I love model 'A's. I removed a 29 body by myself (the one pictured in my avatar) back in the 80s and put it on a Progressive Automotive frame. I jacked it up with bumper jacks and 4x4s on both sides...

I've done two trucks, a 49 F-1 and a 48 F-3. I used a Chrysler torsion bar front suspension in both. In both cases I was unable to use the original cross member since it would have mounted the...

On my 48 F-3, I laid a stock type antenna over the top of the passenger side window under the cardboard headliner. It worked well. :)
