Sporty Coupe

The car is, indeed, a sport coupe but it is not the rumble seat that differentiates it from the more pedestrian offerings from FoMoCo. It is the soft, non-folding, top. Buyers with a few more dollars to spend could have spiffed it up with, non-functional, landau irons. BTW, rumble seats were available on all Model A coupes and roadsters, whether standard or deluxe versions

And the Car Is ...

A 1928 Model A Ford Coupe, probably a Sport Coupe since it has a rumble seat (see step-on fender).
