Took these a few weeks ago . . . this little rod is really staring to grow on me.
Sold this black one one a few years ago. Miss it.
There are a lot of others here I like but this is MY "Favorite".
Just got the 31 coupe
but here's both
mine, but I'm bias!
Put together very well.
What's the story on this one.....with so many A's ending up on 32 frames, I'm really starting to like A's on A frames!
^^^it is pretty tasty.
Spent a couple of days in the garage last week polishing & waxing my Dad's Coupe:
Nice coupe Muttley. What are the details, and whats up with the top?

This style is my favorite look. HRP
My Dad bought it just under three years ago, it was bone stock. Since then a rebuilt Four Banger was installed along with juice brakes, a dropped axle & reverse eye spring up front and de-arched spring in the rear. The front tires are 5.50's, the rears are 7.00 16 Firestones. I re-wired the entire car with the cloth covered stuff and converted it to 12 volt. The previous owner had the top done and covered the roof all the way to the rain gutters because he said the paint was bad on the sides. That and the alternator are the two things I don't like about the car. I put a call in to Powermaster a while back and they told me they are working on the Model A version of the alternator/generator so that should be fixed soon. Someday maybe I'll be able to convince my Dad to rip the vinyl off the top and replace it with the stock style, the paint on the decklid, visor and rear of the roof is worn through anyway so it would probably look/match just fine.
Nice car. Most people probably wouldn't even notice the roof. It just struck me weird that the top had been covered like a Tudor. That's the look I'm going for on my coupe. Not the top, the overall vibe. Looks great, good job!!!
Here's mine. Just getting finished now....
I believe I saw this at Lonestar a few years ago. I fell in love at first site. I have pictures of it somewhere, so kickass!
Contrary to popular belief there is a small yet vocal percentage of us that prefer the sedan over the coupe...I have to admit there are some beautiful coupes that have been posted. HRP
This was my old one. Sold it last year.

Here's mine. I've hesitated to post this because it does not match the workmanship of so many of these cars. I've had this car since 1958. Most of the work was done by myself and my friends when we were 13 and14 years old. Our welding machine consisted of a cutting torch and coat hangers. I have since gone over some of the welds for safety's sake. As kids we started with the original banger and graduated to a 265 chevy. Never got to paint--did get some "body work" with screening and the new wonder--bondo. Great fun in the early 60's. The car sat in my parent's garage for some 50 years and a few years ago I decided that I needed to get back to my chopped and channeled coupe.
Now it's mostly the same car improved some. It's powered by the ultimate banger--a turbo charged Drake Offy coupled to a 39 ford transmission hooked to a Model A Halibrand quickie. That's me in my avatar in 1958 stripping the car down. The car has aged better than I have.
