Classic Car Overview

1930 Ford Model A Roadster Why is oval racing popular in the US? Circuit courses were developed to address these concerns; the oval became the norm since they would allow spectators a better chance of seeing the entire race, from start to finish, and would take up much less real estate than a straight line course. Plus, there was an abundance of oval horse tracks that were being underutilized so several of them were converted to car tracks. For consignment, a custom build on a Model A car by Ford. This car harkens back to hot rodding earlier years, but with the extended cowl could have been used for racing as well as doing ok on the arm drops. Exterior Painted in coral similar to the papaya painted McClarens of modern day F1 we have ourselves a race car/nifty hot rod. The tub with its extended cowl lengthens the bodywork but gives it a racier look. Upfront a Curtis radiator grille housing with chromed bars protecting the horizontal ribs. These are very similar to a football helmet face guard that a kicker would wear. Flanking on either side is a round headlight in a chrome housing. The hood for the engine comes with the car, but it will not fit due to the air cleaner covering being too high. The tub appears to have doors however this car is a climb in version and when those cherry bomb side pipes are hot it could be a challenge! On the back is a stainless-steel tank for fuel which sits in a fabricated metal box just above the massive rear axle. A push bar is on the back and this rod has 37 Ford taillights. Chrome and black reversed wheels have baby moons and wide white wall Coker bias ply tires on all 4 corners. Interior The tub is surrounded by padded black vinyl to make access a bit softer for the landing. White tuck and roll vinyl is on the interior side panels and bench seat that has a central black large pad to separate the passengers. A black rally steering wheel is fronting a black dash with 2 large black face gauges in the center. Black carpeting is on the floors and a wide rear view mirror with a clock is on top of the dash. Drivetrain Within the engine bay is a 3.8 liter V6 topped by a 4-barrel Edelbrock carburetor. On back power from this mill goes through a TH350 3-speed automatic and on to a Ford 9-inch rear axle. Black headers snarl from the sides coming out just below polished valve coverings and go out either side to a cherry bomb side pipe. Undercarriage No rust just coral/papaya painted floor pans and rockers. On the back is a Ford rear with coil over tube shocks. On front is a tube front axle with a panhead bar with a Vega side steering with drag links to custom aluminum steering arms. Disc brakes are in front and drums for the rear. Driveability This car fired right up and ran nicely. It has good handling and some snappy pickup for a 6 cylinder. The fuel gauge is not working so youll have to do a visual on its contents. A custom throwback to the days of early arm drop lake bed racing. A nifty color and open suspension and engine add to the look, and the wide whitewalls with the baby moons complete the package.
