1930 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan The Tudor sedan body style was one of the first Model A body styles. In fact, the mysterious new Ford seen on the streets of Detroit in the fall of 1927 was indeed the new Model A Tudor Sedan. The most popular of all Model A body styles, the Standard Tudor was available in all 4 Model A years, with well over 1.25 million of them being built between 1927 and 1931. 1 in 1.25 million you could say for this consignment. You could also say it also has some nice butterscotch and brown paint, good chrome, and wire wheels. I say it\'s straight and true and was in a collectors garage and not driven very often recently. Exterior A butterscotch Tudor body and front cowl are all bathed in butterscotch paint. This paint shows well with just some peel off around the frame on top for the canvas panel on the roof. Brown fenders undulate up and down and meet in the center for the running boards. These boards have some metal rust out on their edges, and the fenders have battle cases throughout. The older restoration shows up more on the fenders than it does the body. Chrome is in good condition surrounding the radiator, making the round casings for the headlights and covering the 2 bar bumpers on front and rear. A covered spare tire is mounted to the back of the body and when you look at the car from the back the color box and shine of the split bumpers is fab! Cream painted 19-inch wire spoked wheels are wrapped in wide whites weighing in at 4.75/5.00-19 rubber. Interior A swing of each door and what to my surprise the ubiquitous trim color is popular for 1972 avocado, rust and cream slate pattern textured shag. Just delicious! This carpeting covers the floors, and all the vertical panels. Within all this carpeting are 2 low back tuck and roll saddle colored vinyl bomber style buckets. In back is a full saddle covered bench stretching from carpeting to carpeting. In front a swooping arched tan metal dash top has an elongated oval black dash front. On this is the Ford mask style instrument cluster showing plenty of patina and aging gracefully in its warm finish. The headliner is just slightly lumpy, is in tan velour and has wood ribbed separators, all above the passengers. That carpeting is so retro I can\'t get over it! Shagalicious! Drivetrain Under the hood in a mostly restored engine bay is a 4 cylinder in 201ci inline form. It has some surface rust on the head top and appears unrestored. It does run though and has a 3-speed manual transmission on back. Undercarriage Light surface rust can be seen with some areas sprayed with a rattle can in black. Some plywood is on the floor pans and is not rotted, just grayed. Transverse leaf springs are on all 4 corners, as are mechanical drum brakes. Drive-Ability Starts up and runs like a 1930 Model T should! I felt like I was in the 1930\'s finished off in a 70\'s attire piece of history. An older restoration and some even still original as it was in an estate for a long time, most of the time not running. Nice coloring, interesting interior, and original engine.
