The hot rod culture is still alive and well! With cars like this
1930 Ford Roadster we imagine it will be a very long time, if ever,
that enthusiasts will get bored with the fun factor these little
roadsters bring. Traditional good looks and a stout small block
stuffed in a small body is what makes these cars so cool.
If you're lucky enough to get up close and personal with this car, you'll probably first notice the liquid smooth coat of glossy black paint that adorns the Model A body panels. Those panels fit nicely with even gaps for an overall package that you would be proud to show off. In fact, there has been less than 3K miles put on this roadster since the build was completed, and it definitely shows. Accenting the black paint for a traditional look is a red pinstripe that features a Ford oval on both sides. There are removable hood louvers included so you can opt to show off the Ford small block as it is, or have them installed for a concealed, sleek look. The fenders and running boards give the car a vintage speedster vibe, while that stance sits on staggered 14'' wheels painted in red with faux knock-off white wall tire inserts to accent the nostalgic look.
Inside is a two-tone interior wrapped in light grey and dark grey vinyl. There is room for two in the cockpit, but if you want to carry along another passenger or two the rear hatch lifts up to reveal a rumble seat that is covered in the same two-tone vinyl. The custom dash is molded from fiberglass and has been painted dark grey; it houses a complement of gauges that include a speedometer, oil pressure, voltage, water temperature, and fuel level. There is a panel of switches under the dash that also includes the ignition and headlight controls. A Lokar shifter is within easy reach for gear selection, and a 3-spoke Lecarra steering wheel sits on a tilt column.
Power for this little roadster comes from a 302 cubic inch Ford V8 built by Terry Walters Precision Engines. That 302 is complemented with a Holley dual feed 600CFM carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer intake, ceramic coated headers, and an H.E.I. ignition. A C4 automatic transmission handles the power and sends it to a Ford 8'' rear end with 3.35 gears. Fire the small block to life and it exhales through a dual exhaust system with glasspack mufflers for a deep and throaty growl. Power brakes handle stopping duties with 215/70/14 front and 235/70/14 rear tires maintaining contact with the road.
