Vehicle Description

The body is an original steel 1931 Model A Tudor Sedan, it has been chopped 5" and channeled 3" the taillights are made from genuine Model A pistons and 'frenched in' to the body. The lenses are LED and very bright. The windshield frame was chopped and custom glass (DOT spec windshield glass) was installed. The visor was die cut and dimpled, then added to the body. The wood frame kit is new, stained to match the patina of the car. This 31 Ford is brand-new hot rod with an 'old looking' body on it, that is exactly what the seller had built. Steve Lott of Renegades and Relics Rod Shop spent over a year creating this masterpiece, his talent and vision makes him one of the country's top rod builders. The frame is a custom, hand built, boxed steel Z frame with custom from end. It is coated under the body to inhibit rust and the front is painted with special 'gold and silver' glitter paint, then clear coated. It is, by far, the most rigid and stout frame I've ever seen on a hot rod and I asked him to build it this way...The owner wanted a car that could be driven, not putter along to local car shows and leave it in the garage. The suspension on this car is all brand new; 4 link set up in the back, along with air bags, make this a very comfortable ride. The leaf springs and shocks up front keep the car pointed straight over bumps and potholes, even at speed. Brakes are disc brakes at all corners, with a Wilwood 2-way adjustable master cylinder and brake pedal assembly. The lines are all brand new, the fittings are all brand new, the car stops on a dime very easily. Wheels are brand new Ridler 650s, 20s in the rear and 18s up front, wrapped in brand new Nitto 555 G2 tires. All this comes together to create a fantastic driving machine; at 95 mph all you need is two fingers on the steering wheel. The electrical is all brand new, fabricated by two master electricians and run through the frame and body as discreetly as possible. The headlights are sourced from a 1912 Packard - they have been gutted and retrofitted with brand new halogen fittings and bulbs; they're very bright at night. The turn signals and daylight running lights are LED. The motor is a Chevy 350 SBC with Vortec heads, the engine and heads were completely rebuilt during the build and has recently received its first oil change... the oil was meticulously examined, and zero trouble indicators were found. The transmission is a 700R4, it was pulled apart and inspected and found that no rebuild was necessary, so it just received new fluid and gaskets. Both the motor and transmission function flawlessly and without issue. The interior is all hand fabricated from steel, once it was complete, they painted the entire body - inside and out - and spent almost a month adding the patina and 'old look' to it. The seats are very comfortable; with PLENTY of leg and height room. This build was a work of love and it shows in the details. The finished product is an absolute showstopper, it gets attention from everyone; old, young, men and women. With less than 300 miles on this build, it is a brand new, unique ride just waiting for a new owner.
