  • 1930 Model A with 40 windshield

    Been a very very slow build, between work, kids and house poor rod gets ignored. It took about 3 hours on the shrinker stretcher and english wheel to make the patch panel to mate the two together. next side should go faster now I have a plan. I'm working from the ground up. Body is chopped 1 " cowl is raised 1".

    Any questions please ask

    I hope to get it on the road this summer.

        Slow going on the 30, It would be so much easier to just buy and bolt things on but what fun is that. Body patches are basically in, I'm working on the rear wheel wells and rear floor area. I still have hopes on having it out on the road this year.

                      I'm currently modifying the Pontiac nose. I wanted something different for headlights so I'm using 2005 Cadillac proctor beam lights in a custom housing. It all takes time, but I'm happy with the look so far. Hopefully next summer it hits the road for many miles of enjoyment.

                          The head lights will sure look cool in those housings tucked in the grill.

                            Current Progress, teh color is me looking at different options for color.

                            I have debated high beams. I don't think in NYS they are needed on a 1930 Model A registered vehicle. Anybody have any input?

                              Making some more progress, sliding rag top is installed and works great. I think that's the only thing I didn't make personally on the car.
