Lot 025: 1931 FORD MODEL A CABRIOLET

Van Dijk Collection, H&H Sales Limited (3 October 2005)

Finished in beige over black with red pinstriping, this particular left-hand drive example wears two-door Cabriolet bodywork complete with rumble seat. One of the first members of the collection, it was restored a number of years ago but remains highly presentable. Equipped with Ford embossed kick plates on its running boards, Ford 'Twolite' headlamps and a Ford / Boyce motometer, other nice touches include: twin side-mounted spare wheels, a mesh radiator guard, etched glass wind deflectors, scuttle-mounted side lights, rear luggage grid and a Sparton horn. Showing an unwarranted 12,525 miles on its odometer (which may or may not represent the total travelled since its refurbishment), it is trimmed in dark brown upholstery throughout. Exhibiting a gentle patina, the appeal of this 'fully-loaded' Model A is not hard to grasp.
