This 1929 Ford Model A Roadster is out to command your attention in its slick red appearance. But when you look at all the alluring details – from the steel body, to the powerful 350 V8, to the fully independent suspension – you soon realize that this total street machine is more than just about its bold first impression.
If you're going to build a custom machine, you may as well make it attention-grabbing. The red is a deep and glossy shine, and that luster is no accident considering there is less than 2,200 miles on the whole build. This hot rod respects its history with original styling cues such as the dual bumpers, headlight setup, and the design of the folding roof. But then you also instantly notice the sporty upgrades of the sleek fit and finish of the body, frenched taillights, and beautiful Artillery-style wheels with Ford V8 logo polished covers. The aggressively staggered tire size gives this the kind of stance that made these Model As icons all over again in the hot rod era.
The full custom interior offers plenty of comfort while still remembering its lineage. It starts with a bench seat finished in comfortable red leather. They took their time with the dash, carpeting, shift boot, and custom door panels to make sure that all of this coordinated quite nicely in shades of aggressive red. The three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel feels great in your hands, especially on the chrome tile column. Although, we also bet your right hand won't be able to resist the Lokar shifter. The full set of VDO gauges dominates the dash to keep you fully informed. Even the trunk is fully finished with custom panels and an artfully-mounted spare.
There was a ton invested in the engine bay with all the polished components, including the valve covers, alternator, air topper, and much more. Plus, we love the detail work, like how the plug wires match the smooth red firewall. More than just look great, this is a powerful 350 cubic-inch small block that's been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, performance intake, and headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. But while you'll be proud to show off this engine bay, they're going to have to get you off the road first. That's because this is a true driver's classics. There is a Mustang II-style front end and a Corvette-style rear giving you a fully independent suspension. That's an attractive rarity even on these modified Fords. Plus, you have rack & pinion power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. So this street machine is truly built to take you everywhere.
Nicely finished with all the right driver upgrades, this steel-body Model A is an all-around stunner. So if you like driving your classics as much as you enjoy showing them off, don't miss this total package. Call now!
