Built with attention to detail, this custom double Jet Black 1929
Ford Model A roadster features a strengthened frame and all-steel
Brookville body. Passenger comfort is heightened by a frame stretch
and forward placement of the firewall yielding extra legroom. Steel
1932 vintage front fenders are lengthened, and the running boards
and rear fenders are unaltered 1929 items. Under the Rootlieb hood
resides a 5.7-liter LT4 GM V8 engine developing 330-plus horsepower
with a custom-chipped 1996 Corvette computer module and dual
exhaust including Sanderson headers and quad Bassani mufflers. A
variable-speed SPAL 16-inch fan and upgraded custom aluminum
radiator ensure cool running of the potent LT4 powerplant and the
custom-engineered fuel system was designed with a baffled fuel tank
custom-fabricated by Chris Thompson of Hjeltness Restoration in San
Diego, California, plus a constant-speed, full-flow submerged fuel
pump and Audi TT filler with proper overflow and splash drains. The
engine and wiring are fully enclosed for a totally clean look. A GM
700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission provides cruising
ease and sends the massive power to a custom narrowed 9-inch Ford
rear axle setup equipped with 3.83:1 gears, limited-slip, a
vintage-style quick-change housing, and Spicer 1350-Series
U-joints. Other mechanical highlights include a CNC dual circuit
brake system including front and rear bias adjustment and front
discs with Jaguar-style inboard discs to the rear. The steering
column position and pedal placement are set up to mimic the
ergonomics of a 1996 Mercedes-Benz steering geometry and is
specifically calibrated for excellent handling and a pleasurable
drive with custom-fabricated front A-arms and rack & pinion
steering gear. The Model A's Connolly leather upholstery and custom
removable soft-top are the work of Ocean Beach Upholstery in San
Diego, California. Other highlights include billet license-plate
frames, custom nerf bars and Bosch headlamps.
