First sold on December 2nd, 1927, the Model A replaced the historic Model T which had been in production for 18 years. The Model A was the Ford Motor Company’s second market success, of course after its predecessor, the Model T. Less than two years after its debut, over two million units had been sold and the Model A was considered to be a first choice of the public. Fast forward nearly 100 years later and the Model A is still a favorite choice of the people, but for a completely different reason. Today, the old school Fords, specifically Model As have proven to be the perfect candidates to be used for building hot rods. Their vintage looks and spacious engine bays allow for endless creativity.

Using a steel Model A body and fiberglass fenders, this 1931 Ford Custom was built into a bona fide street legal hot rod that comes with a truly sinister stance. Painted in a deep black, it rides on 17-inch chrome American Racing wheels with Goodyear tires. Wanting to keep the Model A heritage alive in the build, the ford taillights were kept, and Ford Twolite headlights were incorporated in the front. The sides of the hood were removed to show off the chromed-out 400 Chevy engine and speed parts that link back to the 700R4 automatic transmission. Stainless-steel headers, Edelbrock aluminum intake, a single-barrel Holley carburetor, and MSD Blaster 3 ignition can all be found in the engine bay. The interior features black leather bucket seats with a red V-8 Ford logo stitched into them. Modern day air-conditioning and an aftermarket radio can be found in the cabin as well.

With only 18,000 miles on this example since the build and accompanied by multiple folders containing receipts and documents of the build, the new owner can be assured it has been well-taken care of its entire life. A mechanical masterpiece on wheels, this car was built for the enthusiast looking to make a loud and noticeable entrance to any show.
