We''re big fans of the Model A Ford, and if you''re looking for one to use for touring this summer, you won''t find many better suited than this 1930 coupe. With a host of smart upgrades that do nothing to dilute its personality, it''s a fine compromise between drivability and authenticity. Basic black with an Apple Green pinstripe and matching wheels was a very popular combination in 1930 and still looks awesome today. The coupe body style is a stylish yet practical choice, with all-weather comfort and fabulous good looks that look particularly sporty in black. Finish quality is above average in every way, with great glossy paint over very clean bodywork that takes no liberties with the original design. I''m especially pleased to see that this Model A keeps the basics such as a rear-mounted spare and blackwall tires, which is how a vast majority of these cars were originally delivered. Deluxe coupes also included details like cowl lights, bright stainless steel bumpers, and dual taillights, which improve safety out on the road. The lovely restored interior suggests a car that should have cost more than $600 in 1930. Luxurious mohair upholstery was unique to the closed cars (open cars got leatherette), and the woodgrained dash makes it feel substantial inside. Matching door panels with map pockets, beautifully detailed door handles and window cranks, and the unique Model A instrument panel will be familiar, but they''re all restored to a very high standard. Controls are simple and easy to master, with a layout that''s still in use today, and with this car''s modern 4-speed transmission with overdrive, shifting is a pleasure. With just over 1200 miles on the restoration, there''s virtually zero wear on the interior, including the carpets where were also unique to closed cars. A rumble seat out back offers passenger space for two friends and has been finished in correct pleated brown leatherette . Mechanically, the Model A is as simple as they come, which is a big part of its appeal. The rugged little 4-cylinder engine is torquey and robust, and thanks to the aforementioned transmission, it''ll cruise at 60 MPH without complaint. Other upgrades include an electronic ignition, six-volt alternator, and a 4-blade cooling fan. The engine is detailed in correct olive green paint with a Zenith updraft carburetor and flat copper spark plug leads. It would take an expert to spot the black alternator, but otherwise it looks quite factory-correct, right down to the fabric-wrapped radiator hoses. Underneath, the chassis has been fully restored and offers modern tube shocks to replace the original friction-type units, and the result is the best-riding Model A you''ll ever drive. The new exhaust has that traditional Model A sound with a conical muffler, and the brakes are effective given the car''s modest performance envelope. The only truly visible modification are the 16-inch wheels from a 1932 Ford, a common upgrade, and they''ve been painted to match the pinstripe and fitted with 6.00-16 blackwalls for just the right effect. A fun, reliable, smartly-upgraded Model A that''s ready to drive and enjoy immediately. Also included with the sale, are over $1,000 in extra Model A parts and tools that are typically needed when owning one of these cars. The price is right, so why not find out why Model As are a perennial favorite for hobbyists of all ages. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom.
