UNQUESTIONABLY UNIQUE AND COOL! 305 V8 W/ 2-4s, AUTO, USABLE BED, HEAD TURNER!
If you like your rods to be a little bit creative and a lot traditional, perhaps this 1923 Ford Model T roadster pickup will appeal to you. A little bit Model T, a little bit Model A, and with a big helping of Chevy small block power, it's the kind of car that attracts attention for all the right reasons and everyone can agree that it's just flat-out cool.
If you're a Ford expert, you've already spotted that this is a Model T/Model A hybrid, with a Model T roadster pickup body and bed, Model A fenders and grille, and a bunch of attitude. It fits together remarkably well and looks like it might have been designed that way from the start, a nice testament to the build. Satin black with an old-school flame job is a traditional look, and this truck totally nails it without trying too hard. There's patina, a few fun touches like the pin striping on the bed, and even a little practicality, because you can still stow stuff in that bed, which also includes the fuel cell and a handsome plank floor. It's in extremely good condition, and all the patina is purely intentional, making this a truck built to look like this on purpose. The Model A radiator shell, complete with Moto-Meter on top, the raked-back windshield, and a custom rear roll pan with trick palm tree taillights all suggest that the guy who built this truck doesn't take things too seriously. We totally dig it.
The saddle tan leather upholstery shows you just how carefully built this rod actually is. It's beautifully stitched and offers a quality feel without taking away from the ability to actually get comfortable behind the wheel. Matching door panels were created and the floor was covered in a synthetic leather that looks like saddle leather, complete with rawhide stitching on the custom center console. A big aluminum wheel recalls the vintage dirt track racer look and there are fresh Auto Meter gauges in the satin black dash panel. Although it's an open-air machine with plenty of engine, there's also a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with speakers stashed under the seat. No top, but you already knew that, and few convertibles deliver the experience that this one does.
For power, it uses a bulletproof Chevy 305 cubic inch V8. But not just any small block; no, this one is topped by twin Holley 4-barrel carbs on a Weiand high-rise intake. You want to make a statement, nothing this side of a 6-71 blower will do it better. Finned valve covers and a no-nonsense look recalls the performance oriented rods of the '60s, although there's some flash in the form of a polished alternator and water pump. The potent small block is backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a GM 10-bolt rear end, so the hardware is plenty robust, and shorty headers dump into a custom exhaust system with just the right amount of rumble. The suspension is basic, a dropped I-beam up front, leaf springs in back, and it appears that the frame is a fabricated piece that keeps everything lined up just right. Staggered Torque Thrust wheels with a great big-n-little tire combination gives it a bit of rake without getting too wild like a T-bucket. This is an entirely different animal.
If you like unique rods, this one gets everything right without being too out-there. Fast, fun, and reliable, it's what hot-rodding should be all about. Call now!
