KEN BAYKO BUILDS A STATION HACK FROM THE GROUND UP
we have been asked to design and build a frame for a Model "A"
the owner has the sheet metal from the cowl forward and will construct
balance of the vehicle mostly out of wood in a true station hack
the front of the frame will be a standard Model "A" four bar
arrangement however the
rear will be custom designed to support the hack body and provide
superior suspension and ride
we start with a good set of plans even though they will be extensively
modified for the Hack.
and a pile of steel

(here leroy try mine , they may be a bit stronger!!!)
just a little bit of time later
end of day one mock up
chev S-10 rear will be mounted on standard four bar and coil overs
note the Ansen wheels
motor and tranny mounts take shape
front four bars and all steering now in place
more mock up
rear will have a 3" or 4" kick put in it
and coil over 4 bar suspension
give it a little kick in the rear
everything is square and level
glue gun to hold it together
now it is coming together
on four wheels (14 inch rollers)
will be replaced by 15" but for now we have the stance.
one month after arriving as a pile of steel
the rolling frame is headed home
brakes and steering have been installed
the rest of the construction will be done in Ken's garage
he is a master finishing carpenter
the rest from the cowl back, will be done in oak instead of metal
after delivering the basics back to the owner for completion.
Ken found a reasonable 32 Ford Pick up cab and suddenly the project was
morphed into a 32 Ford Pick Up
not a street rod and not a rat rod....
