When you can find such a nicely presented 1930 Ford Model A coupe
at such an obtainable price, it is a special feeling. After all,
with every chug of the motor, this coupe connects you to a bygone
era, and that will make you smile with every mile.
The paint is exactly how you want a vintage car like this to look. The old idea with the Model T was that you could get it in any color you want as long as it was black. So that's why the Model As have such an iconic presence. You still get the Henry Ford steel body, but this one trades some simplicity for style. You see it in the two-tone tan and brown that are so nicely coordinated that they interweave the two colors thought the body (even on the inner window panels.) These intricate details are especially clear because the period-correct colors are rendered in a modern, more glossy paint. Plus, bright yellow wire wheels are a great standout to this package while still keeping with the earthtone theme.
The fully enclosed body is a true leap ahead of the Tin Lizzy, and the weatherproof construction allowed you to have a comfy cloth interior like this one. Everything feels authentic from the classic four-spoke steering wheel to the bright instrument panel. No one has tried to ruin this time machine with aftermarket parts like air conditioning. Instead, this thoroughly correct interior means raising the front windshield and rolling down the side windows to get your ventilation the way your family did a few generations ago. But if you need even more air, just let someone else drive, and you can enjoy the rumble seat.
Ford's 200 cubic inch four cylinder engine looks thoroughly original in the engine bay. This motor is all about torque, and the over-achieving little machine makes a distinctive sound that's been beloved for generations. It happily pulls this coupe around without working too hard, and should cruise at around 45 MPH, so it's not a problem on modern surface streets. The three-speed manual transmission shifts cleanly with a quick double-clutch, and the brakes are effective for a vehicle with modest performance and light weight.
Model A coupes with the iconic rumble seat are the perfect classic car for everything from the parade route, to the Sunday drive. So when it's also this affordable, you might want to hurry if you want to lead the procession instead of follow. Call now!!
