1930 Ford Model A*. * From a southern California ESTATE ....... A custom ALL STEEL FORD model A 5 window Resto-Mod coupe and this Car stops traffic and people in their tracks whenever it is out. The Car was purchased by the builder in the late 1990's and toyed with the idea of building a very special Hot Rod. Once he began ..... it was14 years before it was completed. A Stunning Custom Coupe that was featured in the 2009/2010 Hot Rod Magazine Show Car edition Vol 33. (A copy of the magazine comes with the Car).............. After it was finished the owner entered it in numerous shows and always took home at least one award.
Please take the time to watch the 100 photo slideshow at the bottom of this description.
Since the build was completed in 2009 the Car has been driven less than 900 miles. Purchased by the current owner from the Builder 3 years ago, t has been stored indoors and driven very little since that time. Health issues are forcing the sale now and .... someone .... (WHY NOT YOU ?) ...... is going to get a great street rod at about half the price of what you could build it for today.... More importantly.... This Coupe is NOT a project ...... it is done!...... Ready to be enjoyed.
The photos show how sharp this Coupe looks but even more important is the driveability of this Car. Starts right up and idles smooth. At 2000 RPM you are traveling at 50 MPH and at 2400 RPM you are at 60 MPH. Modern disc brakes so ....... no issues with stopping. Does not overheat in traffic. In short this is as good as it gets for a modern resto-mod hot rod. All of the classic old school look .......... with the modern features that make it fun, asy and safe to drive. The 350 Chevy small block runs great and has been chromed and polished with the headers feeding into a great sounding flow-master exhaust system. Sounds healthy and strong ..... but not obnoxious.
Here is a partial list of what it took to create and build this classic resto-mod coupe ........
PAINT Painted with Dupont Super jet black base coat and clear coated with a custom flame job by Bill Roell that included the flames, in striping and gold leaf to the exterior..........
It is not unusual for people to stop their cars ...... get out and take photos of this car when they see it parked. I'm not kidding. You get a lot of attention and will be talking to a lot of people when you take this Coupe out on the town. It was not built to be a trailer queen or a professional show car ......... but still as nice as you will see on the street anywhere and plenty nice enough to win many cars shows. This car is a blast to drive and is a treat to be able to polish, ook at and share with other people.
