    Damn,, not sure whats going on, everytime I check out this site there is another model a build thread and/ or someone else just bought an A.. Never ever liked being left in the dust so just to keep up with you hot-rodders, I just had to buy one too LOL.. Not sure if I will live long enough to build it but had to cut down on spending all my money on beers somehow..

    Yep, sure do appreciate the offer LOL,, actually a very solid body, a small amount of floor rust only, has a few dings including left side drip rail which may be a bitch to fix, A buddy brought it up from montana and then found a more complete project and I had a vacant spot in the back yard.. Actually looking forward to the build, have built a few cars over the years but never messed around with an A.. The parts gathering and dreaming process is almost as good as the finished project..

    Good Luck on the "A" build,and, as you said, locating parts is half the fun, but....enough with the negative comments on "living long enough", you got this..

    I'd love to find a nice sedan body as clean as your coupe. Nice find for sure.

    You are assuming that there will be some progress...lol.. first I have to get this house reno finished because we just had to do the down sizing thing, then I want to freshen up the 40, been engine shopping, have new frt axle and parts to go in now, maybe will just pass it on to someone who will build it, can't see myself doing anything for a couple of years and could use the funds for a real nice 350hp 327ci...if you know what i mean...

    Let me know, I may pick it up off you. I actually have a fresh 327 that needs to be put together. Brand new L79 Cam kit for it as well.
