I've owned this Model A Coupe body for over a decade. Back in 2009, after the car was chopped, the car got shelved and then, subsequently, buried. Funny thing is, the car and I had similar journeys. It wasn't until September 10th, 2017 that I "woke up" and made massive changes in my life. Six days later, I found out that I was at risk for losing my eyesight. From that day on, everything, and I truly mean EVERYTHING changed. I cut out most of what didn't matter and made building the coupe a priority. Truthfully, with where the direction of the car is, now, I'm glad it didn't get built. It would've been a pretty soul-less hot rod. The plan, back in '09, was to build a 30 Coupe on 32 rails with a Y-block. That wasn't really my dream car, though. It was just something I thought was cool and there were plenty similar examples being built in 2007-11. I was following along... HOWEVER, what really grabbed my attention as a kid were 60's style hot rods. I loved that they were taking ques (and parts) from the muscle car era but cars from that era could get a little funky. I loved that... still do. Understanding that life is too short to not get EXACTLY what I want out of life, I changed directions. All that said, here we go. I picked the car up in Adiar, Oklahoma from HAMBer @coopsdaddy. I didn't have all that much money back then. I had moved to Utah from the northeast and I was saving for a wedding ring. My girlfriend (whose now my wife) had just gotten back from a month in China. She slept all the way there, through picking the body up and having a beer after we loaded it, and nearly all the way back. Haha. Shortly after the car was in Salt Lake, it ended up at Chris Davenport's shop (Salt Flats Speed Shop). It was torn down and blasted. Based one what I can tell about the car, it must have been a circle track car or a low budget hot rod. It was crudely channeled and there was evidence that a sheetmetal roof insert was screwed to the roof.
