    I hear Vegas steering boxes work the best and are the most universal.

    it’s true what everyone is saying. Go for the Vega steering box as it is easy to install and very effective. http://www.ratrodauthority.com/Rat-Rod-Suspension_Brakes

    I have an old school T-bucket that was built in 63 and it has a Corvair box, which is typical for Buckets of that era. However you said a model A so that would usually be a Vega box with cross steering.

    check out http://www.speedwaymotors.com they have all the steering and brakes you need

  7. Check out the JC Whitney catalogue for everything you need for your rat rods or hot rods.

    What about a Bronco 2 steering box? It gives you the power steering option.

    If your going for old school, use a Ford F1 steering box. Like a 53 to 55. Use the column as well. Cut it down and use a Borgeson joint to connect so you can angle it anyway you want. That’s old school. If you use a Vega, that’s the 60/70’s look which is not old school. They work great but you won’t achieve the “look”.

    or a chevy vega, but the f-1 is a better choice..gives it the “correct” look, especially with the steering column.

    and that light a car, you shouldnt need power steering, besides.. power steering is for sissies…this is rat rodding
