I like this one.
here's mine it's AA truck frame
That's a cool roadster rustyrods.
Duck!!!, Incoming! at least its an A frame dimensionally. Well kinda -longer wheelbase.
And its not an A and it has FENDERS!!!!! JW
I just had to poke at the correct police. My next build will fit the criteria. Oh no it won't, it's a pick up. Dang.
30 sedan I'm working on
Not many frame pics. Drove it bare for about 3 years to work the bugs out. Its torn apart now for paint.
Quit Flapping your soup coolers, and get to work !!!! Chris
What book are you all referring to? I would like to find a book on what it takes to build a model A hot rod.
"How to build a Traditional Ford Hotrod". http://www.amazon.com/Build-Traditional-Ford-Motorbooks-Workshop/dp/0760309000
Pretty much the bible for building a late 40s early 50s hotrod.
A neat AV8 set up we have just finished up at Buckland Automotive.
Done 25 years ago. Just now coming into style.
Agree, the book everyone should read before building a period correct Hot Rod. However "Bluey" the chief character sits on a Deuce frame. Anyway, definitely a beautiful V8 powered Model A.
Not sure where you got that idea but "Bluey is most definitely a true AV8 with a genuine Model A frame.
Here's a link with lots of pic...scroll down all the way to the bottom:
Shame on me, you are absolutely right. On page 7 of the book Mike Bishop writes "...While I choose a Model A frame because that was what I had under my original car, we also describe the construction of a Deuce-framed chassis..."
I was probably confused when reading chapter 2 "The Frame" where they exactly describe both frame versions. Sorry, I owe you a drink the next time you come to NZ.
My wife's coupe
It's been on my radar for years.....nice Hot Rod!
Here is a picture of my roadster with original
frame and brakes.
Here is a picture with the 4 cylinder engine with a 455 olds head.
Just discovered this forum & find it great. Recently purchased a '31 roadster pickup project. It was channeled over the frame, I am having it raised to provide more room for me to fit in. Anxious to read more of this and see all the great rides.

Looks like a fun ride!
It aint a Model A either, It's a Chevy!
This coupe does it for me....
here's mine.. built in 1992.. has a kickup in the back widened to make clearance for the rumble seat. can't wait for the snow to melt in front of the garage door so I can get her out!
Here's mine, 259 Studebaker powered. It was being driven around New York as a stocker 9 months ago.
