Anyone have a rough idea what a rolling chassis 30-31 coupe minus body would weigh? Just need a rough idea. Saving another model A from a hot rodder.

Re: Brake fades if hot

Listen to Ivan... don't ride your brakes, of course they will fade out. Gear down, your're not in any race. Go at your own pace.
