UPDATE! It's been nearly 5 years since I have updated this thread. I've been working on other cars and projects but this one never left my mind for a minute. We went to The Race Of Gentlemen 2016 in New Jersey and I decided I've procrastinated long enough on this car. The Ultimate goal is to be accepted and run this thing on the beach. The first couple pages of this thread might have some outdated information to the current plan, but might provide some entertainment anyway! I had this idea of building it in two stages on a stock chassis first, but that stock chassis is on the road under another one of my A's now, so it's straight to the AV8. It will include parts like this: -1946 Flathead V8 -3 spd trans -1941 Merc spindles, split wishbone (Maybe not split now...) -1946 Ford coupe brakes on all 4 corners -banjo rear axle closed driveline -short '46 rear radius rods -16"x4" early Ford solid wheels -5.50 front, 7.50 rear Firestone deluxe champion tires -'32 original grille and shell -F1 steering box -Model A axle Dropped for a total of 4" drop -'46 Lincoln twelve steering wheel -Walker rad -Edmunds 2 carb intake -Stromberg 97's -Edmunds heads -etc etc The major choice here is between a Model A frame or a '32. I'm leaning towards the Model A frame with an F1 crossmember. I have both and time will tell. Here is the start to the original project and a good idea and stories of where the parts came from. ITS A MUST SEE!!!!!!!!!!!! http://jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=555228 So here is the start to the original thread, before it turned in to a build thread: Well we all know this situation. We have more projects then we need, more parts stashed then we'll need likely use, but we keep looking for more. Most of us here have it and its a sickness... here's what my problem got me into! Its a 30/31 Roadster that a guy had stashed away for the last 14 years. He realized he's not going to finish the car so he posted it for sale. I went to check out the roadster and decided to bring it home. Here is a shot I always like to get You can see his Model A coupe up on the hill Here is his finished car and you can see the front of the roadster down in the building In the back of the building he had an original '32 frame with K-member, pedels and even has the cross shaft from the mechanical brakes! He had a couple axles on it so it would roll, and an SBC sitting on it. Here is my buddy Jeff getting ready to pull the motor off it So I bought the body without the Model A chassis, so its on my body dolly at home in my garage Its not the best body, but its certainly not the worst either. I think it looks better in the pics! I'm going back after work tommorrow to pick up the rest of the parts and the 1932 Frame. Looks like I have a new project...!!!!
