This car is a local Yuma County car since new. Ford designed the sport coupe to look as if it had a folding top, but it actually has a canvas covering over a fixed wooden framework. If you wanted a drop top version, you would buy the cabriolet- it’s top folded down, but it still had roll up glass windows. If you were more adventurous, you got a roadster with it’s convertible top, and no side windows at all. In case of inclement weather, it was supplied with side curtains that you would position onto the doors with a metal frame and a series of snaps to help keep most of the rain or snow out of the interior. This vehicle had a ground up restoration by a local Model A Ford specialist in the early 1960’s. I have done the repairs on it for the past several years, which included an engine replacement. One of it’s many period accessories is the rare Twin-X two speed rear axle that provides for lower engine rpms during highway cruising.
