Description:

1928 Ford Model A

The Model A is pace setter for the modern car. It started 4-wheel brakes, safety glass, gear driven transmission, ..... and the list goes on. Many survive to today. It has lasted longer than most people would live! There is a cottage industry cranking out reproduction parts.
This is a desirable Deluxe Sports Coupe (noted by color wire wheels.) Itwas restored a few years back with reproduction wood, new grill shell, new soft top, upholstery etc. As it had been stored inside most of its life, the metal is sound, as can be seen in the pictures. It is quite presentable, and makes a nice Sunday driver or a parade car with the Rumble Seat for 2. Most of all, it is so cool and such a fun car to drive. Registration has been current for decades. It has 12 V conversion for convenience use of modern parts. Recent safety updates include halogen head lights, seat belt, right rear mirror, electric windshield wiper, second tail/brake lights and turn signals. It has a new battery, alternator, and ignition components. It looks, steers, sounds, runs and stops as it should. It's like going back in time to cruise along, getting looks, smiles, honks and waves along the way. It is as good as a Model A gets.
Low value is 8k for a project, to a high value well over 20k. Reserve is low, close to low value. (Leaks a few drops from the pan, may need a gasket at some point.) In my opinion, and maybe yours, this car iswell above average condition. You may or may not get a project for less, and would end up spending more later. Classics should be fun, not work. If you haven't owned an "A" before, this is your opportunity. Don't let this one be "the fish that got away." It is ready to drive and enjoy.
If you can wait, list your transport bid for 500 on uShip for last minute trailer space. Secure storage up to 30 days is provided to high bidder as a courtesy.
