1931 Ford Model A Victoria Coupe "Vicky" (All Steel Body)
Thank you for viewing my listing on this ultra clean show quality 1931 Vicky with an original 1931 all steel body (factory Henry steel/not chopped). This car does not have one ounce of fiberglass on it. This car has approximately 100 miles on it since built/painted/finished. Everything was redone with the best possible option, no expense spared. Please read the entire ad, I did my best to include everything.
You would be reluctant to find a cleaner vehicle anywhere in the US. The underside is as pretty as the topside. Every surface is down to the frame, suspension, motor, drivetrain, ect is either painted or polished. No nut or bolt was overlooked. The doors handles are shaved, the doors are flush fit. The motor is a brand new 350 GM Goodwrench crate motor with 170 shakedown miles purchased from Jeg's mated to a completely redone TH350 transmission with billet pan and upgraded shift kit. A Holley 600cfm 4 barrel carb was added for good measure. Cooling is handled by a Brass Works radiator.
The body is comprised of a 1932 grill shell laid back, Rootlieb, Inc fabricated the hood sides. The roof is ribbed steel, the rear fenders are bobbed (steel), the front fenders, running boards, and hood are all steel. The rear lights are all flush mounted along with 3rd brake light. All the weather stripping was replaced, new rear side glass, windshield, and rear window (all lightly tinted). There is a push/pop fuel filler door and lastly the paint is done in a beautiful and near flawless Chrysler PS2 Metallic Silver.
The interior is brand new done in 1960's style black rolled and pleated naugahide. The front buckets have seatbealts and fold forward/adjustable. There is a removable back seat with in seat storage all custom made but looks factory. All of the carpet, floormats, insulation, and sound deadening are new. The roof liner is done in the same naugahide as the seats and doors and truly a clean and well finished piece.
The chassis is made up of all Chassis Engineering parts, there is a Chassis Engineering 4" dropped front axle. It has an S/S 4 bar front end and out back a mid-year corvette independent rear end with disc brakes and ebrake. Steering is handled by a Flaming River Vega-style box. The brakes are 4 wheel power disc with GM mid-size calipers up front. Real wire hotrod wheels with center caps and beauty rings on all 4 corners with nearly brand new tires mounted.
The battery is mounted in the chassis, remote mounted charging posts are on the passenger size under car. There is a kill switch mounted on floor under the passenger seat as well. There are VDO gauges handling business for the driver. A late model chrysler 6-disc changer stereo is mounted up in the headliner. This Vicky has a Vintage Air A/C, heat, and defrost system. The a/c system condenser is custom mounted beautifully underneath the car with fans (can be seen in undercarraige photos). The A/C system will need to be charged and is literally the only thing that will need to be done by the next owner.
The original vin tag is still mounted on the frame and included with the car but not installed are reproduction vin tags than can be mounted anywhere. This car has never been waxed since painted. You will see many street rods of different quality, age, and builders, however, I am confident you will not find a cleaner 31 Vicky built with as much love, care, and effort as this. Truly a remarkable example that not only shows well but drives well to back it up. Save yourself 10's of thousands of dollars and many years of your life buying essentially a brand new build.
