This 1931 Ford Model A pickup Streetrod has a true street machine vibe with classic hot rod detail like the V8 on display and growling side pipes
Plus, you get features you don’t see too often elsewhere, like four-wheel disc brakes and a sunroof. It all makes for a cool and quality build with added distinction.
The bold shade of yellow is a perfect attention-grabber that will give instant presence even at midnight. The paint is an even application that retains a good luster to show off the good fit of the doors. This light paint makes for a great contrast to the dark features like the black frame, tailgate inserts, and vinyl roof. But you may just like the silver details the best because they carry fun elements like the pinstripe done with a barbed wire design, and the transformers logo reminds you this looks like what Bumblebee would look like if he was born a street machine. That big motor on display is pure aggression, and we’ll give you all the details in just a moment. But it set the right tone to go with the intimidating forward-leaning stance that comes from the dialed-in suspension, American Racing wheels, short bed, and big rear tires.
The color theme is switched inside where black is the main color, while yellow is used for accents. Even the barbed wire pinstripe returns on the dash to show this is a detail-oriented hot rod. You have good fundamentals with a smooth dash, rugged rubber floors, and a nice feeling to the bench seat. Plus, the vinyl roof has a pop-out feature for a soft top-style sunroof – when was the last time you saw that?! This loves to be a true cruiser, and so you have useful upgrades, like the Grant sports steering wheel, column-mounted Sun tach, AutoMeter speedo, and a Hurst floor shifter. We especially like how they added more modern auxiliary readouts to the classic bright dash panel.
A motor like this deserves to always be on display. You’ll appreciate the details, like how all the valve covers and Edelbrock air cleaner are painted black to match the rest of the black accents. Even the wires, distributor, belts, and hoses are dark and tidy. Chevy’s 350 cubic-inch V8 is a great motor to have, and this is a later center-bolt cover unit. It has been built for power with a four-barrel carburetor, Summit intake, and wrapped long tube headers feeding the rumbling side exhaust pipes. It even has good supporting components like an aluminum radiator, a newer alternator, and the battery is with the gas tank in the rear for better weight distribution. This was built to be a good driver, and so you have a three-speed automatic transmission, a four-link front end, a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes.
