Did you buy this one? Too cool, T? {cowl vent doesn't look ford) body well channeled, A chassis with juice brakes, B rad shell, and a flathead with zippo in the exhaust department. Looks like a nice 50's rod. Great steering setup.

My DAD has built his fair share of flatheads! Make sure that you make it run cool!

In the '80's we had 13 blocks in the yard lined up waiting to magnuflux.

ALL 13 had cracks!!! two were repaired, 11 became toyotas

You are the man, awesome.

I think the earlier example was a photo taken in France. The photo I picked up from Barry was taken at a local metro Detroit parking lot get together.

Nope, German. Based on an Opel chassis, with 327 Chevy power. Pretty expensive cars, in their day. Here's a Bitter SC, another model they produced:
