Default Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

When the Model As came out, the Sport Coupes were in very big demand and especially with folks that could afford better cars. Dealers were promising them to the famous and well to do. The "new" sort of wore off of them in late 1929. The Cabriolet might have had something to do with that but the depression was likely the rest of the story.

It was sort of like what happened when the Mustangs first came out in mid 1964. I own a Sport Coupe and they are a fun little car but not something I'd pay that much for especially when it's been restomoded that much.
