Model "A" Frame  

Builders' notes

descriptive text

Our parts were used in this 1928-31 Ford Model "A" frame. It follows the stock dimensions back to the narrowed and raised rear section. High strength 4"x2"x1/8" wall tubing is tapered to blend into the stamped front horns. Side rails have the original "kink" near the centre. The raised and narrowed rear section is standard.

This 1932 Ford frame uses fully boxed reproduction rails. A Model "A"-style front crossmember lowers the front end 1" but still provides rad clearance and is raked 6° for proper front end geometry. The rear crossmember is designed to use coil-over suspension. The tubular center section is also shown. All parts are shown in the product index.
