Bad Apple Rides has pleasure to list this super cool 1929 Ford Model A All Steel Coupe
This 1929 Ford Model A coupe was built by the seller from ground up, and as he states the built was done right. The coupe rides fantastic, sounds mean and is tough as nails. The seller built this coupe to what he believes the hot rod should be, feel and look like. The coupe sports a rebuilt 1985 302 V8 ford 4 bbl carburetor engine (origin unknown); for the purists, this is Ford on Ford. The power to the wheels is provided by Tremec 5 speed manual transmission. It also features mustang front end with rack and pinion steering and Wilwood brakes in front with drums on the back. The P225/60/R15 tires in front and P295/50/R15 tires on the back give the coupe the desired hot rod look and are complemented by the smooth moonie hubcaps. The seller states that there are no leaks, knocks or overheating issues with the engine or transmission. The transmission shifts to all five (5) gears flawlessly. There are functioning high/low beam lights and led brake lights. The signal lights are there but are neither connected nor functioning. The coupe is equipped with functioning plate light.
The all steel, rust/rot free body is shot with hot rod flat red, has been converted from five (5) window to three (3) window by the seller and sits on a boxed frame. The conversion has been done right, and all the welds were smoothed out. The original wood was replaced by metal, and the original firewall, trunk floor and fender wells were also replaced and fabricated by the seller. The door handles were shaved, and now the doors are opened/locked by power locks. The seller also installed manual emergency door opener, should the power locks fail. The windshield is rock/chip free and can be tilted out as intended.
The interior is clean and very simple but functional. It features only three working gauges – gas, temp and oil. The fourth gauge is a volt gauge, but it is not connected at this moment. It also has three (3) “idiot” lights for oil, temp and volt. There is no key as it is a push button start, but the coupe has hidden battery cut off switch and functioning alarm system. The seller left the door panels intentionally uncovered as he liked to see the window mechanism operating. The door panels are presently covered with Plexiglas. There is no carpet on the floor, but the floors were painted by urethane black paint that is peeling at some spots. The three spoke steering wheel is equipped with quick connect and sits on a chrome steering column. The coupe also two leather bucket seats. The 15 gallon tank along with battery are located in the trunk.
The seller states that the air breather was signed by Junior Johnson.
