1931 Ford Model A
Truck Car for sale in Danvers, Massachusetts 01923
Following in the tradition of previous Ford factory built Mustang race cars like the 1968 Cobra Jet, the Boss 429 and the FR500S Mustang Challenge car, Ford Racing and AAI started work on a production run of 50 Cobra Jet Mustangs in January 2010. Ford Racing built 50 Cobra Jet Mustangs at Ford vendor facilities.
One thing that the crew at Volo Auto Museum understands is that context is everything. They have gone the extra mile to display each movie car with memorabilia and signage that brings the scene to life. The museum features actual movie props such as Tom Cruise's racing seat from Days Of Thunder.
Classic Car Overview
1931 Model A Roadster Pickup Nostalgia Hot-rod done to perfection with the following unique features: Full Auto CAD custom designed 2 x 4 rectangular tube chassis (will handle the torque of a big block) 2.) Triangulated rear suspension similar to an A body GM car 3.) Full rear coil suspension and shock design (no coil-overs to fail) 4.) 3:43 S-10 rear housing and brakes utilizing the S-10 emergency set-up 5.) Tremec 5 speed transmission w/one overdrive gear, S-10 clutch disc and modified A pressure plate…magnetic speedometer sender to a Dakota Digital speedometer 6.) Full independent front suspension from TCI w/single piston GM calipers and rack and pinion non power steering (not necessary) 7.) Engine is a Diamond Manufacturing no crack, no repair, and never before machined Model A Ford copy (now .03” over). This project utilizes the Riley overhead three valve per cylinder conversion…Lightened flywheel, race camshaft, bronze timing gear, balanced crankshaft, 6:1 compression head, leak less water pump, FS solid state ignition w/timing mark, Riley dual down draft intake, Riley side cover, Custom Red’s Headers exhaust manifold, Vintage speeds modified dual Stromberg 97 carburetor set-up all going into a 100% all stainless steel exhaust system (no ferrous welds). Many parts Jet Hot coated bright chrome look finish 8.) Interior is a special order La Barron-Bonney roadster fabric w/lower storage pockets and top is a no longer available LB Haartz fabric over stainless metal parts and oak trimming.
Of all the cars I own none of them draw the attention of this one..It Is Special and Unique in every way and it has the look. The tires and the American Racing 15” and 16” wheels along with an engineered stance give this car the correct attitude. It is very low and will endanger all unsuspecting road kill . The top does drop but has never been down…it has never been washed or rained on , there are absolutely NO dings, dents, scuffs or the like. It appears underneath and above grade “AS NEW” with less than 1000 shake down miles. Very reliable and peppy…”.
The accessory trunk is a full blown one off LB leather trimmed and buttoned item just for this car. The bed slats are oak and have been burgundy stained to match the body and are buried in clear urethane. Majority of the carriage bolts and non structural hardware is polished stainless. The sheet metal work is flawless and straight as an arrow…there are NO electrical issues( all accessories have individual ground point), NO oil leaks( maybe one from that Tremec), or water leaks and it DOES NOT overheat. The radiator is the highest quality Walker.
This rig is built to look like a stock Model A with the gas and advance levers intact on the stock A steering column. The choke rod is still present and an A shift lever and brake lever are fitted to the Tremec transmission. Not a speed demon but rather a comfortable riding and handling hot-rodded A but done the way it should be done. WARNING!! NO hack fabricators were involved with this car…Give a call to MA @ 978 774-2743 for additional info and photos…I could also do a video of it running.
