Restored chassis - ready to begin sheet metal and body installation next week.

 

So what are you going to do with the batteries?   Do you have the original cases?  I've wondered if EV restorers are substituting more modern technology inside the old cases.

Most Detroit owners seem to be using modern 6-volt golf cart batteries.  That is what I plan to use.  I do not have the originals.

As a 32,  is it an updated earlier car or one of the "newer" looking ones?   In the 30s it seems like they were just building or updating to order.  No spec builds.

I found this thread backwards... through your post to someone else's post in the more general "Our Cars and Restoration Projects" thread.  I'm interested in following this restoration.. do you have a "start" to the restoration and perhaps a thread about the restoration of the body?

 

Really great looking car and a fantastic job on it!!
