The Ford Fordor was an extremely popular sedan—most Fords were popular, thanks to their lower price point and robust engineering nature and Ford trusted two companies to build the bodies, Murray and Briggs. While both bodies were very similar, subtle details separated the two making them unique from one another. Which company built the better body is up for debate, but neither could be considered slipshod by a longshot, Ford wouldn’t stand for it. While most builders of Hot Rods prefer two doors and convertibles, finding a four door, or Fordor in Ford speak, is rare. This 1931 Model A Street Rod is just that cup of tea—rare. The steel body features suicide doors, has been coated in bright red paint, uses commercial headlights and is mounted to a custom chassis rolling on staggered Foose wheels wrapped with Nexan Tires. A chromed engine bay is home to a 302 CI V-8 engine with an Edelbrock carburetor and dual exhaust. Kept cool by a Walker aluminum radiator, the engine is linked to a C4 automatic transmission which spins a 9-inch rear end in a straight axle mounted to coilovers. The 4-wheel power disc brakes lend an air of confidence while power steering helps make the driving experience more enjoyable. Inside the Ford hosts leather upholstery, Vintage Air climate control, power windows, Dakota Digital gauges, a Lokar shifter and an Ididit steering column among other fantastic elements that combine to create a remarkably unique and enjoyable Model A Street Rod. Driven only about 20 miles since completion, this car is looking for a new caretaker to provide miles and miles of enjoyment and create timeless memories to share forever.
