Ford Model T 1929

General description : 1929 Ford 5 Window Coupe Before you saw a reality TV show on every channel cameras were following around the legendary Boyd Coddington as he rose to the top of the custom car world on his show American Hot Rod.  Shows like this along with Barrett Jackson introduced the rest of the world to the Classic Car hobby we all know and love.  Although this 1929 Ford Custom Hot Rod was approximately 75% complete at the time of Boyd's untimely and all too early death, the final product as finished by master fabricator and builder, Jeff Eischen, is 100% Coddington styling and design.  The car is actually the last car worked on before his death in 2008.  The steel body was chopped by Marcel's Custom Metal Shaping who also fabricated the hood and hood sides.  Doing everything in house Boyd's shop fabricated many one-off chassis components such as the torsion bar front suspension, bat wings and drilled wishbones. The car is coated in a deep Black that is topped with beautifully laid out Hot Rod flames.  The car has a great look with some great body lines.  The profile of the car is not like most Street Rods you see nowadays sitting nice and low to the ground without an extreme chop that you typically see.  It has been shaved with nice smooth doors and deck lid.  Round headlights are found up front and are nicely coated in Black.  It wouldn't be a Coddington car if it wasn't rolling around on the world known Coddington wheels.  This car sits on nicely polished Coddington true knock offs with brand new 15" and 17" radial tires.   Powering up this classic is a 350cid Chevy Vortec engine that packs plenty of torque.  The motor is topped with Barry Grant's Six Shooter intake with 3 Demon 98 carburetors that are perfectly adjusted.  Every thing has a nice finish with a polished Eishen designed/built finned air cleaner that matches the finned Hildebrandt valve covers. Other cool under hood stuff includes a Hunt magneto style electronic distributor, electric water pump, and a one-off breather system. The transmission is a TCI Turbo 350 coupled to a Winters quickchange with Coddington designed and fabricated rear cover and axle housings.  The leather interior has many custom designed features including the seats, door panels with billet spears and tachometer pod.  This is all complimented by the classic Stewart Warner gauges in a traditional cluster housing by Hot Rods by Dean.  The dash is cleanly coated in Black and works perfectly with the gauges.  A polished tilt column is in place and topped by a custom wrapped polished billet steering wheel.  This significant Hot Rod has never been shown and has test miles only.  That means you have a chance to be the one to introduce it to the world.  The car is beautifully done and will put all of those other Street Rods to shame.  Boyd was a visionary in the Hot Rodding industry and is an icon in the hobby. Make this amazing street rod yours for $135,000.00!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
