Classic Car Overview

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!
