    Hey guys I have once again called on much needed help from my local hambers.....Im going to look at a 31 coup tommorow and I need help on a general price range and I thought who better than my boys to let me know how much this car should typically run....Its a 31 coupe, great 4 inch chop, 3 inch channel, very very great body...only one lower cowl panel ever needed alredy installed w/no other rust. No glass with car. Original wood in car still in great condition. Boxed model a frame z'd with buggy rear/4 link. Narrowed 9inch included and mounted to frame. Front suspension done with brakes mocked up. No steering box....buick nailhead and dynoglide tranny included with motor mounts already installed. subframe of car done but no floors yet....just junk mock up wheels included mismatched. (no wiring, steering, floors, driveshaft, wheels/tires, glass, brakes only mocked, worn out radiator, motor really only mounted to frame not even close to running no headers waterpump etc., practically no interior) Please help guys im going to look at the car tommorow and need some advice. I see just nice bodies going for crazy money anymore...and this body needs nothing. Please let me know what you think....opinions would be great. thanks alot in not afraid to ask and see what you guys think a car like this would/should go for!!!! Please help thanks Isaac

    Depends on your area.10-12 for a stock running A around here. I know of a chopped '31 pretty much running with a SBC that was 12K and a similar but unchopped '31 Chevy that also was 12.

    It is hard to say what you can get a model A for. As low as 2500 and as much as you can afford. I picked my coupe up for 500 but it was a special friend price good luck.

    that's really hard to say with out pictures but from what you have said i would say any wheres from $4000-$8000.that's a big gap but you will just have to see what kind and how good of work has been done.what some people call fabricating others call a hack job.good luck and have fun.
