Beer, I am 220, 5'10 or so, and don't feel cramped in my 30 roadster.  Had a 30 tudor as well, no issues except feet catching on entry, exit, nature of these early cars.  30, 31 might give you more space, and tudors have an adjustable seat. 

 

Avoid pick ups, esp. 28, 29 at your size.

 

BTW, easier to source parts for than those Franklins your discussing on main forum. 

 

Andy's cars above look impressive, I believe he may have a roadster or two in stock as well.  Glad you are back to actively looking!

 

Good luck on your search!

How well does a 6 ft tall, 225 pound guy fit in the standard model A ?

 

BB, I am bigger than you and can fit in any Model A. Even the 28-29 trucks. But they are a little tight. Plenty of room in sedans. More information at www.petersmotorcars.com Thanks for looking, Andy

When you do the math on restoring an average A, these are very fairly priced, nice selection ready to enjoy.  End of lockdown is coming...

 

I could not have said it better myself.

Brass is best. I can't imagine crossley much better. I'm just glad that I would be considered the average height for back in the late twenties or early thirties. At 5ft 9.  I actually have a 1930 Austin here that we're restoring. A buddy of mine has come to help with the restoration about 6 ft tall. He didn't think he'd fit in it. After the initial getting into the car he realized it was pretty roomy for what it is. Was able to drive around a little bit before we tore it apart. He was amazed at how comfortable it was the drive.
