The Ford Model A was produced between 1927 and 1931. It was also
colloquially called the A-Model Ford or A-bone among rodders and
customisers and replaced the venerable Model T which had been
produced for 18 years. This new Model A (a previous model had used
the name in 1903-1904) was designated as a 1928 model and was
available in four standard colours. By 4th February. 1929. one
million Model A's had been sold and by 24th July. two million. The
range of body styles ran from the Tudor (two-door) at US$500 to the
Town Car with a dual cowl at US$1. 00. By March 1930. Model A sales
hit three million and there were nine body styles available. When
production ended in March 1932. there were 4. 49. 40 Model A's
built. It was the first Ford to use the standard set of driver
controls with conventional clutch and brake pedals. throttle and
gearshift. The Model A's gravity fuel tank was located in the cowl. br/>between the engine compartment's fire wall and the dash panel and a
rear view mirror was optional.
This magnificent and imposing version of Henry Ford's ground
breaking Model A was originally shipped. in chassis form. to
Scandinavia. hence the KPH speedometer and now presents beautifully
and has been owned by the vendor for almost 28 years and restored
from the ground up nearly 23 years ago. The colour scheme is the
period-correct combination of Moroccan Maroon and Tacoma Cream with
genuine wide whitewall tyres. It comes with carefully hidden
indicators (fitted into the headlights and tail lights) together
with hazard warning feature and recent works include a new water
pump and gear shift tower. It also benefits from a battery cut-off
switch mounted on the battery (located under the floor on the
driver's side of the car) and a secondary fuel cut-off valve. This
immaculate example has won numerous 1st prizes and 'Best in Show'
awards over the years and was an Autoglym Regional Finalist being
invited to display at the NEC where it was said that if there were
an award for 'Character' it would have won hands down! Complete
with an MoT test certificate valid until June 2016. it's now time
to get your Homburg and your Thompson sub-machine gun
(decommissioned. of course) and relive the 'Bonnie and Clyde'
