Here's mine- 29 coupe hot rod
Resto Rod - 1930's style
29 RPU Late 50's with an early 60's engine.....budget hotrod ( the famous "60's High School kids ride" )
I believe my 4 answers are:
c. 1960's era
b. Hot Rod and Other (Art Car/Rat/Home Engineered)
I've got two- '29 roadster p/u, hiboy on "A" rails, 16" ford steelies, '48 Merc caps forties look, just don't open the hood if your easily offended (283 chev)
'30 coupe, full fendered, stock height top, 283 w/adapter to early ford trans and '48 rear, 15"early ford wheels w/ cheater slicks & littles, Lots of louvers, kinda shooting for that 1958 SANTA ANNA drags kinda look but a little lower.will be bright orange with white wheels and underpinnings, white interior too.
Customer car that's in right now- '31 coupe chopped 3", channeled 4", big block w/ a 6/71 blower, kind of a sixties lookin' kind of thing. Might go with cragars or astros & cheater slicks, kind of a 1964 lookin' build. Mostly just trying to save it from it's previous "builder's" special touches!!!
Here's my 31. I just keep on rollin".
1931 ford model a sedan rat rod, right steer, v12, straight 8 flathead, or cadillac flathead, on the ground.....ect
1931 tudor sedan
I've owned it 40 years! I got it while in high school, still have it, gonna keep it!
I see the favorite is a 1930 - 31 hot rod coupe in the 1950 - 60 style...
Best hot rod ever built !!
'28-'29 Sports Coupe.. Not sure if I should have picked coupe or roadster, so I picked Other Open Auto.
Going to make a Coupster.. Not going to just whack off the top of the door frames.. I'm making a lip around the back end to match the body lines near the top of the doors. Capping the doors as well. I've got a ton of ideas that have been playing around in my head for quite a while now.
Is this the one with the "Olds Rocket" engine?
Early 60's era!
Hot rod/stop light to stop light drag racer!!
Coupe, '31, Hi-Boy, 50's - 60's.
Long as its a 29 it don't matter. Got a thing for 29s and it ain't getting any better. I'm now 72, so maybe it will chainge some day soon. Iceman
31 coupe 60,s style hemi chromes, slicks, chopped 34dash banjo wheel flat black for now
Closed cab truck, 1929, 1970s style hot rod
Like this one I built in 1979?
Originally the Truck was a Showtruck in the sixties but that wasn't the style back when I bought it... so I redid it into a Streetrod.
yep, both the A's, the coupe and the roadster, are getting rocket engines.
Great choice... I enjoyed your tech post on the cross-over and I think I'm sticking with Olds power with a couple of performance mods for the next one as well!
WINGNUTZ...Ooh every body else keep out, somebody call the HOTROD and CUSTOMS police...POP.
31 Tudor 60s Slammed w/fenders wo/chop flat freakin black
Did you know that it is mandatory that everybody on this board Build at least one Model A!!!
Besides... I was going to call it the "He man women haters club"... but Spanky and the Gang already picked that out and everybody else had their own such and such clubs so there... nananaaaaa......!!!!!
