1929 Ford Model A

This Woodie was built in the 1970's as a 2 door Surf Woodie for display in a restaurant. The engine was rebuilt at that time but run very little. It sold in about 2011, passed into storage in an OH garage where I purchased it in 2014. It has new floorboards, a rust free frame, powder coated wheels, 5 new tires and tubes, re-cored radiator, new chrome radiator shell,leakless water pump, 6 volt alternator, 6 volt Optima battery, rebuilt starter, new wiring harnesses, new spark plugs and ignition, new steering wheel, rebuilt speedo, working instruments in a new bezel, newly recovered seat upholstery, new rear seat spring set, rebuilt front seat springs. The wooden body was in rough shape. I used factory spec hard maple for the frame pieces and birch plywood for the panels. The 1931 engine starts and runs well but is tight from not being run after overhaul. It does not leak, has no known block cracks. The 3 speed trans works. There is a clutch judder on starting out which is probably due to sitting for years on display. The rear end is quiet, the wheels do need 4 studs replaced (included but not installed). Steering works, though a bit stiff. We drive it around the airport for exercise.

Included are many new replacement parts from Snyders, Brattons, other sources, which have not been installed. Also, several 1928 and 1929 21" wire wheels, some with tires, some not. Engine spare parts include 2 blocks of unknown condition, crankshafts, oil pans, carbs cores, water pump parts, cam shafts, a Model B head, uninstalled wiring harnesses, a black 1929 radiator shell, 4 rebuildable shocks and links, a 1929 windshield visor and a 1930's visor.

Full disclosure: This is an ongoing project with good, solid bones for someone looking for a Surf Woodie that can be finished into a daily driver with not too much effort. Some wood work is needed, final fitment is needed. Some mechanical work is needed to make it completely roadworthy.Or it can be fully restored and used for advertising, parades, promotions. It is being sold as is, where is. Sales are final and not refundable unless I have greatly misrepresented this Woodie - which I have not. I love this Woodie project, but I simply cannot finish it. Please only bid if you intend to complete the auction.

Buyer's responsibilities: Ask questions before auction ends. Buyer must pick up in Virginia, Shenandoah Valley, easy access to Interstate 81. A trailer will be needed to carry the extra engine blocks, heads, body parts, wheels. I can assist with loading. A $500 PayPal deposit is required within 48 hours of the end of the auction. The remaining balance must be paid in full within 7 days of the close of the auction by Cashiers Check or Cash.
