Model a on 32 frames would really be nice
There are a couple floating around the HAMB.. I'll try and gather what I have.
Why would anyone do that?
I didn't worry too much about the deuce rails but there are a couple of those in the pictures below.
If I'm not mistaken, didn't the PPE body come from a coupe?
There are some pictures of a blown sedan here. Maybe it would actually counts as a double blown sedan.
How could I forget..
^^ Just in case you wanted to know more about this sweet coupe.
TexasSpeed, do you know who owns the surf green model A you posted?
I drew a poster using that car for reference, and I'd like to find out more if possible.
Ahh.. The owner is also the owner of California Hot Rods. He's got a couple other rides as well but I don't know his name.
If you click on "Services," you'll see the same A coupe. Owner's name apparently is Mike Smith? I'd shoot them an email and try to find out.
I appreciate it.
This is officially a Chevy 5 passenger coupe.
It seems that 18" American 12 spokes become almost manditory with blower installation...
Here's 2 Coupes out of Buffalo NY, pics taken at our indoor Old School Show in March. Black one is a Model A the gold one is a 31 Chevy, both fresh built blown engines...
HAHA! That's Funny, It sure seems that way though! They do look Badass on a Blown Car...
Anybody running bias plys and a blower,maybe a coupe like mr fords,or bass's
Here's some more for you... I found them in my archives, The blue coupe, I took at the Bowling Green NHRA Hot Rod Reunion this year. The Red Flake Coupe i took at the 2010 Jalopy Drags in Beaver Springs Pa...
Oh hell yes. Quinton, what are you up to???
5wcoupehunter. i know ive commented on this car before, maybe saw it in primer, but again the car has an awesome look, absolutely perfect!
Thats rad. I like the transparent valve covers.. Never seen those.
That full fendered coupe is just what i was looking for,i think a sbc looks just right and fits the build date i was looking for,dont think its a five inch chop.
Hey Brent,i have been really busy with 3 kids,just trying to decide what i want,i sold all my hemi stuff because in the last few years a few coupes that look 99% like mine have been builtjust as mine would have,i have been thinking about building it with a period blown sbc,its just a motor that i know and lets face it if your going to drive them hard you should be familier with them,im just having a hard time picturing my car with bias plys and a blower,thats the one thing i wont change is running big and little firestones,i am also considering just selling out and buying a 33-34 coupe that i can run a hood on and hide a little sbc(dont like a hood on a coupes on 32 rails) or just buying a 74-77 ford bronco.
Any progress on the coupe?
Here's another one for you i recently came across...
Whos green coupe wIth 6 carbs and cage?
