Default "A" Basket Case

Well, is sold my 28 A sedan cause i just wasn't into it. I really wanted a open wheeled hot rod. I came across a ad in a local paper for a 30-1 sedan body. I went, looked, bought, sold, kept some parts, went back and bought the rest of his parts. I sold some more, by now i'm money ahead. Went to a swap meet and bought this 29 coupe out of the back of a truck for $1500. By the time i figured it all up, i have about $500 in it after all the wheeling and dealing. YEAH!! As of know i'm about $1500 back into it as it sits.

Got a ol Mordrop axle:

A spring and crossmembers:

Frame to be:

and now:

I swept the frame rails in the front 4"s and kicked up the rear 12. I am running spring over axle on frt and rear. I'll be using a pair of 36 rear rods out back as well. I have it channeled 3" and planning on chopping it 4. I found a set of 40's 16's and bought some 7.50's and 4.50 Firestones. Ought to have the rake. Engine is going to be a mild cammed 350 with a 4 Strommy Weiand set up.
The Dudes like it. LOL

Nice grab! I am always on the look out for a Model A coupe too, but don't have your good luck. Good luck to you and keep on tinkering.

That's a good looking project and you can't beat the price!
Love the pic with the boys and it's good to see you fired up about a project again.

Bonehead told me when I got my model A kit you're not supposed to take the parts off the parts tree until you're ready to use them!

Very cool man! Nice choice of tires and rims too. Might wanna hold off and do the chop at the end. Looks good without.
