About five years ago, a local street rod shop brought us a built from leftovers Model A body that I'll call "unitized"... fenders welded to car. I helped the metal work all I could and did the mud deed on it. It was originally a five window. It was murder creating a flowing line around the perimeter of the top opening that looked valid from most angles. I'll see if I can dig up some pics from the 33 job also, that was just a couple years back.

See how overlapping doors are still a new thing to me? They will be interesting. Does metal sit against metal around the edge or is there some rubber in between?

Sort of but not really relevant because of the design change, heres a small bunch of pics I put on a blog to show how I used available panels with easily fabbed pieces to repair and beautify the crusty rocker of a 33-

An interesting new toy relevant to this monster project arrived so hang loose I got one more. Maybe you spotted it already.



Welp... sorry if it reeks in here but I feel much better. Regularity is golden. In bodywork posts, I reckon.

Hey don't blame me for your fits of self motivation, it was just rainy yesterday. Thats as far as I wanted to go with 123Yorky so you're off the hook now. Red one has roof line like in that chopped edit you already had. Count your blessings and enjoy all your projects in due time.

Uh-oh, the color took root! Its just what was on my web grab but I do know of a good green. Boy that red looks like poo. Crayons might be more realistic.

I like the green's roof too, and it is stock height just using the four door sedan angle laid down slightly.

The side molding, window trim and shaved gas cap and lock cylinder, and bumpers would all be choices to define the look but if you ditch everything it starts looking like a wooden toy. In that red side view anyway.

I could see what other colors the green will turn to with the hue slider. The red had to be on top so we lost detail.

Is the thing at the rocker going to be bright trim or a running board, do ya know?

My input is this- no chop, fix roof hump only. Chop labor may not buy enough looks improvement because its a nice look already. Think about it- how many chopped 40 Fords do you see? Mmm-hmm, came with a good roof line. No chop means you could keep the classy window chrome, or part of it, if you want. Keeping chrome side trim would look good with that and if you find that you need to make some bumpers...

OK OK stop stop stopping... but yeah... I paint or toss everything excess when I do one, but the euro look ain't working on the York peppermint patty. We should try it with trim choices and skimpy bumpers in different colors and could play with the chop amount and stuff. Points to ponder. Still raining.

Yesterday I tried a Vista Cruiser lid on my GP to see if there was a funeral coach there but upchucked a little before I could delete. Nope! I have not liked any photo edit mods that I've tried for my car. I do need to see how a Buick GSX front spoiler would be on it.

Well, crap I did make a very slightly chopped green one that I posted along with an unchopped. They looked same. Red chopped one lays right over your old edit and may be a bit much depending if your going for that slam look or not with it.

Not going for the sled slam look. Just a cool look, be it chopped or not.
Lay down the back window is a for sure mod since day one.


I may chop an inch, inch and a half.



No stainless trim. All sold off.


Still considering running boards or not.

Pugsy I just like your new avatar. Hope my efforts help you more clearly define what to do when you go can back at it some day soon. Unlike me, going into this Model A job. Mind f I ramble?

Dad is a pretty good Model A reference resource actually, he was there. His first car was a nice four door Model A which he shocked Grandpa with by whacking the top off it just as soon as he brought it home. I'm not as sure where to start. Fact-finding mission I guess.

I stuck my head inside the blue one Friday and just soaked it in for a minute or two, and what I noticed right away is that the Cat job definitely substantially changed the way I see rusty old cars. I found myself wanting to build not a cage but an incorporated and discreet inner structure for the body. Because thats what I would want.

With the 33, I started a little initiation ritual inspired by natives and trees. After the job is in and apart, and theres a plan, and I stand ready for the first cut.... when nobody is looking... I briefly lay a hand on the car and ask permission. Then, acknowledging it's experience and assuring that I am a good guy bringing new life... I start the tool to mask a sniffle. Success has followed thus far.

Somewhere here I made reference to "wood-reinforced" bodies and while what I meant was "cars which have wood in their bodies", it was pointed out that the wood is just to tack interior to. While that can be held as truth, it sidesteps the fact that a C channel of sheetmetal, empty, will crush and kink and twist much easier if not filled with closely fitting good quality hardwood inserts as found in B pillars on early Fords. Just saying... tubing where wood was and across the roof.



Brian, glad you found me. I did announce this thread on the daily thread but don't expect everyone caught that. I can litter this one with pics to my heart's content. As can any of you.

Thanks! I digress... I grabbed a red 48 truck pic and some of your cab pics yesterday. You took out a slice of lower cab in addition to chopping, correct? I started to start something on it but didn't have answers and figured you know to just ask, if you want to play pix with your project. So I didn't.

I think he made a pretty good pick too, that ancient Chrysler has some cool shapes on it. Most folks couldn't see past the existing roofline and might pass over the rod potential.

That being said, we all know the frugal truth... somebody nearby wanted it out of the yard so he hauled it off and only charged a dollar.
