Classic Car Overview

1930 Ford Model A When viewing a 1930 Model A you will notice on the hardtops, there is a cloth/canvas covering the top. There is much speculation as to why this is and there are basically 3 reasons for this. Number 1 is Henry Ford was cheap! Number 2 is steel was in demand and was used for other efforts, and 3 is the technology for welding such a large piece of steel did not exist, and even if it was put on, the road conditions of the time would have certainly quickly bent such a large panel. Ill go with number 1! For consignment, a custom creation starting with a basic Model A. All steel save for the rumble seat, running boards and fenders. A stout 355ci V8 with a street blower, and all bathed in wonderful hot rod yellow, open cowled hood and all! Exterior We have no limits to our world, we are only limited by our imagination. And it kicked in big time on this creation which retains its original radiator surround and radiator shape, no hood and along with a single headlight on either side mounted to a crossbar into the fenders. These are fiberglass and flawless in their curvaceous design gently rolling down to the running board covered in rubber. This moves rearward and meets up with another rounded fender also in fiberglass. The roofline of the car remains unchopped, and to top is canvas. On the back a fiberglass rumble seat lid opens up to reveal what is now a trunk space. Split dual bar bumpers frame the bottom end, and some shiny zoom tubes peek out from the center. 15-inch Weld Draglite polished wheels are wrapped in front by 165/80R15s and in back 31x10.5x15LTs. A ray of hot rod sunshine. Interior Door panels are covered with a suede like broadcloth and use black field with some gray striping running through the panel. A pouch is stitched in the middle for extra storage. Black velour covers the high back buckets with some gray piping on the bolsters edges. On the floor which is covered with black carpeting we see a Hurst shifter. The black painted long eyebrow design metal dash has a series of round gauges put in, a 10 disc CD changer, digital AM/FM/Cassette radio with a remote. A Lecarra Ford badged steering wheel is fronting the dash, and a nice black vinyl headliner is above. Drivetrain Out in the open is behind the radiator for all the world to see is a consignor-stated 355ci V8 that has a small street supercharger. On top is a 4-barrel carb with a round chrome air cleaner cover that also hides the underlying street screw. On the back is a TH400 3 speed automatic transmission, and this pushes power back to a Ford 9-inch pumpkin. Headers and plenty of chromed bolt ons for this open-air beautiful build. Undercarriage Clean as a whistle underneath with black painted straight rust-free steel. A 4-bar suspension upfront and 4 link with coilovers are now on back, disk brakes are upfront and drums on back, and a Flowmaster exhaust snakes its way from the headers to the dual zoom pipe rear exit. Drive-Ability All good, and all working great this 8 cylinder has some stuff to offer up on the power front. Braking was solid and bias free and handling very good as well. All worked just great, and I had a devil of a time getting in and out! You will definitely be the only person in your neighborhood with this custom Model A rod, cooker and looker, shades of the early hot rod styling, all bathed in screaming yellow and chrome trimmings. Hand me a long neck and lets git!
