It's time for some serious old-school hot rod fun. This 1929 Ford Model A Roadster has a true street machine style everywhere from the flathead V8 up front to the racing numbers on the side.

The body may be fiberglass, but the style on this one is all about looking like it came straight from a 1950s suburban garage. After all, because matte black paint became popular, we called it Hot Rod Black. And this has the right look of patina that tells you it loves to do blacktop battles on a Saturday night. A cool hot rod is all about custom style. The front end establishes this with plenty of details, like the flame-kissed front end, leather straps for the one-piece hood, bomber girl graphic, and the deeply-dipping '32 Ford grille. And there's something extra cool about having Nash's lady leading the way. The rear has an unfussy smoothness that fits with this car's attitude. And the red wire wheels are a great classic touch that upholds the classic hot rod stance.

The interior has the right touches to look thoughtful without being too fancy. The black seat has cool red tuck and roll inserts that are also continued on the doors. And the red piping on the carpeting and around the door tops make for a coordinated package. Racing seatbelts, a long shifter, a grippy sports steering wheel all set the tone for a speedy machine. And we love that the dash is dominated by Stewart Warner gauges - including a handy tach.

The 239 cubic-inch Flathead V8 has the same style as the rest of this roadster. After all, there's added style in the polish, but no one will accuse you of driving a polished pretty thing. And it also has the right upgrades like an Offenhauser intake with dual carbs on top. While it looks classic, it's also a little easier to live with than a 1950s hot rod thanks to items like an alternator and an MSD distributor. The V8 fires up with gusto as the headers feed the dual exhaust. And the three-speed manual transmission gives you full control over the power and its rumbling soundtrack.

This is true old-school cool fun. So for the right enthusiast, there's already no question that this is the one. Call today!!!
