1931 Ford A (Ford Toreador Red)

Modifications

Drivetrain
No hood.... but it's a 289 Ford, ManAFre 4x2 intake, vintage magneto, Edelbrock heads, Keystone Valve covers, Schneider Cam, backed by a World Class T5
Interior
Pretty bare bones...'55 Mercury dash (minus 16 inches), '65 Fastback rear seat and steering, vintage red metalflake wheel, hurst shifter with a spider shift knob... and three pedals.
Exterior
Basically a stock body, minus the fenders, hood, etc.
I typically get asked if it was complete.... or where you get pieces. The basic body was local, decklid was from Iowa, Windshield from Indiana, Doors from California, put all new wood in it, and a lot of patch panels.
