Forget trying to be on your best behavior in this car it won’t happen. This 1929 Ford Model A Highboy is about as pure a street rod as you’ll find. It combines old school elements into a modern build that will have you feeling like a teenager looking for trouble.
This car was an 8-year build culminating in 2012 with only 3,000 miles since completion. It was not just slapped together with junkyard parts rather it was carefully assembled with all new components. It has a Heritage Hot Rods body mounted on a frame from Brookville Roadster. The body was painted Hot Rod Satin Black from Kirker along with subtle pinstriping.
The suspension consists of adjustable Speedway 4-link setups front and rear. The solid front axle uses a transverse leaf spring, while the rear has QA1 Ultraride adjustable coilovers. Steering uses a Vega style box from Flaming River. Brakes are front disc / rear drum with a dual reservoir master cylinder and Speedway proportioning valve. Tires are 195/65R15 front and 275/60R17 back.
The drivetrain starts with a Chevy 350ci motor built for this car. This is a 4-bolt main 3970010 casting topped by 202 cylinder heads. Pistons are TRW 9.5:1 flat tops – perfect for the street. The motor also uses Crower rods and a Crower Hot Street Beast camshaft. There is an Edelbrock carburetor, GM HEI distributor, and ATS electric fuel pump. It all makes for a fun and reliable motor with more than enough power for such a light car. Sounds pretty mean too.
The transmission is a TH350 automatic with a B&M shift kit. The GM 10-bolt rear end contains an Auburn limited slip differential with 3.73 gears. Cooling comes from a Walker radiator with dual electric fans, while the exhaust has Sanderson headers with ceramic coating. The trunk houses a 16-gallon fuel cell.
The interior is as wild as the car itself, finished in simulated bearskin! Wow does it get the looks. The 8-ball shifter is a nice touch too. There is an EZ Wiring harness along with VDO gauges throughout. There is also a self-cancelling turn signal setup on the Ididit tilt column. You also get seat belts and a functional parking brake. Climate control? That would be the tilt-out windshield.
This car is titled as a 1929 Ford and includes a nice stack of receipts and a professional appraisal for $32,000. It is a well-built example that combines old and new features into an E-ticket ride that will have you grinning ear-to-ear. And isn’t that what hot rodding is all about?
