This Roadster has a traditional 1948 Ford Flathead V8 with Offenhauser intake and heads sitting on top a pair of Speedway's Super 7 Carburetors are perched under a Custom wood trimmed air cleaner housing! Equipped with stainless steel headers and exhaust and backed by a rebuilt 1939 Ford transmission matted to a 1931 Banjo rear. Now to the Not so Traditional or normal body, It is all solid hand crafted Mahogany! This Model A is a Woody of the highest order! The builder used vintage boat construction methods with stainless steel fasteners and adhesives. The measurements used were a 1932 Ford roadster body, he framed and bookmatched mahogany planks over the white oak and poplar frame. The planks diverge from the centerline down the back of the roadster, each left and right bearing the same grain to produce a mirror grain pattern from port to starboard! Every screw to piece the planks together have been plugged and smoothed over. He used Swedish Epiphanies Marie Varnish and carefully sanded after each of the dozen coats. The Craftmanship and time put into this build is something I have never seen before! The Tail sports 1950 Pontiac taillights and a custom-built rear bumper made from a barroom foot rail! The interior was kept conservative and also all 100% custom built with a Mahogany dash with Stewart Warner Gauges a hand crafted Banjo steering wheel that is quarter-sawn oak with dovetail biscuit joints. The Cream colored, hand stitched vinyl bench seat with matching door panels, it all looks great! Did you notice the Stance? It is spot on! The frame is a 1929 Frame that was taken down to bare metal, cleaned up and then Z'd two inches in the rear. The front is boxed with a custom cross member and shock mounts fitted with vintage chrome shocks. The steering box is a vintage 1951 Chris Craft unit from a boat! But not everything is Old School it is option with a powered truck lid which opens to a 12-volt electrical system with a NAPA battery mounted inside, a 15 gallon fuel cell sits at the front of the truck and an electronic ignition system.
