Default Sedan A-Rod

Here is a picture of Spirit's Model A Sedan on our 1927 Ford Model T chassis. A school in Ohio is currently building this car.

Looks like you'll need an acre to turn that thing around. Wonder what the turning radius is?

It's on a 27 chassis. I think it just needs some bigger tires in the rear.

I love the look of the Spirit Model A Sedan body. I will say that on the 27' chassis the nose looks so long. It maybe just the way the picture is taken or the way the hood and grille is placed I'm not sure. I think the Model A Sedan will be the next project after the 27 T is done but I'm not sure what chassis I will go with yet.

I think it looks terrific. The 27T has always looked a little too tall and a little too long, and the A in stock form is a bit stubby. This thing looks terrific--long and low and lean.

I like it too. I like the ARod coupe too, probably my next build. However, I will use the smallblock chev again, but will also use the 27 frame and suspension but I will want to shorten up the frame rails ahead of the firewall so the radiator is right close to the fan with a short water pump, no need for room for a big block or a blower drive. I'd rather have the wheelbase trimmed instead.
Spirit offers so many cool rides now, there is a car for just about anyone's tastes.
I just wish I had Jay Leno's money.
