FULL CUSTOM SUSPENSION, MODIFIED 350 V8, AUTO, A/C, PWR WINDOWS, FRONT DISCS,

One look at this delivery truck, and you know its real purpose now is to haul more than cargo. It's a Ford Model A on the outside, but underneath, everything has been rebuilt to be the ultimate hot rod.

There's no question that this panel delivery van has an instant presence. The Jewel Red paintwork has the kind of depth that looks like the whole body was dipped in candy. New fiberglass fenders help disguise the modern Goodyear Eagles, including the taller 15-inch rubber in the rear for the perfect hot rod stance. There are other restomod vans out there, but 1929 is the perfect year. This was the first time Ford offered the sedan delivery vehicles without a special production order, and this was the year for the distinctive shorter body. The look was probably not as good for loading up the maximum amount of flapper dresses, flowers, or illegal spirits during the prohibition years, but today it has a cool 'shortie' appearance where the rear fenders extend past the body. This delivery even pays tribute to the original Henry Ford design by keep some faithful touches such as the bumpers and the canvas roof cover.

The interior has been fully customized to take this from an industrial vehicle to a comfortable cruising machine. Every convenience in this car is modernized, including power steering, power brakes, power windows...the leather bucket seats are even heated! The AM/FM/CD player has provisions for USB and an auxiliary port for items like your iPod. The dual pod package from Classic Gauges looks like it could have come from the 1920s, but it offers far more vital information. Cars of this era offered a clear view underneath the dash, and so the superior detail level has been extended to items like the tile steering column, pedals, and shift lever. Underneath the white and red interior is a full layer of Dynamat for noise and heat prevention. This not only allows the air conditioner keep the whole cabin cool, but it also helps insulate the rumbles that this hot rod shares with the world.

A true hot rod needs a beast of an engine, and this one has a mighty 350 cubic-inch V8. Is it blasphemous to run a Chevy motor in a Ford? Certainly not when it's been given some serious performance upgrades. The rebuilt small block V8 has been fitted with a forged crank, Comp Cams camshaft, and roller rocker valvetrain. Delivering the fuel is a Weiand intake manifold connected to a 600 cfm Edelbrock carburetor. The exhaust starts out in Patriot ceramic headers and ends its journey at the dual Magnaflow performance mufflers. The power passes through a three-speed GM Turbo 350 automatic transmission on its way to a stout Ford 9-inch rear end with a 3.25 ratio. There's a lot of torque that runs through this carrier, so it's a good thing that underpinning the vehicle is a robust new chassis. Since there may be the inevitable stop light drag race, there is a four-link rear suspension for clean take-offs and front disc brakes for the best control.

Ford's original idea for these vehicles was for speedy, safe deliveries of fragile merchandise. This hot rod takes that idea to the extreme, while providing some of the creature comforts of a modern vehicle. Call today!
