Industry News – lower your Model A

With the resurgence of interest in original style Model A Fords as a more economical way to go hot rodding, GMS Hot Rods recently gave Christina Allen’s Model A Tudor some stance adjustment. The point of difference here is that the original rod brakes were retained with the use of a 4″ drop forged Superbell I-beam axle.

Triple deuces at GMS Hot Rods

In addition to the personal Brookville roadster and another client’s Deuce Customs bodied 5w coupe, GMS Hot Rods also has another ’32 Ford underway for another client. The Deuce Customs three window coupe body came from Rods by Reid and underneath it is a complete GMS Hot Rods chassis starting with American Stamping Rails and Flatout Engineering boxing plates.

Once in the inhouse chassis jig, GMS then fitted in a flattened Model A style front crossmember and a Pete & Jakes tubular centre section to accept the SB Ford engine and Tremec five speed. Front suspension is a fully chromed and polished Superbell/Pete & Jakes unit with a Johns Industries Ford 9″ rear on triangulated four bars.

The theme for this car is a sixties/seventies hiboy hence the Halibrand and ET style wheels. Once the steering is hooked up and the Pete & Jakes pedal box fitted, the car then goes home to its owner as a roller for completion. As an authorised New Zealand dealer for Pete & Jakes Hot Rod Parts, GMS Hot Rods has used a lot of their quality and proven components in this car to good result.
