Description: new price! Awesome '29 Ford built in 1956. Early 1955 chevy small block v8, vintage paint and interior, east coast channeled look. The ultimate old-school traditional rod built in-period! So what does old school' really mean? It means this 1929 Ford roadster, built back when eisenhower was just being sworn in back in 1956. It is traditional in every single possible sense of the word because it was there when the traditions were invented. It's powered by a small block chevy v8, which is no great shakes, but you need to remember that in 1956, this engine was cutting-edge tech, kind of like transplanting a hybrid powertrain into your rod today. And aside from things like the gauges and maybe the brakes, there are not many components on this car that could have been ordered from a catalog. Instead, this car was fabricated, crafted, modified, and built by guys who didn't have a choice but to do it themselves. It's quite likely that the bright yellow paint dates from the 50s. It's got the right shine, the right patina, and the right black pinstripe details to make it look as if it might have been done by the guys at the corner shop. The body was channeled over the frame, a time-honored modification that was also pretty fresh in the 50s and differentiates this car from the hi-boy style that would develop in parallel but on the other side of the country. That's a real '32 Ford grille shell that's been sectioned down to size, real 1929 Ford windshield stanchions modified for the lower windshield, and a real deck lid that's been punched full of louvers, not pulled from a fiberglass mold. The thing fits together rather well, with doors that close like any Model A, needing a bit of a slam to make sure they're secure but never a fight. Frenched 1950 pontiac taillights with blue-dot lenses were another uncommon trick that's tiresomely ordinary today, but back when this car was built, well, perhaps nobody else had done it yet. This car is all about context. We don't know where the bucket seats came from, probably some british lightweight, and they're wrapped in pleated vinyl that was really the only way to do it. Matching door panels give this rod a more finished look and feel than many of its contemporaries and if we had to guess, they might have been done at a later date. The engine-turned instrument panel may also date to the '50s, although the gauges surely are not that old, although they're vintage-looking stewart-warner dials. The gas tank is in the trunk, which is nicely finished with some carpet and a simple access panel for the battery underneath. There is no top, no spare tire, nothing that would slow this car down, and if you need those things, well, i think you're a little too old for this car. The engine appears to be a 1955 chevrolet 265 cubic inch v8 with double-hump heads and a wicked offenhauser intake with triple deuces. The carburetors were obviously scavenged, and while they're all the usual Ford v8 type, one is Ford, one is holley, and one is chandler groves, so they have clearly been on the car for decades. It's got an adjustable linkage and runs most of the time on the center carb, which is the only one with a choke or idle circuit on it, but dive deep into the accelerator and all six barrels open up. At that point, you really should make sure this car is aimed in the right direction, because stuff starts to happen ridiculously fast. The finned valve covers were probably added sometime later but have a nice period look and there's a replacement aluminum radiator up front that's just smart. I don't know what transmission it might have had originally, but there's a sharp-witted th350 3-speed automatic in there now that cracks off lightning-quick shifts and never stutters. The rear end appears to be a mid-50s chevy piece, so that would fit in with the build period and it's got a great-sounding glasspack-style dual exhaust system that's aggressive but not tiresome, so the car's actually quite drivable. Four-wheel discs are a much newer addition, probably installed after a new owner realized that this car accelerates like a slingshot and could benefit from some safer binders. And those sand-cast torque thrust wheels may very well be decades old, wearing traditional' big-n-little whitewalls: 6.70-15 bfg silvertown bias-plys up front and 235/75/15 bfg silvertown radials out back. So if you're really one of those old school' guys who like them the way they used to be, it'll be hard to get one more authentic than this. Do a little automotive archaeology and find out this car's history, and it's surely a very special machine for the right person. Either way, it sure is fun!
