1930 Ford Model A Additional Info:

1930 Ford Model A Speedster (roadster). Mimics the old style race cars back in the day.
This is a running and driving vehicle that was assembled from a bunch of different parts and pieces from projects over the years. The car currently has no title with it and is to be sold with a bill of sale.
Chassis and drive train came from 1930 Model A with original 4 banger and manual 3 speed. It has been converted to 12 volt system and upgraded with more modern distributor and alternator. Radiator has also been upgraded to a higher pressure unit so the fill cap is located behind the grille shell versus on the top that was stock. Aluminum gas tank located behind the seats on the floor and a electric low-pressure inline fuel pump is located on under the car to get rid of the factory gravity feed tank.
Seats are aluminum bomber style with red upholstery and 2" thick high density foam and mounted on adjustable sliders and risers to the floor. The floor is steel square tubing structure with tongue and groove pine laid on top (stained with an outdoor wood deck sealer) and a painted steel toe boards and shifter covers.
Factory style spare tire mount on the rear with custom made bracket. Single stock taillight (brand new aftermarket) on the driver side. Tires are pretty much brand new ( less than 50 miles) and still have the nubs on them including the spare. Stock wheels with chrome center caps.
Cowl is an interesting model and not exactly sure what it is. It has a 28-29 style firewall but the cowl top and sides are more 30-31 style. Gas tank does not unbolt and is part of cowl. The windshield posts were cut off and the entire top rail was capped with steel and welded/smoothed. The bodywork is decent but it is not a show car. No major dents and no rust in the cowl was found.
Take a close look at all the photos and I have tried to represent everything as I know it to the best of my ability. The car starts right up and runs/drives. The choke wants to stay on so the rod needs to be held depressed (turn lock mechanism seems to not be holding). If you have any questions, please feel free to ask
Note: I also have a 28/29 or 30/31 Tudor sedan bodies available (at an extra cost) as well if you want a sedan body to put on top of this running car instead of the speedster look. This would get you most of the way to an old school hot rod.
