    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.

    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
