Description

We proudly present this stunning Ford Model A Hot Rod, finished in striking Metallic Green paintwork with Black Leather interior trim.

This stunning bespoke Hot Rod was imported from Texas by the late Graham Jones and originally completed by Home Grown Hotrods in Southend. Jon of Home Grown Hotrods recalls, Mr Jones a former Minardi, BAR & Tyrrell Formula 1 press officer would often source rare parts and bring them back with him from trips to various tracks. The Tudor Saloon body of the 1929 Ford is as new, and due to this benefits from rear seats enabling this fire breathing hot rod to transit four passengers. Fitted with a Chevrolet small block engine, stainless steel exhaust and Moroso stainless mufflers.

The car passed to Mr Monkley in 2015 and has since been kept in stunning condition it has had some remedial work to ensure it is in top condition for a continental trip to Switzerland and back, this included a replacement front crossmember, upgraded brakes, shock absorbers and suspension setup to assist in a long distance drive. The trip to the Alps was successful and this car often seen at American and Hot Rod shows described as totally reliable and easy to drive with an automatic gearbox that changes smoothly with its close ratios whilst the torque from the V8 is ideal for both cruising or street racing. A stunning one-off example for which viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this car.

Its estimated the build of this car was circa £65, 000 to build. When you look at the list of the following items fitted to this Hot Rod it not hard to see why.

In 2022 the owner spent over £10, 000 bringing the car back up to the standard you see today.
