    I'm looking for pictures of Model A coupes on stock frames that have been Z'd in the rear. If you can specify how many inches the frame has been Z'd and what type of springs the car rides on that would be great too!

    Thanks!

    Mine has been Z'd the width of the chassis rails and runs the original spring minus 2 leaves.
    Good luck, Ron.

    55ZEPHYR- do you have any side shots of your car? We're in the same boat as deuceroadster2,
    I am curious as to how much rake the car has from a side view.
    Thanks for your time.

    This is about the best I have at the moment that show how it sits, I've put taller tyres on the back now and I think it has improved the stance a good deal.
    Good luck, Ron. 13522891_507022729501057_7588593850524768289_o (1).jpg 27244438360_24811339a9_o.jpg

    A typical "Z" of a frame is just the height of the frame rail. Depends on where you cut as to the height change because the frame tapers

    Those pics are good enough to see what I was wanting to see.
    Appreciate you taking the time to post them.
    The car has a real nice stance. Pretty much spot on, IMO.
    It's quite a bit different than essentially the same car sitting right beside it.
