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 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.

Back to your engine - Posted a link on the Warbird Information Exchange (WIX) forum a while ago - so far it seems to be a Wright R-975 or R-985 Cyclone set up for an M4 tank.

With the stainless cowl band I'd peg the A as a '31. Definitely make a bid to get it as it won't look that good in a few years and I'll bet you'll be surprised how deteriorated it is now after you get it pulled out and start disassembling it. A big majority of the sheetmetal could be paper thin if it's been parked there for a long time.

Think we have a match on the engine:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr0ke...ature=youtu.be
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVJDOW4rC6Y
According to WIX member bdk, it's a 7 cylinder 250 hp Continental engine set up for an M3 Stuart tank or an LVT. And if it's not seized up, and you can get it running, it will sound awesome (i.e. LOUD!).
