These used to be very popular, but weren't seen for quite some time  Lately, ALL deuces are popular, and I'm starting to see them at shows again.

These are for you flatheadV8's.  My friend Bob's Aussie, now Canadian tub!



Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

Did your friend steel his Aussie tub out or leave the wood. It is a very nice Tub. I have a friend who has two original Tubs, one 33 and a 34. Still untouched. Good Rodder Fodder.

Graeme, Bob replaced all the wood with steel. He's an old racecar builder/fabricator/welder. It is ROCK solid!

It was a good move Duane. A few years ago I built a 34 Aussie Roadster and replaced all the wood, installed an American all steel floor, lowered the sills like the American model and it was a huge job so can appreciate anyone who undertakes that task.

Great car! My Dad tried to trade Roger Bell a roadster back in the day for this car, I wish it would have happened!

My tub. Yes, a tudor and steel!  Done using roadster / phaeton cowl and doors ( doors extended 6") , lower quarters from a tudor, and all the right dimensions.
