800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1931 Ford Model A Rumble Seat Coupe is a two-tone true American wonder. After all, it has the timeless silhouette, attractive two-tone, and an awesome open back rear seat that is ready for when parades start back up.
The color coordination on this coupe really makes you love the era. The cream is the right 1930s color, and the brown lower section has the right gloss to really show off the fenders. This was an application later in life, so it has the look of quality, but nothing too fancy to make you hesitate to take this one on parade routes. Plus, there's great details, like the brown full-length pinstripe, and even the vinyl roof cover is done in a coordinating brown. The final touch is the cream returning on every one of those classic wire wheels, including the full-size spare. Bright double bumpers, an attractive mesh grille guard, windshield overhang are all part of the great period-correct look. You even have step plates for both the running boards and the rear fender for the rumble seat.
The interior continues this coupe's authentic-style presentation. There is style in this simplicity, with a correct velour-like seat, and the dash returns the exterior's two-tone. This Model A is all about being a faithful pre-war Ford: from the classic four-spoke steering wheel, to the bright instrument panel. In fact, this thoroughly correct interior means raising the front windshield and rolling down the side windows to get your ventilation the way families did a few generations ago. When it's more than just two people riding along, the iconic rumble seat makes for a great way to give an extra couple the feeling of open-top motoring convertible. Plus, it's upholstered in a durable vinyl so you don't have to worry about having it out in the elements.
When you get under the hood, Ford's 200 cubic-inch four-cylinder engine looks quite correct and authentic right down to the green paint on the block. It cranks, fires up, and runs with the kind of eagerness that tells you it has been cared for correctly. So this nearly 90-year-old classic is ready to still have some fun. The mechanical action of the three-speed manual transmission, solid axles, and skinny tires all instantly connect you to a bygone motoring era.
This is a two-tone rumble seat icon offered for quite a nice price. So if you want any day to feel like a Sunday drive, don't miss this Model A. Call now!
