BaT Auction: 1929 Ford Model A Speedster

This 1929 Ford Model A was modified with speedster-style bodywork under previous ownership before being acquired by the seller in 2016. The car is finished in tan with matching upholstery, and power comes from a 201ci inline-four mated with a four-speed manual transmission sourced from a seventh-generation F-Series pickup. Additional modifications include a shortened driveshaft, a Weber 32/36 carburetor and intake manifold, a wood dash and windshield frame, bucket seats, a custom fuel tank, a wood trunk, and more. An oil change was performed in June 2020. This Model A speedster is offered with service records from 1998 to present, a cockpit cover, and a clean Oregon title in the seller’s name.
