    I bought this and transformed it. Guy called it a 1929. Not sure what they were going for.

    Not sure. Rear quarters was 1933 Dodge, front axle Model A, rear end 8" Ford. That's the parts I used. The roof was a 280 Datsun and not sure on the cowl. It had door knobs with skeleton keys.

  10. Sure looks like a car that was being built in South Kortright New York about five years about.
    Your parts list sounds like what the builder told me he used. I used to see it on the way home from work. If it is the car I can stop on the way home from work, and check on the cowl.

    He is a nice enough guy but I never understood what the Hell He Was Thinking!

  15. Good to see you here Jonathan, welcome. I've been subbed to your channel on Youtube for quite awhile. I'm enjoying the Model A with Cadillac engine series.

    If you see him ask him what the hell he was thinking for me too!! This ended up in the NC Mountains, guy I bought it from had no clue of the history. There wasn't much there, but it was a start I guess.

    It musta been rear-engined when you got it. 10,000 miles?
     
  20. Are there bolts or threaded rod welded to the ends of the spindles, with nuts welded in the hubcaps?

    If so that is the car.

    Yes with jag hub caps
     
  25. He had a 8BA Flathead in the car someone gave him Tattersfield hi-rise intake to put on the engine.
    The intake had a non-removable breather in the fuel pump stand.
    He was going to take a hole saw to the intake so he could put oil in the engine.

    I to talk him out of that.
