    Were Vickies the only model A's with flush fitting doors?

  3. Even though some were built in Late 30, they are all considered 31 models.

    Love 'em! Always have, always will. I will have one some day, too Mine will be a black '30-'31, full fendered , dropped low as hell and decked with Buick wires in a perfect world, or Tru-Spokes in real life. Think early times and the early seventies with modern detailing and you'll have the vision...

    Your vision works for me, I also love the look of Victoria's.

    We found this Vicky a few months ago. We have the whole car but here's a shot of the body. Very complete and great foundation for a future project. They are very cool.

    I think they have a fantastic profile, but sort of look like a London Taxi from the rear.

    But yes, I would like a '32 Vicky please. Always loved the Vulcans race car, my Dad said he saw it in a junkyard once...

    This is my Vicky concept...faux-Vicky that is. 28-29 Tudor turned Vicky. Modified derriere, bit of a chop, steel roof, swoopy 30 fenders, bobbed rears, splash aprons whittled down to 2", Deuce grill, '36 wheels and caps, bigs and littles, plenty of rake.....black on black on black.....nobody steal my idea, now:D:D:D
    I loves me some Vicky....
    I WILL have this someday!

  13. [​IMG]...We never got 'em here. We knew though. I saw the first one on a cover of Custom Rodder in '76. A 2 week thrash for the Nats & it's a cover car. Exotic.

    Was the rear section from door to door one piece or is it multiple pieces welded together? If one piece, I am suprised they could form a section that large in 1930.
     
  19. There is a right & left quarter with a center section.
     
  20. Money shot!
    Its a 32 but still pretty cool.

    I'm all in with this observation except for 1. The 34 doesn't cut it. Looks like a flat back 35 Tudor. 33 was Ford's last 'sexy' Vicky. The 34 is that hottie walking your way, yet when she passes by and you glance back she's a drug addict, hooked on noassatol...

    See what I mean?

    Loved the Vickys since seeing the Vulcans' car. Built a plastic one as a kid. Like to have one now. Hope D-Russ doesn't get too excited by all this attention. Later, Carp

    Got a few more things done on this one but it's been stuck in the garage for a while. Have a couple of mini bikes and a car or two to get fixed first. The weather should be nice by then.
     
  25. OMG!!!!!!!!!! you finally put pic up that is big enough for all to see. Fellow HAMB people the build on this car is really really well done and very detailed.

    Coming out with a glass 1928/29 Model A Vicky in the spring of next year. I know glass is frowned on here but its the only way I can build the body styles I like that Ford never made and I have been in this hobby long enough to be tired of even the most popular body styles.I love traditional built hotrods,just dont like repetition.

    I believe her butt is called a bustle. Oh well, no matter the term, it's well proportioned. Later

    The Victoria was so named because during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901) the bustle - which consisted of a framework used to support and emphasize the rear of women's dresses - was popular from 1869 until it's demise ca 1905....
