I've got doubts that it was ever a model A . If it ever was a model A, its a shame the loss that was made of it .

I would say from the 1/4 panels its a 30 - 31. I suspect that it's hand made. Either Metal or Fibreglass.

I'm with you (in age and thought).
Lucky for us, there are dreamers, thinkers and doers !
ANYBODY, even me, can rebuild most of that which has already been built (I.e.-restore). I say most, because what tiny % could even replicate what they see here ...even given the time/money/resources ?? Cool, indeed...rock on buddy !

Not my style....at all, but the workmanship is stunning. Also, he did a remarkable job of having every piece compliment every other piece. It has a style consistency to it.

It DID NOT ruin a good Model A. In fact, it was built on a 1924 Singer (a British car). I'm not sure why he built it left-hand drive...perhaps it is an homage to American Hot Rod culture, or because he thinks his sales market is outside the UK. It does have a plate on it. It could be the UK equivalent of a Dealer or Repair plate. I can't say. It is blurred out. I can't imagine it would pass MOT.

Here is a link to an article that gives some detail and a video of it running.
The Automatron

Still, not my thing, but I sure wish I had that level of skill.

I'd say this thread could be categorized as "Provocative". An over-the-top car like that gets over-the-top comments. As far as the car goes, not my cup of tea but like others have said, obvious amazing talent in workmanship. Thanks for posting.
