1928 Ford Model A Sedan Delivery
The car has a Chevrolet 350 engine with corvette tuned port injection. The transmission is a 700R four speed automatic with a LoKar floor shifter. The car was built using a Heidts complete rolling chassis with inbound disc brakes and emergency brake. (all four disc brakes) Has coil over shocks, with Heidts super ride fully independent suspension. The frame has been powder coated Orange. It has stainless steel exhaust pipes and stainless flowmaster mufflers. The car is equipped with classic instruments gauges, and specialty windshield wipers. All three windows are power. All steel construction, with the roof from a Dodge Caravan fitted perfectly on top. The front windshield has been raised 2 1/2 inches for better visibility. The one piece hood is easily removable. The delivery has just been repainted in the last eight months with water born paint products. The orange color (tangelo) is a pearl House of Color paint. It was sealed, primmer and top coated, then three coats of clear added. New look and better change. Also new wheels and tires were added. All American Racing wheels with 20" rears and 17" fronts. Then Bridgestone rubber on all four corners. The car has great stopping power with four wheel disc brakes. Add your own logo or advertisement with a complementary color and use the car as a tax right-off. The car rides with the Heidts suspension and rides like a Lexus. ( Wonderful... )
