Default A RPU of my own!!!

Well I finally pulled the trigger on a roadster pickup. I picked it up in early July, and I haven't seen a project A in such solid shape in a very long time.

She's a 1928, was a Phaeton. That's okay, I planned on stretching the cab anyways, so I'll be adding the quarters and back panel onto what is already there. I've unfortunately got some really nice T rear fenders with it, so I'll be needing a good set of A rear fenders. I've got a 1967 283 with Power Pak heads, which should move the little bugger along just fine. I plan on a dropped axle axle and I've got some ideas up my sleeve for the rear suspension and some other trick things on the rest of the project. It won't get started for at least a year or two, no rush

I'm envious when I see some of the project material that others find like this. We never see such solid and very complete stuff for a start. I hope I'm able to follow this to completion. It should be intertaining and fun build for both builder and us watchers!!!

Yeah, that thing is solid! So what was the dollar damage? That wouldn't be cheap around here.

Now that I take a closer look it appears to be the front half of a Phaeton. Just as kool though.
