Change a few things on this and would make for a good old ride.
Up for sale is a 1928 Ford Model A Roadster.
Clear NC title which is titled as a 1928 streetrod.
I’ve owned this car for about 1.5 years now, and have had a ton of work done to this rig while in my possession.
Although, I have “rat rod” listed in the heading, this Model A is anything BUT ratty! Every upgrade and addition was carefully calculated and no expense was spared.
As you can see from my feedback, I take honesty very seriously.
With that being said, I will be as honest and forthcoming as I possibly can in this description.
In addition, I will provide you with contact info for everyone who as built or worked on this car for further verification.
This car is located just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina and I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE potential buyers to come look at this roadster in person…
You will not be disappointed.
As far as the original build, I only know bits and pieces.
I will describe what I’ve heard to be true.
To get the rock solid facts concerning the original build, please contact James owner of Broken Light Customs (broken light customs .com).
The car is all steel.
If I can recall correctly, it wasn’t originally a roadster, but a coupe.
Which was shortened and chopped.
The power plant is a 327 which was donated out of a Malibu with approximately 66k.
The 327 was complimented with a Power Glide 2-speed tranny.
The door skins were taken from the roof a 40′s model Ford Truck.
Seats were taken from an 80′s caravan.
51 steering column and wheel.
It was also originally equipped with rear Firestone air suspension.
Go to broken light customs .com to see pics of the Model A when it was first built.
James then sold it to a guy on the east coast.
The new owner rocked it for a couple of seasons with minimum alterations.
The only upgrades were a Holly carb, badder cam, and lakes pipes.
From there I took possession of the car and all hell broke loose! Although the roadster was already mad slick, I had to make some drastic changes to not only personalize it, but also to tighten up loose ends.
The first thing I did, was bring it down to Byron Spivey owner of SouthSide Kustoms in Wilmington, NC.
Byron totally tightened the car up from front to back.
Numerous body panels were replaced straightened and re-welded.
What used to rattle and shake down the road now road as tight as a Mercedes Benz on a cobblestone street.
The windshield frame was reconstructed the side body lines were realigned and blended.
Dash was installed.
A 1929 grill shell was also installed.
Custom steering turnbuckle along with numerous other detail items were completed while at SouthSide Kustoms.
Feel free to contact Byron about any of the upgrades he did 910-619-3654.
Now that the exterior was back to mint condition, absolutely zero rust.
It was now time to work on the interior.
As you can see from the pictures it came out sick.
I also had some new custom pipes made.
I also decided to get rid of the steelies and gangster whites.
I had custom wire wheels (16×6, 16×4.5) built and wrapped them in Coker bias -ply black walls.
Looking deep into the build I still wasn’t satisfied so I decided to rip out the air suspension and install single adjustment Ride Tech coil-overs.
While back there I also decided to replace the original gas tank and relocate the battery…and here’s where we are now….
Its been a few months an I haven’t completed the most recent upgrades.
Working full time and running a full time second business has left little time to build, or even drive toys at this point.
Its time to re-evaluate my priorities money and direction.
With that being said, I think someone else can benefit from rolling the streets with this bad @!@ rig! THE FOLLOWING IS WHAT IS STILL NEEDED TO BE PURCHASED TO COMPLETE THE BUILD Hardlines: fuel line, and front brakes Rear Coilovers Battery THE FOLLOWING NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED OR FABRICATED TO COMPLETE THE BUILD Radiator (comes with auction) Gas tank (comes with auction) Fabricate / purchase coil over mounts Fabricate gas tank mounts Fabricate / purchase battery mounting tray As you can see.
There really isn’t much left.
Honestly depending on what type of coil-overs you chose, your looking at around $800-$1000 in all the parts needed to complete the build.
Labor would obviously be dependant on whether or not you can do it yourself.
If your not a fabricator or don’t know anyone that can hook you up, your looking somewhere in the vacinity of $2000 – $2500 to complete.
That total price including parts and labor.
If you still need some more info feel free to contact me at: 276.614.7167 PLEASE ask questions…
Come by to see the car.
However, please don’t waste my precious time.
Please make sure you have money in hand or at least pre-approved BEFORE contacting me.
Currently the car does not have a gas tank, battery or rear suspension installed, therefore it will need to be moved on a trailer.
