    Such a nice car! Maybe I missed it but why was the engine pulled? Are you making a change? Detailing? Other?

    That black 59a is the engine I put in it, that's just a photo of it before I painted and dual carbed it prior to installation.
    Oh, and thank you..

    I Have to agree with everyone above. the chop, stance and wheel/tire combo make that car look perfect. I also am a fan of stock Ford colors. I have always been a fan of that 2 tone grey.

    Man this car is perfect in every way!
    Nice job!
    I looked twice and may have missed it, how much was the chop?

  10. I would really like to buy a stock model A some day and do this to one. I'd really like a 28-29 closed cab pickup, no chop though, but if I ever do it I'd be open to any body style. Your's is cool!

    Very nice, I like it a lot! I have been looking for something similar to yours to buy for a while now. I will keep looking even harder now...

    wow ! got to have the full run down on that perfect ride.
    Having read the full thread im so far seeing 3 inch chop drop front axle.. and I can see its on 16 inch steels with 700 16s rear ..

    Now im gonna have a guess here that the rear is on a T spring since it looks like the old spring in front of the bench, 40s Ford juice brakes all around, front spring stock reverse eye, 59ab with 39 box is the rear stock A or can I second guess the rear end is maybee V8 rear with a high arch A spring with a chassis extension ?

    Ref the front wheels and front end stance. are those 600 x 16s ?

    sorry fr all the questins, when you see a model A with a perfect chop and perfect stance yoy got to ask as many questions as you can.. Its a beautifully subtle car, PERFECT.. to my eye.. Thanks for posting.. hope you can answer some of my questions ..
