Classic beauty . . . Classic cars fan Ray Taylor, of Tapanui sits a the wheel of his 1931 Ford Model A Deluxe Coupe.

A good keen Ford man, Ray Taylor, of Tapanui, recently bought a 1931 Model A Deluxe Coupe to add to his collection.

Mr Taylor said it was the shape of the car that he particularly liked.

“These old classic cars have great lines – they are a pleasure to look at as well as drive.”

The Model A was imported into New Zealand in December 2005, and Mr Taylor bought the car from a man in Waipukurau, in Hawke’s Bay, just over a year ago.

Ford produced about 23,000 Model A vehicles in 1931.

After the Model T, the Model A became one of Henry Ford’s most popular cars.

A total of 5 million of all body styles were built from 1927-1931, Mr Taylor said.

The Deluxe model is fitted with an electric overdrive, which was innovative for that time.

There is also a dicky seat, cowl lamps and twin tail lamps.

Coming from America, the Ford is a left-hand drive, and almost in original condition.

“I have made a couple of small changes to the car, but overall it is in pristine condition, and very comfortable to drive.”latest Nike SneakersCheap Wholesale Nike Shoes,wholesale Nike Jordan Shoes,cheap Nike Air Max Shoes,wholesale China
