1929 Ford 4-door Briggs Standard Sedan
Model 165 B 3 Window Briggs Body
An older restoration that has had many convenience and safety features added. Beautiful Le Barron interior with carpeted rear floor, insulated firewall, interior overhead light, seat belts front and rear, new ignition switch and cable to distributor, new amp gauge and ignition wires from dash to firewall terminal box. Amp, fuel gauge and speedometer all work as does the Ahhoooga horn. Front and rear turn signals with 4-ways, LED third brake / turn signal light mounted in rear window for added safety. Right side tail light with license plate frame added for extra safety and 1929 plate display. Accessary charging plug for cell phone or GPS. Sparky Start added for convenience, this allows you to use the spark retard lever to activate the starter motor or use the original foot starter. Engine runs excellent after turning on the battery disconnect located in the engine compartment, 6 volt power is maintained by a new style alternator, electrical system is protected by a 30 Amp main fuse at the starter and a 5 fuse block mounted on the altenator. The carburetor and distributor have been rebuilt; air is filtered by a Hi-Boy K&N filter providing better air filtration and helps to prevent a backfire gas fire in the engine compartment. The glass fuel bowl has a new style paper filter to better filter the fuel. New Stainless steel lower water pipe to help prevent engine, radiator and coolant contamination. The upper pipe houses a thermostat and sensor for engine temperature gauge and attached to that is a new leakless water pump. All new radiator hoses, engine and radiator flushed and new antifreeze installed. Oil breather tube added to direct fumes out of the engine compartment. A new style no-nut manifold to exhaust pipe clamp installed to help prevent exhaust leaks. All lights are in good working order. All wood is good as is the non leaking top. New cast iron brake drums with FHT Floaters x-4, new shoes x-4, new front bearings and Firestone 21 inch WW Tires.
This Model A is 90 years old and is a driver, I have driven it to Peoria IL, Amana IA and on many back road trips, it has some oil leaks, dents and scratches (patina) but is a very solid car. Great fun to drive and show, its (patina) draws a lot of attention. Sold with a completey dressed spare running 31 engine from the fan to the U-joint. Numbers matching car, block never filed and re-stamped.
