my dad welded up this Frame 20 years ago he used 2 by 3 rectangle tube
this is a mock-up for the frame drop
frame bracing mock up
frame rail bracing prior to welding
here's the frame painted and 302 installed
nother pic of frame and motor
I found a roadster cowl for $300 but the piller mount were missing so I'll have to do a little sheet metal work on that, not a problem. I did a little mock up on the wood door
By the way I have the model A in my living room because I don't have heat in my shop right now. Lol
the best hundred and eighty dollars I've ever spent on this miter box
I got the windshield pillars fixed and installed the stanchions and mocked up the doors
the woodwork mockup is ready for fitment on frame, as soon as it warms up in the shop
well it finally warmed up and I had a chance to fit the cowl and the wood on the frame
hood and grill mock-up
box mock up
Up next I'll work on the box top and drive shaft loop
I like your little RPU Woody !! Looks like it would be a kick ass ride to putt around in.!!
Or Haul Ass in!! LOL
Really looking good. What is the wood type you are using? It will look great once finished & stained. A Fun project!
Thanks fellas! The wood is just for mock up. I'll use maple once I figure out the dimensions.
this a drawing of the box dimensions
whooo I didn't wanna say anything because I thought you were gonna use that construction lumber. it will look beautiful done in maple. alway's wanted to do something similar with a A
That's looking really cool fortypickup. I like it a lot. I cant wait till you do it in the maple. I will be following this. Keep posting the how to pictures . Very cool. Bob......................
i got the box top mocked up
I'm hoping that's red paint splattered on the wall. Nice work and a cool build!
Ha ha yeah the last tenant painted the wall
nice project , you didnt see the empty band aid cans in the trash lol
Looks like "Oregon pine" that's the name I known in my country!

You might be interested in this woodie build over on the Ford Barn.
The thread is pretty long so start about post #51 if you're interested. Lots of photos.
I like what you are doing, but feel the make or break in your project is how well you get those doors looking matching at/with the cowl pillar.
Otherwise keep up the good work.
