  1. Tery Those are super as well! That last one is Mercedes I think WOW ... I want to tow my rig with the Franklin service car. Im working on the chrome rails for the top of the box as we speak.
  2. I was trying to explain to my son in law what I wanted to build for a trailer to haul my race car. I explained when I was a kid in my dads old car group there was a man Newt Sweet that had a teens Metz roadster and he hauled it everywhere on a simple trailer with no bed , just 2 channels . It was just like this one with oversized wheels and tires and no springs. It worked great, was light and looked very cool and period. Today I found this shot and thought Id share it! I love the 37 Ford custom as well! I think these type trailers were quite common before trailers were mas produced like today.

  19. I recently bought a original truck (1977 Chev C10 Scottsdale ) . The interior is a red dash, door panels and fabric paneled seat with vinyl ends and center. The fabric is split from age and I would like to restore the seat as it was when new. I haven't been able to find a vendor that sells the material or a replacement cover. The dash also has cracks in it. I want to set this truck up as original as I can as it was never driven in the winter/salt here in NY. Can anyone recommend a supplier? Thank you Mike West 585 738 1541 mawest729@gmail.com
  20. Save me the trouble of making a pair of these frame to spring dumb irons as show on this Mercer. If they similar , I may be able to work with them. Thank you and Merry Christmas! Mike West 585 738 1541
