Lot #1047 - Henry Ford loved the Model A so much he called it his "Lady". We appropriately named this car "Henry's Lady". She was resurrected from a farm field by a father and son team and the body is still original Henry Ford steel. We added a steel roof with a 2" chop and molded-in sunvisor. The fenders and running boards are custom made and meticulously crafted to fit the body. The rear fenders are widened to accommodate the 20" tires, and along with the 18" fronts, are all mounted on Foose aluminum wheels. The hood is custom made with inside releases and can be removed in seconds. Under the hood is a 350/330hp crate motor that is absolutely stunning with its painted block, chrome and polished aluminum, all connected to a 700R transmission. The rear end is a custom made Currie 9" with 3.50 posi-traction and triangulated four-link with coilovers. The underside of Henry's Lady is as polished as the top side. The front suspension is chrome with a 4" drop I-beam. Stopping power is provided by Wilwood disc brakes. The PPG paint is as deep and rich as we have seen, the silver flakes under the orange dance in the sunlight. Notice how the flames change from orange on the hood to black on the sides and don't forget the airbrushed protrait of Henry's Lady. After a nationwide search, this car had the honor of being one of only 12 cars featured on the 2011 PPG paint calendar. When you step into the interior, you are truly stepping into a work of art with its two tone, hand crafted panels and headliner. From its one-of-a-kind dash and gauges with all of today's conveniences such as tilt, cruise, air, remote entry, power windows and locks Henry's Lady is absolutely stunning.
