This is not your Cookie Cutter Coupe! This is a one of a kind Model A Coupe that has a lot of history, are parts, atina and was very active in the Colorado car scene for many years. It was inspiration for the movie Gears, rease and Guitars! To see the "A" Coupe in action, earch you tube movie trailers for Gears Grease and Guitars! It won first place in the World of Wheels Car Show! This is one Crazy Cool Coupe! No trades! But would consider a partial trade for a 1932 Ford frame or chassis. I am starting a new Project!
