Q & A

What's in the Box

Building a Model A highboy on 1932 Ford frame rails is one of the all-time classic street rod recipes, but it traditionally took a bit of surgery to mate the two. Speedway Motors makes the job much easier with the Model A Plus Perimeter Frame.

This frame is built with 1932-style rails that are contoured to fit a Model A's body. The tops of the frame rails are flat so there's no cowl surgery required, and the rears are stepped in to allow for a clean fit to the body. The frame accepts Speedway's tube or beam axle Model A front suspension packages and is designed to use the triangulated four-link rear suspension.

  • Stamped 1932-style frame rails
  • Frame rails boxed from front crossmember back
  • 106-1/2" wheel base
  • Tubular center x-member assembly
  • S/B Chevy engine mounts
  • TH350 transmission mount
  • Vega steering box mount
  • Master cylinder mount (manual or power)
  • Brake pedal included
  • All body mounts in correct Model A locations
  • Valence supplied for inner wheel well face
  • Lightening holes in front shock mounts
  • Can use HEI distributor with no firewall modifications

Two different designs are available to ensure this frame will bolt up exactly as it should. Choose 1928-1929 or 1930-1931.

NO WARRANTY, NO RETURNS ON GARAGE SALE ITEMS 

Application

These frames are for unmodified 1928-1929 Ford Model A bodies or 1930-1931 Ford Model A bodies and use 1932 Ford frame rails. The chassis is NOT intended for using either Model A or 1932 fenders or running boards, though. It is intended for a "highboy" type of car (open-wheel).

  • Does NOT require modification of cowl, it just bolts on
  • Set up for a Chevy engine and TH350 transmission
  • Has mounts for a triangulated 4-bar rear suspension (sold separately)
  • Uses 27" radius rods up front

Frame rails by themselves do not carry a MSO and depending on the state you are in it varies. Kit cars and build cars require different things from state to state and the best alternative is to visit you local DMV for your state requirements. They commonly have kit cars, shop built, and construction vehicle information readily available. If you purchase a frame and body from us we can provide MSO info which can be useful when titling. This paperwork will be mailed to you when you have completed the project and are ready to take the vehicle to the DMV to get it titled.

This frame is designed for use in building a Model A high boy with the factory body mounts and in the correct place for the body sitting on top of the frame. The rails are pinched at the front for the appropriate year of body and channeling a body down over the frame is possible with modifications as needed to match the Model A’s narrow width. For ease of channeling we suggest the standard Model A frame 91657045.

The 28-29 has a cowl step-out/rib of about 1-11/4 inches at the windshield line while the 30-31 side line flows smoothly from the hood back along the entire body line with no interruption. The belt line along the cowl top and back under the windows is a flat raised stamp much like a wide U on its side on a 28-29. On the 30-31 the belt line contour is a little fancier with a wide and narrow hump close together. Those are the most notable differences. Don't quote me but I think the only difference in the frames are that the front cross-members are slightly different in the radiator mounting hole area and the front body mount areas differ slightly. Dimensions are the same.

On the 28/29 the firewall at it’s widest point where it goes in to the body is approximately 32” and on the 30/31 is 34”. If the car is complete the 28/29 has a screw on gas cap whereas the 30/31 has a twist on cap.

A pickup body is shorter behind the doors then a coupe or sedan, and there would be some of the frame hanging out past the pickup body before it would kick back in at the rear that the box wouldn’t cover

Speedway offers this frame in two versions. One for the 28-29 Model A and another for the 30-31 years. The difference being the width at the firewall and the 28 and 29 were narrower and therefore require more pinch in the overall width of the frame at the firewall. When ordering you will be given the option of years for the frame and simply specify the 28 for correct width at the firewall.

Front End Assembly for Model A Frame, I-Beam Axle, Plain
(Part #91639510)
                        

These front suspension packages make it easier to begin transforming your Model A frame into a rolling chassis. Kits include a 48" I-beam axle, radius rods, leaf spring and shackles. Kit works well with the SM300 Pro Shocks (shocks not included).

Axle kit designed to work with frame #916-57045.

All I-beam axles use the Ford spindle. We have brake kits with both Chevy and Ford bolt patterns available for the Ford spindle.

The brake kit you select will determine the final track width (hub to hub). The brake kits intended for this application (the Wilwood or our 702-4475 Metric brake kit) produce a final track width of about 56-1/4". Some of the other brake kits (like the 916-31903), which are not recommended for this application, would increase the track width by over an inch.
