Sold for $18,700 last fall at Motostalgia’s Grand Prix Auction on the lakeside grounds of Austin’s Long Center on Auditorium Shores. Motostalgia, this June 12, is conducting a car auction the 2015 Indianapolis Brickyard Auction at the race track including the spectacular Austin-area barn find of vintage Cadillacs and others. See articles in NY Daily News, The Blaze, Washington Post, Hagerty and others.
So refreshing to see a vintage hot rod of this era with vintage performance parts: An Ansen aluminum intake manifold and a Stromberg 97 carb are visible. Powered by a 201 cu. in. flathead four making 40 hp, the stock car could do 65 mph, but this hot rod is more powerful and lighter. Ran across this wonderful vintage hot rod at a recent Hot Rod Revolution at Camp Mabry. Ford made about 4.5 million Model A’s during its short run, from 1927 to 1931. Manufactured in six countries and licensed to the Soviet Union for an armored car used in WWII.
