RHD until about WW2, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right-_and_left-hand_traffic But in the last 80 years anything could have been done to do it.
  13. 1936 Chevrolet Cabriolet

    Looking at Norm Darwin books on early GM-Holden, 1936 roadsters do not have separate bolt on windscreen posts. But part of the body. And 1 photo 1936 Chev roadster pictured has long doors hinged at the rear. The 1934 & 1935 GMH Chevs have bolt on windscreen posts and "short" doors on roadsters hinged at the front (like the car in post 1) (will post images later) It may be coachbuilt in South Africa or even UK (then to South Africa) ++++ Holden is GM. GM bought the Holden business in 1931. GMH from then on. But not for much longer. GM Holden will cease production in Oct 2017. Toyota Aust will cease production in Oct 2017. Ford Australia stopped production last year. Over a century of car production gone Complete cars, engines, transmissions, etc were once all made in Au
