For Sale: 1931 Ford Model A in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

History About Ford's Model A400 Example:
As the original Ford Model A production was nearing completion, Ford announced a special Convertible Sedan model in the Deluxe line on May 22nd, 1931. The newly announced model would be called the A400 and showcased a very unique set of attributes to appeal to the customers wanting an attractive upscale sedan that combines the open top convertible with closed car comforts! This included full framed doors and rear quarter windows with glass that could be rolled up and down, and a convertible top that lowered quickly and folded flat at the rear. This structure provided a far more rigid body that helps eliminate typical squeaks and rattles of the Deluxe Roadster.

Each A400 would utilize Deluxe cowl lamps, left side spare wheel well, genuine leather seat upholstery, simulated walnut wood graining on the dash, garnish molding, & finish strips; fully carpeted interior, receive an adjustable driver seat, rear seat arm rests with depression in the floor for extra leg room, and chrome exterior windshield frame and wiper. Ford's new Model A400 were quite special, wonderfully attractive, and built in very limited quantities! In fact, only 4,864 units were built for the domestic USA market thru December 1931 when production stopped, with another 229 sold for export use. Finding an example of this caliper today in the classic car market is extremely difficult!
