   1931 Model A Roadster
This is my Model A 1931 Roadster. It's really a glass fibre body with a homemade frame, propelled by a Volvo B20 4 cylinder engine. Rear axle is also a Volvo 240. Hey Volvo parts are cheap in Sweden.  The car has been on the road for 10 years now and it works very well except that we really don't have roadster weather in Sweden.
So I started on a new project a 1942 Business Coupe.
Want to see some pictures from the building of my  1931 A ford

 One other project i have done is a Volvo PV phantom step side pickup.
In Sweden the only way to drive anything with 4 wheels is when you're 16 years old.
Is to drive a tractor. So my son and I built a Volvo tractor in shape of a Step side.
It had two gearboxes and wasn't capable to go faster the 20 mph, its a tractor you know.

Go to pictures of the  Volvo tractor  Project.

I also built another tractor for my youngest son Henrik.
It's a 1970 Camaro with Volvo Engine!
