Think about what a big deal the Model A was when it hit the streets in 1928. With the look of a baby Lincoln, 4-wheel brakes, and lively performance, it was everything the Model T was not, and every bit as durable. Today, cars like this 1928 Model A roadster are fantastic collectables whether youre just starting out or have a massive collection already. This Model A has the kind of story you want to tell. A decade ago this was a sedan that belonged to a WWII veteran. He sold it to the next owner who saw huge potential in the chassis. So a new roadster body was built, and this vintage Ford was given a complete restoration/rebirth.The unusual colors on this A are bright and cheerful, combining cream with green to highlight the details. On the stylish little roadster bodywork, they look fantastic and theyll help this one stand out at shows, where so many of them will be black or dark green. Fit and finish are extremely good, and its quite likely that no Model A was this nice coming out of Dearborn in 1928. Note that as an open car, there are no exterior door handles, a sure-fire way to identify an early 1928 model, and the chrome windshield frame identifies it as a deluxe roadster. The detailing is quite correct, from the accessory bumpers to the single early-style drum taillight to the cover for the rear-mounted spare. Other upgrades include chrome instead of nickel on the radiator shell and headlight buckets, a Boyce moto-meter, and one-piece splash aprons that give it a smoother look. The interior is correctly restored in brown leatherette, which was Fords version of weatherproof vinyl. The Model A is simplicity itself with no unnecessary components, but somehow they managed to make it stylish as well as functional. The interior is cozy for two, offering plain door panels and a simple dashboard thats also the cowl-mounted fuel tank. The instrument panel offers only the basics, and there is no windshield wiper, but what else do you expect on a car without any windows? A reproduction rubber mat covers the wooden floorboards, and the beautiful steering wheel is correct for the earliest Model As. The black canvas top folds easily giving the roadster a sporty look, and two can squeeze into the rumble seat out back, which is finished in matching brown leatherette. The torquey little four cylinder engine is simply a delightful machine. Reliable and tough, it over-performs given its modest specifications, happy to trundle around town with a minimum of shifting thanks to its prodigious torque output and yet still capable of running all day at 45-50 MPH. The engine features a high-compression head for a bit more performance, and given the reliability of these cars and the vast network of parts suppliers out there, it should be easy to maintain and will run virtually forever. It has been upgraded with a 6-volt alternator but still runs the original updraft carburetor and distributor with flat copper plug leads. The Mitchell manual transmission features Synchromesh, so its a joy to shift and the factory suspension and brakes make it fun out on the road. The chassis is highly detailed thanks to the fresh restoration and the reproduction exhaust offers that familiar Model A sound. Correct 21-inch welded wire wheels wear reproduction 4.50-21 blackwalls that look exactly right on the modest Model A. The charm is undeniable, both in looks and on-road performance. If youre a car guy, you owe it to yourself to own a Model A at least once in your life and this is an excellent one. Call today!
This neat little 1928 Ford Model A tudor sedan is one of those great old cars that dont ask you to make any sacrifices to enjoy them. With lots of smart upgrades aimed at making it a reliable and fun tour car, it retains all the Model As charm and simply upgrades all the areas where the As were a little weak. The first thing most folks notice on this handsome tudor sedan are the colors, which are a fairly correct representation of the original two-tone green combination offered in 1928. Its bright, sophisticated, and with contrasting black fenders, very stylish. The restoration is a few years old and given the driving modifications under the skin, its safe to say that its been driven and enjoyed, but overall it has a very pleasant, complete look that works quite well. Its a Deluxe model, which included dual taillights, but other welcome additions include the wind wings, twin side mirrors, and a spare tire cover that gives it an upscale look. The doors fit well and in the interest of keeping everything safe, new headlights were installed up front. The fenders could probably benefit from a buff, but on the other hand this is a car that you can hit the road without worries, so perhaps it might be best to just leave it as-is. Either way, you wont be disappointed with how it goes down the road. Inside, the upholstery is pretty correct for 1928, featuring gray mohair on factory bucket seats that still feel comfortable on long tours. Theyre a lot more supportive than youd think, and the classic patterns make it look very authentic. The familiar controls are all there, joined by a 1928-only red rubber steering wheel and matching shift knob. The back seat is spacious and the painted garnish moldings and dashboard surround give the modest Model A an upscale feel. Theres also a new windshield wiper motor, so it works properly unlike so many Model As you see these days. Nicely fitted carpets with a heel pad for the driver help control noise and heat and up top theres a nice-fitting long-grain vinyl roof that seals up well and looks great. Mechanically, the 200 cubic inch inline-four that made the Model A famous is still in place, and much of the mechanical hardware has been freshened quite recently. Of course, the multiple upgrades also help with reliability, and with that in mind the engine was treated to a 6-volt alternator in place of the original Powerhouse generator, a new wiring harness, fresh distributor, cleaned fuel tank, and a new radiator, water pump, and hoses. It starts with vigor but still has that classic Model A sound, and thanks to a 3-speed manual transmission and standard banjo-style rear end, it feels quite authentic going down the road. The chassis is augmented with rebuilt brakes, a new exhaust system, and powder-coated 21-inch wire wheels with correctly-sized 21-inch blackwall tires A classic Model A with its soul intact and just a few upgrades to enhance the driving experience. If thats your kind of fun, this Model A deserves a closer look. Call now!

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 "Henrys 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.GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this nice 1928 Model A for your consideration.

The car starts up right away after going through the correct starting procedure and runs very well. It is a solid runner and is more than happy to go down the road at 45mph.

These Model As are unique in the way that they are still happy to drive on todays roads but still have that unique pre war charm that is hard to find anywhere else!
1928 Ford Model A Roadster History During the mid 1920s Ford realized their competitors had caught on to the idea of assembly line mass production and had to move forward from the Model T design. This was especially true by offering more powerful engines, new convenience features, or cosmetic options. Also, features Henry Ford considered to be unnecessary, such as electric starters were gradually shifting in the publics perception from luxuries to essentials. Ford realized his new design had to move some of his manufacturing theories from Design for Manufacturing, to Flexible Mass Production, and what would be the successful run of the model A began.

1928 Ford Model A Tudor sedan. The original drivetrain runs great with the 4 cylinder motor that fires right up and 3 speed manual transmission that works like it is still 1928. The interior has been done in red and is in good shape. All of the doors and windows are good. I have added turn signals and an extra brake light to this car to increase safety under modern driving conditions. I also added extra gauges for oil pressure and temperature to better monitor the motor while driving. All 6 tires and wheels are in excellent condition with only a couple hundred miles on the tires. This car looks great sitting still with its glossy black paint and yellow wheels but it really shines when you are driving, the steering and brakes work better than I thought possible on a vehicle of this age. Overall this is an excellent car in great shape and ready for the road.
