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.

Model A Ford Sport Coupe Windlace Challenge Part 3

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.

Had a few days off work and with Simon’s help caught up with a number of tasks on the A :

New Rear Spring

Tube Rear Shock Absorbers

Repair Offside Rear Wheel Arch

Repair Seat Back Brackets

Fix Slight Steering/Front Shock Absorber Issue

In fact we did every I’d planned and in two days!

Special thanks to John Cochran as we couldn’t have done the job without the use of his spring spreader 🙂

Roadster Update

My friend John is restoring a Model A Roadster, I poped over the night to check on his progress.

The frame has been powder coated and a number of ancillaries have been refitted, it looks great , I’m very jealous!

He also had an old frame that he’s breaking for parts, the frame had a juice brake set up, so I am going to buy the front drums as they’ll match my 1948 setup on the Sport Coupe.
