Description for Ford Model A 1929

Enjoy nostalgia traditional hot rodding with this 1929 Ford truck Model A hot rod. 86 years old and still going strong. You won't be disappointed with this driver. It's climate controlled, lenty of power and 20 MPG. This hot rod has been all over the southeastern United States. It will cruise at 80 mph all day long and feel good about it. This hot rod is ready to go. Don't miss the opportunity to own this piece of automotive history.

This wonderful survivor truck was discovered the the prairies of Phillipsburg, ansas. It was trailered in pieces to Arlington, exas where a retired GM engineer built the hot rod. I swapped out the engine and transmission, uilt the interior and improved my other areas of the truck over a five year period. This truck is right. It is surprisingly comfortable and it loves going 80 MPH all day long on the freeway.

I have been building and owning hot rods for over 50 years. I have owned many. I've never had more fun in a hot rod than this one. More importantly, ther people enjoy this car more than the trailer queens I have owned. If you want to make people smile. If you want to see a thumbs up. If you want to spend 30 minutes at the gas pump talking to people about your hot rod, his is the rod for you.

You can drive this rod on the street or it is set up for drag racing. Either way it is tons of fun.

Poor health forces sale.
