Ford Model A Convertible with dickie seat. 1931.
This Model A Roadster was bought as a private buy and I searched for one of the best I could find. This was a recent California import which had major restoration work done in the states to an excellent standard . Mechanically the car was superb, it runs beautiful and stops just fine with everything being done including new style waterpump etc. However the paintwork though no rust issues or anything serious it was not upto my exacting standards with scratches and a small trolley dent or two etc. So rather than let my hard work go to waste i took it upon my self to embark on another total full strip down and restoration to make it perfect. £8000 later its now show standard. The bodywork is superb and is now as straight as an arrow. Though still in original 2 tone color scheme. I had the paint scanned and sourced the original colors. The fenders, running boards, screen, hood etc etc were all removed , refurbed and replaced. All new rubber body seals were replaced and all new stainless panel fixings were added. All new trim like the ali check running board plates, the stainless spare wheel surround, the steps to get to the dickie seat, the grab handles, the interior door handles and chrome dash panel all replaced new. A new chrome radiator guard was added after having the whole assembly out . New rear lights assemblies with new 6 volt LED bulbs and new lamp to fender brackets, new number plate bracket with new plate and chrome surround. New rear boot lid handle in chrome . I also fitted the Deluxe glass wind deflectors. There is much, much more. I decided at huge expense to buy the matching original style travel trunk on the rear after refurbing the luggage rack. This is not included in the sale but can be bought separately . The spoked wheels are 1st class after again matching the color and touching in any scratches and adding all new chrome center caps. Shod with correct period whitewalls.
So to summarize this is a show ready 1931 Model A, which is one of the best for sale in the UK. Mechanically brilliant and now cosmetically brilliant and huge expenditure. This Model A has never been seen on the show circuit but is now ready to drive to any venue and win trophies.
