well, I don't know if a model A frame will fit under a '34. most people would ither make the correct sized frame out of 2X3 boxed square tubing or use a stock type frame. Speedway motors sells '34 rails, you can build off them

If you don't have the '34 frame or can't find one cheap, I'd definitely go with matt's idea of a fabricated frame from 2x3 tubing. I think you'll end up with a cleaner look and you can design it to suit the cab/bed channel as well as ride height, engine mounts, trans mounts, rear end mounts and whatever front suspension you are going to use.

If you have a peek at my journal you will see I have made a chassis from 4X2 X1/8 RHS for my 34. There is a pic of the chassis drawing I submitted for registration here on the journal but I will tell you what I did, I got a drawing from westcotts for a real 34 chassis and marked the places where a dimension changed. As the ford chassis has a bow under the body area I did not want I simply took the measurement at the rear of the chassis and the cowl edge and joined them. Doing it this way meant I only had to cut three faces of the RHS and weld the rails back together after bending them to close the gap in four places. The other thing I did was to make a higher kickup to sit the rear down lower, you can also do the same at the front but try it out first as zedding the front dead ahead of the cowl will drop your front four inches. Hope this helps.

Cheers from Australia

Rob
