This 1930 Ford Model A 5-Window Coupe turns back the clock and
looks good doing it. After all, you get a sophisticated full color
combo to go with a very authentic feeling rumble seat machine.
This coupe has an interesting color combo. It's more than just how
the black fenders and rich brown body appear very 1930s-correct.
The full package looks like four parts of a color spectrum. Start
at black, it gets a little lighter at brown, the full tan pinstripe
is a little lighter than that, and it eventually to progresses to
the bright white wire wheels. So while palette might not be the
first thing that comes to mind, it does explain how the whole
package is so instantly pleasing to the eye. The other reason why
this Ford is so attractive right from the first impression is
because of all the details. The dual bumpers, fender-mounted horn,
windshield overhang, vinyl roof cover, rear mounted spare tire, and
step plates for the rumble seat - it's all part of a very correct
and authentic presentation. So this one really knows how to turn
back the clock to give you a handsome and jaunty coupe.
Inside is the classic and simple Model A layout. You get the large
four-spoke steering wheel, floor shifter, and the flat dash with
the bright housing for the ignition, amps, and odometer. There was
also the addition of an engine temp gauge, which is quite handy.
The atmosphere feels quite authentic, right down to the working
accessories. This includes the horn, wipers, windows, and turn
signals. The seat has a plush pattern and the classic broadcloth
feel. And the side and rear panels are done to match. Of course,
the most important seat is really outside. The rumble seat in the
back looks quite good with a more recent re-cover in a durable
vinyl. It's the kind of feature everyone loves to see, and it will
likely get you invited to a few parades.
Ford's 201 cubic-inch motor looks quite authentic under the hood
with the clean green block, spark plugs boldly on top, large fan,
and correct carb. The only time you really see more modern pieces
are just the right maintenance items that keep this a
strong-running classic even as this enters its last decade before
hitting the century-old mark. With a good idle, effective brakes,
and crisp shifts of the three-speed transmission, this one has a
feeling of quality you want in a driver's car.
We all love a good rumble seat coupe, and this one really feels
like it gets the classic formula right. So don't let something this
special slip away. Call today!!!
