  • Who knows about the Sport Coupe?

    Now, when I was younger, my first A was a '30 Sport Coupe, but all I really remember about it was it had some vinyl seat cover material for a roof.

    Today I was working on an Aug '28 Sport Coupe and noticed something I had not remembered about my first one. It seems that the "Special Coupe" wasn't the only model to have a removable beltline. Can any of you out there in Model A land have a '28 Sport Coupe and corroborate this finding? Now, I know it's a '28 and a Sport Coupe because of the tank date and lack of roof metal, so humor me folk.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

    Yes. The 28-29 Sport Coupe, Special Coupe and Business Coupe all have the same belt rail moulding. Rod

    That moulding is hard to find in useable condition. There was a guy reproducing them several years ago when I restored a 29 sport coupe, but I do not think they are still available.

      I like your paint. What colors are they? I have a 28 sport coupe it's Washington blue a 1930-31 color and want to do an authentic restoration, so I know I will have to choose a new color. I'm not certain that I like the black wheels. That could be a problem for me.

      Barry made one for his special coupe from brass counter edgeing, and bondo over the screws and paint and it looked quite good.
