The last full year of Model A production was 1931, which marked the production of the 20-millionth Ford: a Model A Fordor sedan produced on 14 April. Model A continued in production until 30 April 1932, when it was replaced by the four-cylinder ‘Model B’ that shared the graceful body of the all-new V8, by which time 5,000,000 had been made. Model A styling was revised again for its final year, a new radiator shell, revamped running boards and lower roof line on selected models being the major changes. The cabriolet was given a makeover while the convertible sedan was an addition to the range and featured fixed side window frames. Twenty-one body styles were offered for 1931, that of the car offered here - Deluxe Roadster - being one of the more popular with almost 57,000 sold that year. With new models waiting in the wings, there were no significant mechanical developments. Subject of a ‘body off’ renovation, this superb Model A Deluxe Roadster is presented in fully restored, ‘as new’ condition, and is unquestionably one of the most handsome of open Model A variants. The car is finished in brown with black chassis, wheels and wings, while the upholstery and interior trim are brown vinyl. Chromium plated fittings include the interior/exterior mirrors, windscreen and side screen frames, door handles, headlamps, side lamps, hub covers, bumpers, side steps, pram irons and dash surround. Other items of equipment include dickey seat, electric windshield wiper, tilting front screen, rear luggage rack, draught excluders, radiator stone guard and rear-mounted spare wheel with cover.
