Is that all stock Model A running gear? Are those the original A bones out back?
I like your conduit work for the subrail & structure. It has me thinking that I might be overthinking/overbuilding my own subframe on my project.
Wow, that's killer. Looking great. Can't wait to see more of this one.
Time to finish it up
cool. Did you make the nose? Looks like it's steel?
Man of few words, eh?
Looks good. I'd love to have that much shop space.
Its got model a banger with aluminum head dual carbs and a magneto
Not going to be a street car
Trying for a true racecar in late 40s style
Hood and hood sides are getting there still gotta finish the belly pan
It is steel Pat Pryor made it
Nice! Very sanitary.
Looks great! I will be following this one

Show us the equipment your using to do the sheet metal work and tell us a little about your background/training. To do that level of metal shaping this isn't your first day on the bus.
Did pat do just the nose or the whole body?
Pat did the nose he's a friend
He's around here and there but everything else is pretty basic
But the nose came out good
Equipment is not much a small brake, bead roller and shrinker stretcher
Made the hood and belly pan with just a piece of 2 1/2 inch pipe
Man this is Cool!
Hope to see it on the beach racing at the 2 annual R.O.G.
Thanks that's the plan
Cool. Its all turning out nice
That is very nice!!!! Great work and I can't wait to see the rest of it!!
That is nice and going to be killer when it is done.
I and probably a few others might just be borrowing your body framework concept in our own builds.
If you look at the 26/27 roadster land speed cars from the dry lakes in the late 1940s they used the same tubeular body Structuring. Nothing new here just recreating history.
Nice build, great to see folks doing their own work. That IS what this is all about. looks like you are doing a super job. I also like the fact that although you have a SBC sitting there, you are building a BANGER!!
Yea I would never put a SBC in anything that's a friends motor. Ford in a ford
Split the bones and made the front section of the belly pan
