About time you updated! Those east west finned rocker covers make it look like a Y block to me.
That's one bitchin' coupe!!!
cheers guys!! im super excited to get the car back into gear now, the best part is i get to do it with people i consider good mates!
small update, the ranchy is more or less done for now, so busy back into the coupe. getting through re doing the floor at the moment.
i think it looks like trouble no silly deadlines but aiming for the street nats held at bendigo next year if they will let me in! ha ha
Damn that coupe is bad ass
This is sick - keep the updates coming you are doing some nice work on some awesome cars
That's one great Coupe, keep us in the loop!!
Interesting story and a nice coupe. Good to see how it has evolved. We could do without all of the ha ha though.
It all gets a little annoying.
awesome coupe, lots of wallpaper pictures in here lol
shit another long ass time in between updates!
i dont get on here much these days, but i thought id update this to keep track.
The coupes slowly progressing, and last week it finally copped its first coat of primer. Since the last update, ive basically re worked the entire body, although most mods will go un noticed by the untrained eye, unless you really know your model A fords. The doors are now flush fitted instead of over lapping, and i made an outer sill much like a 32 ford, instead of the lower body line being a part of the door, its now the sill. The car now has drip rails like a 34, the roof is reshaped and smoother up more like a 32 and also has a cowl vent. The top of the cowl is peaked and reshaped to kinda mimic the cowl vent and the 32 grille shell.
It sure was great to finally wheel the car out into the street and check out the proportions! Check out the comparison between it and my mate curtis grimas coupe, both improved A models on 32 rails but worlds apart.
Frek'n f@ck .... that sonofa'b#tch looks mean. Beautiful work sir.
That coupe is just too tuff!!! Love it!
Cheers guys! Finally making some progress, cant wait to get the next stage happening
Will definitely stir a few up once it hits the streets, this was the first time in a few years itd ventured further than outside the shed
I saw it on intagram but it's good to see it in a bigger screen. Killer work, I love what you've done to the roof insert as well.
great to see progress Sean, about time!
Good to see some progress on it Sean
