1930 Ford Model A

Often a popular car to turn into a classic hot rod, the 1930 Ford Model A was created to help Ford maintain a strong presence in the market during a time when other cars began to be more affordable and practical. Ford’s Model A retains the sleek and dramatic lines of the era but minimized in a sense for daily use, as opposed to some luxury cars of the era that spanned upwards of 16 feet in length.

The Pick of the Day is a custom 1930 Ford Model A two-door sedan finished in steel body with fiberglass rear fenders. The car features a folding wood trunk rack, front radiator screen and custom red pinstriping, according to the listing on ClassicCars.com. A four-inch chopped top and a lowered stainless-steel headlight bar gives the car an overall sleek look.  The listing states that the suspension is a five-inch dropped steel I-Beam axle.

The Ford is powered by a Chevrolet 327 cid V8. According to the listing, the V8 has been bored to .60 over and includes a General Connetics Cam with a 290 duration and .452 lift. Mated with the motor is a 350 automatic transmission with a shift kit that delivers power by utilizing a Corvette driveshaft to an 8.75-inch rear with a 3:23 gear ratio.

The custom interior features gray-velour upholstery with original style handles and door pulls, and black-dial SW gauges.

A dealership in O’Dallon, Illinois is offering the custom Model A for $36,995.
