Default Model A extended cab

So, we put some hours in on the newest project in the shop. It's a 10 lug dually, extended cab model a pickup. The power plant is a 6.0 and a 4l80e with some power adders in the near future!! Full air ride and what ever else we see fit!!

I did not build this frame. The owner had it built before contacting me. Wish i could have done it but it is what it is.

We are using a model a sedan and cutting it down into an extended cab

Let's get started!!

This will be cool and a fun project to do!

I hope you plan to gusset up the "Z" in the frame and make some other improvements, it looks like it leaves a bit to be desired at this point.

Yes, I do plan on cutting those pieces of crap off their and redoing them. Leaving a little to be desired is an understatement I believe. I saw pictures of this Frame being built and it was in a very nice jig and it is still not Square and the welds look like crap. There's not near enough gusseting and places and I am not really excited to put my name on work around it. So yes I do plan on changing a few things on it
