1928 Ford Model A
Our 1928 Ford Model A streetrod was started by Ralph's brother about five
years ago. Before he could complete the car, he died of cancer. In 1995
Ralph acquired the project from his sister-in-law. Two years and countless
hours later, the project was complete.
The car is based on a steel Ford body that has had the top chopped 3 inches.
A Nissan Maxima roof is grafted on, providing a flat Model T look. The
fenders are fiberglass. The frame is a custom unit, three inches shorter
than stock. The front end includes custom spindles, coil-over shocks, Mustang
rotors, Chevy S-10 calipers, and a Chrysler K-Car rack and pinion. Power
is provided by a healthy 350 Chevy connected to a Turbo 350 and Ford 9"
rear, mounted on coil-over shocks. The interior features Fiero seats covered
in bone leather and a Wabbitt dash.
This car is driven regularly. In 1997 it traveled over 7,000 miles.
