    for you folks that built a fine point car and actually finished it, how long did it take from start to finish?

    or if you never finished how long have you been pluggin along on it?

        Two and a half for the Special Delivery. The updates from the judging sheets added another 6 months. 4 years for the Telephone truck.

          So it took me about 7 year for each FINE POINT cars.. The 1930 Standard Roadster, w/ trunk and the 1930 Deluxe Tudor Phaeton , both Henry Ford Award winners. One must find COMPLETE parts and start restoring them before you start putting it all back together.. ONE THING "TAKE YOUR TIME"

              As I'm lying in bed in my hotel room in Brazil, I was going through different past posts and thought I would add a comment to this one. My '29 Tudor took me over 2300 hours and about 2-1/2 years. My very early '28 Coupe is going on 13 years now! I actually started on it after I acquired two obscure parts, the open bail light switch and the on-off-dim light switch. With those pieces, the hunt was on to build a car around them. If all goes well, I should have it finished and ready to trailer it to Dearborn next year for the MARC meet.

                Gary, If you knew how many times I looked at and studied the pictures you had of your tudor when I was restoring mine you would fall off your chair.They were a indispensable part of the restoration process.

                Jim I agree they are fantastic. I added then to the VFF’s fine point photo thread the other day.

              I’ve been collecting the correct parts for 35+ years to one day start to restore the roadster to fine point, may not ever truly get there, but been fun trying!

                "SOMEDAY" I'll mount my ELECTRIC CAN OPENER/KNIFE SHARPENER, whenever I find it.
                Found the SPECIAL screws & mounting plate, in the Kitchen Junk Drawer!
                By time I find it, cans might be OBSOLETE---LOL
                Now, you know why I would NEVER attempt to build a HIGH POINTS Car.
