    Mark, you just have to crawl out from under that rock once in awhile. Highboy A's on A frames are cool!
     
  5. Hahaha! /\ /\

    I agree! I've spent too much time under rocks these past few lean years.

    Thanks for the motivational ribbing!

    Really nailed it!

    New 32 frames don't do it for me... however if you happen to find a 32 moredoor with a V8 I'd help you put the Roadster body on it!

    Me, too. Also, any advice on leaning the windshield pillars (don't guess you could really call them stanchions) back on a Cabriolet/Coupester? I figure a pie cut somewhere, just not sure how to handle the arc on the windshield frame atop the cowling.....................
     
  17. I can't stop looking at this thread...

    These are awesome!

    I'm looking for more early 60s highboys because that's what I'm looking to build.
     
  18. I need to see more like this.

    Here is my roadster I recently picked up. Working in it to make it feel more like mine, but only improving mechanicals and not changing the look of the car. Roadster and sedan both on stock Model A frames.

    I absolutely love that roadster! The top and frame aprons are just spot on! It could only look better in my garage! Congrats on a great score!

    I love model A's of all kinds and the HAMB has thousands of threads on A's. But this is a specific thread about " MODEL A
    ROADSTER HIGHBOYS ON MODEL A FRAMES"!
    It's realy not that hard to understand.

    Some people don't care about the topic of a thread as long as they can post a picture of their car....

    This is a great thread! I used to think that Model A highboy roadsters had to sit on '32 frames to really look right.
    I was wrong. Many of the cars here are truly inspirational. Keep 'em comin'. Thanks!
