Default EBAY 1929 Oval Window Coupe

1929 Ford Model A Business Coupe Opera

Oval windows look too small to me.

That's a Sport coupe someone tried to pass off as a business coupe.

Window frames should be 9" x 14'.

I see this has a rumble seat as well. Wouldn't a trunk be more practical for a business coupe?

It looks like the interior, top, curved quarter bracket's are unique to the Business Coupe but as others have pointed out the oval windows aren't correct. The rear window is also too large for the Business Coupe. The back of the top also doesn't open on a Business Coupe. Also correct, the Business Coupe did not come with a rumble seat.

I don't think it's a sport coupe. The photo of the interior side of the oval window seems to show the correct metal straps for the business coupe, not the sport coupe. Maybe someone more familiar with the oval window coupe can take a closer look and confirm this.

I don’t think anyone should pick on someone car!!! But if a dealer is selling a clone as a correct car and miss representing a perspective buyer I believe people are just trying to help.

Soft top coupes have been getting hash for years..hotrodders hate them,restorers spend big money on a top that doesnt go down.They don't carry half the price of a 5 window coupe unrestored..Put on a top without padding it doesn't look right,overpad it it looks like a fat head..'the dash of an open car with the comfort of a closed one" by 1932 they were done,ford made less than 5000 of them..yes I own one, a '29..best top I ever saw on one right here..


go ahead and laugh,but that's some fine tin work..imagine there's some wet chickens somewhere,wishing they had a coop roof..

Reminds me of a unrestored roadster I saw years ago, where someone had plastered with concrete over the whole soft top. Looked great from a distance until you realised what it was. They had even painted landau irons on it!
