1931 Ford Model A

1931 Ford Model A Roadster -TraditionalHot Rod

This is a very nice, sweet,little traditional Hot Rod. It is a mostly recent and ongoing professional build, started around 2010,and it has been driven very little over the past few short Maine summers. It runs, drives, handlesand brakes very well. It is very comfortable to sit in and drive.It is a trueearly 1950's stylebuild. The only visible newer components are the Buick aluminum 45 finned brakes, which are correct for 1958 and are a sensible upgrade that would have been done backin the day.

The engine has a slight oil leak. The speedometer, parking brake and turn signals are not hooked up.

Title: Maine is a non-title state for older vehicles. This vehicle is currentlyregistered in the State of Maine with no title. Iam able to provide a Pennsylvaniatitle from a previous owner for the vehicle at no extra cost if you require one.

Payment: I acceptcash (USA$)at pickup. A bank transfer is also possible, but this will slow down closing the deal as I wait for all funds to clear into my hands before releasing the vehicle. I can help with loading the vehicle but the buyer must make transport arrangements.

Countries:If you find that your country is blocked, andyou are a serious bidder / buyer, please contact me so I can change the settings to allow you to participate.

The buyer must understand that this vehicle is built with period parts. Some of these parts are new, some are old. A vehicle such as this will require maintenance and repairs much more frequently than a modern vehicle.

This vehicle is sold as is with no warranty. NO TRADES!

I will try to list all of the particulars of this vehicle. If after reading my entire auction description you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Serious customers are free to ask for my cell phone number as well. More photos are available too...
