This next Ford Model A makes up for all of the Jaguars with small block Ford V8s (and Chevy 350s) that we’ve posted over the years…and leaves some change on the table. It starts with a 1930 Ford Model A Coupe that has been chopped and then adds a Jaguar inline-6 that has been juiced to produce some insane amount of horsepower if we are to believe the 9.32 second 1/4 mile drag time according to the seller (then engine needs a new headgasket, but don’t even think about putting a Chevy V8 in it!) We’ve always wondered where the old XJ engines go when someone shoves in some lump of American iron…well here it is. Find this 1930 Ford Model A Coupe offered for $14000 in Modesto, CA via craigslist. Tip from Andy.
Remarkable cars have an effect on automotive minded people. They make our mouths open in surprise and awe. But sometimes it is more confusion than anything, and here today we have a modified Ford Model A with a Mercedes inline-6 and some serious ’70s styling. You’d have to wear bell bottoms and rock some John Fogerty hair to drive this thing…but it might be worth it. Find this 1929 Ford Model A offered for $9,500 in Cottonwood, AZ via craigslist.
I’m all about comfort and convenience as much as the next guy…but repurposing your old Pottery Barn sofa as a seat for your Model A seems like a bit of a stretch. You have to wonder if it is even bolted down… Find this 1930 Ford Model A offered for $3900 in Scottsdale, AZ via craigslist.
I’m not sure what the going rate for an old Ford Model A Sprint car is these days, but I can tell you that this would be a great car to compete in the next The Race of Gentlemen or a daily driver for a fair weather commute. I can tell you one thing, to […]
If you tried driving a stock Model A around in modern traffic, you would certainly find yourself terrified being swarmed by grandmas and overly aggressive Uber drivers (sometimes one and the same!), but on the other hand a more modern Chevy 350 powered hot rod is seriously played out. Head for the middle ground and […]
Did you ever notice how much Eric Clapton looks like Hugh Laurie from House MD? Before you claim that all Englishmen look alike, I’d first like to point out that it isn’t because they both have lupus, but it might be because they share many similar visual traits. Two arms, two legs, two eyes, and […]

The Ford Model A is just about unrecognizable once hot rodders get their hands on them, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting your own A-bone. The basic recipe is to drop the car until the body is inches from the ground, chop that big open greenhouse into oblivion, and then stuff the biggest V8 […]
There’s a guy at who works at our local salvage yard in Charleston who has built a ‘rat rod’ out of various components skimmed off of cars on their way into the yard, starting with the body of an unknown depression-era origin. I don’t like him or his car because he yelled at me for […]
