I am gathering parts to put together my Model-A special coupe. It will be a bare bones fenderless car on 32 rails, Y-Block powered with 3 carbs, and a 5-speed. I need a guesstimate of how much these cars weigh so I can figure out how much power to try to build and how strong my transmission, clutch, and rearend need to be. I'm not building a top fuel dragster, but I figure if I'm going to build a hot rod, it needs to at least cover the 1/8 mile somewhere in the 7's at least. I mean, who wants a slow hot rod?
