AMT's venerable Ford Model A Roadster kit lent most of the parts here, the early style Flatty is a generic AMT motor with heads intake modified. The doors open and theres a wood floor. These cars are really basic, this one even has original style model A mechanical brakes and friction shocks. Thanks for looking.

Is the chassis from Revell Model A kit?
Also, could you post the under side pictures? I was plannin on building something similar, but you nailed it.
Amazing model. I love it.

Jon, thats a really SWEET rod. A proper hot rod. I love the attention to detail.

Where did those rear tyres come from?

Nice! Love the detail, the wood floor, mechanical brakes, doors, gauges, wires, hoses, paint, decals, I love it all. What a great job on the old AMT flathead! It appears you had the real 1:1 to look at, great job!
