Found this old Body in a dry creek bed in Farmesville Texas, in 1964 on my way to Marine Corps boot Camp. It has been a built and running car and my only transportation severeal times in those years. It has crossed the country coast to coast 19 times, it has had 11 different engines in that time as well, everything from Flathead V 8's to two different blown Hemis with a sprinkling of Chevys and Fords along the way. It is a permanent member of the Bonneville 200 Mile Per Hour club having run 201.774 on the salt in 1981 when it was in a completely different configuration with a stream liner nose made from the HOOD'S of two 1940 Internationals. This little Model A has also cruised on the streets of Hong Kong for a little over a year when I was staioned there in 1979. Theres more but my fingers are getting tired.
