1930 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan For consignment an older restoration, but since thi, there has been extensive maintenance performed to the tune of $21,500 spent in mechanical work, performed by Keith Story along with documentation of this work. With only about 300 miles logged since the work was completed, which was performed between 2009 and 2012 you can rest assured this Tudor is up to snuff on the mechanicals. So here we are in 2023 Peabody, set the Wayback machine for 1930 and lets breathe in this kept in original condition Ford. Exterior This writers award goes to this car for the best color combination on a Model A. All straight rust-free panels, minding their gaps very well, are bathed in medium blue which is nicely applied but shows some faults in the form of lacquer cracks, chips, touch ups and a few small dings. On the beltline of the doors is a body bump out with a hint of black applied on all the cars uppers for some nice contrast. This black continues up and over the roof where it meets the beautiful near perfect textured vinyl top covering the roof and this presents to us in black as well. Wonderfully designed fenders, in black, frame 19-inch straw painted wire spoked wheels, wrapped in like new blackwalls to the tune of 4.75/5.00x19s. All chrome on this car is just pristine and mirror-like. From the radiator surround to the dual bar bumpers, door handles, rear view mirror and taillight bezels its all there and squared away. A canvas wrapped spare hangs from the rear of this car, and if you look at the beautiful line from any angle, youll agree this car is 100 percent cool ragtime design. The Sting! Interior Pulling open the doors we see pristine wool door panels in tan, handles and cranks are just perfect and have the neatest 30s style escutcheons. Moving inside are plaid covered overstuffed buckets with low backs and in back, a snazzy overstuffed tuck and roll plaid covered bench/couch for ultimate passenger comfort, and in tune of the roaring 20s with flapper excess. Upfront is a curved blue painted dash in an eyebrow design with a curved brown painted steel topper. Keeping it simple is the theme with a central surface rusted chromed mask style instrument cluster surround. A black bakelite big steering wheel with spark advance and throttle levers fronts the dash, and above is a nice tight tan fuzzy mohair cloth headliner. Shucks! Thats just all dandy. Drivetrain Opening the cowled vented hood, we see a restored and well maintained inline 4 cylinder engine. This presents with a bit of surface rust peppering the olive green paint, a warning that it is a 6-volt positive ground,before you begin to fool around! 201 cubes will cover it, and it has a single barrel carburetor to feed it. A 3-speed manual transmission is on the back of this stout 4 popper to send power to the 3.78 geared rear axle. Just dandy under here, which is yet another winning highlight to this beautiful example. And with all that recent aforementioned mechanical work, it runs like a clock. Yowza! Undercarriage Like new with all clean black metal floor pans, frame, and structural elements to hold the body on tightly. Transverse leaf springs are on all 4 corners, as are mechanical drum brakes, all clean and green. (Well actually black!) Drive-Ability To drive one, is to know how to start one, and it was off to the races with this excellent example. It started right up, idled smoothly, and ran like a champ with nice acceleration, simple easy steering, and solid braking. You will not break any world speed records, but it will definitely get you where you want to go. All in working clean condition on the driving side save for a horn that wouldnt oogah. The beginning of the 1930s roared into the halls of Classic Auto Mall, all in Art Deco style. A beautiful color combination and turnkey drive away condition. Very well done, and in its 93rd year. Plenty of TLC, and caring hands have kept this car as Henry made it and needs to be seen to be really appreciated. So, view the photos carefully, and if you can make it in, it will be worth your while. If not, it speaks for itself, (with my help!). I guess it could be a speakeasy?
