Not all Ford Model A roadsters were created equal. Yes, each
original one is a rare sight because it was not turned into a hot
rod, but there were extraordinary Deluxe models that had a regal
appearance. And with the excellent color combination on this 1931
Ford Model A Rumble Seat Roadster, it's hard to find a better way
to experience vintage motoring.
The Model A was the Ford Motor Company's dive into style, and the
40-B Deluxe roadster like this one was one of the best ways they
showed it. This starts with the two-tone red and black paint that
looks great while still appearing period-correct. Even white these
bold colors, the whitewall tires and yellow wheels are nice
standouts. That's a good thing, because part of what makes it a
Deluxe model are the spares mounted in each fender. The rear
folding luggage rack is made of wood with a chrome surround. And if
you like that brightwork, the Deluxe model not only came with the
classic bumpers and grille, but also the Deluxe's sports-style
windshield has great-looking chrome plating. And you'll really love
all the details on this example, such as the crisp tan folding top
with artful wood bracing, etched side wind deflector glass, and
step plates for both the front and iconic rumble seat.
The interior give you that classic Model A feeling with the large
four-spoke steering wheel, cushy but durable seating, and the
gauges all centrally housed in a bright panel. There are even some
nice details, like how the exterior's two-tone returns on the dash.
This is the ideal sunny day friend, and if you have more than one
companion on your ambling road trips, the rumble seat is even
upholstered to match the front seats.
Under the hood is a well-maintained package that still has the
classic look you love. It's a period correct 201 cubic-inch
four-cylinder motor. You can spot the right vintage pieces like the
green block and downdraft carburetor. But there are also nicely
integrated upgrades like the 12-volt electrical system and an
alternator to make it easier for carefree motoring. When you're
driving with the top down on a country road, this strong-running
Ford makes an industrial symphony of simplicity. The three-speed
manual transmission shifts cleanly with a solid mechanical feel
that makes you love pre-war motoring. So, in total, this classic
Ford is still a fun runabout.
There's less than 2,900 miles on this Ford since completing its
restoration. So you get a sharp-looking Model A with the desirable
rumble seat. That's the kind of irresistible icon you need to get
your hands on right now. Call today!!!
