Unmolested, California Rust Free Survivor.

Grandpa says: "King Solomon In All His Glory, Never Rode in a Finer Piece of Iron".
This 1931 Ford Model A Coupe is as nice a survivor as they get.
All Steel Body; No fiberglass!
Although the paint might be original, it has scratches and chips just as it should.
"Gear heads" remark that the "patina" is awesome!.This is not a Museum piece, but a really fine outstanding example of how a Model A should look and run.
Purchased from the second owner in 82 years, this Model A is as nice as you would want. The interior is vinyl and probably was restored 20 or 30 years ago. The drive train more recently.
All the gauges work perfectly. The charging system (generator) works as it should.
Brand new six volt battery. Wire wheels and tires are good. All the glass (windshield windows, glass windwings) are good. The chrome and bumpers, are exceptional!
The motor starts right up. Runs smooth. The transmission (3 speed) shifts fine.
No leaks.The brakes stop really good! The hand brake works good as well.
The floor board (original wood) is in great shape.
The radiator does not leak. The radiator cap is a vintage airplane with a thermometer.The propeller spins as you drive.
The klaxon (ahooga horn) works too!
Has the original jack and tool kit (crank included).
No rust or rot at all! This is not a rusted out, fiberglass, East Coast, junk box.
This is an original, all steel body! This Model A is rust free NOT because it had rust repaired, it is rust free because it NEVER had any!
Comes with an original 1931 California License plate and a 60's registered, California Black plate.
Has a clean California Title. I really hate to see it go!
Because of it's age (82 years old), this Model A is being sold As-Is, without warranty, either expressed or implied. If you have any questions, please ask BEFORE you bid. Buyers are encouraged to inspect this Model A PRIOR to bidding.

Nick Scheele was born in the UK in 1944 and joined the Ford Motor Company upon graduating from the University of Durham in 1966, staying within the Blue Oval's portfolio for the entirety of his career. After moving to North America in 1978, he rose through the ranks to become president of Ford's Mexican operations in 1988. After acquiring Jaguar, Ford appointed Scheele as its chairman.
Scheele subsequently acted as chairman of all of Ford's European operations, making difficult decisions to take the division out of the red and into the black. He briefly headed up Ford's North American division before he was appointed in 2001 as president and chief operating officer of the global automaker, working under CEO Bill Ford following the departure of Jacques Nasser departure and retaining the role until his retirement in 2005.
The process of shutting down the Mercury is complete. Ford officially made the decision to close its mid-level brand in June of 2010. In the months that followed, Ford offered its dealers money to stop selling the cars, with production shutting down in September. The last Mercury, a Mariner, rolled off the assembly line in the beginning of October and former spokesperson Jill Wagner said her good-byes to both the car and her job. Now the last piece of the brand has come down as dealers are removing any and all Mercury signage from their lots.

Recreating the famous chase scene from Bullitt has become almost an art form in its own right. We've seen it done in a music video, with scale models and even in commercials. There are few films that are as defined by a single scene as the 1968 classic. Even if you don't know a single beat of the plot, the Highland Green Ford Mustang racing a Dodge Charger through the hilly streets of San Francisco is famous. It's so well known that the Silverstone Classic has created a homage to promote its celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang at this year's event in July.
Filmed around the famous UK circuit, the short film generally gets the key points of the scene right. It even has a green Volkswagen Beetle that keeps reappearing, as in the movie. Unfortunately, its Steve McQueen stand-in looks a little too old for the role. While the video shortens the chase considerably, it's still great to see these '60s behemoths leaning and sliding around the track. Scroll down for a touch of nostalgia thanks to one of the greatest scenes ever in cinema - we've got both the recreation and the original chase seen from the movie waiting for you.
