5 Window Coupe
This 1931 Ford Model A 5 Window Coupe sports some serious visual impact with its timeless form and well-appointed interior while offering a rock solid driving experience via an array of well-chosen mechanical components. It's a very compelling ride as it stands, and with the right focused attention, could be further transformed into an absolute standout.
Such a stylish ride! Factor in that signature compact cabin looming over the stout body and it's easy to see why the Fords of this era lend themselves so readily to streetrod modification. In this case, a striking white exterior provides this classic with a singular appearance and the color is definitely a great fit, so this vintage Ford is a head turner in its present state, but as nearly two decades have passed since its trip to the paint booth, it will need a freshening up to regain its top form. At that point, this ride could definitely make an impact on the car show circuit. Whether you decide for the viable option of driving it just as it is, or take the necessary steps to elevate its appearance, you'll be working with a good foundation. The body is almost entirely steel, with the front and rear fenders being the only exceptions, so it's well suited to withstand both the passage of time and frequent driving - and the collection of chrome on display is in solid shape.
This '31 offers a fresh, well-detailed interior from which to hold court on the asphalt. The pair of bucket seats inside the cabin wear striking blue leather covers and are well padded to provide plenty of comfort while you're behind the wheel. A stout woodgrain Grant steering wheel sits on the tilting chrome column and the dash area is equipped with an array of AutoMeter gauges - all of which are in good working order and look great surrounded by smooth blue steel. Clean carpet lines the floor below, the fresh appearance of the door panels to each side suggests that they were recently installed and the added power windows are a welcome feature in any car you'd be planning on spending appreciable time in - and this one certainly qualifies in that regard. Raise the deck lid and you'll notice that the rear storage area is very roomy and, as this classic makes its way into your garage, there will be a Boss AM/FM stereo with iPod connectivity standing by inside, waiting to be installed for your listening pleasure.
The collection of top tier mechanical components featured on this vintage Ford equip it to provide an exhilarating yet dependable driving experience. Raise a section of the folding hood and you'll be in for a quite a visual treat. The 350 cubic inch V8 inside the compartment wears an assortment of chrome components to provide plenty of eye candy and is armed with a Summit AFR intake manifold and Edelbrock 4 barrel carb, and new fuel pump and fuel lines ensure it gets properly fed. The potent powerplant exhales into a pair of shorty headers leading to a dual exhaust that provides a fittingly commanding exhaust note as this classic cruises on a suspension equipped with rear coilovers for a smooth, quiet ride on its set of 15” Cragar wheels that position sizable 275s in back to put a vise like grip on the asphalt. Farther forward, a custom aluminum radiator pairs with an electric fan to keeping operating temperatures in check.
