We have been building frames pinched in the front and rear for Model A bodies for years, including the popular Baer Roadster that has become one of our more popular cars to come out of our shop. That car rolled out the door in 2007, and we still get inquires about the frame and chassis under that car.
Below are a few additional photos of a recent frame leaving the shop, pinched both at the cowl, and the rear frame hors for a ’28-29 body. We only pinch the rear frame horns for a ’30-31 body.
As you may not know, we slice up the stock stamped rails, and recreate them as if they were stamped originally with the “pinched” dimensions. No hard steps in the rails, and no funky/wavy sections where the rails look bent.
