Description:

1931 Ford Model A

1931 Ford Model A 180A Deluxe Phaeton Beautifully restored Model A Deluxe 2-Door Phaeton! One of only 2. 29 built! Mechanically outstanding and ready to cruise anywhere! Model A collectors should not miss out! The Model A proved to be a top national seller for Ford from the very introduction in 1927. As the years went by. it would be 1931 to mark the end of the namesake and make way for a new model in 1932. At final tally. over 4. 3 million Model As hit the streets in the United States alone! Offered in over 28 body styles to choose from. not counting commercial vehicles. it was easy to find exactly what every buyer was looking for! One of the most rare offerings was the Deluxe 2-door Phaeton. available in 1930 & 1931. as style number 180A. Only 6. 75 were ever produced. with just 2. 29 units built in that final year offering. We are very excited to offer this 1931 Ford Model A Deluxe Phaeton finished in an ever attractive shade of Beige over Brown naugahyde interior! This A still carries a correct 201ci inline four cylinder and three-speed manual transmission with notable features and options that include dual side-mount spares. cowl lights. luggage rack. grille guard. wind wings. Motometer. auxiliary oil pressure gauge. integrated turn signals. LED taillights. burled wood shift knob. driver side-view mirror. beveled rear-view mirror and more! This Phaeton rides on cream colored wire wheels with 4. 75/5. 00-19 Firestone gum-dipped wide whitewall tires! Our example wears serial number 4289299. signifying January 1931 production. and was purchased out of an awesome Illinois Ford collection where it was lovingly owned and driven for the past year. Prior to that. it was restored and enjoyed by an older gentleman in Iowa. who was forced to sell as a result of his health. He was responsible for the restoration. completed about 10 years ago. that included almost every aspect of the car! The engine was rebuilt and equipped with a Weber downdraft carburetor. K&N air filter. six-blade cooling fan. 6V alternator and new starter. While the car does come with the original fuel delivery system. even a purist will find it hard to justify reverting to stock as it just runs so incredibly well with the current set-up. This is one of the most dialed-in A’s we’ve had the pleasure of representing and are sure the next owner will agree! The interior was also completely done with new LeBaron Bonney brown naugahyde with map pockets and correct bucket seats! Finishing off the interior is a polished hand brake and gear shift lever with burled wood knob. Underneath. nearly every major steering. suspension and brake component was gone through to ensure maximum control on the road. Nearly every nut. bolt. bushing and hose appears to have been done at this time. and every other component underneath was refinished in a smooth semi-gloss consistency. Showing 8. 81 miles since restoration. we are confident the next owner of this rare Model A will be the center of attention at Model A Club meets. In addition. this car has been driven with enough frequency to ensure all mechanical components are in arguably better working condition than when new. Included with the car are the aforementioned original intake and rebuilt original carburetor. as well as a jack and tool. and four-piece side curtains.
