Description:
This is a real Henry 1928 Ford model A roadster highboy on a custom-built chassis. It’s a fresh build. The interior is leather with matching ultra-leather upholstery in the trunk. The seat heaters take the edge off on those chilly mornings or late nights and the custom-made art deco styled under dash heater takes even more chill out of the air. The 17” banjo wheel looks right at home with the custom aluminum dash panel and Stewart Warner instruments. The firewall has a second oil pressure and water temperature gauge to aid in monitoring engine vitals while tuning or tinkering. The 2” chopped Rod Top convertible top is easily removed or just take out the rear window for additional air ventilation. There are a pair of ridged plastic side curtains that keep 99% of the inclement weather out. They stow easily behind the seats when not in use. The body is DEAD NUTS STRAIGHT, and the deep black paint shows it off well. The reflection is absolutely perfect and ripple free! The underside of the body and the firewall are painted white to give a very classic and clean look while brightening things up when working on or inspecting the bottom side. The ’32 headlights are mounted on a pair of custom-built chromed stands integrated with the shock mounts. The ’32 grille and steel shell is followed by a steel hood custom formed with a teardrop bubble to clear the high-rise intake, carbs and air cleaner. The hood is held down with period style leather straps, buckles and zig-zag springs. The powder coated chassis is made of box tubing and takes cues from a ’32 Ford. There is a dropped drilled and chromed front axle, chrome transverse leaf spring with reversed eyes, chrome panhard bar and hairpin radius rods. Pretty much everything up front is chromed. The front end has ’39-48 Ford juice brakes with chromed and detail painted backing plates, finned cooling scoops and aluminum finned Buick drums. There is a custom made chromed and drilled “I-beam” front spreader bar with matching styled front shock/headlight mounts. The custom 3 core radiator is brass and keeps the flathead cool and happy. Steering is via cross steer Vega box. There is no bump steer and the car tracks straight and true going down the road. The 59AB flathead engine runs well and cool. Some of the specifics are as follows: · Factory relieved block · bored .080” · balanced · 8BA rods and crank · original Eddie Meyer heads (used along with intake by a racer in the Portland area in the 50’s) · original Eddie Meyer 2x2 high rise intake · Eddie Meyer finned aluminum air filter housing · 2 Ford 94’s (tuned with 4.5 in. Hg power valves and .047” jets) · chrome lakester headers (capped) with under vehicle dual exhaust · Harmon Collins dual point/dual coil crab style distributor · Isky Max-1 cam with Johnson adjustable lifters The ’39 style 3 speed toploader has an open driveline, is rebuilt and shifts smoothly. The rear axle is an open driveline banjo with 3.78:1 gear ratio. The side bells are powder coated red and the banjo center section is chrome plated. It is held in place by chromed split ’47 wishbones along with a center mounted torque arm. The rear spring is transverse mounted over the axle. The rear shocks and mounts are also chrome plated as are the backing plates for the ‘39-48 juice brakes. The wiring is clean and new with a scratch-built harness. All under hood wires are cloth covered color coded and laced with twine for that period correct look. I bought this car as an unfinished project from an 84year old long-term friend and built it as one of my personal rides with no intention of selling. It was built with few deviations from a true mid to late 50’s era hotrod. It needs nothing but gasoline to enjoy today (no excuses!). It turns heads wherever it goes! I’m putting the car up for sale as I’ve purchased another wish list car, so something needs to go to make room. No trades please.
