Adorable original 1931 Model A Coupe with Rumble Seat. Car is in great condition, body has no dents, no missing parts, and it runs good. It only needs minor work on radiator and fuel line and a little TLC. Vehicle interior is black vinyl (not original) and the vehicle comes with a veritable “ton” of various Model A parts: including wheels, tires, hood, metal grill frame, several engines, alternators, you name it! This is a really great car for a collector, and the tremendous amount of included parts and accessories would be a Model A restorer’s dream! You have to see it to understand.
