Our Detroit Showroom is proud to offer a super unique 1930 Ford Model A Roadster. This isn't your average build, in fact this build is a local show winner that could turn heads no matter what road its on. First thing that grabs your attention is the Bright Yellow paint that snaps the necks of any on-lookers and they usually don't stop staring until you're out of sight. The interior is a premium Black vinyl kit that blends beautifully with the car. Under the hood, you will find a '53 Mercury Flathead V8 but you'll notice something extra. This SUPERCHARGED flat head has been modified and has a set of Paul Samarin heads with water manifolds where the idea is the water exits the head in more places to aid cooling. This is paired to a C-4 Automatic transmission that translates power perfectly. This full fendered Ford can squeal the rear tires at just about any speed. The rear end is a Hildabrand Quick Change which allows you to have lots of fun when stabbing your right foot into the floorboard. If you are looking to buy a show winner, this is the last of a dying breed. This roadster gives an awesome open air feel is actually very driver friendly. If you are in the market for an awesome hot rod, look no further.
