1930 Ford 5-Window Coupe Additional Info:

Looking appropriately flashy and making great use of its sturdy steel body as a foundation, this 1930 Ford Model A 5 Window Coupe pays a fitting homage to a time when the Model A, a vastly improved successor to the pivotal Model T, hit its crescendo of popularity and became a coveted addition to garages across the country. This well-appointed coupe will be a great addition for the car enthusiast seeking an outstanding rolling reminder of early 20th century American automotive ingenuity, but with an added tastefully finished, street rod look.
Besides its substantial mechanical superiority to its successor, the Model A also represented large strides in stylistic refinement, attaining a look that made it the perfect starting point for legions of street rods to follow. There are a lot of great features on this vintage Ford, including its very clean yellow paint that's complemented nicely by the ornate, chrome-clad Ford grille up front and a very era-appropriate leather storage box in back that's flanked by a pair of gracefully protruding tail lights. Its forward leaning stance gives it a proper, street rod vibe, as does its semi-open engine compartment, a look that also allows everyone to catch a glimpse of the V8 power on display. This Ford's steel body gives it a decided advantage over its fiberglass rivals as far as heat resistant durability is concerned, and it's served its purpose well here, as this Coupe remains well aligned and unyielding to the elements.
The tan cloth interior represents an inspired take on vintage car accommodations, incorporating a pair of high backed bucket seats with a refined, modern look in the cabin that matches the surrounding doors and headliner perfectly. There's a creative blending of vintage and modern elements in play here - the aftermarket, white-faced VDO gauges, Pioneer AM/FM/CD player and Vintage Air climate controls recessed into a well-prepped wooden dash, a tilt steering column sitting adjacent to the Model A's ramrod straight windshield, the five panels worth of tinted windows that reside against the backdrop of the classically-shaped cabin and the distinctive-looking B&M shifter sitting on its pedestal only a short distance from the antique look of era-appropriate pedals. The storage area in back offers an appreciable amount of usable space, with a 6-disc CD changer neatly tucked away in front, and is lined with very clean tan carpeting.
While outwardly this Model A represents a modded take on nostalgic motoring, its drivetrain is all about strong-performing streetability. A 350 cubic inch V8 sits on view in the engine compartment, outfitted with a 4-barrel Edelbrock carb and polished intake manifold to up its performance ante. The powerplant represents itself well, firing right up and sounding great as it exhales out into a pair of headers leading to its dual exhausts, and is paired with a 3-speed TH350 automatic transmission whose appearance in so many street rods is no mere coincidence, as it's known for its smooth shifting and rock-solid durability. It's outfitted with disc brakes in front to provide fade-resistant stopping power during everyday driving conditions. This steel-bodied classic sits on a set of Ford spoked wheels - 14" in front and 15" in back - that are outfitted with Yokohama Avid Touring tires.
If you're looking for a well-configured, steel bodied street rod that ably captures the Model A's legendary mystique, but also offers modern-day durability and drivability, you need to see this 1930 Ford Model A 5 Window Coupe. Call today!
