For Sale at Auction: 1930 Ford Model A in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Nicknamed "Alumi-Rod," this stunning all aluminum roadster is a high-performance modern-day hot rod work of art. Beginning with a 1930 Ford Model A pickup, it was handcrafted from 4x8 sheets of aluminum. The body, shell, cowl, firewall, box and box cover are all hand-formed and designed. The interior is a hand-built work of art. A special die was made to stamp a stitching pattern into the metal. There are several hundred perfectly placed aluminum rivet-style carriage bolts throughout the car. The doors are "suicide" design with bear-claw latches. Seats are custom-made and are very comfortable in design. The dash is also hand-formed with a center-mounted gauge set. The shifter is machined from aluminum, along with the steering wheel. The windshield frame is a one-off custom by the builder, while the well-engineered and structurally sound chassis is made from 1.25-inch wall-registered tubing and TIG-welded. The roadster has a powder-coated frame with 10-bolt Chevrolet rear end with posi-traction and 4.56 gears, as well as quarter-inch elliptical rear springs with custom ride-height adjustment. Also features a 1940 Ford front axle with cross springs and shocks, Wilwood front disc brakes, stabilizer shock dampener assisted steering with Vega steering box, and handcrafted aluminum radiator and hoses. It is powered by an LT1 V8 engine converted to carburetion with a GN aftermarket intake and MDD curve distributor electric system backed by a TREMEC 6-speed manual transmission. The wheels are one-off American Racing from their custom wheel department, while the fuel system is a Speedway tank with a Carter electric fuel pump. Additional specifications include Speedway adjustable brake balancing adjuster, push-pull parking brake, master cylinder and clutch reservoirs, Corvette water pump, RPC oil pan, two-core aluminum radiator with high-volume electric fan, Friction front shocks torqued to 20 pounds, Monroe rear shocks, machined-down glasspack mufflers to fit headers and motorcycle headlights. The turn signal is built into front stanchions, and the instrument panel consists of on/off key, red light completes alternator circuit, horn button, a headlight switch that is first pull low beam and second high beam. The fuse panel is built into left side of dash behind an aluminum cover and the battery is located under the dash. **TITLE IN TRANSIT**
