1930 Ford Model A

It has been an up & down year for show car enthusiasts, lucky if I have 200 K on the “A” since May. I have been able to get to a few shows with 6 in total perspective shows I would have liked to attend, being rained out, or at the very least, rain on either end of the trip, so needless to say it has been deemed “The Garage Queen” this year.

I have managed to “shake down” the ride a little bit and to date have found the car to be an excellent build, this shared by anyone who has viewed the car so far!

This “all steel” car, built by Brian’s Auto Body (for his personal use) features a 350cu. in., 700R4, with a 3.73 Bronco rear, Heidt’s front, coil overs, disc brakes all around.

It also features a 3″ chop & 1″ roof lower, doors have been lengthened 3″ for easier access in & out and integrated “into” the body, power windows, custom roll pans, side engine covers, integrated gas filler and cap, custom tail lights, with ’32 Grill, ’34 door handles, and a flip down front license plate cover to hide the plate for shows! Very extensive detailing on the body, fenders, and a two tone paint scheme makes the car stand out from the rest.

I expect to make a few subtle changes in the future, BUT very limited, as this car has been so tastefully done by Brian, that any more radical changes would surely destroy what has been created here so far!! The car is pure and simple, and should provide many years of trouble free “cruisin” !

    I looked this car over from top to bottom and I tip my cap to Brian for a job well done. As an old retired bodyman, I am pretty fussy and this car has no flaws.
