For Sale: 1929 Ford Model A in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1929 Ford Model A

It takes a certain amount of faith to dive headlong into a do-it-yourself, traditional hot rod build project, especially one that begins with a basket-case shell of an old Ford. Faith that you'll find the parts you need. Faith that you can marry disparate - and sometimes ancient - components into some cohesive whole. Faith that the end result will not only move under its own power but do so safely, while looking good, too. Many of us have that dream. We know a lot of people with garages full of old parts. But not everyone has the skills and patience to put them all together.

For consignment, in classic style, a full fendered Landau Sport Coupe rodded to excellence, old school through and through, a hot engine under the closed hood, and a beautiful burnt orange paint job. I'm behind the wheel and ready for the girl in the polka dot skirt to drop the handkerchief! This all 1929 steel car has had over $6,300 worth of maintenance performed along with a few modern touches on the safety end of things. The rest, I'm keeping you in suspense! Read on!!

Exterior
All 1929 rust free Henry steel covers this classic bathed in wonderful burnt orange. Gaps are looking good, and it reminds me of the days of yore cruising Woodward Ave and smelling the mix of racing gas and burnt tires. A chrome corral around the radiator fronts a closed engine bay and is flanked by chrome bar mounted headlights between the fenders. The front bumper has been removed, but is included with the purchase. It is all smooth and rust free, and of course with swooping steel fenders that connect by steel running boards. A swing out windshield leads the way up the tan Landau roof and on the back we note the rumble seat, a great place for insolent children or your mother in-law. Of special note, the rear window opens for nice flow through ventilation. 15-inch chromed wire wheels in excellent condition are wrapped in good rubber and are showing off on all 4 corners. I'm all shook up.

Interior
Opening the small simple doors, tan broadcloth with simple stitching and an accordian style map pocket is covering the interior of the doors. Shiny chrome for the window cranks and door releases are seen within these panels. This provides an excellent threshold for the cockpit, which sports a tan broadcloth tuck and roll insert bench that stretches across the passenger compartment. This seat has been moved rearward to create more space for the passengers and below the seat is the switch for the underbody lighting, a Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD stereo and the master kill switch. Sitting proudly and rising towards the roof is a chrome t-handle shifter which is seen within an ocean of tan thick pile carpeting, and creates a calm sea for the seat to float in. Upfront, a full metal burnt orange painted dash supports a lineup of VDO gauges within the central chrome "mask" with supporting VDO gauges below. Fronting this beautiful creation is a tan leather wrapped LeCarra steering wheel and a VDO tachometer mounted into the column support. The remainder of the cockpit is lined with more tan broadcloth, and a shout out to the rumble seat area with another overstuffed cloth bench but nearly no leg room. You ain't nuthin but a hound dog!

Drivetrain
Tucked away between the louvered steel side panels is a 283ci V8 engine topped with an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold and 4bbl carburetor. All this pushes power to the Ford 8-inch conventional rear axle through a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. Just a clean, polished, well-done presentation. A hunka, hunka burnin love.

Undercarriage
As perfect as the topside with burnt orange painted floor pans, frame and rockers...solid as a rock. The original unboxed frame provides the support for the new transverse leaf spring, drop axle and kingpins in the front and in the rear, we see a 4 bar and coil spring suspension. Disc brakes are on the front and drum brakes round out the rear. Shorty headers feed spent fossils through Flowmaster mufflers on their travel to the rear of the car.

Drive-Ability
Upon lighting the 8 candles the blinged out V8 settled into a throaty idle...as it should be! This car accelerated forever and handled very well. Bias free panic stopping and a comfortable driver all around in tan and orange heaven...

A classic rod looking like a classic hot rod, but with comforts of a nice interior, and classy wheels, and no dirt anywhere. Just the look is enough and with the power it has you will be more than satisfied to be tooling through your neighborhood, stirring up the dust and leaves on the suburban streets, shades of Woodward Ave, the arm dropping and going like hell! I can't help falling in love...It's now or never folks!
