Default 338ci Y-Block Wrapped Up in '30 Model A Tudor

I've been wanting a project like this for a while now but one day when I was asked to fix an oiling problem on a Y for Derrek Boling we got to talking and the build was on!

I fell in love with the Boling Brothers Model A pickup and wanted it, although there were a few thing I would like to change. Rather than change a car that was perfect in its own right Derrek suggested we build one just for me the way I want it. So here we go.

The pickup that started it. Simple and clean with a Y-Block.

I'm in the mood for a little more power so with an engine change to my dragster "Elwood" I will use the 338ci Y that has been propeling it to 10.61 1/4s with a C-4 and a 9" out of a early Bronco that was donated by my friend Greg Scroggins. Derrek had a frame started and the work has begun.

The body was a bit of a challenge, I have been looking for a couple of months now wanting a '30/'31 but everything that was close and in my price range were '28/'29s, nothing wrong with that but I want what I want.

The other night on CL we found what we were looking for so now it's time to start the build thread.

Nice straight complete car with many extra parts.

"there's one more thing I got the pink slip daddy!"

Updates to come!
