1928 Ford Model A Roadster Pickup  Rod

Iím selling this for a friend who doesnít do E-bay.   He recently purchased it and his wife said it has to go.

This is a very professional build.  There is no plastic, fiberglass or wood used in the build.  It is all steel.

This has been built to look like a 1950ís build -  Old School but with some up grades.

The convertible top can be easily removed, left folded down, or fits into a zippered boot (I didnít take any pictures of it rolled up in the boot).  The side curtains can be stored behind the seat.

With the top up it does a pretty good job of keeping the weather out and there is a heater to keep you warm. There is no AC - you have to have the top down to keep cool.

The lights and gauges all work properly.  It has turn signals and several brake lights.

The engine is a 400 Chevy and it sounds like it may have a mild cam.  It runs excellent and has good oil pressure.   The transmission is a Power glide F0T06GF.  There are no oil leaks except for a drip or two out of the oil pan drain plug which can be easily fixed with a new gasket when the oil is changed.

I drove this up and down the road several times and the auto transmission shifts smoothly and the car brakes and stops like a newer car.

There are no power accessories.  It has manual brakes and steering.  It brakes easily but the steering takes a little effort when you are not moving.  When your moving you canít tell it doesnít have power assist.

There have been very few miles put on this since it was finished and I believe it was built just a couple of years ago.  My friend who originally purchased it has only put about a hundred miles on it.

I have all the original build information so there will be no problem trying to identify any of the parts that were used and there is also a photo album showing the build.

The interior and convertible top are in like new condition.  I can find nothing wrong with the car.  The only things I could find that need improvement would be the drain plug on the pan and the windshield could use a seal on the bottom where it closes against the body as there is air leakage there when driving, only a problem if its cold out.

It has passed the Texas safety inspection and has a clear Texas title.

I can take more pictures if wanted and can probably answer most any questions about it.  E-mail for my Phone number.

Here is a link to a YouTube video of it starting and driving:

This woman owns the first Ford Mustang sold in the US

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 11:29:00 EST

As Ford celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mustang with the unveiling of the all-new sixth-gen design, one Chicago women can lay claim to a piece of Mustang history. According to CBS Chicago, Gail Wise was the first person in the US to buy a Mustang in 1964, and she did so two days before the car was even unveiled to the public.
Wise, then a 22-year-old teacher, went into the Chicago Ford dealership wanting to buy a convertible, and a salesperson ushered her over to car covered by a tarp. That car was a baby blue Mustang convertible, which she still owns today - along with the documentation. After sitting for almost 30 years and undergoing a full restoration, the car now looks to be in original condition. The report says that this $3,400 purchase could be worth anywhere between $100,000 and $250,000. While this worked out well for Mrs. Wise, we wouldn't recommend anyone going into a dark, back room of a dealership hoping to get a jump on the purchase of a 2015 Mustang.

This Or That: Fiat 500 Abarth vs. Ford Fiesta ST [w/poll]

They're pretty darn similar. And yet our views are oh so different.
If you guys could read the transcripts of our editors' chat room, you'd know that we're a pretty argumentative bunch. It's always good-spirited stuff (well, usually), but when we're not obsessively covering this or that, we're usually fighting about one car being better than another. We're all enthusiasts here, and our automotive tastes run the gamut from the weird and unusual to the decidedly mainstream - we all feel strongly about specific cars in a given segment. While it usually makes for good conversation, if we're passionate enough, it can turn into a tomato-throwing showdown.

Formula Drift kicks off 11th season on Streets of Long Beach

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 17:44:00 EST

The 2014 Formula Drift series kicked off last weekend in Long Beach, and saw Chris Forsberg, who you'll recall went mad and drifted around a warehouse in an Infiniti M, take the title behind the wheel of his Hankook Tire Nissan 370Z (shown above).
Forsberg really ran away with the first round of competition, outscoring his closest opponent, second-place finisher Kenneth Moen and his Bridges Racing Nissan 240SX, by 20 points. Third place was 2013 championship winner Michael Essa and his Yokohama BMW M3, 30.5 points behind Forsberg.
In the manufacturers' title, Nissan took an early lead with 122 points, which isn't a huge surprise considering five of the top ten drifters were piloting either a Z or a product of the brand's S platform. Ford, which had two drivers (Justin Pawlak and Vaughn Gittin, Jr.) in the top ten, took home second place, while BMW is currently third in the manufacturers' standings.
