If you like Model A's, and you've considered owning one...This is a nice one! Completely restored in 2002 by Bill Kote, a well-known enthusiast and MAFCA Judge, and has been used very sparingly since. This Coupe starts, runs, and drives very nicely.
All accessories function as they should, and this particular coupe has been fitted with a Hi-Lo overdrive so you can drive the freeways with everyone else.
Very nicely appointed with Deluxe cowl lights and the chrome “Flying Quail” radiator cap, this Model A was completely restored utilizing many NOS, and original parts.
The paint scheme is original utilizing original colors including the pin-striping and the wheels, and this particular combination looks excellent and fits the coupe perfectly.
The interior is restored beautifully and correctly, with the original seating, and complementing soft surfaces. The dash and upper door panel areas were hand painted to emulate Mahogany wood, and they show brilliantly. The original gauges are easy to read, and all of the chrome appointments are excellent.
There is absolutely no rust, and this Model A not only maintains its original all metal body, fenders, and running boards, but, it also has its original engine!
Back in these years, the factory used what they called the “engine number” as the VIN, and of course, most of these Model A's engines, specific to the car are long gone, but not this one!
Clean, and tight everywhere you look, this is the Model A to own.
