Possibly the most recognized car of all time, the tin lizzy, also known as the Ford Model A was the car that really set Ford motors on a path to success. This particular example is a 1929 Coupe that features the always popular rumble seat. On the exterior, the body is coated in a coffee colored paint with accent stripes that looks simply amazing. It’s a very subtle color that allows the body lines to shine. The fenders are done in a contrasting black color, with a lighter tan wire wheel that matche the canvas top. Inside is a tan/coffee tweed interior with a center mounted floor shifter and sparse factory cluster beside the column. Simplistic but effective is the theme inside, and it works wonderfully. The cabin is very roomy and inviting. Of course the star feature is the rumble seat, or a hidden seat that resides where the trunk would be that faces forward in open air. On a nice day you can let the seat down and ride in style behind the cabin. This car is a dream come true for any Ford lover, and this dream can be your reality! Stop by today and have a look!
