In my opinion the Revell '32 sedan has the best flattie in a kit. But if you just want to get an engine try Replicas & Miniatures Company of Maryland Mr. Norm Veber @ 317 Roosevelt Avenue, S.W. Glen Burnie, MD 21061 410.768.3648 You can find a lot of his stuff here http://public.fotki.com/crstan/replican-and-miniat/replicas-and-miniat/, but you have to call him to order, he's got no website.

Wow, thanks for that link, some amazing parts on there! Now I'm not sure if I want the flathead or just get the hop up kit for the 4 banger, either way this build is going to be fun.

RM,'50 ford pick up, Amt'49 merc both have pretty cool period parts. If you go this route you get to try and figure out what to do with the donor car while your building the "A".Just a thought ,,,,,,Trainwreck.

FWIW, I hadn't heard of thepartsbox, and checked them out - what amazing flatheads! I ended up ordering a V8 on account of the odd (to me) supercharged carburetion, and the V12 (which I assume is a Lincoln, did anyone else ever do a flathead V12?). They arrived today, and I am just blown away by the quality. And, something I really like about the resin parts I've seen for automotive models v. aviation models is that I've yet to have to deal with carefully sawing off the pour stubs!

I wonder if you're kicking yourself for not having waited for the new Revell '29 Ford (it has 2 comlete chassis).Oh well, hindsight's always 20/20. Trainwreck...

The Revell 37 Ford Truck has a nice flathead in it. 

 

Then I got the Model Car Garage resin manifold and Stromberg set that comes with photo etch pieces. 

This is what it looks like done, with the return springs I added

I have 4 resin V/12's I bought for the Lindburgh Lincoln Contentials . this is part of the kit lacking accuracy . If you call a 1955 Blob of Plastic an Engine ?? I am pleased with the Castings .. Thanx ..
