Ohh hells yes this thing is sweeeet ! Flathead powered 1929 Ford Model A, with a quickchange rear end.
This is a rare 1929 Ford Model A “OLD SCHOOL” hot rod built over a three year period from 2007 through 2009.
It was built as you would build a hot rod in the 1950s or early 1960s.
Less than 500 miles has been put on the car since the build was finished in late 2009.
Below, is a detailed list of features.

ENGINE: 59A Flathead built by H&H Flatheads at a cost of $9,800, and includes Offenhauser heads, Mallory Dual Point Distributor, Offenhauser intake manifold with 3 Stromberg 97 carbarators carrying progressive linkage.
The engine builder says the engine generates approximately 180 horse power.

Approximately $70,000 was spent on building the car, not counting my labor, which was significant.
It is in excellent almost new condition.
I rarely drove the car after the build.
The speedometer shows only 41 miles, because I just got is hooked up, but the car has been driven less than 500 miles.
It runs really good, but I have not taken it on long trips or on the freeways.
It’s an “old school” hot rod and rides like one.
CONTACT INFORMATION: The car is located in Orange, California and you are welcome to inspect it.
