1931 Ford Model A Touring
Almost two dozen body styles were available, not including commercial models. The Model A Ford came out before the October 1929 stock market crash and was manufactured through the Great Depression. During this period, Henry Ford continued paying his workers $5 a day. The 20 millionth Ford car was produced on 14 April 1931. It was a slant windshield Fordor.
For consignment a 1931 Ford Model A Touring, which has undergone a restoration back in 1978. It retains its nice shine and paint is very good. Exterior surfaces are rust free, and the convertible top is very good. The engine was restored in 1980, and since has been on several road trips with some significant mileage, and it handled these trips with ease and no breakdowns! A nice color combo and looking great in its design to usher out the roaring twenties.
ExteriorA Fordor example, (4 doors), all metal body parts are present and accounted for. A dual cowled hood with venting is fronted by the original chromed radiator cover which shows nicely, with a "chair caned" mesh in front and the flying goose radiator cap topper. The blue oval on the front is deeply embedded into the grille and has a shiny bezel surround. Single headlights on either side are held on by a structural bar cutting across the bow of the radiator and bending into the fender structure. Just below the driver's side headlight is an ah-ooga horn. A chrome dual bar bumper stretches across the front and shows near perfectly. Black all steel curved fenders are floating above yellow painted spoked 19-inch wire wheels on front and rear and are attached by a running board. Just above this board are the doors showing with shiny handles. All steel bodywork is painted in navy blue and shows some patina and paint chip off in the seams with some slight dulling. Also throughout there is a coating of some small spotting similar looking to what would be a light frost on the paint...possibly some dimpling as well. On the front firewall are two running lights on stalks chromed and nice, and also dual Sportslite brand spotlights. A shiny chromed front glass surround cradles the windshield which sports etched floral motif wind wings on either side. Noted doors have no windows and are framed above by the tan canvas top. This top shows nicely, however has some tearing at the windshield mounting area on the driver's side. On back is a chromed and wood frame that folds down to accommodate most likely a steamer trunk. Dual bumpers curve around the sides and stay away from the middle of the rear. Not one but two canvas covered spare tires with fully restored painted yellow wire wheels wrapped in wide white rubber, just like the 4 corners of the car hang on the sides.
Interior2 curved back bench seats are under the canvas top, and present in saddle brown vinyl. These seats are fairly tight, and have a nicely worn look to them, and sport seat belts. Also, plenty of room for the rear passengers who can plant their feet on clean textured rubber floors. On front is an exterior body matching navy blue dash curved to the shape of the bench and highlighted with some yellow pin striping. In the center is a chromed instrument cluster with the ignition key and 2 gauges. All this is frosted by the original steering wheel that has a push button transmission on the column. More rubber for the front floors, and a long blue marble topped shifter is rising from the floor. All the canvas top structural steel is in very good condition as is the underside of the top.
DrivetrainThe original 201ci 4-cylinder engine complete with its 1-barrel carburetor feeding it from the lower side is all there. Some of the green engine paint has worn off near the head gasket and where the water enters the block for cooling of it. A 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive is bolted on to the back and the rear axle is designated as 3.78 gear ratio.
UndercarriageA no rust environment, all painted in black and looking structurally sound and buttoned up for the floorboards and body hangers. Transverse leaf springs are all around underneath, as are mechanical drum brakes. The exhaust is fairly surface rust free, and some oiling is occurring around the transmission housing.
Drive-AbilityA quick starter, and fairly easy driver, this car runs smoothly, has a nice smooth ride, and steers easily with that large steering wheel. All was working on the controls for my test drive.
An earlier restoration still retaining most of its original elegance, and certainly looking like it's getting to usher in another era of partying and celebration, but history will define this upcoming era differently. The cars were still very popular in any form, and this one can take you and the passengers nearly anywhere, even on a long drive!
