Default I.D. car in woods

I bought an old radial engine and went out to the woods to get it and not far away was this car. Any idea what it is? Pics aren't great, it is pretty well overgrown. Thanks.

Pretty certain I could get the car at give-away price. Maybe I'll drag it home.

Here is the radial. I don't know a damn thing about it either.

With that big cooling fan I assume it is out of an Army tank or something. I got it for yard art.

Ooh, thats a great score if you get it. Either buy it or let others know where it is because thats maybe the second most popular hot rod around.
And learn to recognize Model As...

So, is it available? What'll it be - first page of a build thread or shift it to Sitting and Rotting? Looks fairly intact and solid.

I'd almost bet ancient Sikorski or Piasecki helicopter with that engine mount. Name tag, or number of cylinders? DD

I certianly wasn't expecting to see a 30/31 Model A Coupe when I clicked on this thread! You really need to buy that, there's NO WAY I would have left there without making an offer.

Is that a 6-pack of Henry Weinhard's beer sitting on the top of the coupe? That would seal the deal for me.
