1931 Ford Model A

For Sale is my 1931 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan. Car has seen some track time at Byron Dragway, Cordova Dragway, and Great Lakes Dragway. The build of the car was to be reminiscent of the 1960’s drag race era. This car meets all criteria for the Midwest Nostalgia races that I have attended, Meltdown Drags, Run Whatcha Brung Drags, and Hunnert Car Heads Up. Has run a best of 12.69 @ 103mph. Car drives very well, tracks perfect, no bump steer, etc. Clear Missouri Title Please note that chassis pictures are from the initial build and that there is signs of this car being driven. It is not to be implied that this is in any way a trailer queen.

This displacement hemi was only offered for 2 model years, so is definitely one of the rarer of the early Hemis. Below is a list of all the main items in the engine, transmission, rear differential, brakes, wheels & tires, and main, misc. components:
