1928 Ford Model A 2-Door Sedan
Sure, for any true car enthusiast, the mere sight of an antique car nine decades old that's made it through the years is a happy one, but this 1928 Ford Model A 2 Door Sedan takes that happiness to a much higher level. This charming call back to the formative years of the auto industry has received a skillful and thorough restoration both inside and out and carries the documentation to prove it. It runs and drives impressively well and, as far as vintage curb appeal is concerned, it stands in very rare company. This 1928's two-tone color scheme - where the dark blue of the running boards and fenders gives way to the almost sky blue surrounding the cabin - is in keeping with the stylistic sensibilities of the time it debuted, but owing to improved technology over the years, there's a vitality and shine on display here that would have been out of reach in that era. Even among meticulously painted classics, this job stands out - a lot of prepping obviously went into the process and once it was finished, this antique has been well-protected so it shines like a diamond in the sun. The contrasting dark blue cloth roof looks as if it's yet to have seen any exposure to the sun, while up front the signature Ford grille is at its best. In back, the tan trunk mounted over the rear bumper is another outstanding detail on a car that certainly has no shortage of them. Inside the cabin, the blue cloth interior has been updated to enhance driving comfort while still retaining a great vintage look. Like the exterior, it's been very well preserved - you'll find little to no wear on the surfaces of the blue cloth seating and matching door panels. Here, too, the work was done with obvious precision - the stitching is solid and consistent and the covers on both the front buckets and rear bench seat fit like gloves. The functionality on hand inside the cabin is truly impressive - the gauges residing in the diamond shaped instrument panel on the two-tone colored dash work as intended, as do the adjacent control knobs and both look to be in very good condition. Situated over the full-size spare in back, the trunk not only adds visual appeal but also provides welcome storage space when you take this classic of classics out on the road. You'll find no compromises under the sections of the folding hood, where the original 201ci flathead 4-cylinder holds court in a bay that has a "scoured clean" look to it. The surfaces of the engine, as well as the walls that surround it, are immaculate. The vintage powerplant teams with the original 3-speed manual transmission to form a drivetrain that jumps into service promptly and runs surprisingly smooth. There's no need to worry that the engine's early 1900's construction will relegate this car to that of a mere display piece - it will run just fine on unleaded gas. The electrical system has also been upgraded to 12volt to increase reliability. Truly a sight to behold, this important piece of automotive history rolls on its set of meticulously painted spoked wheels outfitted with beautiful 4.4/4.5x21 white wall tires. You may see an antique car tooling down the road now and then, but there are very few that sport the attention to detail and strong running condition of this 1928 Ford Model A 2 Door Sedan.
