Classic Car Overview

We continue to believe that the Model A Ford is the best possible introduction to the old car hobby. Fun, handsome, reliable, and with massive parts and knowledge support, this 1931 Ford Model A Coupe delivers an authentic old car experience with a classic look that makes the Model A a perennial favorite. Mostly original but repainted a few years ago, this neat coupe still looks sharp even though its been a favorite tour car for many years. Despite being a low-cost car, Ford offered a dizzying array of colors for the Model A, and this one has been refinished in traditional tan with a brown pinstripe and matching wheels, which was probably Henry Fords personal favorite. Finish quality is decent despite the age, and while Model As are simple machines, getting them to fit together this well can be a challenge, so someone did their homework here. The paint has an appropriate shine but not a modern one, so it looks quite authentic and the pinstripes highlight the belt moldings, an echo of big brother Lincolns upscale look. Fords use of stainless steel was extensive, so it all got polished up and the bumpers give the car a bit of jewelry to go with its no-nonsense look. The rear-mounted spare has also been fitted with a tan vinyl cover that really dresses it up. The interior gets cloth mohair upholstery, while the rumble seat is fitted with correct brown leatherette, a nice authentic detail the restorer chose not to ignore. The mohair seat was reupholstered at some point in the not-too-distant past and has held up very well, showing off the likelihood that this has only been a parade/Sunday jaunt antique for quite some time. The instrument panel features a round speedometer, which was introduced in late 1930, and but the rest of the controls should be familiar, including the ammeter and fuel gauge. Once you get it started, youll find its easy to master driving a Model A with no special knowledge required, and control action is light, including steering and brakes. The rumble seat was properly restored at some point recently as well, offering comfortable, if somewhat cozy, accommodations for two on brown leatherette upholstery thats simple and easy to maintain. The tough little 200 cubic inch inline-four out-performs its spec sheet, and youve never had 40 horsepower feel so energetic. Most of that is due to the engines stout torque curve, which pulls the little coupe around with enthusiasm. The engine runs superbly, as most Model As do, and hasnt been upgraded with questionable mods that are never really necessary anyway. Its still got an updraft carb and even the flat strips of copper that serve as ignition wires, although it has been upgraded to a 6v alternator for added reliability. This is an engine bay that shows lots of evidence of proper maintenance, and it has all the little stuff right, from the paint on the block to the hose clamps and fabric hoses. A 3-speed manual transmission was your only choice in a Model A (brush up on your double-clutching!) as were mechanical brakes, which are effective when maintained properly. 19-inch wire wheels are correct and wear right-sized 4.75/5.00-19 black-wall tires, which flow perfectly with the blue-collar Model A. These are simply wonderful cars to own and drive, and if you havent experienced the joy that is a Model A, this coupe is an excellent place to start. Call today!
