Vintage Ford Model A Hot Rod at Camp Mabry

Written by Ken Altes

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. Ford Model A Hotrod in Austin TXFord Model A Hotrod in Austin TX engine
