For Sale: 1929 Ford Roadster in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is excited to offer this one of a kind 1929 Ford Track Roadster. Any old hot rodder knows the Nicks Old Car Specialty shop out of Redlands, CA & its world-famous owner/builder Harry Nicks, and this stretched, all steel/aluminum '29 is one of his finest creations! Along with well-known race suspension designer George Eckardt, Nicks has assembled another of the crown jewels on his build resume, this road ready '29. Starting with a fully boxed 1932 chassis, the team went all out on the suspension design. This front & rear torsion bar suspension not only cleans up the lines, but dramatically improves the handling, allowing for the 4-link rear & torsion bars to hold on tightly to the Ford 9" Currie Posi-trac rear end while completely doing away with the conventional leaf spring/coil spring rear end. This is the same technology & building techniques that made Eckhardt a legend among the Sprint Car and off-road racing crowds. On a vehicle with so little weight, sometimes more is better, and in this case the Pro Performance 350CID V8 creates a rocket ship, not a smoke machine! The power to weight ratio has been clearly thought out & the exhilaration is unmatched, running the horses through a Richmond Super T-10 4 speed tranny and singing sweet songs out of the side mounted exhaust. The interior has been shown the same love of quality and craftsmanship, with Jerry Noones from Jerry Noones Custom Upholstery laying down the beautiful Bamboo colored Mercedes Benz leather & German weave carpets throughout the cabin & trunk areas. The doors were stretched 2", the rear cowl was moved back 3" for more interior room and the rear pan was dropped 3". Custom rolls int the door work to match up the lines & a chopped, curved glass windscreen show just how much attention to detail was built into this Roadster. The entire build process was highly documented in a 5-page spread in the March 2002 edition of Street Rod Builder magazine, and the 3 custom made "build boards", including the show board listing Harry Nicks as the owner, will be passed on to the new owner. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of art created by Harry Nicks & his crew, and this vehicle should be considered by anyone who understands exactly what this creation really is!
