Here is the fifth installment of the shop truck build, and it’s getting an engine! Not just any engine of course, but a Flathead V-8. Check it out!
The more I watch Iron Trap videos the more I want to build a 1920-1940 hot rod. They seem so simple and bare-bones if you want them to be and that means that you can put one together pretty quickly if you have the right parts and pieces laying around. Since the Iron Trap gang does, this cool shop truck project should be pretty simple and straightforward for them to get up and running. It’s especially nice since it is going to be a shop truck and not something that has to be super clean and finished when done.
That doesn’t mean it won’t be cool though! Check out video one of this project. There is more to come and you’ll dig it.
Our good friends at Old Yankee Speed have taken the guesswork out of the Model A Flathead V8 Conversion. They sell all the necessary brackets and mounts to fully swap a Flathead into your Model A Chassis. The motor and trans mount kit require a few holes to be drilled into the chassis, and the center cross member will require some trimming. The kit is as simple as it gets and made the installation of the blown flathead a breeze. Matt usually spends multiple days getting the mounts fabricated and installing and engine. Matt and Steve installed the kit and engine in less than a day!
