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.

Automakers and their executives rarely like to divulge information regarding future goings on, but the board of directors at Ford sound like they're getting a little antsy about chief executive officer Alan Mulally and his plans for 2014.
According to Reuters, as news of Mulally's possible departure to Microsoft continues to swirl, Ford's board is looking to push the affable executive to make a decision about his future sooner rather than later. Apparently, the board is growing concerned that this will-he/won't-he drama may end up distracting the media from covering Ford's other big news events next year - items like the debut of key all-new products like the Mustang and F-150.
So far, the picture for Mulally's eventual successor remains fuzzy, but it's understood that the leading candidate remains the company's chief operating officer, Mark Fields. Just recently, we heard that Mulally will stay until the end of 2014, but a few months ago, Ford seemed open to the idea of him stepping down earlier than that.
Despite having to share Ford's Detroit Auto Show stand with the hot new 2015 Mustang, the brand-new F-150 was arguably an even more important debut. Why? Ford moved some 700,000 examples of its F-Series truck in 2012, making it not only the best-selling pickup truck, but the top-selling vehicle in the US, by a long-shot.
The 2015 F-150 raises the bar for pickup trucks in a big way, with big-time use of aluminum. Because of this, roughly 700 pounds have been removed from the truck's overall weight, making it even more efficient than before, while still offering all of the capability that pickup owners expect. And with a host of engines under the hood, including a new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, the 2015 F-150 will surely offer something for everyone.
During the Detroit Auto Show, west coast editor Michael Harley took a closer look at the new F-150, talking to some of the truck's engineers. Have a look at the full video, below.
According to Consumer Reports, the automotive brands that stand out in the minds of car buyers are, in order: Toyota, Ford, Honda and Chevrolet. This news comes after the magazine polled its readers, asking them to take into account vehicle quality, safety, performance, value, fuel economy, design/style, and technology/innovation - which are the factors that car shoppers are most influenced by.
It's important to note that this award is only about perception. In other words, it's perceived quality, not actual quality. "Often, perception can be a trailing indicator, reflecting years of good or bad performance in a category, and it can also be influenced by headlines in the media," said Jeff Bartlett, Consumer Reports deputy automotive editor.
The brand that made the biggest jump in perception amongst Consumer Reports readers is Tesla, which posted an impressive 47-point gain to finish in fifth place. Subaru is also notable for finishing in the top 10, despite being one of the smaller manufacturers doing business in the US.
