  • 1930 Model A Extended cab 4x4. Let the cutting begin.

    It not really going to be a "RAT" but the purists are loosing they minds! I have always wanted an A truck but i just cant fit. We decided to go ahead and build one. I ran up on a good body to start with and it was on. 1200 miles round trip and it was in the shop. We will build a frame to suit our needs and use a stock A standard bed.

    A line was drawn and the pick up cab created in a manner of days.

      The frame material was picked up along with its CJ7 suspension and the fabrication began.

        Cab sheet metal was formed and rolled and screwed in place for fitment.

          Fuel tank was removed and cut and firewall flipped to make room for the V8 and HVAC.

            Frame Suspension hung. The front is locked in and the rear we will adjust as needed once everything is "in place" and the bad arrives.

              The engine was dropped of for machine work and assembled. The running gear will be a SBC, Holley Sniper, T5 and a Dana 300 transfer case with 354 axles.

                  Right freaking on guys! If you are going to cut up on like you had, the end results are worth it in spades. That is one super cool 4x4.

                  What kind of bed is coming?

                      We set the moch up engine alonfg with the transmission and transfer case. Pretty good fit. Going to set the radiator and 32 grille shell and start working our way back.
