Vehicle Description

1929 Ford Model A Sedan

Ford customers made it clear in the mid-1920s that the venerable Tin Lizzie - the Ford Model T - had run its course and that it was time for Ford to develop the "next big thing" for the automobile market. While competitors were building cars that were better suited to the quickly modernizing roads and consumer tastes, Henry Ford believed that the Model T was still the best option for those living in rural areas, as well as those who desired accessible prices. It became clear to everyone that updates and lower prices for the T would no longer suffice, so in late 1926 Henry Ford directed his engineers to start work on a new Ford - the Model A.

For consignment, the next sensation after the Model T from Ford, in the form of the Model A. BUT not your typical Model A a street rodded version, all buttoned up and modernized for everyday use to go and show. A new engine, all new paint over steel and fiberglass, and modern interior with conveniences. 1929 and in 2023 style.

This example starts with a steel body, adds on fiberglass fenders and has a chopped top. It's all bathed some metallic burgundy and it's well applied looking just like I'm peering into the deep end of the pool. In front, a dual bar chrome bumper which is shades of 1929 curves around the bottom and just above more chrome with a bar that houses the round headlights on either end flanking the radiator. The radiator cowl is shaved of the cap and is painted body matching burgundy. The cowled hood is sans its side panels, showing off the mill underneath. Curvaceous fenders, and a running board was typical of the design of the era, and this car holds true to that genre. A stainless steel shiny front glass surround screams out for your attention, along with a smaller side view mirror in chrome, hanging off the tops of the doors. A large rear side window offers up a panoramic view for the rear passengers, along with plenty of room for those passengers. On back, a stalked tail lights hang from both of the rear fenders, and a split dual bar bumper wraps around each corner. The paint is all great, as are the steel wheels which have moon caps in their centers, beauty rings in the edges,and are all wrapped up in wide whitewall like new BFG rubber.

It must be a "thing" with hot rodders to have some mystery system to gain access to the car and this one is no different. It has "door poppers" via a remote, so if you pat your head, rub your belly and grab the remote you're in! But I kid, it's really easy. Upon doing so I noticed wonderful like new cream door panels in smooth leather with some wide dark tan tuck roll square pattern textured leather inserts. Inside, the modern high back bucket front seats and rear bench utilize the same two tone leather and design motif. These chairs all float in nearly perfect burgundy carpeting with stitched and wrapped edging. In front is the 1929 styled but updated curved original design full metal jacket dash in burgundy which sports some LED small lights and a central oval brushed aluminum plate with black face and white lettered SW gauges. Below we can see a Vintage AC and heat controller and vents. Also noted is a long stalked Lokar shifter with machined aluminum topper. The headliner and side opens are all excellent tan leather with the headliner being closer to pure white, not unlike the driven snow. I also note an AM/FM radio above in a roof center upper console in this headliner in front.

Under the open sided cowled hood, I can peer inside and see a blinged out 5.0 liter V8 mill which sports EFI and dual exhaust. It has a number of chrome add ons, and a C4 3-speed automatic tranny on back. A C4 corvette rear 2.73 geared axle is the way to go with this rodder. All like new and indeed it is! Also a bit braggadocio but it deserves that moniker.

Underneath, pure "spectacu-larity" with burgundy painted steel, chromed half shafts, chromed springs, rack and pinion steering, and shiny dual exhaust with mismatched Dynomax and Super Turbo mufflers. Front and rear big power disc braking is on. The ride is courtesy independent coil over front end suspension, and some coil overs for the back end. Quite right! You're bloody well right with this rodder...

This build and creation is bringing back the late roaring twenties, was a nice experience for my test drive. I donned my straw hat, tweed jacket, bow tie and plaid pants and was off to the test track. Here it ran quietly, shifted effortlessly and handled near perfectly with nearly no body roll whatsoever. All functions were working swimmingly. HEE HAW!

When one says street rod I pay attention. When one says fully dressed in leather and chrome with modern updates I swing my head in that direction and crook my neck. It was worth the pain I will be suffering with by doing so in the next few days, as this one is a beautiful Hot Rod build, looking all 1929 but in a very modern way. Gotta love it. Now let's go to a speakeasy and get to know each other. Cue the Charleston and let's get all liquored up.
