This 1930 Ford Model A Pickup earns its custom flames on the front with its awesome fuel-injected stroker motor shining in the engine bay
While that can win you awards all on its own, it’s just part of an awesome fully-custom all-steel build that has thoughtful premium details everywhere from the oak wood in the truck bed to the A/C interior.
From the first moment you lay eyes on this one, you know they got the stance to look just right. This Ford keeps the correct amount of original pickup with plenty of great hot rod touches. And that spirit goes beyond the silhouette. The Henry Ford steel has been massaged to look amazing, right down to the windshield overhang and fenders. But keen eyes will see that this was distinctly altered from the pre-war days. Not only have two inches been chopped from the cab roof, but also the cab has been stretched 11 inches. It’s an expert addition that gives this the same style as a five-window coupe, and you’ll understand the substance behind the style once you step inside. There’s plenty more custom work you can see on the outside everywhere from the smoothly flowing front end to the custom truck bed. Of course, the way the whole body has a smooth look is the unmissable sign of a professional build. And because this was completed in 2019 and only about 11k miles have been put on it since, the Burgundy Metallic Pearl still radiates to make the full truck look like it was candy-coated. Tri-bar headlights, shaved door handles, sport mirrors, an integrated third brake light, a smooth rear pan, and wide dual exhaust tips are all part of this detail-oriented custom style. Even the wheels are a thoughtful setup with classic American Racing Torq Thrust units that have a big polish and a 14/15-inch front/rear stagger for an intimidating stance. Also, it wouldn’t be a true pickup if it didn’t have a bed, and so beautifully oak was laid down. The lumber is so glossy, the only thing you’ll be using this pristine area for is displaying your trophies.
The driver’s remote opener is on your key fob, and so it’s great to watch people’s reaction as you pop the door from outside the car. And this also opens up a world of custom comfort. The gray tweed upholstery has a good look as it coordinates with the carpeting, headliner, and dash for a full uniform style. There’s a ton of comfort with cold-blowing air conditioning, power locks, tinted windows, and an overhead console that has both the power windows and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input. The dash even has a large screen for the backup camera. And the moment you sit down in the bucket seats, you know this was done with added comfort in mind. The extra room of the custom cab gives you more legroom, which is a very welcomed addition. And it’s built with the driver in mind with a Lecarra sports steering wheel, tilt column, and a full AutoMeter gauges package with large speedo and tach.
We love how the hood has the same tri-color inferno that matches the fenders for a terrific flame-kissed style up front. So it creates a bit of a dilemma because it’s also removable to let you fully showcase the amazing powerhouse underneath. Rather than list all the shining components on this fresh powerhouse, instead, we are just going to dare you to find another component that can be polished. And the way that the wires, hoses, and supporting pieces are hidden are all part of a thoughtful setup. Even the Walker aluminum radiator w/electric fan was carefully installed. Beyond the style, you’ll find the substance of a fully built 383 cubic-inch stroker motor with a four-bolt main. It has been enhanced and fortified with a custom steel crank, Howard rods, LS Pistons, a Comp Cams .525 roller camshaft, Dart aluminum heads, and shorty headers. It’s topped off with a Holley Avenger fuel injection system mounted on a Hilborn intake. This mighty motor makes a nice rumble out of the dual exhaust, and whenever you really want to bring the thunder, there are eclectic cutouts. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt to remain both stout and smooth. It feeds a Ford 8-inch 3.71 limited-slip rear end for versatile and confident driving. Plus, with a full custom chassis, a tubular A-arm front suspension, ladder bar rear, adjustable coilovers all-around, power brakes w/front discs, and rack & pinion steering, this is an easy choice to show off near or far.
