Re: 1934 Wayne Daysailer

Pretty Wild! --- Haven't seen that construction method before. And I notice you are labeling all the parts. Gonna be a fun puzzle to put back together.

BTW...have you located an appropriate nose for that darlin' yet?

Also...if you are any other vintage Chevy folks need any 20 x 5 original rims...I have a stack of them that have to go.

Re: 1934 Wayne Daysailer

Yes - I have the '36 International nose already. I found a complete body less frame. In retrospect, it would have been much better to have the frame since the frame establishes the position and shape of the all the body parts - fenders most importantly.

I've been busy (2 hours a week) working on the new chassis for the '36 International. It's going on an '88 Suburban (sweet old rigs and a dime a dozen). Turns out that the hump in the frame over the front axle is the exact same height as the high point over the rear axle - so that establishes my floor height. The axle is much further forward in old rigs than modern ones and after some consideration, I decided it was easier to move the engine back instead of moving the axle forward. The engine is now back 12-3/4" and it's time to establish wheelbase and floor structure.

Details on moving the engine. I built super structure to relocate the OEM crossmember and engine mounts back in the frame. I think the hotrodders usually weld mounts, but I kept with the OEM theory and bolted it all in. The plywood pic shows where the new floor will be.

Outstanding! --- starting with a functional chassis does give you quite a leg up. There are plenty of times I have wished I'd done the same instead of building all new systems onto my old frame.

Can't wait to see more.
