Ford Model A “Twisted Mistress” Specifications

The real Model A

The Ford Model A was the second market success of the Ford Motor Company after its predecessor, the Model T. First produced on October 20, 1927, but not introduced until December 2, 1927, it replaced the venerable Model T. This new Model A was called the 1928 Model and was available in four standard colors.

By February 4, 1929, one million Model As had been sold, and by July 24, two million. The range of body styles stretched from the Tudor for $500 (in grey, green or black) to the city car with double panelling for $1,200. In March 1930, sales of Model A reached three million, and nine body variants were available.

Production of Model A ended in March 1932, after 4,858,644 units had been produced in all body variants.

The “Twisted Mistress” built by Weaver Customs is a modern model A. A twin turbo 401ci 8-cylinder Windsor engine, supported by a C6 automatic transmission with a 3,500 stall converter, which is based on a 9″ Ford rear end with 3.70 gears, motivates this hot rod. It has a custom built chassis and suspension. They left no plate untouched when building the rotisserie. They chopped, channeled, smoothed and scraped it. Flush recessed doors complement the body modifications on this custom hot rod. It runs on 18″ front and 20″ rear wheels of the Detroit Steel Artillery, fitted with Toyo Proxie tires. Italian leather from Hyde decorates the interior.
