Classic Car Overview
Old school rods are red hot right now, and they dont come much more traditional than this 1929 Ford Model A roadster. A real steel body, a potent 289 cubic inch V8, and a way-out flame job, this 1960s style rod is not only cool to look at but also a total gas to drive. Red bodywork with flames give this neat 1929 Ford a very high-visibility look. The body itself is steel, no fiberglass here, and its all been nicely prepped and finished to look great on the road. The flames are done in the traditional style, licking out of the engine compartment and along the bodywork, and the fade is pretty cool. Up front theres a shiny 29 Ford grille shell thats chrome instead of the original nickel for easy maintenance, plus a set of large commercial-style headlights, and a V-shaped spreader bar. Details like the door handles, wind wings, and cowl lights have been deleted for a sleek look and 39 Ford taillights out back look as good here as they do anywhere else. The enclosed hood is nice, giving the car a finished, complete look thats still elemental, and the fact that the suspension is out in the open makes it part of the styling, not just for keeping the frame off the ground. Its a roadster, so accommodations are minimalist, but the pleated red upholstery is nicely finished and surprisingly roomy in the vintage roadster. Matching door panels and a full set of black carpets give it a polished feel from behind the wheel so you dont feel like youre driving an ancient race car. Theres also a fat wood-rimmed steering wheel has a vintage look and its on a tilt column so its easy to get comfortable. Instrumentation consists of a full set of white-faced Stewart Warner gauges that have an old time look directly out of the 60s. The skull shifter is another traditional nod to this roadsters past, and seat belts are just plain smart in an open car like this. Overhead you get a black canvas top with an opening rear window for ventilation and the rumble seat is now a trunk. The 289 cubic inch V8 makes for entertaining driving given the roadsters minimalist curb weight. Its as snappy here as it is in a Mustang GT, and its always nice to see a Ford engine in a Ford car. The engine is a little scruffy, but that means its been driven and properly sorted, and we kind of like the no-nonsense functional look. Theres a 4-barrel Edelbrock carburetor on top, a polished alternator, finned valve covers, and red plug wires to make it look like someone cared. Cast iron exhaust manifolds dump into a custom exhaust with rumbling mufflers to give it a great sound at idle and a full-throttle wail that definitely gets attention. Its backed by C4 3-speed automatic transmission and a 9-inch Ford rear end thats fitted with ladder bars and coil-overs. The front suspension uses a dropped I-beam axle and transverse leaf spring which always looks best on a hi-boy roadster like this. Vintage-looking aluminum wheels look period-perfect for a 60s style rod and carry a big-n-little tire combination that looks exactly right. There are a bunch of us who grew up with rods like this, and the combination of flyweight bodywork and a potent V8 makes it an absolute thrill to sit behind the wheel and crack the throttle.
