    Question for the experts.
    Are the majority of these Sedans w/ V-8's sitting on a boxed A frame or do they commonly get built on a custom frame or 32 rails?

    I'm not a expert but I've seen all of the above. Mine is on a custom frame but I've seen 32 frames pinched together for A's. So it all depends on the look and stance your going for. If there's a will there's a way. I'm sure boxing a stock frame works as well.

    So you've stated that you dig stock proportioned A sedans but instead of posting one of those you post a heavy chopped and channeled one. Am I missing something?

    So I just realized this picture is actually a 1932 which not a Model A. I wonder why they stopped calling them model A's. I'm sure someone here can tell me.

    32's are also known as Model B and 18...I think that in the big scheme of New Cars keeping things Fresh and New helped with the sales tactics...
