1930 Ford Model A Coupe Superb Condition on an Older RestorationLast year of production for this the Model A. 201 CID (3.3 L) L-head-4 I4 with a manual 3-speed sliding gear box. Was purchased in 2011 and resided in Skagway, AK. Fully restored and rebuilt engine sometime in the late 80's or early 90's. Only 300 mile put on it since. Current owner only drove it only 5 of those miles since purchase.The engine is clean and starts right up and drives with ease. The paint has some slight wear you would find being painted over 30 years ago. Few minor chips around the wheel wells, trunk and engine covers. It looks as though there has been some touch up work done over the years. The interior is in great condition and looks as though it has just been redone.This would be a great road worthy driver.Superb condition for an older restoration.
