Turns out this is my first hot rod build, be gentle guys, I'm green! Had a customer with a Model A that I just loved so here we are. Found this out on the Feather River in CA as it had been sitting for almost 50 years. The folks on the property had used it at their vacation home to make runs for lumber and the like. I intend on converting it into a somewhat proper hot rod. I was lucky as the metal is in great shape, and so is most of the wood. The floors are gone obviously but that's almost a given. My first plan after the body is off and the stove bolt 6 is out is to convert the front end to a transverse spring and hairpin set up. do a mild 4 link in the rear....channel the body 8" or so and keep the top un chopped. Still on the fence for engine but definitely want to keep it bowtie. Please any advice or opinions are welcome. I'll post photos in the comments Thanks!
