1928 Ford Model A Build
By Thierry (Terry) K
Kelowna B.C.

I built the car in memory of my father DARIO KOZLOVIC. This car means a lot to the many people around me .

I started with a 28 Model A Tudor body sitting in a friends yard.  I chopped the roof 5 inches and installed a new roof, built a chassis, then channeled the body over the new frame 5 inches and built a new floor.  I got the front and rear end on so it’s rolling. I stuffed the huge 409 stroked to 452 inches in to make sure it would clear the firewall, after I moved it back 1.5 inch and built a new one. I also built a new visor and opened up the windshield area 1.5 for more visability. THE NEXT STEP WAS TO FRENCH IN THE TAILLIGHTS WHICH ARE B-17 World War 2 BOMBER LIGHTS and add a panel of louvers between them.  Then I had to build bomber style seats and a custom dash.  The front grille shell is modified a touch. Everything is hand built on this car with simple tools. It was built designed and assembled at Strong Arm Steel Fabricators in Kelowna B.C.

Who says a nice car cannot be built with simple tools and a passion and determination.


That’s me cutting the roof of the car.
