Vehicle Story

This 1930 Ford 5-window coupe is an original Ford steel body finished in Brandywine metallic over a black and white two-tone leatherette interior and is powered by a Chevrolet 350ci V8 paired with a Turbo 400 automatic transmission.  Equipment includes stamped 1932 Ford frame rails, performance headers, rack & pinion steering, and adjustable coilover suspension.  Located in Milford, New Jersey, this coupe is now offered on a clean New Jersey title in the seller’s name.

The original Ford steel body is finished in a House of Colors shade of Brandywine red over a gold base with metallic flakes.  It was treated to a show-quality restoration with the fenders removed, and the roof was chopped 3 inches. Additional features include Yankee turn signals and fully detailed chrome brightwork, including the suspension, headlight trim, door handles, and rear bumper. The body rides on a pinched 1932 spec frame with Kiwi rails that has been fully boxed.

Aftermarket powder-coated wheels are fitted with chrome “smoothy” hubcaps and are mounted to reproduction Hurst pie-crust tires.  The braking system consists of disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear, with rack and pinion steering and a Vega steering box.  The suspension is equipped with adjustable coil-overs.

The interior is fitted with a bench seat upholstered in black leatherette with white tuck-and-roll stitched inserts; the door panels feature the same two-tone pattern. Black carpeting coverts the floor, and a black two-spoke Lecara steering wheel was installed.  The dash itself is from a 1936 Chevrolet pickup and has been upgraded with AutoMeter gauges.  The audio system has USB connectivity and two speakers.

Instrumentation consists of a speedometer, fuel level gauge, coolant temperature gauge, voltage gauge, and oil pressure gauge, all from AutoMeter.  The odometer reads 2.9k miles, which are the miles since completion of the restoration.  True mileage on the body itself is unknown.

The 350ci Chevrolet V8 is equipped with three 2-barrel Rochester carburetors, steel headers, a chrome alternator, and performance pulleys.  It also has a Hayden electric fan and aluminum radiator for cooling, while the aluminum fuel tank has a 12-gallon capacity.  The battery was recently replaced and is located behind the seat. The engine bay features a molded 1932 style firewall with a cowl vent. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Turbo 400 automatic transmission and an 8-inch Ford rear-end.

Additional photos showing the underside are available in the gallery.

The sale includes a California car cover and supporting documentation from events and features that the car has participated in. The car is currently titled as a 1930 Ford Coupe in the state of New Jersey

@albatt – driven on highway at that speed with no problems . live in a rural area so i take backroads most of the time to shows and cruises. i don't go over bumps at 50mph and if i do the car handles fine for a hotrod. doesn't slide if thats what your asking. like most hotrods if they sit in a cold gararge and you don't start them for over a month it will take a few turns before they kick over. if i start it once a week no problem like any hotrod. if i lived in a warm climate would start every time with ease. will try to get you a video ...

Thank you for replying, the hot rod looks great, hopefully my son and I will be picking it up next weekend

@mroldtime – The 30 Ford looks great, but how does it drive, there is no written description on how it goes down the road, how does it steer, does it wobble at 70mph, what happens when it hit a bump at 50 mph, I am interested but without driving I am wondering how it drives, how about a video with a cold start and after it kicks down ...
