REMARKS:

APPX 500 MILES ON THIS BUILD NOW.

THIS IS A VERY SOLID, STRAIGHT, TIGHT, 1931 FORD 2 DOOR (TUDOR) SEDAN CAB.

HISTORICALLY, MODEL A COUPES. TUDORS & FORDORS TEND TO KEEP THEIR VALUE BETTER THAN OTHER 30's BODY STYLES DUE TO THE DEMAND FOR THEM AND THE INCREASED DIFFICULTY IN FINDING THEM.

LIKE MOST SUICIDE FRONT AXLE/SUSPENSION SETUPS IT CAN GET SQUIRRELY ON A VERY BUMPY ROAD. THE FRICTION SHOCKS DO A GREAT JOB OF BRINGING THE FRONT CORNERS BACK DOWN FAST AND REDUCES TRACKING. THIS WILL NOT DRIVE LIKE A NEW VEHICLE BUT FUN TO DRIVE. LIKE ALL HOT RODS IT TAKES SOME GETTING USED TO.

I DID NOT BUILD THIS VEHICLE BUT FEEL THE BUILDER DID A VERY GOOD JOB PUTTING IT TOGETHER. IT IS BUILT WITH QUALITY PARTS AND I FEEL SAFE WHEN DRIVING IT. IT WAS MY INTENTION WHEN I BOUGHT IT TO IMPROVE IT AND SELL IT.

THERE ARE NO SEATBELTS INSTALLED.

I MADE SOME ADJUSTMENTS TO THE ENGINE, MADE SOME MINOR ELECTRICAL CHANGES AND FINALLY COSMETIC CHANGES TO SET IT APART FROM THE REST.


LEGAL STUFF:

THIS VEHICLE IS ALSO LISTED FOR SALE LOCALLY. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THIS AUCTION WITHOUT NOTICE AND SELL TO A PRIVATE PARTY.

REMEMBER...THIS IS A RAT ROD! NOT A LINCOLN OR A CADILLAC! IF YOU SEEK COMFORT AND A SMOOTH COMFORTABLE RIDE THEN DO NOT BID! THIS IS NOT YOUR RIDE. IT SHAKES AND RATTLES AS IT ROLLS.

IF YOU WANT TO GET ATTENTION EVERYWHERE YOU GO, SCARE THE NEIGHBORS, DRAW A CROWD...THIS IS YOUR RIDE!

REMEMBER...A RAT ROD WILL HAVE SOME DINGS, SCRATCHES, IMPERFECTIONS...THIS ALL ADDS TO THE CHARACTER OF THE 'RAT ROD'...DONT EXPECT A SHOW TRUCK QUALITY!

I HAVE BOUGHT NUMEROUS VEHICLES ONLINE AND HAVE FOUND ONE THING TO BE SURE...PICTURES ALWAYS MAKE SOMETHING LOOK BETTER THAN IT IS. KEEP THAT IN MIND.

I AM NOT A DEALER. THIS IS A PRIVATE PARTY SALE. I MAKE NO WARRANTIES, I OFFER NO GUARANTEE. THIS SALE IS AS-IS, WHERE-IS, NO REFUNDS OF ANY KIND.

PLEASE ASK ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING ON THIS VEHICLE. IF AT ALL POSSIBLE INSPECT OR HAVE INSPECTED PRIOR TO BIDDING. COME SEE IT, START IT, DRIVE IT, TOUCH IT, OPEN AND SHUT THE DOORS, FLIP THE SWITCHES, CRAWL UNDERNEATH, ETC ETC AND DECIDE IF YOU WANT TO BID ON IT AND BUY IT. I WANT NOTHING MORE THAN SOMEONE TO BUY THIS VEHICLE THAT WILL LOVE IT AND ENJOY IT. IF YOU DECIDE TO BUY IT SIGHT UNSEEN THEN DO NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT ANYTHING LATER. I REPEAT, DO NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT ANYTHING LATER.

IF YOU HAVE TO ‘GET A LOAN’, ‘SELL ANOTHER TOY FIRST’, ‘ASK YOUR WIFE OR GIRLFRIEND FOR PERMISSION’, ‘WIN THE LOTTERY’ ETC ETC PLEASE DO SO BEFORE YOU BID. IF YOU OFTEN HAVE BUYERS REMORSE AFTER A LARGE PURCHASE THEN PLEASE BID ON SOME OTHER AUCTION! WINNING THE AUCTION DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN COME LOOK AND DECIDE IF YOU WANT TO BUY...IF YOU WIN IT YOU OWN IT AND IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND I WILL KEEP YOUR DEPOSIT. NOTHING PERSONAL…THESE AUCTIONS COST MONEY!

LOTS OF FULL SIZE HI REZ PICS ATTACHED _
