    Depends on the type of car your building. High-boy, fenders, kind of fenders (some T's can use Model A fenders). wheelbase your shooting for, etc.

    Here is a '23T on a A Frame.
    The frame is shortened a bit, boxed, with a Z in the Back.

    I'm doin it!!!
  10. Fits like a glove...!

    I put a Stock 27 T roadster body on my stock model A Chassis and found out that everything lined up perfectly..., Steering column fit right to the stock dash and the body fit with only minor modifications...!

    You'll just have to play around the front floorboards for the pedal assembly to work..., and drill a couple of new holes for the body mounts!!! [​IMG]

    Have fun...!
