1931 Ford Model A Deluxe Tudor Phaeton Model 180

For sale is a very rare and very difficult to find Model A FORD ~ a 1931 Ford Model A Deluxe Tudor Phaeton Model 180 in Washington Blue.
The car which spent most of its life in California and has only 51,000 original miles on it. In the late 1980's it was purchased and transported to central New York. The car has a very solid body and was painted approximately 25 years ago. The doors even open and close without any issues.
The new black top and new upholstery throughout was installed two years ago.
Since the owner wanted to drive and enjoy the car, he set it up to be driven by installing a professionally rebuilt Ford Model B counterbalanced touring engine with a high compression head, a new V-8 clutch, a new V-8 pressure plate, a lightened and balance flywheel, all new babbitt bearings, new rings, new pistons and new stainless steel valves to burn modern gas.
The car does however come with its original, running stock Model A Ford engine if the new owner wanted to re-install it.
To make this car more reliable on today's busy highways it also has a new BRASSWORKS of California brass radiator, a new leak-less water pump, a new 6 volt alternator, a new modern distributor and a new 5 blade composite high cooling fan blade but include with this car is the old original Model A Ford 2 bladed metal fan.
So it shifts smoother this great running car also has a new Mitchell fully synchronized transmission along with many other accessories including a clock mirror, an original Unity Sport Light, original Fox tire locks on both spares.
To give the car a better ride and better braking the 16" FORD wire wheels have been installed with new Firestone radial tires. It has the original 19" Model A wire wheels for the dual side mount spares because the larger radial tires would not fit in the fender wells. This car also comes with the 4 original 19" wire wheels but without tires.
There is a custom made (shorter) trunk mounted on the trunk rack. The shorter trunk allows the top to fold down and rest in the proper position without hitting the trunk.
This great old Model A also has a stainless steal exhaust system and stainless steel bumpers.
If you are looking for an unusual Model A and want something that you can jump in and drive anywhere you will love this car!
