1930 Ford Model A Rat Rod Blown Big Block Chevy 8-71 Supercharger No Reserve on 2040-cars
Bronston, Kentucky, United States
|Up for auction with no reserve is a 1930 Ford Model A Rat Rod. The body is in rough condition with no side windows or rear window. It was formerly a 4 door slant window sedan that someone shortened into a 2 door cab. The doors open and latch easily. The body has a new firewall, front floor, 32 style dash, and grille shell from Brookville Roadster. The grille is new from Vintiques. The body needs a lot of TLC but has been driven as is. The interior includes 2 new Bomber seats. The frame is an original Model A frame that came with the cab. It was also rough but has been reinforce by boxing and bracing. The frame has a 10 inch kick up in the rear. The front suspension is a drilled I Beam with disc brakes and radius rods and the rear suspension is the drag race ladder bar kit, both are from Pete and Jakes with Posie's springs. It has disc brakes on the front and rear with a new under dash brake pedal assembly and master cylinder. The rear end is an 8.8 from a 1998 Ford Explorer with 31 spline axles, a rebuilt limited slip, and new disc brakes. The rear has been narrowed to 56 inches by shortening the driver's side to use a passenger side axle. The electrical includes a new wiring harness and one wire alternator from Danny's Rod Shop, United Pacific Guide Style Headlights, 32 Ford tail lights, and 6 gauge set from VDO. The steering is through a new Borgeson 525 Box and u joints with a new Ididt Old School column and Grant wheel. It has a new fuel tank from Tanks, Inc that holds 16 gallons with a Mr. Gasket electric fuel pump.
The engine is a big block chevy with small oval cast iron heads. It is freshly built with a Scat crank with 4.25" stroke, Scat H beam rods, SRP pistons, UltraDyne solid lift cam and lifters, with 3/8 push rods, and roller rockers. It is fed by 2 new Edelbrock 600 cfm carbs through a new Dyer's 8-71 supercharger. The engine is 489 cubic inches with a compression ratio of 8.5:1 and the supercharger is under driven to produce 5 psi. The horsepower is unknown but it is powerful and runs well. The engined is cooled by an aluminum water pump through a Walker radiator that has a Cooling Components Inc electric fan. The transmission is a TH400 with a new B&M Breakaway stall converter and a 23" Lokar shifter. It has a new driveshaft with 1350 u joints.
This car is light with a very powerful engine. I have built many cars and this is the most dangerous but a lot of fun being very loud, very quick, and can break the tires loose with only minor throttle changes. The reason to sell is that I have a pro touring project waiting and want to use the proceeds to complete it.
This car is being offered thousands below cost and will be sold AS IS, WHERE IS, WITHOUT TITLE, BILL OF SALE ONLY. I will gladly cooperate with the buyer to pick the vehicle up themselves or with a competent shipping company.

The timetable for next-generation Ford F-150 may be in trouble if a report from The Truth About Cars is true. The next F-150 is slated to make extensive use of weight-saving aluminum in its body, but the aluminum alloy provided by suppliers hasn't met Ford's requirements in the earliest phases of pre-production, according to the report.

The F-150 represents a huge portion of Ford's profits and is the best-selling truck in the US, even in the face of increased pressure from cross-town rivals General Motors and Ram. While the current truck is treading water against its competition, we'd be lying if we said the F-150 weren't growing quite long in the tooth.
If production of the next-generation of the Ford cash cow, said to be based on the Atlas Concept from the 2013 Detroit Auto Show (pictured above), is delayed, it could be bad for Ford. Production at Ford's Dearborn Truck Plant is already set to be delayed six to ten weeks, missing an internal on-sale deadline of Memorial Day.
A legendary name might be accompanying the redesigned, 2015 Mustang when it finally makes its world debut - Mach 1. Stumbled upon by the team at Ford Authority, the Mach 1 title was found in a trademark filing with the US Patent and Trademark Office, and would revive a name last used on the fourth-generation, 2003 Mustang.

While the the 2003 vintage was well and good, the Mach 1 is really remembered for a three-year run from 1969 to 1971 - it's best to just forget the emissions-choked 1972 to 1978 Mach 1s - when power output ranged from a modest 250 horsepower with the two-barrel, 351-cubic-inch Windsor V8 to "375 hp" (actual output was rumored to be well north of 400 horsepower) with the righteous, 429-cubic-inch Super Cobra Jet V8.
What does the title hold for the sixth-generation Mustang? It's tough to say. The fanatics at Ford Authority seem to think Mach 1 could take the place of the Shelby GT500 at the top of the Mustang hierarchy, which sounds like a valid argument. At the same time, we could see the SVT Cobra moniker returning for the flagship model, and the Mach 1 doing battle with the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 (unless the Boss 302 were to return). Confounding things is the historical precedent - the Mach 1 was responsible for the death of the Mustang GT in 1969, so it might make sense as a volume performance model.
Ford has, for at least the second year in a row, teamed up with techno promoter Paxahau and a couple of artists to make music in recognition of the Detroit Movement music festival. This time, Movement performers Ataxia and Secrets were selected by Ford, and were invited to spend some time at the automaker's Michigan Assembly Plant, which gives birth to the Ford Focus and Focus Electric models.
Now that we know the what, how about the why? According to Ford, "Detroit is uniquely tied to the origins of the electronic music scene. In the 1980's variations of electronic music stemmed from inspirations of industry, including the automotive sector." So, there you go. If you're interest is piqued, feel free to read the press release, watch the video and listen to the tracks below.
