1931 Ford Model A Sport Coupe
.For consignment, a 1931 Model A Sport Coupe AKA a sports car from
1931. 2 door with 2 inboard seats and a rumble seat in back
outside. Colorful yellow(cream) with black fender accenting and
some orange wire wheels on the corners along with the rag style
canvas top complete with landau bars on the B pillars, we give you
a compact, look of a convertible, sporty example from the early
1930's which was wildly popular.
Cream (light yellow) panels in very good condition, with well
minded gaps make up this all steel car. A slight scuffing is noted
in the paint on the rumble seat exterior panel. Black covers the
running boards and fenders Chrome is nearly perfect and covers the
radiator surround, front "grille" and headlight casings. A
motometer radiator cap is atop the shiny surrounds and frames the
cowled hood in tan directly behind it. A small door on either side
allows access to this 30's style 2 seat sports car, if you will. A
mother in law seat is on the curved rear which also sports a spare
tire and wheel completely restored like the other 4 corners in
orange colored wire wheels. A canvas hardtop top in beige and
nearly showroom is on top to protect the cabin passengers. A 6-volt
system with quartz head lighting can be driven easily at night.
A brown and cream tweed pattern broadcloth bench stretches from
similar pattern tweed door panel to door panel. Nearly new looking
it will accommodate 3 if needed but it will be tight. A super
simple dash with chromed "mask style" instrument cluster, shows no
rust, and is functional. The dash top is all steel and black, and
the dash front is the exterior matching cream. An original steering
wheel with spark advance lever and throttle/idle lever attached to
the column is fronting the cream painted metal dash. The rumble
seat, utilizing brown tuck and roll vinyl is protecting itself from
the elements and is accessible with a turn and pull of the winged
chromed lever. The rear window of this car can be lowered to have a
conversation with the rumble seat passengers.
A flat 201ci 4-cylinder engine all gussied up and fully operational
sits in the engine bay, and is backed by a 3-speed manual
transmission, and fed by a 1-barrel carburetor. The tail end of the
driveline shows up a rear axle with 3.78 gearing. All is looking
very nice and has a clean original configuration under this
Structural integrity, and a good frame rust free is noted
underneath. Floorpans, and rockers, and running board supports are
sturdy. All is looking good including the transverse leaf springs
on all 4 corners and the mechanical drums, which do stop but you'll
need to plan ahead!
Drives like its new and has surprising acceleration and smooth
steering and suspension. All functions are working as they should,
and it was a pleasant nostalgic drive.
With its short wheelbase, rag styled hardtop, 2 seats with rumble
seat, and snappy exterior panels in cream, I have dreams of rolling
down the back road kicking up dirt, hooting and hollering having a
great time in the open air, laughing with the rumble seat
passengers. Why not get in on this?
