My old old 1927 Ford raga muffin project .
Mock-ups are good for both planning an INSPIRATION.

Sure is, I have a 1927 Roadster on a 32 frame, Halibrand Quick change and a 46 Merc flathead.
Killer!!!! Love it man , question how is the performance with the v8 flathead in these cars??? What rear gear you running? Here is my 8ba
Welcome to the club. You've got a great start. I'm in the same boat, 27' Roadster, 8BA flathead, 3 speed and banjo rear end.
Here is my 27 and what I started with. Yours looks like a great project! Gary
Heres mine, a lot of fun to drive. Channeled 3".
Model T hot rods are fun. Good luck with the build and make sure you post a build thread.
This was mine, a '24. The guy who built it said that it should have had a flattie or a banger, but he just happened to have a 350 SBC so that's what he used. If I had bought it when I was, say, 40, it would have been a lot of fun. But I was actually 65, and it was a bit rich for my elderly nerves. It was big fun anyway, but I scared myself silly whenever I got on it hard.
So that was YOUR car? I've seen pictures of it on here and I love it! Never knew who it belonged to.
