I had bid on this one but then decided I dindt need a 5th Roadster and came to my senses, fortunately someone else bid more than me and I was off the hook I think its a good deal anywhere under 15 grand. It is interesting reminds me of a race car, of the era.
29 Ford Flathead Roadster – all steel barnfind ratrod streetrod
This car was a barn find, a modified all steel 1929 Ford roadster. The frame and suspension have been modified. Rebuilt 24 stud V8 engine with Kogel Racer Rocket heads, and a Burns intake. The mileage is listed as zero because it is impossible to know how many miles are on the car, it is clearly a project car for the right buyer.
The owner had the engine completely rebuilt in 2010, receipts available. Engine had been stroked before but the crank shaft was marginal. They stroked it even more and put new pistons in it.
Cylinder head are very early finned alum. performance heads, possibly “racer brown” head.
The intake manifold is also very early aluminum. performance item with two stromberg 97s on it. Possibly a weiland manifold because “weiland” is spelled in weld slag.
6 volt electric system with a generator
Rolled rear valance
The frame is made out of I beam. Very very heavy duty with neat custom touches, like drop out trans cross member, etc
3 or 4 speed manual transmission
Standard Ford rearend
4 wheel drum
The frontend makes the car very noticeable. Dropped I-beam with parallel Dodge spring and spindles.
Car looks like it is in bare metal, but there is a “coating” on it that has lasted all these years. No rust on the car.
The frame and firewall are painted white.
Old blue steel wheels with baby moons and rings.
Has a forties gauge cluster in it for a dash.
No interior. the seat that’s in it now is one from a newer dodge van.
Some old school chrome, like the electric fuel pump.
Missouri title for 1929 Ford.
