1931 Ford Model A 180 Deluxe Phaeton Engine no. A4553484

Estimate: €0
Price realised:  €29,900
ca. US$34,846
Lot number 275, Views: 15

Ford produced roughly half as many cars in 1931 as they had the year before, with most models being proportionately reduced in their numbers. A mere 2,229 Deluxe Phaetons such as this car were delivered. Interestingly, it would appear to carry one of the series of engines that Ford had produced outside of the US, this being built in the Trafford Park works in Manchester. Amazingly, Ford had shaved $70 off the price of the model for 1931, bringing it in at $580. As with the '30 in the collection, the lines of these cars make them very handsome and practical touring cars. This carries Deluxe features of side mounted spare with chromed metal cover, chromed windscreen pillars, mesh radiator grill cover and the interior is in the stock color of brown leather. Ford do not appear to have offered red as an option on these cars, but the refinish in this scheme contrasted with black wings and body moldings suits it well, as does its light canvas top. The papers on file chart arrival in the collection twenty-one years ago in the summer 1997.
