Based on your answer, I would first check the front tire pressures and make sure that they are high enough. I run 45 lbs in all three of my cars (’29,’31 and ’34).

Next I’d check the front shocks to make sure the fluid is up and that they are working.

Next, I would try reducing the toe-in by a quarter turn of the tie rod assembly. My purpose in doing this is to see if you can affect the shimmy by changing the toe-in. My ’31 had a nasty shimmy when I got it and this is how I fixed it.
