The world of hot rodding has been around post WWII era, beginning with cheap and abundant 1930's cars being customized with modern components and running gear. It still continues with great passion today in many new classifications from rat rod to custom pro-touring. The roots for the original customizers arguably began with the classic Ford Model A being the car of choice, having so many available and easy to source from just about anywhere. For the most part, building a personalized hot rod was only restricted by your imagination. You could chop, shave, french, go with or without fenders, hoods, or even a roof! The options are virtually endless!
Offered here is an all steel 1930 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan that has been chopped approximately 3" to bring the roofline lower, and the body channeled to rest tighter over a new Speedway Motors chassis. Finished in a Matte Black exterior finish over a gorgeous Red Vinyl interior. It features a 350ci V8 and Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic transmission with a Ford 9" rear end with 3.10:1 gearing. The chassis utilizes a 4" dropped & drilled I-beam axle fitted with hairpin radius rod style control arms, leaf spring & gas shocks, with power-assisted disc brakes. At the rear, you will find a triangulated 4-link, Aldan adjustable coil-over shocks, and drum brakes. On the ground are traditional 15" steel wheels wrapped in Coker Classic 4-ply polyester wide whitewalls measuring 5.60-15 up front and L78-15 out back!
The engine utilizes an Edelbrock aluminum intake, 600cfm Performer Series carburetor with electric choke, inline fuel filter, & aluminum finned valve covers; HEI ignition, Taylor Spiro 8mm plug wires, shorty exhaust headers feeding resonated tube mufflers, aluminum radiator with billet overflow tank, billet air cleaner, pulleys, and brackets for the chrome alternator. You can easily display the engine with or without the hood by removing four screws. All fuel and brake hard lines are stainless steel, with braided stainless brake hoses. The cowl gas tank was replaced for a new one relocated to the rear of the car now positioned behind the rear seat. The wiring harness in the car vehicle is completely new with a fuse panel ideally located under the dash, with LED rear tail lights, a third upper brake light added, and low beam/high beam headlamps.
Once inside, you quickly notice it was professionally upholstered from the headliner to the insulated carpet. The bolstered bucket seats & rear seat match nicely in a simple period pattern, along with matching door panels. The door surrounds are accented with covered buttons which adds a vintage touch to a deserving cabin. You can't overlook the superbly executed white and red Von Dutch style hand-applied pin striping both inside and out, with a nod to the original owner's "Donna 'n Floyd" still displayed on the center dash. Auto Meter gauges are all functional, with an odometer listing 5,396 miles driven since its completion. Additional accessories include a tilt steering column, turn signals, all four tinted windows that roll up & down, Moon rubber front mats, rear carpeted mats, and seatbelts for four passengers. It is a great hot rod, street rod, and a little rat rod all rolled into one! We'll let you decide what to call it! Act quickly if you want it in your garage though! We'd bet this one won't last long!
