    SmileNew - and seeking Model A Pickup

    Hi guys and gals.

    I have become inspired to get myself a Model A Ford, so all guidance welcome!!!

    I have started speaking to specialists about procuring the bones of one in the UK (or imported), with paperwork, and browsing the usual "for sale" websites.

    Have worked out I need a 30-31 model (slightly larger inside for frequent use???) and something with a sound chassis and body; I can employ a specialist to get it to a running chassis, then take over from there.

    Nothing concours (but nothing battered), and the engine is immaterial - I can install my own.

    BUT - much more advice needed, so please fire away.

    Thanks, Ronnie L - Am spending all my time speaking to people (burning up hundreds of miles - face to face is best), searching the internet, and joining forums and clubs. Hard work this hot rod world - and that's before I have a car

    Thanks, TonyTony and greetings to Stockport from the South - although I actually hail from the Frozen North (Scotland).

    Currently, though, I don't know where I am based, or which way is up on the map, as I am putting in the miles visiting and talking to people, in search of info which will lead me to the Ultimate Ford A. For me, the Ultimate is one with a modern V6 or V8; an un-chopped cab; and is (or will be) capable of being an everyday car. Anything from a project to a finished vehicle. Shout if you see anything!

    Meantime, PM me with details of your own fleet

    Hi Alan,

    Good luck with the hunt.

    I'm putting together a model A myself. 31 Coupe body, reproduction (fibreglass) with some new rails and modern running gear. Hope to have it on the road next year at some point.

    It will be a long old journey but I'm hoping to use it as often as possible, hopefully even daily if funds allow, as soon as it's finished!

    Good to hear from you, and good luck V8UK - I'd love to see it when complete I am selling a Defender (don't want a new one as they are about to change the body shape ) to use the Model A daily. I shouldn't notice the difference in ride.... I have a couple of leads, so fingers crossed!
