1931 MODEL A 2-DOOR VICTORIA COUPE
BALANCED ENGINE, VERY NICE!
Rare Model A Victoria
Ready to Tour and Show
VEHICLE HISTORY: The current owner is a Brass Era Packard collector who tours and shows his early 1900s era Packard Automobiles. He wanted a more “Modern Car” to drive and show so he bought this professionally restored example out of South Dakota. After a few tours and drives he has decided this Model A is too “Modern” for his tastes and has decided to sell it. His sale will be your gain as you won’t find a nicer Victoria on the market today!
MARQUE HISTORY: Henry Ford’s successful replacement for the Model T, the Model A, continued the Model T’s legacy to put “America on Wheels” from 1928 to 1931. The final year of Model A production brought revised styling with a relief effect radiator shell, running boards fitted with single piece splash aprons, and the sedans had a smoother roofline. The 1931 models also benefited from the substantial face lift for Model As in 1930. Larger 4.75 tires on smaller 19” wheels resulted in an overall height reduction which along with wider fenders, a deeper radiator shell, and the elimination of the cowl stanchion were all contributors to the 1930 Model A’s fresh new look. Over 4.8 million Model As were produced between 1928 and 1931.
For 1931 there were many body styles available and the Victoria 2-Door Coupe, with a body by Murray, featured longer doors for easier access, dropped floors to allow a lower roofline, a shortened coupe-like body with a “bustle” back, luggage space behind the rear seat, wood grained dash, wood grained window surrounds, and slanting windshield. Only 33,906 Victorias were produced for 1931 with a base price of $580.

We do a mechanical and cosmetic inspection to each vehicle before listing it for sale. This report is included below will provide a reasonable description of the vehicle condition. Older vehicles are subject to normal wear and tear and we have tried to indicate the overall condition of the vehicle to the best of our ability. But, we can not always find everything that is not perfect with a vehicle, so independent inspections are welcome and encouraged. We drive each vehicle approximately 20 miles, but this is no indication of its long term road-worthiness. The only guarantee with an older vehicle is that someplace, sometime, something will need repaired!
