With a majority of tuning under the belt, and with drivability better than ever, I’ve finally been given the opportunity to drive the Model A in a more casual manner. After work yesterday, I decided to drive the old truck home, and couldn’t help but stop for photos along the way. Following the latest daily grind, we’re back with the latest StanceWorks Desktop Wallpaper of the Model A. As always, you know the drill: simply right-click and save-as for the full resolution shot.
“Better late than never,” they seem to say. It’s been more than a year since my latest project made its debut with H&R Springs, center stage, at SEMA 2018. After a blisteringly-fast 6-month build, I turned up the day of roll in, excited to show the world what I had been working on through the summer and fall months of the year.

The rules are simple. Era Correct modifications only. Things like alternators, disks brakes or any sort of modern powertrain is strictly forbidden. This is the kind of event where your neighbors pristine model A wouldn’t fit in. Nothing but race ready, gritty machines and raw power.
It’s been a hot minute since I photographed my progress on the truck.

The biggest outstanding project on the truck is undoubtedly building and conquering the custom independent front suspension.
“The Marauder,” he calls it. It’s pretty obvious why, too. Clad in black, and only black, with a turbo perched atop the massive 1,100lb 5.9-liter Cummins 6BT turbo diesel, it’s menacing to say the least. Black smoke billows from its teardrop stack, and an intercooler sits perched behind what used to be a front grille. The Marauder exudes an air of intimidation, and does a hell of a job showing its fellow countrymen, and all of Europe for that matter, what a hot rod can be.
