For Sale: 1931 Ford Model A in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1931 Ford Model A Roadster (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1931 Ford Model A Roadster on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 190 photographs, please go to our main website: GKM.com) I will build a car for the great multitude. �€" Henry Ford Offered here is a 1931 Model A Roadster in triple black-black paint, black fabric top and black interior. The car's beautifully restored condition, extensive current maintenance history, and tasteful, period-sensitive upgrades make this a standout Model A. Showing 73,570 miles, the Ford has traveled fewer than 850 miles per-year on average since new. The black exterior paint shows excellent gloss and even application across all surfaces. There are no dings, dents, or damage on any of the body panels; even the running boards with blue Ford-script step-plate are in excellent condition. Red pinstriping and red-painted wire wheels add just the right touch of flair and personality. Chrome trim is in very well-maintained condition; the classic grille (topped with flying quail radiator ornament), eyebrow headlights, front and rear 2-bar bumpers, auxiliary amber driving lights, twin cowl lights, spare-tire-mounted side mirrors, windshield surround, door handles rumble-seat trim, taillight trim, and drop-down rear, wood-trimmed luggage rack all shine brightly with virtually no patina. The black fabric convertible top is properly fitted and free of rips, tears, or significant wear indications. The red-painted wire wheels (with Ford-script-logo-embossed chrome hubcaps) are mounted with period-correct BFGoodrich Silvertown wide-whitewall tires. Inside, the black, vertically pleated upholstery covers the front bench seat and the rumble seat in back. Door panels are upholstered flat panels. Floors feature rubber matting. The original 4-spoke black steering wheel fronts a body-color-painted dashboard with chrome center-mounted instrument panel featuring correct gauges-fuel level, amperage, speedometer, and odometer-and switchgear. The gearshift lever for the 3-speed manual transmission and the handbrake lever are floor-mounted. Under the center-hinged, lift-up, louvered hood panels, the 201-cubic-inch Ford 4-cylinder wears its proper-color engine-block paint. All components-including the Auto-Lite manifold-mounted heater-are properly installed; the engine bay is clean with obvious recent maintenance. Viewed from below, the chassis is straight, very clean, and free of damage. All components are properly in place. The car's original identification stamping remains legible. The sale includes the referenced recent-maintenance documentation, the prior owner's detailed start-up and shut-down procedures, and a copy of a vintage Ford Model A Instruction Book. While the more than 190 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '31 Model A Roadster in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions. This black Model A Roadster is an automotive magician: it will turn even a short drive into a mini-parade, and any longer excursion into a lifetime memory. Want to see the grandkids giddy with joy? Load 'em into the rumble seat and start the adventure!
