Can it/Should it be Saved? – 1930 Ford Model A 5-Window Coupe

This 1930 Model A is described as a barn fresh find out of 40 years of storage. The paint is claimed to be original and it is definitely aged. The body is said to be free of rust damage outside of the obvious surface rust. This is a very popular body style so it may already be on the radar of the hot rod/street rod/rat rod crowds.

Unfortunately the trunk lid is no longer with the car, but the challenge of sourcing an original paint replacement might be fun and rewarding (or very frustrating).

The interior is also aged and looks to have a seat cover on the front seat. This car begs the question of what should become of it. If the paint is original, recommissioning and preserving the car would be the default position of this website. However, some may look at this car as an ideal base for a ground up restoration. Find it here on eBay in Hanston Kansas where it will sell as there is no reserve.
