BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED W/ SOME SMART UPGRADES, STARTS EASILY & RUNS GREAT, NICE!
We're big fans of the Model A Ford, and if you're looking for one to use for touring this summer, you won't find many better suited than this 1930 coupe. With a host of smart upgrades that do nothing to dilute its personality, it's a fine compromise between drivability and authenticity.
Beautiful two-tone green with a Straw pinstripe and matching wheels was a very popular combination in 1930 and still looks awesome today. The coupe body style is a stylish yet practical choice, with all-weather comfort and fabulous good looks that look particularly sporty in two-tone colors, which were designed to make the affordable Model A look far more upscale. Finish quality is above average in every way, with great glossy paint over very clean bodywork that takes no liberties with the original design. Deluxe coupes like also included details like cowl lights, bright stainless steel bumpers, and dual taillights, which improve safety out on the road. This one is also loaded with accessories, including a bright grille guard up front, dual sidemounts that make this car look like it should cost thousands more than it does, and a trunk out back that's a great addition for touring, which is really what this coupe was built to do.
The lovely restored interior suggests a car that should have cost more than $600 in 1930. Luxurious mohair upholstery was unique to the closed cars (open cars got leatherette), and the woodgrained dash makes it feel substantial inside. Matching door panels with map pockets, beautifully detailed door handles and window cranks, and the unique Model A instrument panel will be familiar, but they're all restored to a very high standard. Controls are simple and easy to master, with a layout that's still in use today, and with this car's factory 3-speed manual and an aftermarket overdrive unit, shifting is a pleasure. There's virtually zero wear on the interior, including the carpets where were also unique to closed cars, and the headliner is lovely. A rumble seat out back offers passenger space for two friends and has been finished in correct pleated black leatherette.
Mechanically, the Model A is as simple as they come, which is a big part of its appeal. The rugged little 200 cubic inch 4-cylinder engine is torquey and robust, and thanks to the aforementioned overdrive, it'll cruise at 60 MPH without complaint. Other upgrades include an electronic ignition, 12-volt electrical system with alternator, and a 4-blade cooling fan. The engine isn't detailed for show but with the way it runs, you can tell that the stuff that matters got a lot of attention. The chassis was restored with the rest of the car some years ago, and while it shows signs of use, there are zero issues with rust or rot and it's extremely clean, suggesting great maintenance throughout its life. The exhaust has that traditional Model A sound with a conical muffler, and the brakes are effective given the car's modest performance envelope. The 19-inch welded spoke wheels are quite correct and carry a set of bright 4.75/5.00-19 wide whitewall tires.
A fun, reliable, smartly-upgraded Model A that's ready to drive and enjoy immediately. The price is right, so why not find out why Model As are a perennial favorite for hobbyists of all ages. Call today!
