Paul Sr & Jesse James, 1930 Ford Hotrod Coupe

Despite I'm Not A Real Fan Of The (Orange County Choppers) Teutels... Because It's "White Week" And Me Being A Real Hotrod Entousiast, I Couldn't Not Resist Sharing This Gorgeous Coupe Overhere. The 5-Window Coupe Show'n Above is Paul Teutul Sr. Stunning 1930 Ford Model A. It's Built By Jesse James & Bob Merkt At Austin Speed Shop.

Jesse James

Bob Merkt (AKA Bob Bleed)

The Built Was Covered In Outlaw Garage Episode / Discovery Channel.
Their Goal Was a 1950’s East-Coast Style Hot Rod And I have To Say... Jesse & His Crew Nailed It! The Original 1930 Ford chassis with stamped VIN A2764008 Was Disassembled, Squared Up & Fitted with New Cross-Members to Dial in the Stance.

They Used a Dropped & Drilled I-Beam with Custom Hairpins Up Front and a Buggy Spring with a Modified Pete & Jakes Ladder Bar Assembly for the 1957 Ford Rear-End.

The Coupe Body, Found By Bob Merkt in Iowa,
got Channeled and Chopped 2".

They Went for a Cool 1953 Chrysler 331ci Hemi Motor, Weiand Three-Deuce Intake, Flowing Zoomie Headers and 3 Black & Chrome 97 Stromberg Carburetors on Top.
A 727 Torqueflite Automatic Transmission,  Lincoln Self-Energizing Drum Brakes and 1940 Ford Steelies. 1954 Ford dash, a Set of Gauges Behind the Glove Box Door, Where You Will Also Find the Ignition & Light Switch.

The Only Thing That I Don't Really Like on This Coupe is The Twin Flat-Bar Insert for the Grille, But Hey... Who Am I 😉.
On The Other Hand... The Four Vintage Snowmobile Lamps on Handmade Stands, The One-Off Nerf Bar that Circles the Buick Taillights, I Really Dig!

This Aamazing Hot Rod was Offered For Sale A While Ago By Red Hills Rods & Classics. I Don't Know Who Eventually Wind Up Getting It? But It Sure Is One Lucky Guy (or Gall 😉)

A Detailed Built is Featured in ‘Traditional Rod & Kulture’ Magazine Issue #33. But I'm Sure... That If You Search The Web Some More, You Will Find A Lot About This Incredible Coupe Also...

Note: If You Never Did. Be Sure to Visit Austin Speedshop's Webiste.
You Won't Be Dissapointed!
