I know there is a 51 (pretty sure its a 51) on here that lays frame and is taking a long time to get on the road because he wants the correct year parts for it. But it is a PA car so it has fenders.

How about a 49 chassic with a 46 engine?
OR was that a 46 chassic with a 49 engine? I can't remember!

Kdf Mangler is a 57 I think. And yes Scott, it's a 51 and a factory reman '49 chassis with a '46 engine and many early KDF parts. I think Nicks'44 kubel might be the oldest on this site

I thought he did that to get out of fender laws, pretty sure it's a late oval body on a custom chassis.

mines a 66, 67, 61, 56, 55, 69, 41 (chevy), 34 (ford), late 30's (international?), New & Fabbed parts - 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12.

More I'm sure but definitely not the oldest. registered as a 67 off the pan.

Does this count? I think it's running a 1930's BGW hood!
