1930 Ford Model A Rumble Seat Coupe Roadster


Fully restored by the previous owner in an attractive blue and black livery, this exceptional 1930 Ford Model A Rumble Seat Coupe Roadster benefits from a professionally rebuilt drivetrain. The stock Model A engine block was sleeved and had shell bearings installed in place of the original babbits. The rotating mass (including the crankshaft and flywheel) was balanced and provided with high-compression pistons, mild performance camshaft and a high-compression Police specification cylinder head (B-insignia casting) with stainless steel valves and hardened seats to allow use of unleaded fuel. The original popout ignition remains in a nod to period correct standards. Best of all, a Volvo overdrive, high-speed differential and rebuilt shock absorbers have been fitted, and turn signals added for safety. A luggage rack and rear mounted spare complete the package. A truly exceptional classic, this is a car to preserve and hand down to a future generation to show the beauty of a true American classic.

Auction Estimate:  $19,000-22,000

The owner states:

“This is a 1930 Model A Roadster with a rumble seat, luggage rack and rear mounted spare tire.  I have been a member of a Model A club in my home town for over 35 years.  A few years ago, one of my good friends, in the Model A Club, had just finished restoring this car and got sick and thought he was going to die.  I have always liked the car and he wanted to sell it.  So, I bought it.  It has a stock Model A block and has been sleeved and bearings instead of babbits.  It has a balance crank shaft, high compression pistons and high compression police head.  It has a Volvo over-drive, turn signals, slightly modified cam and a turned down and balanced fly wheel.  This is an excellent running car and very fast.  I never thought I would sell any of my cars, but it is getting to a time in my life that I need to liquidate.  This has been one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life.  It’s time for someone else to be the caretaker of this beautiful car.”
