For Sale: 1930 Ford Model A in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

It's a fact: it is absolutely impossible to build an ugly '30 Ford. This fantastic 1930 Ford Model A Streetrod is ample proof, with a perfect hot-rod stance, a killer high-impact paint job adorning its laser-straight steel body, powerful 383 Stroker V8 engine, the practicality of a big, leather-trimmed interior, and all the creature comforts you'd expect of a high-quality build. And with only 7741 miles on the comprehensive, nut-and-bolt restoration, this red-hot Ford is bonafide trophy hunter, too.

First off, this rod is 100% steel, including the beautifully sculpted swooping fenders and running boards, which certainly explains why this '30 looks so darn good. Even without a major chopped top, the 2-door sedan body style looks sleek and low with that awesome rake to the stance, and with lots of window area you know it was made to drive. The vivid Tangerine Pearl finish was a perfect choice to highlight the impressive design, and freeing up the clutter by removing the bumpers, most of the trim, and shaving the door handles and hinges has really streamlined this street rod. High-end PVE Dupont paint really helps too, and the deep, lustrous orange finish was completed to a nearly show standard with a terrific gloss and shine that hardly shows any imperfections. Kudos to the builders for getting this one exactly right. Ghost flames outlined in black pinstripes wick the front end of the car, fabricated hood panels expose the flashy engine, and a color-matched visor was added to accentuate the roof. King Bee-style headlights perched on the swooping front fenders are period-perfect pieces that flank that iconic waterfall grille, and a chrome spreader bar takes place of the otherwise obtrusive front bumper this 1930-model was born with. The rear fenders were beautifully sculpted over the tubbed rear end to mimic the look of oversized mud flaps, a frenched-in license plate holder is a trick touch, and the LED light strips (including the 3rd brake light up top) were so neatly incorporated it's easy to forget that they're modern components. There's even a cleverly hidden gas cap out back that was installed flush against the rear of the body, and the tough-looking dual chrome exhaust pipes down below add to the hotrod vibe.

Suicide-style doors were factory-issue on practically everything in 1930, so stepping inside is easy. Once you're in there, you'll find acres of lovely tan leather throughout the elegantly lined cabin that looks as luxurious as any modern car you can buy today. Twin buckets up front fit neatly in the vintage sedan, door panels were stitched to match, and the rear bench was transformed into a leather-lined stereo storage area that looks (and sounds) like it's ready for competition. The original dash has been beautifully re-created, painted to match the exterior, topped with matching tan leather, and then filled with a centralized set of Dakota Digital gauges that keep an eye on the upgraded motor under the hood. A full Vintage A/C system was installed underneath and blows ice-cold air throughout the cabin, a leather-rimmed billet steering mounted atop a chrome Ididit column controls the cockpit, and billet knobs, switches, and door handles throughout the cabin add a slick touch inside. A modern stereo powers upgraded speakers stashed inside the hushed interior where a taut headliner and plush carpets keep out the horrors of the outside world, and everything feels tight, clean, and airy inside - the perfect interior for a touring streetrod.

The fabricated hood provides a sneak-preview of the beautiful engine that powers this rod - a powerful, fuel-injected 383 Stroker V8. With only 7741 miles on the build, the small block has plenty of pop, runs incredibly smooth, and it's a surprisingly torquey powerplant that makes this 2-door move like it weighs 1000 pounds less than it actually does. A tuned-in Holley Sniper fuel-injection set-up feeds the powerful small block with the help of steel fuel rails and steel-braided lines, and the presentation was finished for show, with a custom engine/intake cover and air filter assembly, polished 'Pro Street' valve covers, and a chrome aluminum intake and loads of polished accessories that all add flash inside the finished Orange engine bay. A serpentine belt system drives the accessories and ensures reliability, an MSD ignition fires it all up, an aluminum radiator with a thermostatic electric fan keeps it all cool, and a set of Sanderson headers feed into a throaty dual exhaust system that sounds absolutely EPIC. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission matched with a Ford 9-inch rear end are both easily stout enough to handle the engine's output, while a full-blown custom suspension punctuated with upgraded tubular A-arms, trailing arms, coilovers, power rack-and-pinion steering, and power 4-wheel disc brakes all make this '30 a dream to drive. The undercarriage is just as beautiful as the top side of the car, while the rolling stock rides on staggered chrome Coys wrapped in performance Nittos up front and meaty Mickey Thompsons in the rear.

Beautifully built and totally reliable, this dialed-in 1930 Ford is what every hotrod aspires to be. Top-class all the way, this is a show-worthy streetrod that needs only one thing: a new owner. Call today!
