    The previous owner of this '31 Slant was driving down the road minding his own business. A woman in the red car cut him off hard, he swerved and laid on the brakes and managed to do 200 feet down the road sideways. He was OK, but no longer wanted anything to do with the car. Insurance totaled it. My nephew Miles bought it, and using hammers, dollies, shot bag, stud gun, Porta Power, a few hours of labor, put Humpty Dumpty together again. At the most, where needed, there is only a skim coat of plastic.
    Frame was bent, steering box exploded, front axle turned into a pretzel, tie rod destroyed, L front wheel destroyed, etc etc.
    "Only" took 3 1/2 years.

      Whew !! VERY nicely done and so glad you revived what we all know would have turned into lawn art or worse, you saved it from the crusher.

    I love cabriolets and commercial vehicles. Yes they all have names. One of my 68C's and 68B's are both Brewster Green with the accessory 3 door hood. Sadly I'm at the age that necessitates down sizing. The Maroon 68C is tentatively sold and next to go will likely be the '30 Moleskin Brown 68B. Sigh! Once you give them names they are like your children (although older than I am but not by much) which makes it harder to decide which to give up for adoption. I usually ask for visitation rights.

      Well, I guess I will need to take the rear photos in the evening or night so everything shows up better. Anyway, you can see the difference with the LED headlights, these are very bright at night. I can see 1 mile at night.

      Anyway, the rear are LED and the center is for Backup AND third eye!

          WELCOME to the site Bert!

          Nice Tudor Bert. I am wondering, what is the date on the tank? Also, is that a left hand brake?

          More pictures would be nice.

          It has been updated with a modern engine & trans. March 1930. The brake is in the center. left brake holes are covered. I am still learning about it. Having to replace the clutch already.

        Our 1929 Tudor, born May 20, 1929 in Twin Cities plant. First lived in South Dakota, then Oregon and now in California. A great touring car. We have owned it for 37 years. We call it Lulabelle

          Hey, WELCOME to the site!!

          Sweet ride. Sure is nice to see more Tudors. You know they made more of them than any other body style, and I was noting that at Gettysburg most were open or Sedans in the pics.

          Yes, we drove the SW sedan from NE Massachusetts to the Gettysburg meet. The picture of my coupe was taken some years ago in front of Edsel Ford's home. The picture of the sedan was taken in front of the Mountain View Grand Hotel in Whitefield, NH and the woody sits in front of the lighthouse on Plum Island, MA.

                It was painted before I bought it, and I think the owner got drunk, then picked out a color.
