1931 Ford Model 'A' coupe (Many)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Bored and stroked early Chrysler Hemi.(392 out to 420ci)
6-71 blower,Hilborn 4 port injection,B&M BC (blown competition series) Hydrostick transmission
Mondello heads w/2" intakes and 2" exhaust valves,
Home built headers,Isky 505 cam
Interior
Should be scary.Cant wait.
Exterior
In progress.Will include running with no fenders,not filling the roof (except maybe with a colored plexiglass panel like the Mooneyham &Sharp 554 Fuel coupe,which was the inspiration for this car).
Will have the engine set back withthe Hilborn scoop poking out of the cowl.
Audio
Stock model A frame,boxed and x-braced,was going to do a real old-school,traditional looking 3-point bar,but this car will probably end up with so much power I'm looking at building a full cage now.
Suspension
Sock Model A axle up front w/Hurst Airheart discs,Winters Quick change rear hung on looooooong ladder bars,riding on a Model T or Model A buggy spring,whichever gets into sit right,and work like it should.
Wheel and Tire
Probably spindle mount Halibrands up front,and 5 spoke ET's in the back.

Kinney tires go in the front,a big set of M&H fattys will go out back (probably about 31" tall,maybe 11" wide...?)
