For Sale: 1930 Ford Model A in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Rat rod culture is all about being different and powerful. So while this 1930 Ford Model A Rat Rod continues to look like it was built out of what was found behind Grandpa's barn, features like the adjustable air ride suspension and Cummins turbodiesel let you know how thoughtful this street machine really is.


This pays proper tribute to the classic Ford style with an uncut body that shows off the classic lines. It even still keeps the classic vinyl roof This Henry Ford steel has been worn down to patina and bare metal for a cool industrial-grade toughness. It goes well with the channeling over the custom frame to give it that ultra-low look. The classic Ford front end has a fender-free minimalist style so that you can really see the custom steel grille covers and crystal-clear headlights. And we especially love the look of the rear wheels. They have a heavy-duty kind of 8-lug design, which goes well with the commercial-grade diesel motor up front. And these just look extra cool when the adjustable suspension is sitting low, and the tops of the classic whitewall tires cresting above the window glass.


Open the door, and the full rat rod experience continues. Exposed welds, plenty of patina, and even some vintage wood are what would be considered the upholstery. The custom dash and low-slung seating put you way back to almost where the rear seat was. The minimalist attitude is part of the fun where the modern insulation on the driveshaft tunnel can be considered a true luxury item. There are welding goggles on the rear-view mirror, a corded wrap inside the steering wheel, and of course, grabbing the tall gearstick will instantly make you feel like the Rat Fink. It's not lavish, but it sure is charming.


While Ford hot rods and rat rods often have small block V8 power, this one has something quite unique to display up front. running a powerful 5.9-liter Cummins turbodiesel. These motors have been a popular and reliable industrial friend for decades. And while you won't be using this for towing, a big torque fuel-injected powerhouse like this can certainly haul. We even bet some of you are thinking about using that big exhaust pipe up front to start rolling coal. And the five-speed manual transmission keeps you in control of it all.


This rat rod Is not for the timid. And you may need to do some servicing on the front air bags, intercooler, gauges, power steering, and some other finish work. But there are some of us out there that crave something truly unique, and you know this bare-knuckles turbodiesel machine delivers it. Call today!!!
