A 1928 Ford Model A rumble seat coupe always has appeal. So when you can find an example done by an experienced restorer, then you have an accurate car that also loves to run.
This coupe is quite striking and correct. That's because the consignor and his grandfather enjoyed restoring these pre-war Fords. So you're looking at one that came from a knowledgeable source who built it out of a labor of love. That's why this is a detail-oriented build. It starts with the way the two-tone is intertwined. It has an impressive look as the glossy black of the fenders also swoop up the lines of the body and highlight the style line of the doors. There's even a cream-colored pinstripe to draw added attention. And the black vinyl roof and windshield sunshade seem to be the final pieces that sandwiches the green on this five-window coupe. The bright grille, wire wheels, dual bumpers, and rear-mounted spare are all part of this well-done build.
Open the door to a nicely detailed and very vintage package. For example, the seats are done in a comfy but period correct mohair cloth. The door panels are finished to match. They also have extras like built-in pockets and the tops coordinate with the piping on the seat. Everything feels accurate from the classic four-spoke steering wheel to the bright instrument panel. No matter if you're looking to use this coupe in a parade route or impress some friends, the rumble seat is a functional piece that always get people talking. Access to it is easy with proper foot pegs on the rear, and it's finished in a durable leather for easy outdoor use.
The classic 201 cubic-inch engine is the backbone of the Ford Motor Company, and while they are a hardy powerhouse, it also helps to have someone knowledgeable restoring it. That's how you get worthwhile upgrades like the alternator. The engine fires up readily like it's eager to hit the road. When a Model A is a runner like this, you feel instantly connected with history with every chug of the exhaust. The torquey engine is great for parade routes and can keep up with traffic around town. The three-speed manual transmission shifts cleanly with its classic action. So over 90 years later, and this Ford is still a fun runabout.
This is a clean and correct Model A with the right extras you want on a true motoring classic. Rarely do you get to take home the results of a passion project, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
