1930 Ford Model A T-Bucket Hot Rod-D&M Motorsports Video Walk Around and Review with Chris Moran
An outrageous 1930 Ford Model A Custom Street Rod, offered by D&M
Motorsports. Hosted by Chris Moran.
The Ford Model A of 1927--1931 (also colloquially called the A-Model Ford
or the A, and A-bone among rodders and customizers) was the second huge
success for the Ford Motor Company, after its predecessor, the Model T.
First produced on October 20, 1927, but not sold until December 2, it
replaced the venerable Model T, which had been produced for 18 years. This
new Model A (a previous model had used the name in 1903--1904) was
designated as a 1927 model and was available in four standard colors, but
By 4 February 1929, one million Model As had been sold, and by 24 July, two
million. The range of body styles ran from the Tudor at US$500 (in grey,
green, or black) to the Town Car with a dual cowl at US$1200. In
March 1930, A sales hit three million, and there were nine body styles
The Model A was produced through 1931. When production ended in March,
1932, there were 4,849,340 Model As made in all styles.
Its successor was the Model B, which featured an updated 4-cylinder engine,
followed by the Model 18 which introduced Ford's new Flathead V8 engine.
Prices for the Model A ranged from US$385 for a roadster to $1400 for the
top-of-the-line Town Car. The engine was a water-cooled L-head 4-cylinder
with a displacement of 201 cu in (3.3 l). This engine provided 40 horsepower (30 kW). Typical
fuel consumption was between 25 and 30 mpg (U.S.) (8 to 12 kilometres per
litre or 8-9 L/100 km) using a Zenith one-barrel
up-draft carburetor,with a top speed of around 65 mph (104
km/h). It had a 103.5 in (2,630 mm) wheelbase with a final drive ratio of
3.77:1. The transmission was a 3-speed sliding gear manual unit with a
1-speed reverse. The Model A had 4-wheel mechanical drum brakes. The 1930
and 1931 editions came with stainless steel radiator cowling and headlamp
The Model A came in a wide variety of styles: Coupe (Standard and Deluxe),
Business Coupe, Sport Coupe, Roadster Coupe (Standard and Deluxe),
Convertible Cabriolet, Convertible Sedan, Phaeton (Standard and Deluxe),
Tudor Sedan(Standard and Deluxe), Town Car, Fordor (2-window) (Standard and
Deluxe), Fordor (3-window) (Standard and Deluxe), Victoria, Station Wagon,
Taxicab, Truck, and Commercial.
The Model A was the first Ford to use the standard set of driver controls
with conventional clutch and brake pedals; throttle and gearshift. Previous
Ford models used controls that had become uncommon to drivers of other
makes. The Model A's fuel tank was located in the cowl, between the engine
compartment's fire wall and the dash panel. It had a visual fuel gauge, and
the fuel flowed to the carburetor by gravity. In cooler climates, owners
could purchase an aftermarket cast iron unit to place over the Exhaust manifold to provide heat to the cab. A
small door provided adjustment of the amount of hot air entering the cab.
Model A was the first car to have safety glass in the windshield.
The Soviet company GAZ, which started as a cooperation between Ford and the
Soviet Union, made a licensed version of the Model A from 1932-1936.
This itself was the basis for the FAI and BA-20 armored car, which saw use
as scout vehicles in the early stages of World War II.
In addition to the United States, Ford made the Model A in plants in
Argentina, Canada, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
In Europe, where cars were taxed according to engine size, Ford equipped
the Ford Model A with a 2,033 cc motor providing a claimed output of just
40 hp. However, the engine size was still large enough to equate to a
rating of 24 hp and attracted a punitive annual car tax levy of £24 in the
UK and similar penalties in other principal European markets, leaving
the car unable to compete in the newly developing mass market. It therefore
was expensive to own and too heavy and thirsty to achieve volume sales, but
also too crude to compete as a luxury product. European manufactured Model
As failed to achieve the sales success in Europe that would greet their
smaller successor on the assembly lines in England and Germany.

My 1925 Ford Model T - A Closer Look: Transmission & Clutch
Enthusiasts Website: http://www.fordmodelt.net/
Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/modeltford/
In this video, we take a detailed look at the Ford Model T transmission,
afterwards taking a look at the correct procedure for pulling away,
forwards and backwards, and also correct braking.
I imported my 1925 Ford Model T from the USA, not far from Detroit,
Michigan where it was built.
The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various
names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just 'T'.
The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became
popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the
car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this
was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production
instead of individual hand crafting.
On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off
the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.
1923 Ford T-bucket Hot Rod
I thought you'd like a look at this 1923 Ford T-bucket Hot Rod. It was
originally built in 1994 and it's powered by a 355 SBC with an Dual
Edelbrock four barrel carbs. All the power is funneled through a B&M turbo 350 trans. It only weighs about 1800
lbs, so it's definitely plenty quick. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for watching! Be sure to check out Ralph's channel at:

necessities. We even brought our T-Bucket out for display one day. It was
great meeting all of the SCCA competitors and watching the races.
