Forget trying to be on your best behavior in this car; it won’t happen.  This 1929 Ford Model A Highboy is about as pure a street rod as you’ll find.  It combines old school elements into a modern build that will have you feeling like a teenager looking for trouble.


This car was an 8-year build culminating in 2012 with only 3,000 miles since completion.  It was not just slapped together with junkyard parts; rather it was carefully assembled with all new components.  It has a Heritage Hot Rods body mounted on a frame from Brookville Roadster.  The body was painted Hot Rod Satin Black from Kirker along with subtle pinstriping.


The suspension consists of adjustable Speedway 4-link setups front and rear.  The solid front axle uses a transverse leaf spring, while the rear has QA1 Ultraride adjustable coilovers.  Steering uses a Vega style box from Flaming River.  Brakes are front disc / rear drum with a dual reservoir master cylinder and Speedway proportioning valve.  Tires are 195/65R15 front and 275/60R17 back.


The drivetrain starts with a Chevy 350ci motor built for this car.  This is a 4-bolt main 3970010 casting topped by 202 cylinder heads.  Pistons are TRW 9.5:1 flat tops – perfect for the street.  The motor also uses Crower rods and a Crower Hot Street Beast camshaft.  There is an Edelbrock carburetor, GM HEI distributor, and ATS electric fuel pump.  It all makes for a fun and reliable motor with more than enough power for such a light car.  Sounds pretty mean too.


The transmission is a TH350 automatic with a B&M shift kit.  The GM 10-bolt rear end contains an Auburn limited slip differential with 3.73 gears.  Cooling comes from a Walker radiator with dual electric fans, while the exhaust has Sanderson headers with ceramic coating.  The trunk houses a 16-gallon fuel cell.


The interior is as wild as the car itself, finished in simulated bearskin!  Wow does it get the looks.  The 8-ball shifter is a nice touch too.  There is an EZ Wiring harness along with VDO gauges throughout.  There is also a self-cancelling turn signal setup on the Ididit tilt column.  You also get seat belts and a functional parking brake.  Climate control?  That would be the tilt-out windshield. 


This car is titled as a 1929 Ford and includes a nice stack of receipts and a professional appraisal for $32,000.  It is a well-built example that combines old and new features into an E-ticket ride that will have you grinning ear-to-ear.  And isn’t that what hot rodding is all about?
