rolling chassis

I'm looking for a chassis for a 30 model a sedan, that's not going to break
the bank.

Not going to break whose bank? Bill Gates'? You'd get a more useful answer if you gave us a price range.

Model A chassis are CHEAP compared to most other early Ford chassis.

Go here

http://www.wescottsauto.com/Tech/Fra...ram1928-31.pdf

That is a blueprint for building a Model A chassis. Price building one yourself and price out the construction materials ... and I think you will find ... that most chassis builders are very competitive price wise. They make very little $$$ ... when you consider everything.

You do NOT have your location listed ... and that will play a part in suggesting someone to build a frame ( freight costs ) ...

If you cannot find 2x3 tubing
Then ... You will NEVER find all the pieces you need for a Hot Rod ...

IMHO

sacto parts !

Drive down to Sacramento Vintage Ford, and get their parts catalog, It's about the same size as a sacramento phone book. They have everything you will need and you can actuallly SEE every part. They are actually in Rancho Cordova now. They have grown over the years and upsized their store 3 or 4 times.
