Now here is a different take on a Ford Model A hot rod. Most A based hot rods follow the same well beaten path but this one is certainly going it’s own way. Looking at the first photo it almost looks like someone has taken the photo with a fish eye lens …
but that is the actual length of it. Must be a wild ride with a Chevrolet small block V8 and a tiny wheelbase like that.
Coming around to the rear we find fins on it! Looks rather like a fintail Mercedes donated it rear end to the cause. A Continental style spare completes the picture with what looks like Ford Granada hubcaps.
A shot of the interior for good measure.
