Default Need help identifying my 1931 Model A

Please check out the photo I have attached. I was told by a respectable third party person that it is made up of different parts of vehicles mainly a 1931 engine with a 1932 body. What puzzles me is why someone would go to all that trouble and expense to create it.

No pics here. You probably need to resize for the forum.

If it's a 32, could have been a Model B to start with. The builder had a bad B engine and could not find a replacement block so they used an A block. When you post photos show the pan, engine and flywheel housing(top and bottom). You could buy them with 4 cylinder engines up to 1934.

Welcome! Lots of people built cars out of parts. So it isn't inconceivable that someone did that. But without pics it is anybody's guess.

I don't think that you need to waste your time or energy on it. Give me your addreess and I will remove it and dispose of it properly. :-)
