For Sale: 1928 Ford Model A in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1928 Ford Model A 5-window coupe was inspired by the V8 hot rods in the heyday of street machines, but now you'll also see it's filled with plenty of modern conveniences. So no matter if you love the rumbling V8 power or comfy velour on the rumble seat, this is a timeless style in an exceptionally attractive package.

If you build a rod, you need to make it attention-grabbing. The bright red paint radiates confidence from the cool coupe's body. This is genuine Henry Ford steel, and this hot rod respects that history with original styling cues such as the windshield visor, unique cowl, and of course, the iconic rumble seat. But this is far from a stock vehicle. Features like the contoured fiberglass front fenders (only body panel, not steel), bright chromed front end with King Bee-style headlights, and aggressively staggered alloy wheels all respect the hot rod era that made these Model As icons all over again.

The full custom interior offers plenty of comfort while still remembering its lineage. It starts with the cool red and gray bucket seats. Not only does this pattern match the door panels and headliner, but the full rumble seat compartment is decked out this way for a full uniform appearance everyone loves at car shows and cruise nights. There's plenty of comfort for everyone with power windows, a modern AM/FM/CD stereo mounted on the ceiling, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) But this is a true driver's hot rod, so the best features are reserved for you. This includes the sports steering wheel, tilt column, and Lokar shifter. The original-style gauge panel is upgraded to a billet housing and a complete set of VDO readouts.

One look at the 350 cubic-inch V8 in the engine bay and you know it was built to produce some serious power. It has an Edelbrock performance suite with a four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and ribbed valve covers. The Hooker headers add even more power as they contribute to the sweet rumble made by the glasspack-style dual pipes. While looking at the exhaust in the undercarriage photos, don't forget to check out the chrome front end by Super Bell and the four-link rear with coilovers. All of this makes for a solid street machine. And the TH400 three-speed automatic and front disc brakes make this a good all-around cruiser, too.

The overall impression of this one is a cool street machine with power, comfort, and history. You may decide to upgrade some of the details for a better shine or additional updated features, but overall, it's an impressive way to have a genuine hot rod rumble seat coupe. Call now!
