1928 Model A Ford Tudor. This started with a 44,000 mile car that
had never been taken apart or restored. It has been stored inside
its entire life. When I bought this car it was in the mans den on
four scissor jacks. Have all documentation and pictures from new
along with pictures of the couple who bought it new. It was built
in the Denver Ford plant. My first car in 1958 when I was 13 was a
1928 Model A Coupe and I wanted to build a no frills tribute to
that car and this is it. I wanted a modern four cylinder motor and
manual transmission. No polished aluminum, no glitzy looking stuff.
No fuel injection, no power brakes, no power steering, no big GM
alternator, no digital gauges, no radio, stereo, cd player, no AC
but, it does have a heater. It also has turn signals, high and low
beam head lights and a horn. No power windows, no tilt steering
column, no wide wheels with fat tires, no wall to wall carpet. It
does have nice Henry Ford hardwood floors painted black as Henry
would want it. Have all receipts. THE CAR AS IT IS NOW. Fresh built
GM Quad 4 HO engine. Factory GM tube header. Xdi ELECTROMOTIVE
engine timing control system. Fresh rebuilt Weber carbs with
sequential serial numbers. Fresh Chevy S10 T5 five speed
transmission. Fresh 8 inch Ford rear end. Possie Super Slide
springs. New Wheel Smith spoke wheels. 5 inch front, 6 inch rear.
New So Cal dropped axle with disc brakes. New interior, original
headliner and pull down rear shade. All new green tint glass and
fuzzes. In 1958 the owners had the green part of the body repainted
and a new rubber roof. This is just a fun car to go out to your
favorite cruise nights in. Never worry about overheating with this
stock Model A non pressurized radiator. Even on 100 degree days you
have to drive quite awhile to get the electric fans to come on at
170 degrees and then the temp just stays there. Very cool. The
engine has a dummy distributor on the front of the right cam.
