This Model A Ford is the original steel body car with fiberglass fenders. The stock 1965 300HP 327 Corvette motor has an Edelbrock intake and carburetor with polished aluminum Corvette covers and Holley double air filters. The headers are ceramic coated and feed into Magnaflow mufflers with 4” x 18” chrome tips creating a very distinct rumble.
The silver paint and purple painted pin striping are in good condition (few chips). Shows beautifully!!! Has been garaged except to take to shows since I purchased it in 2009 (previous owner also kept garaged).
Recently replaced rear tires, vinyl top, radiator, battery, motor and transmission mounts.
There’s a lot of well kept chrome under the hood including the A/C compressor and alternator.
Front seats are modified from an early Saturn; rear seat is custom made. The dashboard is gorgeous and has a matching overhead console with aircraft style lighting.
This beauty has won numerous car shows and trophies and is a dependable driver ready for many more years of driving and showing. It’s the best of an original Model A with a modern era drivetrain and extras! I’m selling to move into something new.

Once again, the Hagerty crew has created a drivable automobile in just 100 hours and sourced completely from the piles of used parts at the Hershey Swap Meet.
The idea of Hagerty’s Swap to Street Challenge sprouted from a simple concept often heard at the Hershey Swap Meet, that you could build an entire car from the used parts.

Often a popular car to turn into a classic hot rod, the 1930 Ford Model A was created to help Ford maintain a strong presence in the market during a time when other cars began to be more affordable and practical.
“Dry lake” means something different in Southern California than it does in the rest of the world. Speed-obsessed hot rodders since the late 1940s have viewed the flat, dusty expanses of prehistoric lake beds as perfect places to go fast.
