My 31 is coming a long slowly but surely.http://rides.webshots.com/photo/2290626200100818727jDcRRw
I working on this one
Still under construction, but getting close.
Working on this one....'31 Ford.....rebuilt the '66 327.....frame is boxed,....dropped axle.....front disc brakes,....currently at the painters for 4 months.....
sucker drives like its on rails
Just keeping this one going
mine is what started off as truck"not no more" now it's a panel, when it get's cooler i hope to get back at it.
This pile of parts is next in line after the '49 is finished (which in turn is waiting for customers cars to get done)
Well after four years +, my Son's 29 Model "A" Tudor is complete. Not quite April but close. Just a few little items to tidy up.

Wish it was mine (I still can't find a closed car body for a reasonable price, so I'm stuck with my Roadster Pickup for the time being!)
Chop looks great Russell , Looks like it's on Mac's 6" deep Model A rails too . Graeme does great work .
it's in my avatar
Bought my 29 a runner but didnt like the workmanship,or should I say lack of.Have started all over and it now resides on a 32 chassis with a 383 which will have triple rochesters and a 700R4.Am looking forward to driving the crap out of it,summer and winter.
Love the colors. Those are the color of my "A" when i started. Especially love the painted grill shell. Sort of "deuce-ifies" it.
Not sure if this counts, but I am using a 31 cowl, and frame dimensions are from a model A. This pic is just a quick mock-up.
wow forgot about this thread here is my latest..enjoy
This is the only photo i could find of the 30 model a coupe i am doing it is alot further along now front and rear end are in and waiting for body
i am also rebuilding my 28 model a truck this is really just a tidy up build
also trying to talk dad into doing somthing with this 30 sedan, chop top maybe still running 4 banger and orginal running gear
My '29 Business Coupe that I've been dicking around on for years is actually a car again. Pre War type Hot Rod with souped up Banger. The wheels are just garage rollers. Not sure on the wheel/tire combo just yet....
Ill bite my 30
Great thread! Here's my 31. Bought last winter...rear suspension done, engine and trans mounted, working on the firewall/tunnel and floor and then go through the body including chopping another 2". Hoping to be at Bonneville 2013.
well kinda.... dont really know what to call it.
kool thread anyway.
1928 Model A Sport Coupe converted to Roadster with tons of body modifications to prevent it looking like your typical coupster.
1957 Chevy 283
Weiand WC4D 4x2 intake with Holley 94s
1939 Ford 3-speed
Torque tube, banjo rear end, shooting for a late '50's hot rod.

GLAD to see a new pic of your ride, man! Looking REALLY nice!!! You putting a drop axle up front?
Thanks! Yeah. Split '33-'34 'bones with a dropped '30's axle I'm picking up at the Revolution. Gonna thrash and get the front end done during my winter break from college which begins the first week of December.
Your ride is coming along nicely too! Post up a picture on here so we can all see it!
Still going....when I ain't sidetracked with Tri-Five stuff.
