1929 Ford Model A 5 Window Coupe Hot Rod / Rat Rod

Chopped and Channeled


I am selling my all steel 1929 Ford Model A 5 window coupe. The car is a blast to drive and gets attention everywhere it goes. The roof has been chopped 3 inched and the body has been channeled over the frame 2 inches. Everything about the car is custom and it runs and drives excellent. I don’t know the miles, or what work has been done to the motor as I haven’t owned the car very long and the previous owner had no history. The car is titled as 1929 Ford and is registered in the state of Texas. The car was built almost entirely out of the Pete & Jakes Hot Rod Shop catalog, also So Cal Speed Shop, Edelbrock, Lokar, Wilwood, Rocket Racing and other top quality hot rod parts manufacturers.
