RESTOMOD, 289 V8, AUTO, A/C, PWR WIND, INDY FRONT SUSP, 4 LINK, DISCS BRAKES, A+
This might look like an ordinary 1931 Ford Model A at first glance, but then you start to notice the super slick paint, wider tires, and are those dual exhaust tips? Yes, this iconic Ford has been updated with 289 V8 power to give you all the best of the Blue Oval in one coupe.
The exterior on this Henry Ford Steel body only hints at this car's performance nature. Those who just give it a quick glance will just see the grille, headlights, horn, and classic silhouette, and they'll think this is a regular iconic Ford Model A. Even the rumble seat is a nice classic touch. But those who know what to look for will start to notice you have so much invested in the high gloss two-tone paint. The blue has the kind of metallic finish and clearcoat that you'd likely see on a hot rodded Model A. Then, if you spend enough time really looking at this one, you'll see the classic red wire wheels and whitewall combo are shorter and wider than on a standard Model A (the Ford V8 logo might also be a giveaway!)
If all you do is look at the blue cloth seats, then this interior could pass for an original Model A. But one glance at the dash is a dead giveaway for the upgraded nature. After all, certainly not many Model As came from Dearborn with a cool banjo-style sports steering wheel, B&M shifter for the automatic transmission, and a full set of AutoMeter gauges, including a large tach. There are even provisions for air conditioning and power windows. So yes, this icon has been updated to handle its new attitude.
When you look at the engine bay, all of the suspicions about a performance heart will be confirmed. It's nice to see such a significant Ford upgraded to such a significant Ford V8. The 289 cubic-inch motor always had a great presentation, with polished components such as the valve covers, master cylinder, air cleaner, and much more. But beyond the shine lies plenty of substance. This V8 inhales deeply through an Edelbrock intake and four-barrel carb. It exhales with authority through headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. This serious upgrade even stays cool in traffic thanks to an electric fan. With all this added power, the original chassis setup would never do. Take a look at the undercarriage photos, and you'll be pleasantly surprised to see an adjustable independent front suspension that includes tubular A-arms and disc brakes. In the rear is a four-link with QA1 coilovers. Fun!
So are you looking at the ultimate hot rod in disguise, or a cool restomod custom build that will have everyone talking? The answer to all of this is "yes." That's why when you have a chance such an interesting and thorough build, you should hurry up and grab it before someone else is cruising in this one-of-a-kind. Call now!!
