To this day, the Ford Model A is one of the most recognizable cars on the planet and with over 4.8 million units produced in nine different body styles in its 4 year production period. It was sporty, attractive, well-built, and smooth-running compared to the Model T, which it replaced in the 1928 model year. Thousands of people were eager to see for themselves that "Henry's made a lady out of Lizzie," and they stormed Ford showrooms when the Model A debuted on December 2, 1927. In less than two weeks there were 400,000 orders, and Henry Ford could not keep up with the demand for his latest "gift" to an increasingly mobile nation. Despite the onset of the Depression, Model A production remained strong at 1,261,053 cars in 1930 but fell to 626,579 cars in 1931, the last year that the Model A was produced.
The 1929 Model A Tudor offered here is the recipient of an older restoration but shows well. The car received new radiator hoses, leakless water pump, head gasket and head studs, spark plugs, manifold gasket, valve springs, vavle set, valve guide set, manifold, wire harness, alternator, oil pan gasket, tires and tubes, radiator. There are over $1,900 worth of receipts reflecting this. The car was stripped and painted in 2000 by Sessler's Automotive in Manassas,VA and has receipts showiing $6,000 worth of work. The paint is starting to show its age here and there but is very presentable over all. The 4 cylinder engine fires to life with ease and holds the road as it should. The brakes function very well. This is a great driver and is ready for its next owner.
