"Classic Rumble Seat Roadster"

The Ford Model T had dominated the automotive market from the mid-1910's through the early 1920's but started to erode as competitors began catching up with Fords successful mass production system. It had become apparent to most in the company that it was time to begin a new model, but Henry Ford was resistant. With “luxury” features coming out such as electric starters in most of General Motors products, newer exterior designs fit to the era they were entering, Ford was forced to compete and began their Model-A design. At first, Henry did not want to worry about looks or features but to spend their energy on the mechanical aspects which had been the primary reason for success on their Model T. Although many improvements with the engine power and overall stability were improved, it proved to be short of what was necessary, a new cosmetic appeal. For this Henry called upon his son, Edsel, who showed how successful it could be with his design. After years of compliments on its curb appeal, Henry started to take credit for it himself although his son was clearly more hands on with this project. The era of mass production had officially passed and the era of “flexible mass production” had begun and regardless of who was more responsible for this model, Ford in general showed once again how well they could adapt and stay on top.


GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1929 Ford Model A rumble seat roadster for your consideration. It is covered in a stunning shade of ruby red and fenders are plum as are the body linings. The overall appearance of this roadster is beautiful and shows very well. The car rides on 21 inch wire wheels that are painted in a dark shade of plum red. White wall tires accent the look of the car very well. The interior is finished in ruby red cloth. The black convertible top shows well. The roadster features the famous “rumble seat” allowing room for passengers. The chrome and bright work show well. The 4 cylinder engine runs smoothly and is mated to its 3 speed manual transmission. This car goes up and down the road as it should.
