Please note that experience shows us that the photobucket of over 100 large pixel pictures posted here are in most cases best viewed and downloaded using the very latest and most updated version of the 'Firefox' browser as some other browsers and especially older browser versions are not capable of accommodating the size of the download. Over the years our clients have overwhelmingly been appreciative of our many unaltered large pixel photos posted in our ads and our feedback has been that it is very rare that a dealer will post all but the most flattering of professionally finished photographs. We prefer to post the many photos taken of the car, n sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight, n order for our prospective buyers to be able to see true and reliable images of the car advertised and that is the reason for some seemingly duplicated shots. We trust you will agree.

West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely stunning all steel 1930 Ford Model 'A' custom Roadster Hot Rod which is titled as a 1930 Ford with only 6,100 miles on the build and which represents an outstanding example of a traditional Hot Rod conversion!

Only some 6,100 miles since the build and obviously always garaged, covered and with no accidents since the build, wned and driven since then by only obviously very careful and meticulous owners - never ever abused - babied all the way! The 'Gypsy Red' color paint is in absolutely beautiful condition and the rod still looks like it was just completed. The matching Oyster White and Gypsy Red seats and interior is also in absolutely beautiful condition throughout with no signs of wear and the black soft top is also in as new condition! This Hot Rod drives exactly like a newly built low mileage rod should, the engine is extremely strong with no oil leaks, he 5 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and the temperature always remains cool.
The car was owned in recent years by a fastidious Malibu, A owner who always serviced the car at the renown 'Morgans Auto Service' of Santa Monica, A with no expense spared in the vehicles preventive maintenance. At 5,555 miles the car had new plugs, et points, eplaced fuel hoses and filter, esealed fuel pump, il & lube service ($874); at 5,752 miles the car had a new clutch installed with a new clutch slave cylinder, ew hydraulic cylinder, ransmission was removed to replace damaged throw out bearing, eplace front wheel bearings ($3,000); at 6,028 miles the car had another oil & lube service, ront wheel cylinders were replaced ($1,032); all records available.
