1931 Ford Model A Tudor Hot Rod Project, part 1

Walking thru a local swap meet I saw this straight model A Tudor in the corner of my eye.

I was really there to check out some motorcycle parts but…there is was.

Spending the early part of it’s life as a postal delivery car in North Dakota’s Badlands it had been enjoying a very dry climate. It was stored for decades until the previous owner bought it in 1991. It was then stored indoors until yours truly became the custodian.

Check out this quarter panel…other that being very straight, there is ZERO rust. Even the paint under the fender is instact.

So other than the fact that my welder will be bored, why do I need this car?

Cowl Porn. Again, ZERO rust. How refreshing!

So yeah, it followed me home….and I found a motorcycle tool box for twenty bucks!

One great reason is that everybody should have a hot rod. Unlike an original restoration, you have completely free hand to build and create whatever YOU want.

And the most motivating factor of all:  A ten year stretch of hot rod withdrawals!! There is only one kind of medicine for this!

Let’s get busy!
