This is what I started with:

and this one...
Before and After 2.5 years later!
Bare A model frame, 28 cowl, 2x door skins, RPU body section (repop)
4 1/2 years later
1930 Model A Fordor...Started w/body, built frame (6" front Z and 18" rear kick), 3" channel, 6" chop, 454 BBC...about 85% done (9 months into build)
I started with nothing and still have most of it left.
I started out with this street rod, with a grey 'suedo' interior, late model bronco seats, Toyota overhead lighting console, grey plastic with sunglasses compartment, Toyota floor console, grey plastic CD storage and cup holders & 13" wood steering wheel;
and ended up with my kustom;
I started with this and it looks like this now.

Owner took the wheels off the front and the drums sank up about 5" in the dirt.
Here are the most recent pics of it... I still have a lot to do, but I've enjoyed it a lot also over the past almost 5 years now . Once I get something else together I plan to strip it back down and completely redo it.
This is what i started with, best i don't post where it is now - i am just adding a 3" filler to strecth the roof after whacking 8" off the top. It is different and on the extreme side and i'd rather wait present a more finished product.
I am just using the cab, maybe the hood and grille - creative as i am i just couldn't figure how to customize the wrecker boom and had to cut that loose along with the frame etc. It was an agonizing decision.
from this.............to this
Then it looked like this-
And THEN this happened-
