1929 Model A Roadster Shay Reproduction
The seller states: "When I was younger, the kid across the street from me had a 1929 Model A Roadster and he had hand painted flames on the hood. I fell in love with the Model As that day and dreamed of what I would do with one when I got it. I have had a few Model As to date and this is a profession of the things that I wanted to do with one.
I bought this from a gentleman in Salt Lake City. It is a 1980 Ford Model A Shay Reproduction. When I got it, it had only 2000 miles on it! I brought it home and the first thing I did was take it completely apart. I beefed up the frame. I bought a Cobra 302 Mustang just for the motor and transmission(4speed). I took the motor and transmission out, had them completely rebuilt and installed them in the Model A. I re-manufactured all the fenders and body, frenching the tail lights with 60's Cadillac lenses. I changed the rumble seat to a trunk, chopped the windshield, and took out all the wiring and re-wired the whole car. All the wires are labeled - headlights, tail lights, brake lights, etc. It has American Racing Mag Wheels, 15s on the back and 14s on the front. It has the Mustang II disc brakes and a 4 inch drop. I have taken this out to the Salt Flats and it goes like a bat out of hell!!!
I am getting older and I have a bunch of cars. I don't want to sell any of them, but I don't want my wife and kids to have to worry about them. This is just like tearing my heart out!"
