1930 Ford Model A Roadster

There are those who say that interest in pre-war cars is waning, ut this 1930 Model A will always have a ready, illing, nd enthusiastic audience waiting for it. Loaded with virtually every accessory available, his well-sorted roadster is ideal for touring and looks like a far more substantial and expensive car than it is.The jaunty color combination gives this Model A a flashy look without being too obvious about it. The high-quality restoration is holding up pretty well, ven though the car has been driven and enjoyed, nd the look is one that attracts attention everywhere it goes. The contrasting black fenders and belt moldings give it a detailed look that belies its humble, ffordable status, nd while it is definitely showing some signs of age, t looks quite presentable going down the road and at casual shows. Accessories include a grille guard, ind wings, tep plates, nd dual taillights that are an important safety upgrade. Out front, here's a Boyce Moto-Meter to monitor coolant temperature and the spare tire carries not only a tidy cover, ut also uses an accessory protector between the bumpers to give it a finished look. Henry Ford's "rustless steel" looks great and shines up easily, rotecting the headlights and grille so they'll look this good practically forever. The brown leatherette interior also accurately duplicates the factory look, ith wide pleats and plain door panels that are ideal for the back-to-basics roadster. All open cars got a rubber mat up front, nd the hard rubber steering wheel was universal, oo. More stainless steel forms the simple center instrument panel that's recently been buffed to a great shine. A black vinyl top isn't exactly correct, ut it fits well and the black contrasts nicely with the bodywork, nd the rumble seat area has been upholstered to match the interior. It's actually quite comfortable back there once you master the climbing part, nd with the top down, he Model A looks quite sporting. Even with the top up, he rear window can be opened so you can carry on a conversation with the folks in the rumble seat.Mechanically, very Model A passenger car was identical, ith the same 40-horsepower 200 cubic inch inline-four. Thanks to a generous torque curve and a playful, ossable nature, he Model A feels quick on the road and will happily cruise at 45 MPH. This one has been rebuilt to spec, eeping its 6-volt electrical system and generator, lus the flat copper spark plug leads that are a Model A trademark. It fires quickly with just a little tweaking of the choke and settles into that instantly-recognizable Model A idle. The engine bay isn't exactly pretty, ut the way this Model A runs and drives will reassure you that it has definitely been maintained by an expert. The 3-speed manual transmission requires a quick double-clutch between gears, ut it's easy to master and the equipment is durable enough not to mind while you practice. Braking is decent for a mechanical system and the suspension feels downright agile compared to most of its peers, aking this roadster a very enjoyable car on the road. Six correct straw-colored wire wheels have been fitted with 4.75-5x19 wide whites, iving the humble little Ford a very upscale look indeed.A handsome, un car, he Model A roadster remains near the top of every Ford fan's wish list.
