For sale here, is a fresh V/8 powered 1928 Ford Model A Roadster. This fine rod was designed and built as a personal cruiser (for a well known museum) in-house mechanic. The car is all steel and powered by a 350 Chevy with Brodix heads, hi-performance cam plus a manifold w/a Holley 4-barrel carb. The car rides on a new shock set-up w/cantilever Afco double-adjustable shocks all four corners, torsion bar rear suspension and a stabilizer. A Winters quick change rear end and torque-tube titanium drive shaft matched to a Tremec 5-speed transmission is installed. The car incorporates a truck bell-housing, custom chassis, solid front axle, custom grill, hood plus a full belly-pan. This rod is very unique and a thrill to drive.
