Flatty Powered Model A, just how I like em
This Little Red Roadster is a true traditionally built AV8 Hot Rod.
I constructed this hot rod as if it were a young man’s transportation in the late 40′s or very early 50′s.
The frame has been narrowed to fit the proportions of the Model A body instead of pinching at the cowl thus retaining the original beautiful curves of the ’32 rails.
All parts within reason were chosen to fit this early era.
Parts were restored rather than purchased wherever possible.
All work done by seller except the machine work and assembly of the bottom end of the block (Putt Smith built).
Some parts, such as the distributor and carbs, refurbished or provided by Josh Mills @ Mills & Co.
(Many thanks for so much help and correct parts over the course of this build!) This hot rod is more Ford than Foose and is not a show pony.
It runs and drives and stops and steers very well.
Go for a ride in this video.
