REMARKS:
APPX 50 MILES ON THIS BUILD NOW.
THIS IS A VERY SOLID, STRAIGHT, TIGHT, 1931 FORD 2 DOOR SEDAN CAB.
HISTORICALLY, MODEL A COUPES. TUDORS & FORDORS TEND TO KEEP THEIR VALUE BETTER THAN OTHER 30's BODY STYLES DUE TO THE DEMAND FOR THEM AND THE INCREASED DIFFICULTY IN FINDING THEM.
LIKE MOST SUICIDE FRONT AXLE/SUSPENSION SETUPS IT CAN GET SQUIRRELY ON A VERY BUMPY ROAD. THE FRICTION SHOCKS DO A GREAT JOB OF BRINGING THE FRONT CORNERS BACK DOWN FAST AND REDUCES TRACKING . WILL NOT DRIVE LIKE A NEW VEHICLE BUT FUN TO DRIVE. TAKES SOME GETTING USED TO.
