Build your own flathead roadster just as it would have been built in the 1950s! Using a 1929 Ford Model A, this guide follows its construction from start to fantastic finish.

Review Quotes




"What makes the book so valuable is the way that Bishop and Tardel explain to the reader not only what they are doing, but the logic behind the decision to do each different aspect of the car a certain way. From picking an intake manifold to deciding on the proper brakes and even choosing the best Flathead block, Vern Tardel's many years of experience in building Ford hot rods is free for the price of a softbound book ... Thinking about building a hot rod? This book is a great resource." - Ol' Skool Rodz,
