1930 Ford Model A Patina AV8 Coupe

This is the one. This is the coolest high boy Model A Coupe around. "Little Joe" . Joe was a Gambler, Bootlegger and Womanizer. Iworshipedhim. He ran the circuit from Marinette Wisconsin to Escanaba Mi in the 30s and 40s and this Coupe in its original form was his ride. His name and familiar Dice still show on the doors in original paint. Somewhere along the way a juice brake conversion was done and a few years ago an old rodder added a rebuilt 8BA V8 and period transmission. Master Cylinder was updated and Vega steering box added. Open Driveshaft Conversion, split bones and completely rebuilt chassis. All bearings, seals, brakes, bearings, wheel cylinders, tires, wiring, are NEW. New dual exhaust was bent and it was converted to 12 Volt using a new wiring harness ..fuse block and the original style generator all freshly rebuilt. New 16 inch tires on all 4 corners and a rough raggy spare on the mount. This is a very solid body and doors with nopatchpanels. Its all Henry original steel. Clear title. Bomber seats have been added as well as all new reliable wiring, Headlights..tail and brake light all work with STOP rear light.New replacement wood header and workinggauges. Removable steering wheel toaccommodatethe bigger..taller enthusiast. Factory fuel tank used and firewall uncut. Yes.....uncut in case you ever want to go back to an original Coupe. The windshield has modern glass and opens as it should. the other glass is original with bullet holes....and a distressed MARINES decal. Yes Little Joe was a Marine and very proud of that fact. He was only "Little" as in not very tall and the rumor is the bullet holes in the quarter glass are from a jealous husband thatwasn'tto keen on the friendship between Joe and his wife.
