    Bought this as a roller, built an aluminum body for it and added some hop up parts.

    No, I just used the app "Snapseed" on my iPad. Just two clicks, one to change the pic to B/W and another click to Drama and this is the result :)

  23. To the best of my knowledge no one makes an adapter to mate a 4 cylinder Chevy II to a Model A transmission. I have had a 4 cylinder Chevy II (actually a 181 Mercruiser engine) in my Avatar since the seventies and also have a Model A so I would have probably noticed. Since mine is a ’32 I was able to use a standard adapter designed to adapt a SBC to an early Ford transmission. The Model A unfortunately is a whole different story. They used to (and maybe still do) make an adapter to mate a Ford Pinto 4 cylinder to the stock Model A transmission. I was never very impressed with this conversion. You should be able to find information here and in the fordbarn archives on the Pinto conversion. I would leave the original engine and transmission in the Model A (and maybe add a littlel speed equipment) but if I was forced to make the conversion I would use a standard speed shop adapter to mate the Chevy II (I would recommend the 181 GM Industrial engine) to the early Ford V8 (’32-’39) transmission. Then I would make brackets for the motor mounts, wishbone, pedals and rear transmission mount. Definitely doable but just not as easy of a conversion as the ’32. It is nice to do a conversion where you have too much room between the fan and the radiator.
