1931 Ford Model A Victoria Coupe

Rare Model A Victoria

Professionally Restored

Ready to Tour and Show

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION:

VEHICLE HISTORY: The current owner is a Brass Era Packard collector who tours and shows his early 1900s era Packard Automobiles. He wanted a more “Modern Car” to drive and show so he bought this professionally restored example out of South Dakota. After a few tours and drives he has decided this Model A is too “Modern” for his tastes and has decided to sell it. His sale will be your gain as you won’t find a nicer Victoria on the market today!

MARQUE HISTORY: Henry Ford’s successful replacement for the Model T, he Model A, ontinued the Model T’s legacy to put “America on Wheels” from 1928 to 1931. The final year of Model A production brought revised styling with a relief effect radiator shell, unning boards fitted with single piece splash aprons, nd the sedans had a smoother roofline. The 1931 models also benefited from the substantial face lift for Model As in 1930. Larger 4.75 tires on smaller 19” wheels resulted in an overall height reduction which along with wider fenders, deeper radiator shell, nd the elimination of the cowl stanchion were all contributors to the 1930 Model A’s fresh new look. Over 4.8 million Model As were produced between 1928 and 1931.

For 1931 there were many body styles available and the Victoria 2-Door Coupe, ith a body by Murray, eatured longer doors for easier access, ropped floors to allow a lower roofline, shortened coupe-like body with a “bustle” back, uggage space behind the rear seat, ood grained dash, ood grained window surrounds, nd slanting windshield. Only 33,906 Victorias were produced for 1931 with a base price of $580.
