I did a search and couldn't find anything. Please post pictures of Model A's on 1932 frames.
Love this one
All Road Kings built cars
This one is mine, 28 rpu on Duce frame rails.
my old Tudor
Tudor got traded for a late 31 roadster body
whats not to love
whats not to love #2
Here's some pictures I've saved over the years...
The only way to go.
Here's a bunch I've saved from various sources.
A couple from here.
Love this thread. How does the body sit flat on the frame since the 32 frame is not flat?
You had to make a filler piece from memory, this is an 'A' on '32' frame diagram.
Here's a coupe the fellow above sold to finish the Tudor. Before this he had another car, an 'A' roadster on '32' rails as well.
Forgot this one, another local car owned by a friend's son, his first rod.
There is something really sinister about the green grenade and Mr fords A`s with them chops and visors
my old one...
Geez Matt, this thread could end up eating more bandwidth than any other in history!
i quess im weird, but i dont like the look of anything sitting on top of the frame. i like the sides of the rails under the car.but i do think it makes the roadster body look taller.which is a good thing.im having this arguement with my son now because we just got momma a 30 tudor sedan body.
my old one
Mine has the side rails under the body for a light channel which gives it a more finished look.
Great thread idea. I think most of those cars have been in my saved for reference file for a while. The look has already spelled real hotrod to me.
29 on 32
Or the other way to go about it with a '28 '29 body is to pull the cowl sides off and pie cut the front body mounts by just a touch. (1/4" to 3/8" comes to mind) That way the front conforms to the slight upward slope at the fire wall, while the bulk of the body sits flat on the rear 2/3 of the frame rails. It allows you to drop the body a bit flatter and a bit lower than the old spacer method... My favorite.
'30 '31s look great with just a tiny bit of channel at the front to account for the upward slope.
Awesome thread! Lots of great stuff!
This is turning out good, keep it coming.
