Brion Rose learned how to do bodywork in high school back in 1986 while working for Jack Graves Body Shop in Metairie, LA. At the age of 16 he entered his first car in the World of Wheels Auto Show and has been hooked since. He’s 41 years old now, and he built this Model A sedan in his garage. The body was given to him, and all the inner wood structure was replaced with steel tube. He chopped the roof, then stretched the body so the suicide doors could fit flush. The body is channeled over the frame, which Brion made as well. The engine, a 600-horse 350 built on a Dart block and fed by a Blower Shop blower and twin Demon 650s, was built by Greg Hekimian Racing Engines located in Watertown, MA. The wheels are 10-inch whitewall Firestone cheater slicks and 4-inch whitewall Firestones up front. The doors were lettered by Kal Smith. This project was started in January 2009 and car was completed in January 2011.
