This nice old 1928 Ford A has been sitting quietly in a garage in Napa, California since 1983 and is in remarkably good condition with only a small spot on the front seat.
This car starts very easily and runs good.
The doors close well, the windows operate easily and the car drives good.
The first Fordor Sedan offered on the Ford Model A chassis was the so-called "Leatherback" model, with a "two-window" roof line without rear quarter windows, covered in pebble-grain artificial leather. Promoted by Ford as the Fordor Sedan, it was intended to be a more comfortable Model A, and emphasis was placed upon the luxuriousness and quality of its interior fittings. Bodies of this style were produced by Briggs, in a leased corner of the Highland Park Ford plant, and became available in mid-May 1928. The design continued into 1929, after which a "three-window" design was adopted for future Model A Fordors.
