I posted some pictures of my new to me 1931 Model A Deluxe Roadster close to a year ago, here's some updated pictures. It is now Vermillion Red, instead of the drab slate gray, I just finished up mounting 4 out of 6 new tires, at least I got the most important ones on the car ;-) the 4 on the ground.... 2 more wide whites to mount, new wind wings, stainless spare tire covers, mirrors, a little polish and wax. And we'll be on the road again.

That's a great looking car.
I actually have a Roadster Deluxe on my bucket list to go along with the Model T stall-mates. Probably sell/trade the '30 Tudor though, can't afford another one without sacrificing one, and frankly don't have the room either

Thanks you to all you guys .

Dave, I like your A. Great looking car! They were almost twins.......

Tim I like my A, it doesn't cancel out the cool factor of our 1915 T roadster though. When I sold my 1911 over a year ago, I said no more T's but with in 4 months I had another one. Can't get away from them!

Very nice!

I'm always contemplating my next pre-war Ford, and the Model A's look pretty appealing. :-)

Steve,

Great looking Model A! I've always thought the Model A Roadsters 1930-31 were one of the best looking Fords ever produced. It is also great to be able to show folks how much changed between the 1915 and 1931 Fords as you point out the differences on the cars.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Thanks Hap,
I tend to agree with you, but then again most any roadster is pretty appealing.

Derek, if you find it possible to get one at some point and time I'd say do it, you'll enjoy the A.

I found this one on craigslist, and was lucky enough to buy it for 1/3 of its value, it was a complete frame off restoration in 2000, and had sat for the last 11-+ years the owner had passed away in 2001-02 within an hour of getting it home I put a fresh battery in it, new gas, filed the points....and it fired right up and ran good.
So all I've done is freshened it up some to make a good driver.
