Description for Ford Model A 1931

Great start to an excellent hot rod that I unfortunately am unable to finish. Has a modest reserve and I have receipts/documentation for well over $35,000 invested up to this point. So much to list I may miss something but I will try to give as detailed description as possible.

Has been relisted as additional work on floorboards to access brake reservoir was not completed when original listing was ending. I have now added a reserve and if reserve is met car will sell!
Anyone who knows will know that a lot of work has gone into this car and a lot of money has been spent to get it to this point. As far as metal work the top was chopped 3” and finished welded. After that I had 38 hours into the stuff over the chop. That includes floors, subrail, firewall, body and motor mounts, miscellaneous repairs on wheelhouses and rear pane, eliminating the separation strips and welding on the roo, fab up stainless radiator support rods ETAL. Car is ready for body work and paint.
I will try to get more detailed photos to anyone interested and get them posted. Any questions let me know and I will gladly discuss anything you have questions about. Hate to let it go but sometime life gets in the way and need to move on from it.
