One of Paul’s Excellent Model A Videos, this one is in the style of Doug DeMuro
The Ford Model A is considered by many to be the best American car ever made. Today, I review a 1931 Ford Model A Sport Coupe. I’m going to share some of the Ford Model A’s unique details and features, then take it on the road and tell you what it’s like to drive a Ford Model A. It’s no wonder the Ford Model A is the most thoroughly documented collector car ever. If you subscribe to this YouTube channel right now, your Model A won’t break down on the next tour. Looking for a Ford Model A parts supplier to partner with in future videos.
Before beginning the removal of the rest of the rivets, I found that the left A pillar windscreen moulding that we originally thought would be difficult to remove proved to be easier than expected, so no need to remove the header rail
Now it was time to tackle all of the rivets on the left A pillar windlace retainer with the Dremel tool
After masking everything as best possible it took around two hours to grind off the heads off the rivets and then driving out the remains out with a centre punch. This enabled the removal of the retainer and the remains of the original windlace.
I’m a proud member of the Secrets of Speed Society and always enjoy the Secrets Vintage Speed & Sport Magazine, I’m proud to say that I’ve had a small contribution published regarding the clutch pedal modification that has been made to my 1929 Model A Ford Sport Coupe.
Simon and I came up with the modification to overcome the dropped foot. It’s simple but effective and I hope it can help others?
If you have an interest in vintage speed and particularly four banger Fords I can highly recommend the SOSS, visit them here and sign up.
Had a quick discussion with Neil Fretwell of the VHRA at Wheels Day about our respective Sport Coupes. Neil’s has a really nice roof chop, and he’s kindly sent me a link to a H.A.M.B thread with some details and pictures. Food for thought in the future maybe? 🙂
Here’s a rare Deuce body style, the Sport Coupe. Ford built fewer than 3,000 units in the USA. The Sport Coupe featured a wood and fabric top resembling a Cabriolet, but fixed in place. This one is tricked out with a shaved grille shell, accessory headlamps, and a ’37 DeSoto bumper.
