That is a great story. I look forward to seeing the car back together. It is one great looking ride. I hope that you keep the burnt orange paint!
Pretty cool story, I'm sure you've laid your hands on it and wiped a tear from your eye thinking how long it has been, finally came back home.
What a great story.
Another vote to return it to what it was in the old photo. Thanks for sharing a great story, you made my day
Thanks for sharing the picture from back in '67. That is a great looking Model A. I saved the picture for a future build. Traditional Hot Rod all around. I will follow the build on this one, expecially if it is going back to like it was when Black.
14 year difference? Props to your mother !!
Great story, congrats to you and props to the nephew for calling you and letting the deal happen.
Congrats on getting back a piece of your history! Look forward to seeing this one come together.

Great story! The car Gods are looking down on you for sure!
Way cool that you were able to bring it back home! Hope your brother is still around to enjoy the build with you. Memories like that just never go away do they! I bet in your mind when you got it home you could still here and feel of the ride you took to school that day way back when! CONGRATS!
Very cool story. Kudos to your cousin for realizing that it meant something to you and making the effort to let you know about it. Enjoy it!
Very cool Congrats!
My current project - Scout gasser - was also the one that started it all for me. I saw it in the 1973 Hot Rod yearbook back when I was an impressionable young man of 11. The truck went on to become somewhat of an urban legend around these parts and it has always stuck with me. As fate would have it, It crossed my path when I was old enough and financialy stable enough to do something about it. Good thing too as I'm sure it was on it's last life not likely to survive any further moves or additional neglect.
great story and real cool car! thanks for sharing
Outstanding, I love it when karma goes full circle. Hope you do a build thread and share the joy.
Very cool story!
congrats bro, thats a great story and will be a greater car! now go build it
That's fantastic! I love stories like this. What's the plan???
Fantastic story. It's gotta feel great having that car back in the family. Love the old and new pictures.
Looks the 44 years have been rougher on you than the coupe. Just kidding man.
Hope your brother is still around to share in this.
