Ross Kidman’s ’28 Model “A” in modern terms may be referred to as a Rat Rod. But make no mistake about it-that ain’t no Rat motor between the frame rails. It’s a big 440 Chrysler mill with two-Holley four barrels mounted to an Offenhauser tunnel ram. Inside we found an old bicycle pedal used to activate the brakes. And the shift lever that operates the 727 Torqflite is an old wrench that measures about 2 feet long! When Ross isn’t driving his ’28, he works for a very large International Automotive company that develops and manufactures airbags, safety electronics, and anti-whiplash systems to make new cars safer. Not too sure he has a photo of his ’28 Ford hanging on his office wall.
