    A year ago I ventured into building a 1930 model A roadster on '32 frame rails with a 59ab flathead. About as soon as I had it dialed in with the hopped up motor and got a new seat in it, my time was done with it. I sold it and galloped on over to the Kennedy Brother's bomb factory to purchase my new project: an all original Henry Ford steel '32 roadster on an original frame. This is just the beginning but I thought I'd start a new thread born from my first thread. I will post as I can as I resurrect a my '32 in a very pre-war fashioned build, 21 stud and all.

    Good for you. I would like to see more photos. Side views would be nice if there is room to do that.

    Car is stripped and ready for metal work. Gotta do some repairs on the door, drill out the holes and rivets someone welded up on the frame and few other odds and ends. Still collecting but the project is moving along

    Been collecting parts and mocking things up. Pretty close to metal work time. Have a few rust issues to correct, parts to fit/adjust and to drill the holes back out on the frame that were welded up by the previous hot rodder. The project has kind of turned to corner into a build nicer than what I had initially planned but I guess that's what happens when you don't roll them out of a barn, right?

    Original parts are tough to get squared up at times
