VEHICLE DESCRIPTION:

VEHICLE HISTORY: The current owner inherited this partially restored Model A from his father in 1999. It was completely disassembled down to the bare frame, he bodywork was painted, nd there were boxes of almost everything else needed to complete the restoration. He lovingly finished the restoration over the next 3 years, nd had it on the road by 2002. In the last 13 years he has driven it only 1300 miles, hown it locally many times, nd enjoyed this father’s pride and joy. It was stored winters, nd is in beautiful condition considering the years since the restoration. It has been obviously loved, nd well taken care of. Their life is changing, nd no time to enjoy the Model A, o this beautiful Roadster is ready for the next owner to drive, how, nd enjoy!

The engine was rebuilt at Hart’s Machine Service, he oldest and most experienced engine shop in the area. They have rebuilt hundreds of Model A engines and offer many updates that were taken advantage of during the rebuild (see below). http://www.hartsmachineservice.com/home.html Further vehicle upgrades and accessories are listed below.

MARQUE HISTORY: Henry Ford’s successful replacement for the Model T, he Model A continued the Model T’s legacy to put America on Wheels from 1928 to 1931. The Model A was given a substantial face lift for 1930. Larger 4.75 tires on smaller 19” wheels resulted in an overall height reduction which along with wider fenders, deeper radiator shell, nd the elimination of the cowl stanchion were all contributors to the 1930 Model A’s fresh new look. Over 4.8 million Model As were produced between 1928 and 1931. For 1930 there were many body styles available and the Deluxe Roadster was introduced. Only 11,318 Deluxe Roadsters were produced for 1930 with a base price of $495.
