1929 Ford Model A 5-Window Coupe
A coupé — also known as coupe — is a car with a fixed-roof body style usually with two doors. The term coupé was first applied to horse-drawn carriages for two passengers without rear-facing seats. The early coupé automobile's passenger compartment followed in general conception the design of horse-drawn coupés. The French variant for this word thus denoted a car with a small passenger compartment.
This nearly perfect example of the Model A from 1929 without a rumble seat is classified as a “5-Window Coupe.” Beautifully restored to original condition, an extremely nice example of early Ford manufacturing.
Excellent condition green over black fenders and running boards, polished to perfection covers the original steel body. A new padded vinyl wraps around the back-window top with matching sun visor, also in new condition covers the drivers compartment. A forward louvered front windscreen provides ventilation and roll up windows keep occupants securely out of the weather. The radiator is protected by a chromed stone guard, and topped with a moto meter cap. The single piece bumper in front and dual split rear bumpers highlight the bottom of the car. A spare tire and wheel to match the other 4 on the car, is mounted in front of the trunk area, and still allows access to the trunk storage.
Mohair covers the seats, door panels, headliner and rear window areas. A rolling shade is seen on the rear window. Beautiful loop pile carpeting is present on the floor of the passenger compartment as well as the trunk lining. An exterior green color matching steel dash, centered by the Ford “mask style” chromed instrument cluster, is fronted by a showroom new steering wheel, chromed handbrake, and chromed floor shift lever. A swirled green and white marble looking knob tops the shift lever. An interesting patterned windlace piping surrounds the doors on the interior of the car.
The standard but fully rebuilt 201ci 4-cylinder engine is fed by a 1-barrel carburetor and produces 40hp. A Ford 3-speed manual transmission is connected to the engine. Underside of this car presents very clean, with typical minimal oiling, and shows solid axle buggy spring suspension as well as disc brakes all around. 440/450/21 wide white sidewall tires mounted on black wire wheels with chrome hub are in seemingly unused condition.
If you are looking to own a true antique automobile, and don't want to spend any time restoring, then this is the classic car for you. Everything about the presentation of this car is beautiful. A well thought out restoration, with a mere 796 miles since its rebuild put this car in an award winner in its class. Not a typical Model A without the rumble seat and the interesting padded top configuration, there are many years for this car to be enjoyed.
