One of the coolest '29 roadsters ever !   I had the fortune of seeing it on it's way to California for the restoration; a guy was hauling some parts for me from NJ; the roadster was also on the trailer.  Stupid me; I didn't think to take a pic, but the image is etched in my mind.  It was just a bare shell on a rolling chassis, but you could see the from the cowl louvers and drilled frame rails that it was 22jr.
