Ford Model A Rumble Seat Coupe 201 CI 4 Cylinder 1930

Allmän beskrivning : Description
We've long believed that no old car collection is complete without a Model A Ford, and this 1930 Ford Model A Rumble Seat coupe is one of the more desirable body styles on the considerably long list of choices. Coming from conscientious ownership and restored beautifully with no questionable "upgrades," it's the ideal starter hobby car or a great addition to a growing collection in need of one of Henry's ladies.
The dark blue and black paint is an attractive combination for a 1930 Model A, and once you see it in person, you'll fall in love. Not flashy, although the light-blue wheels certainly turn heads, it's interesting and quite attractive and will definitely stand out from the rows of maroon and black examples. Finish work remains quite good, and since this car comes out of the South, rust and wood rot were probably never an issue. Given the massive resources out there for restoring a Model A, it's no surprise that this one fits together well with doors that fit snugly, a nicely aligned hood, and perhaps most interestingly, a rumble seat instead of a trunk, making this more than just a 2-seater if you have some brave passengers. It has not been over-accessorized, either, as many folks believe that simple Model As should remain simple, but it does have a few functional upgrades like the sealed-beam headlight inserts, a radiator guard, and a correct spare tire cover and luggage carrier out back. It's also worth noting that the bumpers shine up nicely and the vinyl roof is great shape, further proof of this Model A's long, easy-lived life.
For a Model A, the interior is nicely appointed, with a comfortable Mohair bench seat and fully upholstered door panels. The tan fabric looks right for the 1930s and has simple vertical pleats that were standard on all closed models. The dash is the same one all Fords got in 1930, although this appears to be an early 1930 model with the round speedometer and simple, flat-faced gauge panel. All the original hardware and controls are there, including the steering-wheel-mounted headlight controls right under the horn button, throttle and spark levers on the steering column, and fuel shut-off under the dash. With the gas tank right there in the cowl, ventilation comes from a tilt-out windshield, which really makes a nice difference on warm days, making the Model A a nice place to spend an afternoon. That kind of touring is all the more enjoyable come parade time with the rumble seat out back, which is finished in light-blue upholstery to match the wheels.
All Model As, even the trucks, got the same torquey 200 cubic inch four cylinder engine, with the one in this coupe being a great runner with that traditional Model A sound. All the correct equipment is there, from the flat copper plug leads to the right shade of Ford Green on the plug, but to enhance the ride experience this one has been upgraded to a 12V system and alternator, and it runs on regular unleaded pump gas without issue. The carburetor looks to be a later aftermarket replacement that's a little easier to fine-tune than the original Zenith and there's some fresh wiring to upgrade the original cloth stuff. The 3-speed manual transmission is light and easy to master with a quick double-clutch, and the hydraulic brakes are surprisingly effective given the A's light weight. You'll surely find that this coupe keeps up with traffic easily and cruises happily at 45 MPH on the open road thanks to newer whitewall tires on the original 19-inch blue wire wheels.
Don't miss an opportunity to own a nice-driving A with a lot of history behind it, a car that remains quite A-Ford-able. Call today!

om Ford
Ford, som grundades 1902, har utan tvekan förändrat historien om bilvärlden mer än någon annan biltillverkare genom att införa de första folkbilen Modell T 1908. De hade producerat mer än 15 miljoner bilar i slutet av produktionen 1927, genom vilket T hade blivit föråldrade.

Ford lanserade den första lågpris V8-motor driven bil 1932. 1932 V8 var en omedelbar hit med överlägsen hantering och prestanda för många betydligt mer expansiva bilar av dagen. Inte undra på 32 V8 Ford har blivit en sådan favorit bland heta rodders runt om i världen med 32 Deuce Coupe som sin ikon.

Under kriget Ford helt stänga civil bilproduktionen att ägna alla sina resurser till de allierade krigsansträngningarna (1942-1945) De används för att bygga B-24 bombplan, flygmotorer, jeepar, M-4 stridsvagnar, militära lastbilar och Bren-gun bärare och mer än 30.000 super laddade Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 motorer till Mosquito och Lancaster bombplan samt P-51 Mustang fighters. Efter kriget Ford bilar i USA blev större och flashier tillsammans med sina konkurrenter. I 60: s Ford var tillbaka i förgrunden igen när man inför deras kommersiella hit Mustang 1964. Mustang var så populär tävlingen var tvungen att följa Fords exempel och ponycar fenomenet tog över USA. Under åren ponnyer växte några muskler tills oljekrisen döda äntligen dödat dem.

På sextiotalet rusade Ford i internationell motorsport scenen med en raseri. Efter misslyckade Ferrari övertagande, då Enzo Ferrari hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede, vände Ford till Lola i Storbritannien för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som absolut slog Ferrari i Le Mans 24 flera gånger.

I Europa införde Ford några av de mest episka race och rallybilar av 60-talet som bygger på ödmjuka familj sedaner; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, och Escort 1600RS med de ikoniska Cosworth BDA motorer.
