This started out as a 28/29. But I ended up changing it up using 30/31 parts to make a dry lakes modified style car with a mix of hot rod and custom. I'm trying to gather as many parts locally and from local suppliers. Keeping online purchases to a minimum and putting cash in local peoples pockets. This is my research and build thread. I sold my old truck and started to build a Model A, knowing NOTHING about the Ford Model A (or any Ford for that matter). Here are some threads full of modified info Pic Thread http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32889 Dimensions- http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=612792&highlight=model hood Drawings/Dimensions- http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=438877&highlight=model drawing Trying to keep this build under $3000 Already over this amount 4/17/12 So far I have gathered all of this in the past week (I have about $1500 left to spend) Items have been added as I go. - '28-'31 Model A frame - Model A complete front suspension and steering - '48-'52 11" Ford F1 complete front axle (for the brakes and spindles) - Model T buggy spring - Olds 215 engine/trans/drivshaft/4 barrel intake - 1930 Model A Cowl, hood, doors and radiator shell - Model T window frame - Ford Bronco 9" Rear axle - New F brake wheel cylinders, hardware, pads and kingpins - 1919-1922 Fordson Model F Gas Tank - 1940 Ford truck rims and 16x6.5 Lemans Bias Ply tires - Drop axle from the infamous Titus - Model T touring rear body section. - 35/36 rear radius rods - Ford F1 cross member - '40 Ford Wishbone - Model A wishbone - Speedway steering arms - Radius Rods mounts from Pinewood - F1 brakes, spindles and hubs - F&R shackles - F1 motor mounts - F1 trans mount - 2 wishbone mounts - Upper steering arm - 30-31 lower cowl patch panels - Rear U-bolts - 30/31 headlights - Model A wishbone - Camaro V-6 T-5 - Brake springs - F-1 shock mounts - 35/36 aftermarket tube shock mounts - F-1 pedal pads - Reverse eye front spring - 16" ribbed and smooth trim rings - 30/31 Hood - Heater- - Steel for motor mounts - Steering wheel - Front Spring perhces - Tie Bar, hood lathes, lower shock mounts - F1 spindle busing, pair - F1 brake hoses, master cylinder, hubs - 35/36 Ford Dash - 23-25 Moel T Turtle deck - 28-31 Model A headlight - Ford Hubcap - T5 S10 tailhousing - New front wheel bearings and seals. - New front drums from the rear of a Ford Budget F1 drum replacement NAPA part number 440-1455 - 40 Ford V8 hub caps - Superbell steering arm - V8 Hubcaps - Cork for seals - 2nd set of F1 brakes - two 40 Ford wheels - '32 Ford Radiator Shell _ '32 Ford Grill insert - tubing and flat steel - 35/36 Ford Driveshaft for headers - 36 Ford Dashboard Waterfall - S-10 9 1/8" Clutch kit - '36 Ford waterfall, gauges and ash tray - 27 Ford Stanchions - 28/29 headlight bar - Offy vlave covers - Offy 4 barrel intake - 65/66 Mustang radiator - BLC 682-J headlights - 2" upsweep in front - 9" Kick up in back - 2" channel - 2.5" stretched hood - 16x0 tires in front, 16x5 in back. - reverse eye super low front spring with 3 leaves removed - 39 Ford front spring de arched and springs added -Napa 7738 upper radiator hose.
