Presenting a riveting Ford Model A Hot Rod, this fenderless five-window coupe boasts a steel body, a fortified frame, and a robust 350ci Chevrolet V8 engine paired with a smooth-shifting four-speed 700R4 automatic transmission. Exceptional features abound, including rack and pinion steering, front disc brakes, an 8-inch differential, an aluminum radiator enhanced by an electric fan, and an array of aftermarket instrumentation. Acquired by the seller in 2022, the Hotrod is currently registered in the province of Alberta, Canada with an active and Normal registration status. Recent maintenance includes a fresh oil change in preparations for sale. With a mere 4.9k miles on the complete rebuild and driveline, this turn-key marvel shines as a proven show car and road-ready cruiser. Additionally, the sale includes a 1930 Ford Model A license plate frame, spare ignition, door keys, and a pair of whimsical White Hotrod Dice for adorning the rearview mirror.

For US bidders, this Model A is directly importable without modification as it is EPA & DOT exempt being greater than 25 years old. For more information on transport in Canda/USA and Import, please visit our Transport/Import page here.


Distinguished by an original 1930 Ford Steel Grill Shell and doors that open and close with remarkable precision, this Model A Hot Rod is a testament to craftsmanship. The VIN is prominently displayed on the firewall, offering authenticity. Suspension enhancements include a 4-inch SuperBell dropped front axle, a Traverse leaf spring with reverse eye, and a panhard stabilizer for improved control.

The rear suspension features a 4 Bar setup with a Panhard bar and QA1 Coil overs. A professionally boxed original Model A Frame with a kick-up over the rear differential ensures structural integrity. Other noteworthy features include So-Cal Disc brakes in the front, rear drums, a functional Lokar Emergency brake, and a Unisteer Rack setup. Vintique Chromed Reverse Wheels adorned with Baby Moon Ford Caps enhance the visual appeal, complemented by BF Goodrich Wide Whitewall Tires for a timeless aesthetic.


Inside the cabin, you'll find a blend of functionality and comfort. The trunk houses a stainless 12 Gallon Tanks Inc. fuel tank and a convenient trunk prop mechanism. A trunk-mounted battery with a disconnect switch ensures easy maintenance. Dual LED lights illuminate the trunk, offering practicality and style. The front windshield tilts open, and side windows are designed to roll down smoothly. All-new hardware and a fresh EZ Wiring harness have been meticulously integrated.

The brown vinyl upholstery paired with a plush carpet rug provides a cozy atmosphere. The cabin is equipped with a full set of Autometer Gauges, Ford Script sill plates, an Ididit Tilt steering column with a turn signal switch, a high beam indicator light, and turn signal indicators on the dash. Practical additions include a windshield wiper, dual 12V outlets for added convenience, a sliding seat for versatility, and even a Magellan GPS for hassle-free road trips. Fuel Injection has been incorporated for improved fuel economy, making it ideal for extended journeys.


At the heart of this hot rod lies a potent 350 GM Crate Motor, delivering impressive performance. Fi-Tech Fuel Injection, an aluminum intake, and block hugger headers further enhance its capabilities. Power is transmitted through a rebuilt 700R4 Overdrive 4-speed transmission, ensuring seamless shifts. The 8-inch Ford rear end is geared with 3.23 gears, while a new Walker 4 Core Radiator with an electrical fan ensures optimal engine temperature management, operating efficiently at 170°F. This Model A Hot Rod is not just a visual masterpiece but a mechanical marvel designed to thrill on the open road.
