Cool 29 Model A Sedan...The New Ride

Well it was a busy summer and I didn"t have a lot of time to do much for building or driving hot rods but winter is approaching and it's time for a new ride..I sold my little 32 pickup in the spring and then sold my 65 Riv after that and then sold my 49 chevy pickup which left me without anything cool left to drive that was finished except for my harley which I did put some miles on....I figure I can do up this model A over the winter and have a cool ride for next year....I have most of my vision complete in my head ...just have to build it....I liked a lot of the things I had on the 32 pickup so I might duplicate some of them into the sedan...the little pickup was cool but leg room was tight which should make the sedan alot better...looking forward to the build....The A is fairly solid and should make a good start...going to run a small block chevy, turbo 350, with a chevy astro van rear with 373 gears, chopped 5",channelled 4", custom chassis, suicide front end with 4" drop axle, air ride on rear and some other goodies that I collected over the past year...should be fun.

Looks like you're off to a good start. Hopefully I'll be at the same point with my 33 Chevy next spring. Hell, if you're ever down in Havre, MT you'll prolly see me driving it maybe.

Nothing cool to drive Then what d'ya call that parked by the garage door? The Model A looks like a cool project, looking forward to the build.

I clicked on your vid of your barstool....pretty wicked!!!...The A's are getting harder to find for a decent price...they range from almost free to $6500 plus depending on who owns it and what they think it's worth....I looked at several over the last year and hauled a trailer back empty for several different reasons...mostly because I was looking for a certain patina but didn't want to have to weld up a bunch of patches to ruin the look...The 29 I got for $500 Bucks and the guy delivered it...Great Score!!! and it's not all rusted out...I am trying to work out a deal on a barn find 32 sedan but not sure how it's going to play out...and it's going to cost me a lot more than $5oo bucks also but they are really hard to come by...here is a couple of pics of my bar stool...not as fast as some but just as scary to drive...70cc kids quad modified into a stool.

Default Frame Build

Well it has started...I hooked up with a friend of mine, JP from Lowwest Hot Rods and we built a frame from his design for the rear section and my design for the front which I used on the 32 and we put a frame together for the Model A...He had a frame jig set up for it so I had him weld up the perimeter frame then I took it home and started setting it up for mounts and suspension...He started putting mounts in but he had the motor sitting to low so I cut them off and made new motor mounts and remounted the tranny crossmember. I changed up the motor mounts from the 32 for I have a build theme in mind for this one and they would suit it better...still have to make gussetts and want to built a crossmember yet but I have the motor and trans in place and bolted in and llokin good.

The frame work looks pretty cool, this style always reminds me of an erector set!
