    A highboy is an originally fendered car with the fenders pulled off, at stock or close to stock ride height, no channel, usually with no chop or a mild chop.

    An AV8 is just a Model A body with a flathead V8, frame doesn't matter. I don't think 350s etc count.

    Those" etceteras " have never counted! , way back in the late 50s early 60s one of the flathead gurus here in NZ, is said to have proclaimed "ohv V8 engines are just a passing fad! " he still drives his blown flathead powered hotrod.
  17. I still drive my flathead powered 29 . Nothing beats the sound of a flathead with straight 070FB402-2122-487C-97FD-A1A2DE2F8FD0.jpeg pipes
