What do you get when you combine the aesthetic traits of a show-worthy street rod with the drivability of a modern hot rod? This incredible Ford Model A! With the universal appeal of high dollar eye candy, and the road going prowess of a late model cruiser, this slick sedan is a well built custom that provides its owner the best of both worlds. And what's better: you can have your show stopper and drive it too for a fraction of the money and time it takes to complete a ground-up build. If you're an anxious buyer who's tired of the 'garage furniture' culture that seems to pervade the classic car hobby, this stunning Ford is one of the coolest road-ready hot rods your money can buy!
This clean custom's taut Bruiser Enterprises body began life as high quality, hand-laid fiberglass that was worked, shaped and cured into a lean, long and low profile. When the car's current owner took possession of its smooth and solid shell, he promptly added thick primer and soothing gray single-stage. And in the fall of 2014, this Ford hit the scene as a banner showpiece that mixes the skill of experienced fabricators with the integrity of experienced builders.
When it comes to details, this sultry sedan mixes just the right amount of pre-war charm with high quality, 21st century enhancements to produce spinning heads and gawking fans. At the front of its body, a color-keyed spreader bar hangs amber Unity driving lamps in front of a polished grille and chrome-trimmed, dual-mode headlights. Behind that grille, a steel Chassisworks firewall anchors a sophisticated hood in front of a stainless-trimmed windshield that's equipped with a small traffic light viewer. Behind that visored glass, shaved doors and 2-tone mirrors frame a tinted greenhouse, a color-keyed fuel filler and Teak roof accents. And at the back of the car, sculpted taillights illuminate a bright tag bracket above a louvered roll pan. Stepping back, its safe to say the car's profile combines the clean, simple look that's typical of classic, fenderless hot rods with a number of rat rod accents. And overall, its first class build integrates the greatest attributes of both old and new into a unifying vision that establishes a lasting impression.
Check this custom's gray engine bay and you'll find a mean, 350 cubic inch BluePrint Engines small block that's good for 273 rear-wheel horsepower and 358 lb./ft. of tire-twisting torque. At the top of that Cast Silver mill, a finned air cleaner forces wind in to a coated Edelbrock carburetor that's fed through a small pressure gauge and polished Edelbrock canister filter. At the base of that carburetor, an aluminum intake hangs an aftermarket HEI distributor between finned, center-bolt valve covers and proven Vortec cylinder heads. At the base of those covers, high quality MSD Super Conductor plug wires snake around jet-coated Sanderson Twister headers. And in front of those headers, a tough AFCO radiator utilizes a big SPAL puller fan to keep the engine cool and the driver confident. Aesthetically, both the monochromatic mill and its assortment of bright accessories seem right at home inside their smooth frame. And details like trick dipsticks, a fabricated coolant tank and a fresh Powermaster starter ensure this classic runs every bit as good as it looks.
In keeping with its 'impressive but functional' theme, this first class Ford rides a custom-fabricated chassis that's been fully worked and professionally powdercoated. The smooth 350's power flows in to a rugged 700R4 auto that was rebuilt by Rincon Transmission of Rincon, Georgia. That 4-speed spins a familiar GM 10-bolt that, thanks to Powertrain Inc. of Savannah, Georgia, twists big, 3.70 gears. At the head of those heavy duty components, a Pete & Jake's Super Bell axle makes good use of familiar hairpins, a widened spring and a traditional, manual steering rack. Opposite that rack, a 4-bar rear half features tough coli-over-shocks. That suspension counters the engine's grunt with Wilwood-assisted Borgeson discs and drums. All that hardware rolls on 16-inch painted steel wheels, which spin staggered Coker Classic whitewalls around snazzy “V8” center caps. And a Tanks Inc. 16-gallon fuel reserve provides plenty of range while a Class II hitch provides plenty of hauling capability.
Take a look inside this custom and you'll find a spectacular street rod interior that, like the car's striking exterior, has been carefully pieced together. At the center of the cockpit, Hunt's handcrafted bomber seats anchor small, vinyl pads under sturdy Sparco harnesses. In front of those seats, a sculpted Chassisworks dash hangs crisp Auto Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite telemetry around satin air vents and controls for the car's Vintage Air climate system. Below that dash, like-new carpet floats a long Lokar shifter and aviation-themed consolette amid trick foot pedals, thick Lizard Skin insulation and diamond-plate kick panels. At the sides of that carpet, electronically actuated doors hang power-operated windows behind thin trim, speed-drilled pulls and louvered frames. Above those doors, a tight headliner frames a small mirror, a small dome lamp and Teak roof bows. In front of the driver, a simple Sparco steering wheel laps a traditional Everlasting turn signal switch. And behind the passengers, a chopped storage nook anchors a modern battery and small tender behind a sturdy, color-keyed roll bar.

What Customers Are Saying
I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
