32 Bucciali-ish

This is a crazy project, I’ve had a picture of that car on my wall for years, for me –to build a car like this would certainly be challenging, but I’m not doing a replica of it –I’m doing my version which I hope looks more like a future 20’s/30’s playboy car.

The base for this car is a 4 door Essex, the Essex has 4 suicide doors with Stainless hinges and brass pins( the workmanship of this car is way better than any ford, back in the day) Loads of mods already to get the scale right for the Bucciali dimensions, and loads more to go; I had to lean the A post back so the hood will clear the visor, I took 6” out of the rear doors, and added it to rear panel. This car will have 32” overall wheels with 22” rims, and right now without a chop it stands 57” tall. It’s kind of hard to tell what’s going on, I like to work from biggest to smallest and most of the unforeseen stuff has been sorted so now it’s just a matter of keeping on it till completion. We hope to have this car ready for Performance world and AutoRama this year.

I’ll update the shots as things develop.
