Check the classified section on here. Did you look on craigslist? You can always find something on there.

I think you need to be a little more realistic. You are NOT going to find a Model A project for $1500 that can reasonably be saved. I think you're realistically looking at $3000-$5000 for a rebuildable project. People who have these cars know what they're worth so you're just not going to pick up a project for $1500 anymore. Maybe 20-30 years ago but not now. A 32-34 project would be an order of magnitude higher than a Model A for the same basic condition so unless you have deeper pockets you probably want to eliminate those as a possibility.

I'm not trying to rain on your parade here... just trying to add a dose of reality to your thinking.

You might find an 'A' body only at Hershey or Carlisle for $1500-$2000 but I can assure you that it will be more rot then steel. Now that the street rod rags are pushing the 'A' as the successor to the '32-'34, anyone who has a salvageable body will think that it's his pot of gold and retirement option. I bought a good and fairly rare slant windshield '31 body in 2000 at Hershey for $1600 - and resold it a year later for $3000 which was cheap according to the guy that bought it - but I was happy. Now, I would probably start at 2X+ that asking price

I agree with centerline, You won't get a 32-34 for $1500.00, and using a 30-31 Plymouth rear end won't do it either. the front end from one might work if you are building that car on that frame or are building your own frame, but not knowing what you can do, and it sounds as if your new to this game, I don't think you should start out building a frame.

$1500.00 hardly gets you anything in this hobby now days, and don't go by what you see on B&J, the prices are for really nice cars.
You might be better off finding a project that someone has given up on. it will cost more, but you will get more, depending on how bad they want to sell it.
Don't give up, but you will have to learn more on this hobby to know what it takes and what it costs. You can learn both here but be ready for sticker shock.

Well let's just put a few items out there for value:

Brookville 'A' body = $6K
TCI Stage 3 chassis = $8K
Hood, fenders and splash shields, grille and shell, running boards = $2.5K
Engine = $4k

That's a few of the 'big ticket' items for my car - the AVATAR. Add another $20K+++++ for the rest

It was best you started out easy, and not with the Detroit Deuce, at $24,00.00 for the body. And then go from there.
