1930 Ford Model A Roadster For consignment, a custom steel Brookville body car in Model A form of course by Ford. This car harkens back to hot rodding earlier years with a dropped front I beam axle, open cowl hood, and stripped down for less weight to power ratio. Drop the hanky and lets go! NOTE: This vehicle is titled as a Special Construction, the Pennsylvania Department Of Motor Vehicles does not assign a model year to special construction motor vehicles, trailers, etc. Please research with you local, county, state or provincial motor vehicle bureau to ensure that registering and titling of this vehicle is accepted in your area Exterior Painted in Flame Red, this topless side open cowl hood Model A has vintage Flying A service ads on either side. The tub with its extended cowl lengthens the bodywork but gives it a racier look. Upfront a dropped I beam axle holds the front wheels to the ground. Just aft of this axle we see a vertical stainless ribbed grille and red painted cowl grille housing. Flanking on either side is a round headlight with a chromed bezel and red housing that holds a turn signal on either top of the housing. The hood for the engine has open sides to add to the hot rodding mystique and show off the mill. The tub has handless doors and a flat glass windshield with no top. On the back is an oval red painted fuel tank which sits in a fabricated beam mounted just above the massive rear axle which the consignor states is courtesy a S-10 pickup. Simple white painted edged steel wheels are on and these sport red centers. In front we see 165/80R15s and on back are larger 265/75R15s with deep treads are on and looking sporty. Interior The tub is accessible through swinging doors on either side and these have a simple black vinyl panel on the inside. The seats are chrome tubbed bomber style low back buckets and these have a nifty stitched padded triangular pattern on them within the ultraleather. A simple red floor is beneath the seats and it changes to black rubber covering in the front for the drivers and passengers feet. A Hurst shifter is between the buckets on the floor, and also a handbrake is noted. Period correct round rubber pedal coverings are on for the clutch and brake. A rally steering wheel fronts a red painted steel dash which has a chromed period mask style dash in the center. This has newer gauges but retains its original speedometer that came with the 1930 version of the Model A which is a nice touch to go with the modern look. An ammo box is the center console and more black covering is on the sides and back off the tub. Drivetrain Open for the world to see is a 215ci V8, which has a single 4-barrel Edelbrock carburetor on top and a T5 5-speed manual transmission on back. The S-10 10 bolt rear axle is in the center of the rear wheels and does a good job of spinning them! Headers and a zoom pipe are on for the loud exhale! Undercarriage No rust, just a red painted X frame, floor pans, and rockers. On the back we note transverse leaf springs and up front on the 4 inch dropped I beam are leaf springs with a wishbone setup. Drum brakes are on all 4 corners and all is rust free and very structurally sound. Drive-Ability A true fun driver, easily accessible through the doors and comfy seats to sit on while driving. All functions work and it is a good handling hot rodder. Also it has some neck snapping acceleration due to its low power to weight ratio. A fine build harkening back to the hot rod days of yore all stripped down and keeping it simple. Arrest me red and if you are not careful you will be arrested! Ah what the heck who cares we are havin fun!
