ADMEYER

ADMEYER


IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A (RELATIVELY) SIMPLE FIX BUT...


This 1933 Chevrolet Master was originally a 3-window coupe. It was converted into a streetrod roadster in the late 1970's by its owner in Oklahoma. We purchased the car from Tim Butler in Mississippi in January 2000 and drove it home to Oregon (via Route 66 from Tulsa to Santa Monica). The old Chevys have a lot of wood in the body inner structure and I discovered that the wood, being 70 years old and weakened by the removal of the top, had to be removed due to stress cracks forming in the outer sheet metal. The plan was to replace the wood with a new metal inner structure and give her a new, stiffer chassis.

That's it. Simple, right? Just a few months of work over the 2001-2002 winter and drive it again in the spring. Well, not quite...

What you see here on this web site is the pictorial story of the 13 years it took to go from a rough, wood-laden Chevy "Coupster" to an elegant, quality roadster with flowing lines and glowing paint. The goal changed from just fixing rotten wood to restyling the lines, taking out the "sharp edges" and making her a unique ride that anyone would appreciate. So much was changed. In fact, everything changed from what we purchased in 2000 except most of outer sheet metal. But even that was not spared; every body panel  on the car was restyled. All other parts  are new including the chassis, suspension (front and rear), fuel tank, drive line, motor, transmission, interior, wheels, and many, many more things that you can see in the pictures.

So please browse around and see what it took to create this wonderfully beautiful hot rod that we call, "ADMEYER."
