    Have a friend who because of health and financial circumstances is unable to finish his Model A project...It was his highschool car in 1961....During rebuild his circumstances changed and it went into storage for quite some time.
    29A steel; tube frame,louvered belly pan; late flathead; T-10 4 spd; Mags, quikchange,w/Buick brakes; 12 spoke mags,w/disc brakes....

    Would like to hear some comments in todays world as it may end up in the classifieds...Thanks, RDR

    That thing rocks!

    Odd combination, tube frame, no chop, flathead, quad pipes.

    But very cool.

  7. It's pretty awesome

    What ever it looks like now, it has to be restored to that look! Killer '60s Hot Rod Magazine feature car look, although the tube frame to me seems to me more like a '70s thing? I'd jump at the chance to own something like that.

    I appreciate any was his dream to build a radical flathead (he has the Merc crank,B&M blower and Vertex) powered showcar as daily driver when his world went upside down about 15 years ago...has a son but doesn't believe he'd ever finish it...I guess what I'm wondering is if there are folks who could see his vision and carry it on?? thanks again guys...

    That is the coolest A I have seen in a while. It must be the perfect rake and unchopped lid. I love it!.

    The look reminds me of my buddies car we would go school in, but it was a four banger. Love it!
