Here's my 26 an a 32 frame
I have a 31 dodge frame and a 27 roadster body. the frame is too wide and i have thought about modifying the frame, which means that the front end would have to be replaced with something else. i cannot find wheel studs for it either.
here was my old roadster on a A frame, it was z'd in th rear 5"
These are my favorites... Great cars.
just a bump for the LOVING IT!
some cool cars.
I searched but couldn't find one. Does anyone have a build thread putting a T on an A frame?
Also very nice. Some really neat stuff on this thread.
Jsut got my 27 Roadster body and finishing up my A chassis so.................... bump.
SUBSCRIBED!! More please!! Here's mine just waiting to be started
Well get on it already!
I have zeed a 28 chassis as per Vern Tarddells How To Build a hot rod and the holes in the rear 26 / 27 turtle deck lined up perfect with the Model A holes in the rear cross member. Just had to cut the sub frame on the inside and trim the Model A cross member to drop it over the cross member.
I am ... patience son.
How aboot a bump. More t&a please
When I get home this weekend I should have enough parts to mock mine up in the shed. If the wife doesn't kill me first. Ha
Here's one I built last year for the Race of Gentlemen:
and the build thread:
Heres mine under construction, the body is channeled a couple inches i guess.
Bump, id like more!!!
again? banger set ups.
Mine isn't as traditional as some, but I like it.
How a boot a version 7 bump
In the interest of bumping this, here's a great pic from @Bugsy showing the trunk area of his 26/27 roadster and where it sits in relation to the frame.
I'd love to see more 26/27 roadsters on A chassis.
. Here's one I built sold it to buy a model a coupe guy backed out still like to kick his a$$
Bringing this back up, anyone got any good pics to share? trying to decide on channeled or not for one im gathering up parts for.
Here's mine, a '26 RPU body but with a modified earlier turtle deck. Not the best pics but all I've got for now. I like it non-channeled, T's are small enough anyway and any extra height inside the car and visually outside I think helps, although I've seen some channeled ones that looked great too.
Rolled mine out to blow the dust off it yesterday..
Is it still a project if nothing ever gets done?
I did go through the brakes front and rear, drilled the backing plates and new king pins in
