1930 Ford Model A Rumble Seat Coupe
Great Survivor condition driver. The current owner had her for over 14 years and in that time he has driven her a bit locally to shows, cruise nights and was even his wedding car when he got married.
It is believed to have been repainted at some point in it's life as upon close inspection, you can see areas of green paint hiding underneath the black. The original color is unknown. The car is believed to have the original engine. The owner before the current owner had her for over 26 years and was told the engine is original.
The car is very solid, no rot. She starts, runs and drives well... The paint has some chips here and there and there is an errant small ding or two as well. From what the previous two owners know, it has not been restored. She looks like a survivor. When brought out to shows, she always gets the looks, as so many people love the idea of that car that has simply been cared for throughout it's entire life and just runs and drives well because of it. There are 17,882 miles on the odometer and that is felt to be correct, despite the car being over 80 years old... These cars generally didn't get driven long distances. The previous owners stated that he believes the car has been a CT car its entire life. Everything on her works as it should, gauges, lights (although the after-market period fog lights are not hooked up) even the wipers.
The current owner has done a bit of work to her too.
The brakes and suspension were gone through by Antique Auto Service in Essex CT and given a gold star, all correct and working correctly.
He's planed the head, installed new plugs and points; rebuilt the carb and has a second carb that goes with it; a "leakless" water pump has been installed; the previous owner had the seats reupholstered in vinyl instead of the standard mohair; SS chrome grill guard; MotoMeter radiator cap; extra tail-light; new Firestone tires; synthetic fluids in rear diff, transmission and engine; also included with the car is an extra rear bumper, bin of misc small parts, intake and exhaust manifold, horn, upgraded "C" shaped air filter and an Auto-Lite heat transfer box.
She's not a concours winner, just a great, solid driver to get out and enjoy. Her survivor condition makes her a great conversation starter.
Asking price is $9200 obo.
Any questions, to schedule a time to see her in person or to make an offer, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for the interest.
