Not long after it proved itself to be a very worth follow-up to what is arguably the most pivotal car ever to roll off an assembly line, the Model A became a favorite among hot rodders, who were drawn in by its style that made it the perfect blank slate for nearly any modification they could envision. This 1929 Ford Model A roadster represents everything a modded vintage roadster should be about - it's a magnetic open air street machine decked out in a great color and carrying a powerful drivetrain that makes it a blast to drive.
The Candy Apple red hue is a winning choice for this instantly recognizable hot rod and it's showing top form. The array of ornamentation you often see on aftermarket projects has been left off here, and it allows the style of the car, as well as the sheer awesomeness of its paint, to really take center stage. This is a fiberglass body on display and even upon closer inspection you won't find the spider cracks and warpage that often plagues its counterparts - just well-fitted style everywhere you look. The way the front fenders transition into broad running boards is seamless, and when you glance farther back, you'll find the rear wheelhouses have been so skillfully modified that you have to look a second time just to appreciate how well the sizable tires in back fit without jutting out from the sides. Of course, when you add that lightweight body to the substantial power supplied by this drivetrain, you have a time-tested equation for driving fun on your hands.
Climb inside and you'll find yourself surrounded by one seriously tasteful interior, with a nicely contoured bench seat and its surrounding door panels featuring tuck and roll patterned gray tweed and tan carpeting lining the floor. There's a full complement of white-faced VDO gauges perfectly fitted into the pinstriped dash area that are joined by an Equus tach mounted on the tilt steering column to monitor your revs. Fire up the engine, then take to the road with nothing but blue sky above you, with the Kenwood AM/FM/CD player driving speakers mounted under the bench seats playing your favorite tunes and there's no doubt you'll have yourself a great time. The substantially sized trunk area has been treated with due respect and you find no signs of mishaps anywhere inside.
Lift up the vented hood and you'll find a 355-cubic inch perfectly fitted inside the tapered engine bay, dressed out with a chrome air cleaner, valve covers and radiator, with an aluminum radiator sitting just in front. The engine starts up easily and sounds great as it sings out into its shorty headers and it teams with a 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission to make up a rock solid, yet low effort drivetrain that powers this ride with gusto. With coilovers both in front and back, this open air classic handles well and it's not prone to the bottoming out or binding around corners you often find in more modestly equipped cars. Front disc brakes help provide it with fade-resistant stopping power. The very picture of modded vintage cool, it sits on a set of 15" Torq Thrust style wheels that are wrapped with Starfire tires.
This 1929 Ford Model A roadster is one seriously impressive ride - its combination of lights out color, great looking, lightweight body and strong running drivetrain make it an awfully tough act to follow. Call today!
