Introduced in 1929, factors that made the Ford Model A a smash-hit—including its durability, reliability, and style—would also, inevitably, make it a popular starting point for customizers. But while hot rod culture really came into its own following World War II, visionaries were building bold one-of-a-kind creations based on the Model A decades earlier.
This unique 1929 Model A special is one such car. From its V-shaped radiator shell to its distinctive boattail rear, one-of-a-kind details abound. Its aluminum bodywork is left bare, rather than painted, providing contrast with its black fenders, black leather interior, and black convertible top.
