    more on that 31 model a....that model a was owned by kenny krakow owned a 29 model a and a 31 model a in the 50's. him and his buddy noel mauer wanted to turn the 31 into a hot rod. the majority of the work took place in 1961 while mr. mauer was renting a barn to work out of.the 31 had a flathead out of a '50 merc at the time with a '39 ford transmission. it still had the stock rear end too with some hydraulic brakes. has a '49 merc gauge cluster too. i believe it has a '48 ford gas tank. the roof is chopped and filled and he removed the model a sunvisor. the red parts 0on it is is shot in lacquer. the flathead and tranny were later replaced with a 327 and a 3-speed. they made the '29 a show car and this little "A" was kind of forgotten about.
