1930 Ford Model A

Well I hate to put this car up for sale, but I need to make room for other projects. This car has less than 700 miles on a complete rebuild. The car has been set up for touring and having fun. Below are some of the things that were done to the tudor:
ENGINEThe entire engine was professionally rebuilt by H&H Ford Antique in Southern California less than 700 miles ago. They are one of the premier Model A engine rebuilders in the industry. The engine was set up as touring motor with the following power enhancements: New H-Beam Rods, the blocks fully inserted on the mains, counterweighted crankshaft fit with rear main seal, sleeved to standard bore size, straight valve con with 1.34 intake valves and 1 9/16 exhaust valves, HD valved seats, G7 Touring grind on camshaft, aluminum timing gear, steel crank gear, Snyder high compression head, ironite - high temp sealing and pressure test, new oil pump, new distributor oil pump drive gear, complete gasket set with copper head gasket, all new studs, nuts and bolts, painted to the proper paint code.
The flywheel was professionally turned, lighted and balanced by H&H. Also installed a "No-Leak" water pump from Snyders. A timing indicator was also installed to make it super easy to find TDC and time the distributor.
I then sent the intake and exhaust out to Piranios Antique Automotive and had them flat plane the intake and exhaust manifolds. Then I had them polish the intake runners and widened it to accept Type B Carburetor specs, to allow increased fuel flow into the carburetor. As a result you can really feel the difference when you run a stock carburetor on the car.
TRANNYThe tranny was professionally rebuilt by Snyders Antiques Automotive Parts less than 700 miles ago. I then installed a brand new Mitchell overdrive. The overdrive can be used as either a gear splitter 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5 or as simply a 4th gear. Driver's choice. This works great in parades or if you following a slower car.
CHASISI installed a brand new set of float-a-motor engine mounts on the car.
BRAKESAll new brake drums were installed on the car less than 700 miles ago. New brake pads were installed and arched to the drums. New backing plates were also installed. Note: Front right brake does pull just a little bit and needs to be adjusted.
ELECTRICALTurn signals have a been installed on the car. The car has also been converted to run on 12 volts. Also installed a master electrical shut-off switch.
STEERINGAn upgraded steering box was installed to allow for easier turning of the wheel.
REAR AXLENew ring and piñon installed when the rear axle was rebuilt less than 700 miles ago. New axles were installed and new axle bearings were pressed onto the axle tubes.
INTERIORThe interior is an older restoration prior to me owning the vehicle. However, all the upholstery is in really good condition so I didn't see a need to replace it. Seat belts have been installed in the vehicle.
TITLEThe car's VIN has been inspected by the Idaho DMV officials and an official DMV VIN tag was affixed to the inner driver's door pillar. So you should not have any issues with registering the vehicle. However, consult your local laws prior to bidding.
OTHERTool box was installed in the area in from of the grill (see pictures). Provides a great place to store extra tools, parts, etc. The tool box is easily removable if you want a more stock look.
KNOWN PROBLEMSThe is a small paint area around the gas neck filler where the paint is lifting. This is due to accidental gas spilling while fueling up. There are the normal amount of scratches that would go with a car that is being driven. Thee may also be an occasional paint chip. Nothing major or very noticeable.
Bottom line is that the car runs great and is ready to be driven. The car is real head turner, be prepared to get lots of thumbs up and smiles when other cars pass you. Feel free to contact me an ask any questions you have prior to bidding. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs and shipping arrangements. The car is also being listed locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction if it is sold. I am requiring a down payment upon the end of the auction, and then either cash or cashier's check to finalize the sale. Good Luck!!
