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

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by mctim64, Feb 2, 2012.

  1. 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.

    Tim,

    Great car! I like the concept and goal you have for this hot rod. I believe I told you before but it deserves to be said again...what I admire most about you is your ability to "live the dream". More specifically your ability to come up with and define "the dream", then find a way to finance and execute that "dream" to make it a reality! And usually in a short amount of time. Keep it up. I can't wait to see the results of your latest "dream".

    Greg

    Ohhh man!
    I seen his A at Bakersfield, talked with him quite a bit and took lots of pics. That is damn nice truck.
    I want to put a 312 topped with 3 Chrome strombergs in my coupe.

    This is gonna be cool.

    His truck has a frame that is extended two inches up front to help with clearance issues. I assume yours will be the same?
     
  24. Thanks Greg! Here's a few pix of what we talked about last night. The body gets "blown apart" this weekend. ;) More updates to come.

    This picture shows Derreks shock mount jig, he's set up to put these chassis' together fast and accurate. ;)
     
  25. Yes, and the engine will sit a little higher too. Not too much maybe an inch.

    very cool build!!!
     
  27. Cool...I love using 50's engines in hotrods too...got a 34 ford five window going together with a 370 Pontiac [bored out 57 Pontiac engine] and a T-5/Quick change. I'd be super happy if mine goes 10s like your Y-block! Hell, I'd be smilin with 12s.
     
  28. I don't think it will do 10s in the A body but I will be happy with 12s also. :D
