1930 Ford Hot Rod - Professionally Built by Gas Axe Garage - Beautifully Painted by Star Customs - 390 V8 By Avenger Engines - 5 Speed Manual Transmission - 9 Rear End - Beautiful Red Paint Over Black Interior (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1930 Ford Model A on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access the more than 145 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) Ol' Skool Rodz magazine profiled this 1930 Model A Ford hot rod as the cover feature in their August 10, 2021 issue. Take a look at this recent Gas Axe Garage build: a super-charged 1930 Ford Model A. Coolness trumps all and this build has all of the traditional cool touches. Its chopped, red-rock candy paint, black interior, and white tires will never go out of style. The body rides on a chassis built from pre-'57-ish parts. The front suspension is a drilled, suicide style drop axle. The rear suspension is '36 Ford radius rods with a spring modified into a ladder bar. The front brakes are '39 Ford with Buick drums. The chassis moves under the power of a supercharged '50 Cadillac 300 hooked to a Camaro T5 and Ford 9 rear end. The exhaust is built from an old drive shaft to get that nice, beveled edge. It steers via custom cowl steering. Finding the leverage and ratio for the cowl steering was the most challenging part of this build. What's a hot rod without a few fine details? The interior is covered in diamond stitching, including the custom-built aluminum bomber seats and trunk. Because of its big heart, the interior features a roll cage. The dash holds a 1958 Edsel speedometer. And yes, it works! (A copy of the cover article is included in the sale, as well as in the accompanying photo gallery.) Offered here is this remarkable, truly one-of-a-kind 1930 Model A Coupe hot rod. The current odometer reading is 77,000 miles. The details of the build and the quality of the workmanship are at the very highest levels of the craft. The exterior red-rock candy metallic paint is flawless: perfect gloss, and deep, reflective color across the entire body. Ambient lighting makes the red highlights come alive. Radiator, headlight tubs, cowl, front visor (with lightening holes), the underbody surfaces, and all four wheels all share the same color, and the same perfect finish. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Fine custom details (too numerous to comprehensively list) include the steering mechanism, door handles, taillights, and more add to the wow factor. Inside, the diamond-stitched black leather upholstery on seating surfaces and the transmission cowl is breathtaking (and it's replayed on the trunk walls, too). Ruby-red cabin carpeting adds the exterior color to the interior. The shifter for the 5-speed manual transmission (wearing a Road Weasels shift knob) is floor-mounted. Stewart Warner® engine-monitoring gauges are set in piano black with the rotating, original, center-positioned speedometer above. As elsewhere, custom details-like the bomber-type aluminum seats with lightening holes-abound. The supercharged 390-cubic-inch engine (by Avenger Engines) is fully exposed and beautifully detailed. The three 2-barrel carburetors topping the supercharger, together with finned valve covers, and angled, side-exiting performance exhaust make an impressive power statement. Viewed from below, the chassis exhibits the same high level of execution. The full-length dual-exhaust system (cutting off from the side-exit pipes) is particularly impressive. While the more than 145 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this stunning '3
