we're working on a 28 model a sedan build right now. working with a stock frame dropped 8 inches in front and stepped 9 inches in the rear. boxed in. I haven't been able to get a hold of an engine yet to see how everything is going to fit. we are going with a small block ford v8. My question to you is, have any of you had to push your body back farther on the frame to give enough engine bay room for an overhead valve v8? the frame is stock length and not z'd in the front.
