1930 Model A Coupe  The original Model A\'s had a top speed of about 65 mph. In 1930, that was very fast for a road car. They had mechanical drum brakes because short of hand brakes and a few outliers, that was the standard. The fuel tank was located in the cowl between the firewall and the dash panel and had a visual gauge. Now you know where the firewall got its name! For consignment, a 1930 Model A that we\'re going to assume can go more than 65 mph.  This is a road ready steel and fiberglass street rod with a raspberry coat and all the right ingredients for some showtime and icecream run enjoyment.  Inside and out, this checks all the boxes for the Model A you\'ve always wanted but didn\'t have the time to build.   Exterior Two stage Raspberry Metallic paint covers this car in a style they couldn\'t even have imagined in 1930.  Clearcoat wasn\'t really invented yet and metallic paint, made from fish scales in the 30\'s, was only available for the very rich.  That said, it fits this car well and is contrasted by the chrome bumper, lightbar, and grille which is topped with a quail ornament, symbolizing quickness.  The all steel tall cab has not been chopped, so full sized windows prevail and the windshield is shaded by an exterior visor.  The cab sits on wide flowing fiberglass fenders connected by a large running board.  Glossy raspberry paint covers the rear section which is enhanced by split bumpers, (oh, you thought they were invented by Chevrolet in 1970?), and rectangular chrome exhaust tips.  The car wears 15-inch Crager SS wheels and has a desirable raked stance.  Imperfections are small but numerous and include scratches, bubbles, chips, and cracking.   Interior Open the doors and the first thing that came to this writer\'s mind is old fashioned ribbon candy.  The panels carry over the raspberry although it\'s mixed with white vinyl.  The bucket seats have white inserts on raspberry sides and headrest.  The headliner and sidewalls take on the white and create an airy, open feel to the interior.  A wood rimmed Grant 3 spoke steering wheel is front and center on a modern tilt column.  Matching wood covers the dashboard where two big gauges flank the column, backed by diamond shaped billet plates.  More Equus white faced gauges take the center position on the dash, old school style, embedded in a polished clover shaped frame.  A modern Pioneer AM/FM/CD head unit is in front of the passenger but easily reachable by the driver.  An American Shifter push button knob tops the floor mounted shifter in a rubber boot.  Loop style carpeted black mats cover the floor and external speakers are mounted in the footwell which also has raspberry vinyl walls.  Drivetrain A 302ci Ford V8 is under the hood, a welcome sight for those who disdain the common Chevy small block transplant.  Even better, it has aluminum heads and a Holley 4-barrel carburetor on top.  A C4 3-speed automatic transmission backs it all up and sends power to the Ford 9 rear.  Vintage drum brakes wouldn\'t make sense here, so the car is now equipped with power discs in front and power drums in the back.  Headers take the place of exhaust manifolds and send the burnt gas southward.  The exposed engine shows well with gleaming chrome valve covers, yellow wires, and a polished carb.   Undercarriage Generally, driver quality underneath with minimal surface rust and some road dirt.  The oil pan and transmission pan look dry.  The dual exhaust finds its way back to Flowmaster mufflers then heads over the axle to exit and finally exit out the back.   Front and back have four bar suspension with transverse leaf springs.   Drive-Ability The unchopped top allows for great visibility.  Even the back window is larger than many A\'s we\'ve driven.  The seats are comfortable, and the cabin is compact but not claustrophobic.  We prime the carb and turn the key and she rumbles eagerly onto the test loop.  The exposed engine is not only great for show, but emits
