I like the new rails.
Just getting started... 1929 Model A Special Coupe!
29 Tudor, 52 Flathead, 9inch chop, 35 ford 16"spokes, Firestone Classics - a ways from roadready...
before and after
Here's mine. It's a little further along than these pics. Belonged to my grandfather....he bought it back in the 60's.
heres my new project
Got any new pics?
Heres mine I picked up this winter, Im gunna build it full fendered cuz it is soo clean it would be rude not too
Mine's getting there... Made the shock brackets today, they are modified F-1's.
trailing arms located and rolled out for some pics. my block should be back from the machine shop Wednesday
Just starting on a 30' coupe. No pics yet.
Glen what are you intentions with that sedan, that is a beefy roll cage...
I'm collecting parts to build a '29 Model A RPU/ Modified.
getting close, too!
I plan to drive it with the gas pedal. i am building a pretty wicked BBC, a th400 and it has a 4.11 posi. I wanted some protection because it sits so low (for me and the gas tank). It will definitely see some friday night track time and also be driven on the streets of Phoenix and I havent figured out which one is more dangerous.
I've got parts of a 30 tudor, that was converted into a tractor, that I'm trying to make into something. Right now I'm trying to work around the missing parts, and collecting more parts. I've got several cameras, but not one of them work, so I don't have anything to show you for the time being.
I just got this a few weeks ago. Gathering parts and some ideas. This will be on 32 rails ,unchopped and I am thinking as-is, not stripping the original paint and patina.
Building a '28 Model A High Boy Roadster Pickup. Started with a A&F fiberglass body--but the cowl is junk so I'm using a real Cowl welded to a new subframe from brookville. Then I'll use the fiberglass doors and the rear of the body. Shortened up a repop steel Model A bed to 48". Running a '52 Mec. engine with a 4 speed (out of mid 80's Fords were 4the is overdrive and shifter sits on top of trans.) hooked to a '46-'48 Truck open center section banjo rearend. Don't have any photos right now but hope to post a few later when the weather warms up.
Does this count?
I just picked this up Sat.... Already have a frame, 9" rear end and motor/trany....
That looks like a MUCH better start than the other body. Good going Jay!
Thanks, I'm learning the way....
Here was the find....
Here's what mine looked like a week ago when it was raining. I need to find another big block Chrysler to stuff back in her. I may run fenders on it this time around, I don't know.
Does the one in my mind's eye count? I build it up and tear it down all day long and dream about Her every night.
Define jealousy ....
It's changed a bit since the last time I posted in this thread (12/06)
damn, you do some awesome work.
i checked out your "hot rod pics", most impressive.
i like the shovel springer bike.
A little over a year one of those rust free stored sedans 5.0 HO, T-5 , 67 stang 9 inch . 3 inch chop . boxed frame
I've been driving this '31 coupe for 3 years; it's been painted and upholstered for two, but they're never really done, are they?
The sedan belongs to my son; he just recently got it on the road. It's a '31 Murray body town sedan with the sun visor added. Since the pic it's been flamed in green. Still needs interior and front door glass.
i'm restoring a 30 model a roadster. decided to get a after market frame with a 4"kick in back. will use a 327" with a m-21 trans. 8" rear with coil overs. i'm at the point of installing the rear end on the frame. sorry i have no pics yet but hope to this week before i do anything. i want to doc everthing i do so other people can learn from my mistakes,me being brand new to the world of hot rod building.
came across a rust free 29 tudor been disasambled for a full original resto, everything new or rebuilt. Funny thing, It ain't going back together that way. I should have a lot a lot of parts to unload when I get finished with it.
