Coming off the major success of the Model T and its 18-year production run, Ford knew that the next automobile that came from his factory would have to be even better and just as affordable. Henry Ford’s vision with the Model A was simply to create an automobile that was better than the Model T but simple and inexpensive enough that every family would have the opportunity to own and drive one. When the Model A finally made its highly anticipated debut on December 2nd, 1927, the world couldn’t have been happier with what they got. Seven different body styles were offered from the dealers, including the sporting coupe like this one being offered here. The Model A was another major success, and it put Ford back on top of the automobile world. The story of this cool '32 Model A begins with the vision of Eric McConnell. His vision was to turn this timeless American icon into a modern-day masterpiece. This RestoRod was created for someone looking for that instant gratification of owning a ready-to-go custom with all the bells and whistles. At the heart of this custom build is a 400 small block engine, with a Street Warrior intake, that is built upon a TCI Engineering chassis and top-of-the-line TCI suspension. An upgraded MSD 8570 pro-billet distributor was used to create a higher spark and voltage to ensure the current flow of power would be utilized to the max throughout the car. Under the hood, you’ll also find a well-presented chrome finish that is looking to be shown off at any car show it is driven to. The 700R4 automatic transmission and power steering placed in this build allows it to be operable by anyone looking to drive it, whether experienced or not. The highly sought-after Foose brand wheels complement the smooth glass finish, body and custom paint job on the outside of the car. Enhancing the custom paint job is fine line pin striping that follows the body lines from front to back, showing the contours and design of the car. An added bonus for the exterior is the vintage original Ford Twolite headlamps and vintage original grille that were used to bring the original Model A roots back into focus. Bringing together the exterior is the lowered stance that gives it that overall aggressive look.

Open the custom suicide doors and take a look inside and you’ll be equally as pleased. Fitted with stunning custom tan leather bench seating and a fully functioning Vintage Air air-conditioning system, its ready to be taken the distance on any road trip and enjoyed on the hottest days of summer. A tasteful Kenwood sound system has been added, as well as custom woven speakers in the leather throughout the cabin to add to the everyday cruising experience. Added interior features include a vintage original custom early Ford V8 steering wheel, power windows and expertly polished chrome pieces throughout the cabin. Quality and attention to detail are evident in all aspects of this very desirable, showable and drivable little 'Deuce Coupe' - its a modern daydream ride.
