Here’s more from the seller, Specialty Sales Classics:

“If you’re unfamiliar with the Fordillac title, it’s the combination of Ford’s dependable Model A chassis and Cadillac’s much more powerful engine with its overhead valve V-8 engines. Bill Frick Motors of Rockville Centre, New York was the first to coin the term due to his skill at engine swapping. He would literally purchase a brand new Ford, drive it back to his shop and then rip the entire motor out. Rumors still circulate that he had a large stack of essentially brand new Ford Flathead engines behind his shop for decades.’

This particular 1931 Ford Model A “Fordillac” was built with a Pete & Jakes Model A chassis and a 9” Ford rear end, Rochester 2-barrel triple carburetors, a wicked custom dual exhaust and nearly endless customizations for amazing ride quality. It was inspired largely by the Bonneville hotrods that became so popular back in the day, yet this beauty also takes advantage of many of today’s technologies as well. It is an amazing automobile.”
