1930 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan
The Tudor sedan body style was one of the first Model A body
styles. In fact, the "mysterious new Ford" seen on the streets of
Detroit in the fall of 1927 was indeed the new Model A Tudor Sedan.
The most popular of all Model A body styles, the Standard Tudor was
available in all 4 Model A years, with well over 1.25 million of
them being built between 1927 and 1931.
1 in 1.25 million you could say for this consignment. You could
also say it also has some nice butterscotch and brown paint, good
chrome, and wire wheels. I say it's straight and true and was in a
collectors garage and not driven very often recently.
A butterscotch "Tudor" body and front cowl are all bathed in
butterscotch paint. This paint shows well with just some peel off
around the frame on top for the canvas panel on the roof. Brown
fenders undulate up and down and meet in the center for the running
boards. These boards have some metal rust out on their edges, and
the fenders have battle cases throughout. The older restoration
shows up more on the fenders than it does the body. Chrome is in
good condition surrounding the radiator, making the round casings
for the headlights and covering the 2 bar bumpers on front and
rear. A covered spare tire is mounted to the back of the body and
when you look at the car from the back the color box and shine of
the split bumpers is fab! Cream painted 19-inch wire spoked wheels
are wrapped in wide whites weighing in at 4.75/5.00-19 rubber.
A swing of each door and what to my surprise the ubiquitous trim
color is popular for 1972 avocado, rust and cream slate pattern
textured shag. Just delicious! This carpeting covers the floors,
and all the vertical panels. Within all this carpeting are 2 low
back tuck and roll saddle colored vinyl bomber style buckets. In
back is a full saddle covered bench stretching from carpeting to
carpeting. In front a swooping arched tan metal dash top has an
elongated oval black dash front. On this is the Ford "mask" style
instrument cluster showing plenty of patina and aging gracefully in
its warm finish. The headliner is just slightly lumpy, is in tan
velour and has wood ribbed separators, all above the passengers.
That carpeting is so retro I can't get over it! Shagalicious!
Under the hood in a mostly restored engine bay is a 4 cylinder in
201ci inline form. It has some surface rust on the head top and
appears unrestored. It does run though and has a 3-speed manual
transmission on back.
Light surface rust can be seen with some areas sprayed with a
rattle can in black. Some plywood is on the floor pans and is not
rotted, just grayed. Transverse leaf springs are on all 4 corners,
as are mechanical drum brakes.
Starts up and runs like a 1930 Model T should! I felt like I was in
the 1930's finished off in a 70's attire piece of history.
An older restoration and some even still original as it was in an
estate for a long time, most of the time not running. Nice
coloring, interesting interior, and original engine.
