Vehicle Description

A great deal of thought and attention to detail was put into this all-steel 1928 Ford Model A surf wagon. Powered by a 350ci Chevrolet V8 engine mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission, it was built by a professional hot rod shop. The steel lower panels are finished in Hugger Orange, and the upper body is fabricated from steel tubing covered in bamboo sheathing and custom-weaved bamboo panels. The roof is covered in a removable canvas top, and the interior features custom wood paneling and a fabricated front bench seat. Equipment includes 4-wheel disc brakes, rear coilover suspension, and a dropped axle and transverse leaf spring on the front suspension. This custom Woody is offered with the surfboards. The steel fenders, running boards, aprons, cowl, hood, headlight buckets and grille surround were refinished in Chevrolet Hugger Orange as part of the build. The floors were custom-fabricated, bead-rolled and powder-coated. Factory chrome bumpers are mounted on custom powder-coated brackets, and the windshield visor and rear roll pan were custom-fabricated from steel. The upper body was fabricated from 1.125x0.090 mild steel tubing and sheathed in bamboo that was coated in satin acrylic and fastened with sheet metal screws. The Model A frame was Z-ed in the rear and powder-coated, and features split wishbones in the front and rear, coilover springs on the rear, and a transverse leaf and dropped Ford solid axle on the front. The 4-wheel-disc braking system uses GM calipers and rotors on the front and Ford Mustang 4-piston calipers with race-style rotors on the rear. Brake system plumbing was fabricated using stainless hard lines with braided stainless hoses and AN-style fittings. The interior features a custom-fabricated front seat covered in a woven blanket, along with wood paneling on the doors and rear body sections and a steel dash top custom-painted to mimic wood grain. The roof covering was custom-made from Stayfast canvas by a professional in Lakeside, CA, and installs via snaps along each perimeter top rail. A chrome surround houses VDO instruments, including a 120-mph speedometer and gauges for oil pressure, battery voltage and water temperature. A matching "petrol" level gauge is housed below the paint-matched steel dash panel. The odometer shows approximately 4,000 actual miles (mileage not indicated on the title), though less than 500 miles have been added since the project's completion. The 350ci Chevrolet small-block V8 engine is equipped with dual-quad carburetors and is mated to a Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed automatic transmission. Additional equipment includes AN fuel fittings, a Mallory distributor, and custom-fabricated polished stainless headers exiting on top of the front fenders with removable baffles.
