As the Ford Model A’s replacement was already on the horizon, one might think that there wouldn’t be much new for its last season. However, in November 1930, body style 190A, a newly designed and quite handsome Victoria sedan joined the line-up. This model started to show the influence that Edsel Ford was having on the company by presenting a stylish design to go with the dependable mechanics. It was the first Model A to have a slanted windscreen sans visor and also featured the first built-in trunk, accessible through the back seat of the car. Marketed in the Deluxe trim level, it came with silk roller shades for the rear and both back seat side windows, mohair soft trim, storage pockets in the doors and cowl lights as standard. Despite the throes of the Depression, this new model enjoyed over 40,000 sales in its first year of production.

A part of the McMullen collection since 1999, the car we are delighted to offer features an slightly older but highly professional level restoration. According to the serial number, this is a very early production Victoria, quite possibly sold as a 1930 model when new. As an early example, the roof is trimmed in tan leather; while the body has been finished in an attractive two-tone gray scheme accented with gloss black fenders and cream painted wire wheels. Fitted with the standard rear-mount spare tire and cowl lights, among the many extras included is the chrome plated grille guard, full set of factory tools mounted in a felt-lined display case plus a Ford script Boyce Moto-Meter. The interior of the car has been brought back to an authentic appearance through the use of genuine mohair seating surfaces with complimenting door and side panels, as well as original style floor carpeting.

Considered one of the most desirable body styles in Model A circles, this survivor has escaped the torches and hammers of custom rodders and remains as an icon of a golden age in history when even the most wealthy among us were often able to only afford a Ford.
