A rumble seat 1930 Ford Model A coupe always has appeal. So when you can find a well-priced example that loves to run, then you know it's worth a closer look.
The Model A was the Ford Motor Company's dive into style, and this was one of the best ways they showed it. It's a five-window coupe, and it has all the details you love, from the windshield overhang to the wire wheels. And the red pinstriping is nice touch against all that black. But there's also more to this one. The black .....
paint has a well-aged patina look to it. So while the price leaves room in the budget for a parade-quality respray, there's also just some fun with this one because there will be people who assume it's a nine-decades survivor (we won't tell the secret if you won't!) Everything looks like it's the way Henry Ford built it, from the headlights to the dual bumpers. So this is true vintage appeal.
Open the door and you'll see the seats, door panels, and headliner have been refreshed with a great looking and durable mohair-style cloth. So it continues the look of authenticity, but now in a far fresher package. Everything feels accurate from the classic four-spoke steering wheel to the bright instrument panel. There are even proper pockets in the doors. The rear window rolls down not only to give you a cross-breeze with the push-out windshield, but also to talk to your friends in the rear. The rumble seat is made of a durable vinyl, so it's what you want for outdoor use. No matter if you're looking to use this coupe in a parade route or impress some friends, the it's a functional piece that always get people talking.
The motor has the tidy look of respect, and it has even been given a recent tune-up to keep it in top order. The classic 201 cubic-inch engine is the backbone of the Ford Motor Company, so when it's a runner like this, you feel instantly connected with history with every chug of the exhaust. The torquey engine is great for parade routes and can keep up with traffic around town. The three-speed manual transmission shifts cleanly with its classic action. So almost 90 years later, and this Ford is still a fun runabout.
This is the right Model A for those people who love driving their history. If that's you, it's time to hurry up and call today!
