1929 Ford Pickup - Money & Time Well Spent

Message  Predicta le Mar 18 Fév - 8:03

You could say I was brainwashed as a toddler. My dad has been a rodder since the '50s so it's in my blood. I built this truck because I wanted a change. When I was in high school my dad and I built a modern-designed '52 Ford custom, but during college while studying Illustration/Graphic Design my tastes changed and I gravitated towards the design styles of the early 20th century through the 1960s and I wanted a car that reflected that change. I also wanted an older car; having a custom was fun but I had always wanted a pre-'48 car and Model As are still pretty reasonable to build with the budget I had.

I had purchased a '29 pickup years earlier but it was in very rough condition, too much for me to handle at the time so I stored it in my dad's garage (it's still there on a shelf). After building the '52 Victoria and a '62 Chevy wagon I decided to start looking for another Model A pickup but hold out for one in better condition this time. A friend had started building this truck sometime in the late '80s. In 2004, he decided to sell it, so I sold my '52 Vicky to purchase the A.

The condition was pretty good. The chassis and driveline had been completed and many of the sheetmetal parts had been purchased. I thought my dad and I could have it on the road in a year. The pickup looked like it just needed to be disassembled, have some paint work done and then be bolted back together. As soon as I got it home I went and got the stock hood from my other truck and set it on the new one. The stock hood went over the grille shell by about an inch. I knew then it would take longer to get the truck on the road. We took the truck down to the frame and, using frame layouts from Wescott's, discovered the front crossmember was in the wrong place and was too narrow. Using Wescott's layout, we got the frame square and installed a new front crossmember. Every bracket from the rear tranny mount to the front crossmember had to be moved forward. I didn't like the way the rear of the truck sat so we got a rear crossmember from a friend and installed it 2 inches higher than stock to get the rear to sit lower.

We then assembled the truck to make sure all the sheetmetal fit. We also made sure the wheels and tires were centered in the fenders. This went fairly smoothly.


The battery bolts to the rear of the frame under the bed. My dad welded the louvered side of a microwave to the front of the battery box to vent the dry cell battery.

I didn't like how square the bed looked so I smoothed the bed rails by replacing the square edge with round ones. I made a roll pan for the rear of the box and made it look like it was riveted from the factory. The taillight stands and license plate enclosures also look like they were riveted. My dad thought this idea was taking way too much time, but liked it once it was primed.

The truck came with a new bench seat which I covered with an Indian blanket the first summer it was on the road. The back of the seat was about 4 inches thick which affected the leg room in the truck so I was looking for another kind of seat with a thinner back. My dad and I were at the Zumbrota State Theater one night when we got the idea of using theater seats. We were able to get some vintage seats with wood arm rests from the same theater.

In 2006, two years from the time the truck was purchased as a project, I drove it to the MSRA's Back to the '50s car show. Ten days before the show, with the chassis and drivetrain done, my dad and I assembled the rest of the truck, including painting all the sheetmetal and wiring it.

It's pretty hard to put a price on the truck-I know what I paid for it but I really don't keep track of how much I spend. How do you put a price on the hours you spend and the time you invest? That's not really what it's about for me. It's about the love for the sport and the passion that went behind putting together the truck with my dad and driving it.

Rod & Custom Feature Car
Jon Chalberg
Zumbrota, Minnesota
1929 Ford Pickup

Owner contact info: jon.chalberg@charter.net

Chassis
A stock Model A frame was boxed and new crossmembers were installed to get the Super Bell tube axle and Pete & Jake's spring in the right spot up front and raised 2 inches in the rear to give the Ford 8-inch some more room to move with the Chassis Engineering triangulated 4-link. Jon built a steel frame to support the pickup box instead of using wood and added two 9-gallon saddle tanks hung outside the framerails to store the gas.

Drivetrain
The small-block Chevy 350 and Turbo 350 trans that came with the truck didn't need much. Jon upgraded the engine with a Comp Cams Pure Energy camshaft that once ran in his '52 Ford, a Holley intake with a Carter carb, and a Pertronix ignition. He found an old oil bath air cleaner and modified it to fit on the Carter carb. Jon had been working with a set of Mercury valve covers when he found the Lincoln ones and liked them better and they fit over the Chevy covers without much modification. A converted brass fire extinguisher is used to catch any coolant over-flow out of the Walker radiator.

Wheels & Tires
The Wheelsmith smoothie steelies (14x5s and 15x7s) are capped with `40 Ford pickup hubcaps and trim rings and wrapped in Firestone FR380 185/65R14s and A/S Radial Road Runner 235/75R15s. A set of Kelsey wires is on Jon's list of possible changes.

Body & Paint
Jon and his dad, Dave, tackled the body combining the best pieces from his two pickups. The gas tank filler was removed and the tank was welded to the cowl to remove the seam. The top of the two-piece Rootlieb hood was louvered, the firewall was recessed 4 inches and a custom rear roll pan was built with a recessed license plate and installed with rivets. `32 Ford door handles were added for a 3 year newer look. Once the body was in shape and fit the chassis, Dave took control and sprayed a mixture of black and red oxide epoxy primer. Lighting is provided by stock Model A headlights on a dropped bar and `48 Ford taillights. A LeBaron-Bonney top kit caps it all.

Interior
A set of vintage theater seats dominates the interior and is the thing most people leave talking about. Airplane seatbelts from a US military surplus store keep Jon buckled in. The stock dash was replaced with a Brookville '32-style Model A dash with a So-Cal Fender Pearl insert filled with Mooneyes gauges and a '37 Ford radio face. A `40 Ford column was used with a LeCarra Mark `40 wheel. The Gennie Shifter stick is capped with a bullet shell knob. The old Steward Warner gas heater has been gutted and is now home to a set of Infinity 31/2-inch speakers working with a Pioneer head unit mounted behind the seats along with a pair of Alpine 5x7 speakers.

1928 Ford Roadster - Teenage Kicks

Message  Predicta le Ven 7 Mar - 6:48

Some of you may have already seen this Flatty-motored A roadster starring on Hot Rod TV, so when we met its owner Jordan Graham at the West Coast Kustoms show in Santa Maria, we figured the story behind its build was worth sharing. After all, there aren't many teenagers who get their own TV show, let alone many who have built their second traditional hot rod and still own them both! Also, Jordan tackled pretty much all the work on his rods himself, with advice from old-time hot rodders in his local area. Coming from the Solvang area of California, near Santa Barbara, this isn't surprising, but a lot of these guys that Jordan looked up to have passed away, and according to Jordan, "With a lot of their generation going away fast, I wanted to carry it on for all of them. I've taken their advice over the years and did what I've done to impress them.

"When I was 15 years old, my pops, Bill, moved into a new shop. Next door were eight old cars from 1924 to 1931. The widow who owned what had been her husband's obsession wanted me to dust the cars and get them off the ground onto jack stands. One day she asked if I'd like a car from her other property. My 15-year-old face lit up and I picked out a '31 Ford coupe, really rusty, tired, and stuck in the dirt.

"For the next two years I ground, welded, and pieced together a hot rod (the one in the background of these pictures) the way my heroes would have. The way they told me it was. My main influence was my best friend's grandpa, Yankie Breck. He was paralyzed in '68 and had a '32 five-window in his garage.
1928 Ford Roadster Popeye

"After the coupe was finished, I decided someone locally had to start dropping axles. I thought of a plan and design and went for it, and have now dropped approximately 400 early Ford axles as the owner of Nostalgia Drop. I've been trying to build just plain bitchin' hot rods ever since.

"After realizing my goal of driving my coupe through my senior year of high school, I got a call one day from my good friend Jack Chard, who ran the lakes and streets of Santa Barbara in the '50s. He told me he'd just dug a '28 Model A roadster out of his brother's backyard where it had been sitting for more than 50 years. I was stoked; my dream car finally came up, and the good friend that he is, Jack gave me the car. Now it wasn't like you could just buff the paint and drive it; it had sat next to the ocean for 50 years and the rust was incredible, but I was young and had ambition up to my neck.

"Shortly after this, I delivered a dropped axle I'd donated to an episode of Hot Rod TV. They asked if I could weld and before I knew it I was working on the show as a fabricator. When the show aired, the producer Bud Brutsman wanted to thank me for the help and offered me a 30-minute episode to build a car. Wow! That was a lot to ask from an 18-year-old kid. Come December 2007, I had a build together for them: the '28 roadster body, a '32 frame, and Hallock windshield...

"We started shooting and it really set in that I had my own show with a real deadline of April 8! I worked night and day, seven days a week, periodically filming segments of the build. On April 6, I was in a rush making door panels in a stomp shear when it bit back and took an inch off my index finger. The 8th was the last day of filming and while I was in the hospital my dad and good friend Finn Lund slaved away to get the car running for the deadline so I could drive it to wrap up the show. I've been driving it ever since, with Santa Maria being its maiden outing to a show. I'd really like to thank my dad for rebuilding the trans and rearend, Adam Booth, Katrina, my girlfriend, and Finn Lund for making the most bitchin' floor for me."

Now most of us know that all those cars you see built on TV shows are either not quite finished, or nowhere near finished, and though Jordan's roadster was done and driving by the deadline, he's the first to admit that, though the experience was cool, the timetable of three months meant it didn't afford him the time to build it as perfectly as he'd have liked. But it's his daily driver, which means it's done for now, and that's just fine with us!

Rod & Custom Feature Car
Owner contact info: dropaxle@yahoo.com
Jordan Graham
Solvang, California
1928 Ford Roadster

Chassis
An original '32 frame, or rather now just the boxed 'rails, sits under that roadster body, employing a Model A front crossmember with 2 inches removed from its height, and a 4-inch swept kick-up in the rear where you'll find a Model A rear crossmember. A '40 Ford X-member and pedal make up the center of the chassis, all work handled by Jordan, who also dropped the '32 "heavy" axle used up front by 2 inches. Original '40 spindles and brakes and a stock Model A spring complete the frontend, with shocks still to come! A heated and 2-inch dropped Model A rear spring supports a '41 Mercury rearend; both front and rear springs were wrapped in army electrical tape, a trick suggested by the late Yankie Breck.

Drivetrain
Working forward from that Merc rearend, Jordan shortened an original '32 torque tube while his dad Bill rebuilt a '32 transmission and coupled it with a '36 shifter. This connects through a stock flywheel to a '49 Mercury Flathead V-8 that came into Jordan's possession as an old hopped-up motor of unknown origin. He reports the compression is "crappy," though it contains an Isky cam and uses Offenhauser heads and intake. The twin carbs are Barry Grant Demon 98s, while the only other concession to modernity is the Mallory ignition. 1936 driveshafts cut in half form the basis of the headers, with no mufflers.

Wheels & Tires
Some 16x4-inch '40 Ford steelies support each corner of the roadster, a rubber rake provided by choosing 7.50-16 Silvertowns in the rear and 6.00-16 BFGoodrich hoops up front, bias-plies all around naturally, and with wide whitewalls. Coupled with the black painted wheels, the color scheme blends with the rest of the car.

Body & Paint
The body was truly trashed when it was given to Jordan, requiring patch panels all the way round. The subrails were gone and the rust extended 6 inches up the body throughout. After tackling the repairs, he welded in a '31 Chevy coupe dash. The Deuce grille was chopped 3 inches to fit the profile of the body, before Duplicolor pearl white was sprayed on most of the body and frame, the remainder being finished in black. Melvin Harris then added the Popeye graphics to the cowl, the Steve Sellers-supplied Hallock windshield went on, and a '28 Chevy gas tank went into the trunk. Jordan is currently working on an aluminum hood.

Interior
A more eclectic bunch of components you'd be hard-pressed to find, but they work in this roadster. Mismatched metal mail truck seats supply creature comforts (really?!) with a '38 Ford steering wheel topping the '32 column. Jordan wrote "mahogany and maple" in the carpet section of his tech sheet, and this also forms the firewall between the cockpit and the trunk, and certainly provides a different look than most roadsters. Those door panels that took his finger are still not fitted though.

1929 Ford Roadster Nostalgia Hot Rod

Message  Predicta le Lun 24 Mar - 7:13


A lot of newer street rodders don't appreciate the vintage ‘29 Ford as much as their 32's but this one is sure to give them a run for their money. It is done in such a way as to combine the two looks into one cool machine. The major difference is you can get this one for a fraction of the price! A lot of the street rods around nowadays are new age fiberglass but this one is an ALL STEEL Henry Ford body. That means it was created and rolled out of the factory 85 years ago! The fact that it is still around and laser straight is absolutely amazing! The 1929 Ford body is nicely mounted to the 32' Ford frame giving it some extra length for the chrome spreader bar. The front end looks even more like a 32' with the addition of the 32' steel grill shell. The chrome grill has a great shine along with the Ford logo and trim. The body, frame, and grill shell are all coated in bright yellow and is buffed out to a great shine. Pin striping by the legendary Larry West who designed the Coors graphic on Bill Elliott’s NASCAR T-Bird. When we say this is a nostalgic old-school hot rod we should probably explain what we mean. It's not that this car was done in this style recently. No. This style actually started the trend in the late 50s and early ‘60s! Being built in the late 50's this is what people are after when they are currently building "old school" rods. The car was later restored in 2000, refreshed in 2011 and refreshed again in 2013. Large chrome front headlights and circle frenched purple-dot taillights. The trunk utilizes all chrome hardware including the hinges and is louvered. In true nostalgia style the car rolls around on American Racing Torque Thrust D wheels with white wall tires (all with fewer than 300 miles). And 4-wheel disc brakes added last year.

1956 CHEVROLET MOTOR BORED .060 OVER

DOUBLE-HUMP HEADS

3 HOLLEY 94 CARBS

OFFENHAUSER INTAKE

CHROMED FINNED VALVE COVERS

TURBO 350 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

LOKAR SHIFTER

280 COMP CAM

ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP

ELECTRONIC IGNITION

ALUMINIUM RADIATOR

57' CHEVY 3:73 REAR END

Engine was torn-down and rebuilt by TDS in Covington (Travis Domini, who has built 4 motors for me, both for street and strip. I swear by him.) replacing what needed to be replaced. Runs GREAT! Less than 300 miles since rebuild.

The interior of the car is nicely finished out with two Black bucket seats that are very comfortable. The dash is topped with Stewart Warner wing gauges mounted in a nice brushed bezel. On the floorboard is mounted the Lokar shifter. An aftermarket steering wheel is nicely mounted in place with a nice chrome horn button. To the column a tachometer has been added and works just as it should. All of the rubbers have been replaced on the car when it was entirely gone through.

So, what’s wrong with it? A minor sign of wear on the left rear upholstery panel (see pic). The speedometer is not accurate. There is a gizmo to correct that but I have never bothered with it. Parking brake is not working. It is the drive shaft parking brake variety.

The front end is made up of MT Brakes 39 Lincoln backing plates, Buick polished 45 fin drums with Wilson welding adapters, a So-Cal forged drilled I-beam axle. Posi super slide spring, chrome Pete & Jakes shocks & Hairpin radius rods. The engine is a fresh Chevy 396 built by Paul Williams Motorsports. Built w/ Forged parts to add Nitrous Oxide if you choose. It has a chrome mini starter, custom Lakes style headers w/ baffles, Edelbrock endurashine Air gap manifold, Demon 650cfm carb, MSD Distributor & Coil, finned aluminum Valve covers & air cleaner. The transmission is a Corvette 700R4 rebuilt by Gil's transmission of Bakersfield. it is setup with a Bowtie Overdrives TV Cable setup.

The car is highly detailed & well engineered. It always turns heads, wins shows & gets attention from the magazines. It is very fast & dependable. This is not a roomy car. I am 6' & 240lbs & drive it on fairly long trips but, the car is channeled & leg room is tight.

1929 Ford Sport Coupe

Message  Predicta le Mar 20 Mai - 6:07


This is a 1929 Ford Model A Sport Coupe. It's traditional style is what you'd expect to see in the 40's or 50's built by returning servicemen after the war with lots of imagination, skill, creativity and a need for speed. It's been upgraded with a strong 1969 Chevy 327 with a lumpy cam, TH350 automatic trans with a Lokar shifter, and a rear axle from a '57 Chevy. Chevy drivetrain in a Ford....the best of both worlds! It also has Weld Engineering finned front drum brakes that bring this car to a halt with ease, a rare and wicked cool Edelbrock X-1 6-pack intake manifold with six Ford script carbs, Cal Custom finned valve covers, '40 Ford steel wheels, split front bones, a Walker radiator, a fully boxed Model A frame, buggy rear spring, Pete & Jakes ladder bars, lakes style headers, '36 Ford dash, custom aluminum interior panels, a chopped custom made aluminum riveted top (not pop-rivets, these are aircraft grade aluminum rivets), custom aluminum rear fenders, and on and on and on. Headlights are from a 30's Cadillac and have been upgraded to a halogen system and work great. I guarantee that you'll NEVER see another one like this anywhere. It stands out amongst the throng of other Model A hotrods. It's always the hit of the show wherever I drive this beauty. It's finished in a teal gray 2-stage urethane paint. Make no mistake, this is a real HOT ROD, no radio, no air-conditioning, this not a creature-comfort-laden street rod or Cadillac. If that's what you want, look elsewhere. It runs and drives like a hot rod should: fast and furious and all business! It has it's share of wear from normal use, but it looks great and gets thumbs up galore. Don't expect a Ridler award winning hot rod for what I'm asking! This is a real steel Henry Ford body. Not a repop, not fiberglass. It's the real deal! Front windshield is nice and clear, swings out like the originals did (I guess that was Henry's concept of "air conditioning", lol). Door glass is great too, windows crank up and down but a little stiff. Might need some adjustment, but I only drive this car in beautiful weather so I leave them rolled down. All in all it's a great traditionally inspired hot rod that gathers attention everywhere it goes.

1929 Tudor Traditional Hot Rod Flathead

Message  Predicta le Mer 28 Mai - 5:37


This is an original steel 1929 Ford Tudor Sedan that has been chopped 6" & channeled 4" over an original modified Model A frame. The frame was swept up in the front & kicked up in the rear. Front of frame is original, with a Model A VIN that matches the open title! Frame is boxed & with an aftermarket dropped Model A front crossmember, rear of the frame is 2"x 4" box tubing with custom made rear crossmember. Center K member is custom built which includes the Pete & Jake's ladder bar crossmember. Steering is an original F1 steering box & pitman arm. All rust was removed or treated with Eastwood Rust Encapsulator. The front lower cowl panels were replaced, as well as the lower door skins. Patches were used on the quarters. All body work & paint were done with quality products! Paint, sealer & primer were all PPG. Body was taken down to metal & coated with a combo of Eastwood Rust encapsulator & DP 90. Primer was PPG DP74 & paint was PPG Deltron. The color was "Semi Gloss" cleared with PPG Flexed N Flat & PPG DCU 2021 Clear Coat. I have leftovers that can all go with with the car.

The engine is a freshly rebuilt 1950 8ba flathead with Offenhauser heads, Mallory dual point distributor, Edelbrock intake with 3 Holley 94's set up with progressive linkage. Carburetors are freshly rebuilt including new oversized throttle shafts fitted to the bases, 12 degree secondary blades, power valve block offs in the outer carbs, new gaskets, etc. Headers are fully tig welded Lakes Style headers. There is no other exhaust on the car. I replaced the stock water pumps with new Speedway water pumps about 8 months ago because one of the originals began to leak. The radiator is a custom built 3 row aluminum radiator (painted black to hide it's non-traditional feel) that is cooled by an electric fan (only other non-traditional item on the car) mounted under the '34 Ford Truck grille shell. Unknown amount of chop on the grille shell because it was already chopped when I bought it. Transmission is a 1950 ford 3 Speed that works flawlessly! The shifter is an old Hurst shifter, with modified handle for space & convenience.

Front suspension is a 4" Superbell dropped axle with Superbell spindles and Pete & Jake's dropped steering arms hung out front from original split wishbones. It has a super quiet Posie's Superslider front spring with chrome shocks hung from F1 shock mounts. Rear suspension is Pete & Jake's ladder bars holding a very nice '47 Ford Truck rear, open drive banjo axle with 3.78's, Chrome shocks & a Posie's Superslider '40 Ford spring. Original Ford 16" steelies are wrapped with Firestone Deluxe Champion 6.00's up front & 7.00's out back.

Wiring is a Rebel wiring harness, all soldered & shrink wrapped & covered with asphalt loom to keep with the traditional feel of the car! Head lights are original Model A with 12V bulbs mounted with SoCal Speed Shop stainless headlight mounts. Tail lights are '59 Cadillac bullets tastefully Frenched into the body.

Fuel system consists of an 11 gallon fuel cell that feeds a Carter electric fuel pump, set up with all necessary relays/wiring & regulated by a Holley fuel pressure regulator mounted where the factory fuel pump is located on the flathead. A 3 port fuel log feeds the 3 Holley's.
