1930 Ford Custom Street Rodder Mag Feature - Amazing Paint, No Expense Spared

There is no way Henry Ford could have imagined that 91 years after he built the venerable 1930 Model A that it would be such an icon with car fanatics. He certainly couldn't have dreamed that a whole separate industry would be born out of customizing his products.

However, that is exactly what happened! Thankfully, we get creative people with a vision to explore the endless possibilities, such as this gorgeous all-steel 1930 Model A Coupe custom-built by Wheeler's Speed Shop and offered for sale at Art & Speed Classic Car Gallery. Showing only 831 miles on the odometer since its completion in 2007, this no-expense-spared former Street Rodder magazine feature car and Goodguys Rod and Custom show winner is still as stunning as the day it was complete.

We have to start with the incredible paintjob. After the top was chopped 2.5-inches, it was sanded to perfection before Eagleton's Custom Paint expertly slathered it in a custom green paint. When they were done, it went to Vandemon for one-of-a-kind white flames with red and green accents. The paint is flawless from stem to stern with nary a rock peck. All of the glass, emblems, and chrome are all new as well. Even the underside looks as beautiful as the topside, with chrome and stainless everywhere.

The rust-free painted chassis rides on a TCI independent front suspension with chrome A-arms, adjustable coilover shocks, and Wilwood power disc brakes. A chrome Heidt's independent rear suspension with adjustable coilovers locate the Jaguar style rearend with inboard disc brakes and body-colored axles. Steering is manual, but with this light little A-bone, it turns with ease. A big and little setup creates the perfect rake with Budnik Wheels wrapped with Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires (195/55/15 Front, 255/60/17 Rear).

Under the side-opening louvered hood, the engine of choice is a fuel-injected 350ci RamJet with a polished intake and polished custom exhaust. The color-matched Oldsmobile valve covers have chrome wire looms on top. An electric fan keeps things cool, while a serpentine front-accessory drive keeps the air-conditioning compressor and alternator close to the block within the tight confines. Power transfers through a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission.

The custom leather interior was stitched by Westminster Upholstery in off-white with darker green pleated inserts. The carpet matches the exterior with a floormat trimmed in off-white leather, while chrome trim adorns all the windows. The headliner above is off-white leather and houses the custom sound system head unit, which has speakers in both doors and two speakers behind the seat. Also, there, you will find a 10-disc CD changer and the trunk latch. Facing forward, you'll see a chrome tilt steering column attached to the banjo-style steering wheel, which is wrapped in dark green leather. Vintage Air climate controls sit just below the showpiece — Classic Instrument gauges backed by a gold mother-of-pearl inlay from Fender Guitars.

It probably goes without saying, but this is a one-of-a-kind show winner that will turn heads wherever it goes. It drives as good as it looks and needs nothing. If you are in the market for a gorgeously stunning Street Rod, this 1930 Model A is awaiting your visit at Art & Speed. Give us a call to schedule an appointment today before you miss out!
