By 1927, Ford's venerable Model T was to be replaced, and the Model A took over the mantle. It was the first Ford to use a standard layout of clutch, brake, and throttle pedal, as well as the style of manual gearshift that we're used to today. Immensely popular at the time, it remains popular among the hot rod scene, which is where this particular 1929 Ford Model A Leatherback Hot Rod Restomod hails from. This car received a frame-off restoration that was completed in 2008 and many enhancements, too, including a new heart. Now, it sits patiently in our inventory, waiting for the right owner, and that may very well be you.
If you feel that this 1929 Ford Model A Leatherback Hot Rod Restomod looks just a little different to a bone-stock Model A, that's because it's had six inches added to the length of the vehicle. Sporting a green paint coat that's actually a two-tone job, with darker green framing the window elements, this vintage Ford looks absolutely stunning to behold. You'll find new powder-coated wheels, new glass and rubber parts, new chrome elements, and the tires are also new, including the rear-mounted spare tire. This is a car that may see its century birthday in a few more years, but it's been given a new lease on life to help it sail through with ease. Inside, there's a new upholstered gray theme with two bench seats and all the correct period fittings. Make no mistake, though, we're informed by the current owner that within the period look hides air conditioning and a modern audio player.
This 1929 Ford Model A Leatherback Hot Rod Restomod still contains its original 201ci (3.3L) carbureted in-line 4-cylinder engine, driving the rear wheels via a 3-speed sliding-mesh manual transmission. Drum brakes on all wheels constitute stopping power, and the current owner reports new brakes have been installed. With the entire vehicle looking as pristine as possible, you can confidently drive it home to enjoy and cherish.
