1934 Commer Shooting Brake Woodie Estate Hot Rod/Rat Rod/Gasser Project
Forget restoring it - This is a fabulous Hot Rod Project
I have had this in storage for a number years and I always had 2 possible plans for it
First Plan was to make it a Gasser as its got a beautiful beam on the front with a pair of parallel springs so you're half way there !. ”Woodburner” !!!!
Second Plan was if not a Gasser then dumped and heavily channelled on air bags
The Woodie comes totally original. I do have the panels such as wings but they are shot. was never worried as the plan was for it to be fenderless anyway. No original engine or box.
The body is generally good. the metal cab has rot in the bottom of the doors. the back woody part is also good. outside wood good. some weaker roof timbers. Had always planned NOT to touch the body and run as is. a Rat Woodie !
The chassis has a couple of patches of rot both sides by the rear axle (about a foot) but apart from that it looks fine. needs a grit blast but the rest is real solid. Always planned to take the body off and box up the chassis anyway.
All original front and back axles. steering (which works very well with no slop). original beautiful gauges and original 18” military style wheels. plus a spare.
To go with the project. I have:
THE ORIGINAL REGISTRATION AND V5
ALSO PROJECT COMES WITH:
· 350ci (5. 7 ltr) Small Block Chevy V8 (a cut out from a 1978ish Chevy Capprice. been stood but ran fine)
· TH350 Gearbox (as above)
· Prop (as above)
· 10 bolt Chevy rear axle (as above)
· Pair of red period steel wheels that fit the original front/rear stud pattern (these were from and American Jeep a CJ ??)
The V5 is registered as it should be. as a 1934 Commer Estate. as shown in the pic of the original registration. span > the number plate has never been transferred. don't know if it can be but it must be valuable. it has 2 letters and 4 numbers.
So there you have it.
One of the most awesome. rare and unusual Hot Rod. Rat Rod. Gasser projects you could find. but don't be fooled by your dreams. this is a project. you ain't gonna drive it home !
Any takers ?
Veiwing before bidding is positively encouraged.
