1927 Ford Model T Description

1927 Ford, Model Roadster– T, Hot Rod Convertible, REAL STEEL Body and Frame. Ford 9 Inch Rear End w/”Coil Over” Shocks.

Never raced, never made to burn tires, and never mistreated in any way.

1553 miles since re-build. Always garage kept. It has a brand new ZZ-4, 350 engine and TH-350 Chevy Transmission (has small leak like most all TH-350s). It shifts perfect every time and never falters. Locking tilt steering wheel w/Power Steering is way cool! Both passenger and driver-side seat belts helps to keep you in place.

High Performance ZZ-4 Engine Information Purchased new 4/23/13:

The Chevrolet Performance 350 ZZ4 HO Short Block comes with a four-bolt main block, forged steel crankshaft, forged powdered metal connecting rods and light flat top hypereutectic pistons. This partial engine assembly ensures high-RPM performance with a solid foundation for this project!


*Iron Block

*Forged 1053 Steel Crank

*4-Bolt Main Caps

*Hypereutectic Flat Top Pistons

*I-Beam Connecting Rods

*1-Piece Rear Main Seal

*Brass Freeze Plugs

Comment: I have heard that this motor should be creating about 400hp. It has not been dyno’ed nor do I recommend it. It will, however snap your head back if you are the least bit aggressive on the throttle. In other words, “hold on”!

Trick Flow Heads P/N: TFS-3030001: w/ ARP Head Bolts

These Trick Flow 23, 175 heads are high performance and meant to allow the engine to breathe properly throughout the RPM power range. They feature angled spark plugs, 56cc polished combustion chambers, 1.94 in. intake and 1.50 in. exhaust stainless steel valves, hardened ductile iron valve seats, and high-flow 175cc “Fast AS Cast” intake runners with a small cross-section. These Trick Flow Super 23, 175 heads came fully assembled with stainless valves, valve springs, locks, retainers, ARP rocker arm studs and guide plates. I carefully polished up the intake and exhaust ports, as well as the combustion chamber and installed them with ARP head bolts. These heads absolutely do the job!

More Details:

Bringing power to the road is a shortened 9" Ford rear end. To keep the sun off while cruising during the day is a removable (about 10 minutes), White Vinyl Top. VDO Gauges provide constant engine information and AutoMeter Electronic Speedometer and Tach Combination provides speed and RPM information. The “moon” tank is just for show but brings on many questions from lookers.


The car is being sold as is. Call me anytime to see the car or ask questions. My number is 512-785-9024. The car is registered and insured. Recommend potential buyers inspect the car, touch it, and see it to appreciate. Please call Bob for any questions. Serious inquiries only. Tire kickers need not apply.

The winning bidder must provide within 48 hours $500.00 nonrefundable deposit. Seller will help at this end with any loading of the car or you may wish to drive it home. It loves the road. But if you are real tall, you will not love the ceiling/leg height. The accelerator has, in fact, been re-positioned further to the right from the original 1927 location which makes it a bit more comfortable to drive on those long cruises you may want to take. But remember, this is a 1927 vehicle with original fire wall and floor board. Folks were mostly shorter back in the day. Title is free and clear with no issues. You should see this Hot Rod to appreciate.
