614 E. Auto Center Dr.
This 1931 Ford Model A Rumble Seat Coupe was made for true classic car motoring. After all, you don't just have the iconic rumble seat, but this is a restored example that offers a comfy interior, strong motor, and some nice extras.
The Model A coupe is one of those icons of the dawn of American motoring. It's predecessor, the Model T, put us on wheels, but the Model A represents added style and features that come to symbolize what we love about cars. It starts with the two-tone presentation. The gray paint has a proper 1930s look, and glossy black on the bottom highlights those curvy fenders. It's all done in a thoughtful arrangement that reminds you there have been some solid investments in this car (the consignor was told this was subject to a frame-off restoration.) Plus, there's beige accenting that follows the body lines, and the yellow pinstripe matches the yellow wire wheels for a well-integrated four-color setup. There are plenty of terrific vintage details, like the step plates on the running boards, whitewall tires, vinyl roof, and a platform to mount a trunk on the rear. There are also even details that tell you this was made for motoring, like the bright rock guard over the radiator.
The interior provides the right vintage atmosphere with the button-top tweed seat and coordinating material on the side panels. You get the classic gauge package, long shifter, and big/grippy four-spoke steering wheel. There are more nice vintage details, like how the exterior color theme is continued on the dash. Plus, the upgrade to turn signals is another reminder that this one is made for driving. And of course, we can't forget about the rumble seat. The fold-up rear seat is covered in a durable vinyl for proper outdoor use. It makes for a cool sight no matter if you're showing it off at a car show or using it in a parade route.
Under the hood is a clean and honest representation of Ford's 201 cubic-inch motor. It has the right look of original style that also has been kept up over the years to make sure this one is still ready to drive. And the addition of the alternator is quite handy. So since we talk about how this one is for drivers, it should be no surprise that the motor feels as hard as Henry Ford wanted it to be. The three-speed manual transmission has confident shifts, and it feels poised on the road.
The sale comes complete with an original Model A instruction book, Model A mechanic's book, and an original black plate from 1931. This is the iconic rumble seat coupe that wants to go for every Sunday drive. Don't miss this vintage Ford, call today!
