1929 Ford Model A 5 Window Coupe in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
Looking like pure horsepower on wheels, this 1929 Ford 5-window coupe was inspired by the hot rods of the early 60s, and punched up with a few modern touches that make it an absolute pleasure to drive. Steel fenders and body? Check. A powerful 350 V8 crate motor? Check. A killer Viper Blue color combination highlighted by a super-comfortable A/C interior. Oh, you betcha. This is the kind of hotrod that will never go out of style, and every time you pull up to the cruise-in, all eyes will be on you. br / brbr The Model A was always a popular vintage streetrod candidate because its light and quite frankly because there were plenty of them around 50-60 years ago. Today, thats not really the case anymore, and finding a 5-window coupe this nice can be a real challenge. With more than a few tricks learned from, say, John Milners bright yellow coupe in American Graffiti it has exactly the right look that youd expect from a hot Model A. An all-steel Murry body, the raked stance, a 2.5 inch chopped top, widened rear fenders, and the open hood sides all give it a classic, race-ready look, not to mention those cool 1946-spec Ford Moon Eye hubs on the staggered wheels. The restoration was finished 6,165 miles ago and its holding up quite well thanks to good workmanship, and it takes a sharp eye to find any imperfections in this top driver quality rod. With a deleted bumper set-up, chrome is somewhat sparse, but thats okay because the brightwork on the tall 1932 grill shell, spotlight headlights, and polished front I-beam front axle does a sparkling job to add just enough contrast to the PPG Viper Blue finish. Other cool tricks include period-perfect, spotlight-style headlights up front, bright side mirrors at the profiles, 1950-spec Pontiac taillights with blue dots in the centers, and a 3rd brake light that was integrated just below the rear window. But purists wont offended by these build choices because the spirit of the 29 still lives on through that those flowing fat fenders and running boards, leather-straps on the hood, and the padded vinyl roof that pays homage to Henry Fords original design. br / brbr The deeply contoured two-tone leather buckets are set way back in the cabin, extending legroom and giving it a high-tech, modern look. Sure, theyre plusher and more comfortable for cross-country hauls, but they look right in the stylish 2-door body. Beige upholstery with tan inserts is the right choice, since you dont want to compete with the paint but rather complement it, and the durable materials still look great with only 6,165 miles on the build. Custom door panels match the leather upholstery of the seats exactly, and the plush carpets below do a great job insulating the entire cabin. The original Model A dash and instrument panel has been replaced by a slick-painted panel with a full array of digital/analog Dolphin gauges that are neatly arranged and keep an eye on all the engines vitals, and a Vintage A/C unit was neatly installed underneath and it blows nice and cold. A wood-rimmed 3-spoke banjo-style steering wheel sits atop a tilt column for added room for the driver, the headliner atop is stitched to match the seats and includes a custom overhead console that houses LED lights and a Sony AM/FM/AUX stereo. Out back, the trunk is beautifully finished with the same materials that adorn the cabin, further proof that this was a full-blown build where nothing was overlooked. Climb in and discover how easy it is to get comfortable inside this Blue Oval / br / But wait, this Model A has a few more tricks up its sleeves under the hood, too. The engine is a GM 350 V8 Crate motor topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and intake, HEI ignition, and SS headers; a combination that was perfected decades ago so you can hit the road without worries. Packaging is tight in the Model As engine bay, but thanks to careful fabrication, everything fits under the stock hood and stays cool thanks to a massive Griffin aluminum radiator and electric fan. A few chrome dress-up items, plus those finned valve covers, give it a clean underhood look at shows and the wiring is all new thanks to a full set-up from Painless Wiring. Its backed by a GM TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spinning a Jaguar XJ rear end that with 2.89 gears. The frame is fully boxed, up front theres a chromed, 3-inch dropped I-beam set-up, out back theres a full set of coilovers, and 4-wheel disc brakes at each corner give it massive stopping power for such a lightweight vehicle. A chest-thumping 2.5-inch aluminum exhaust sounds great and terminates just under the rear gas tank, and the entire undercarriage has been finished purposely to show-off. Wheels are stock steelies adorned with 1946-era Moon Eye hubcaps and they wear staggered 205/75/15 front and 275/60/15 rear blackwall / br / A classic rod with a few twists under its skin and a very reasonable price, whats not to love about this awesome Model A?
