THE FORD MODEL A

Replacement for the ubiquitous Model T, the Model A went on sale in December 1927. A more complex car than its predecessor, the 'A' was also more powerful, its four-cylinder side valve engine producing 40hp - double the output of the T - which was good enough for a top speed of 65mph. A three-speed sliding gear transmission replaced the T's planetary gears, there was coil-and-battery instead of magneto ignition and at last there was a brake for each wheel. The T's ungainly styling was abandoned, and the eagerly awaited Model A's up-to-the-minute looks, choice of colors and, needless to say, competitive pricing, helped ensure its success. Ford priced the new Model A at just $450 and although only on sale for a short four years, would go to build 4.8 million cars despite the prevailing economic gloom, outselling Chevrolet 2-to-l in 1929/30. Production ceased the V8's arrival in 1932 and Ford's four-cylinder car was then renamed 'Model B'.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Model A's early history is not known. Model As come in all shapes and sizes and one of the most popular variants was the Huckster truck. Many working men needed utility and solid dependable vehicles for work and delivery services. In this role, the Model A thrived.

This particular huckster was restored in the late 1970's. It was purchased by the consignor in 1982 and has lived a sheltered life since. The car was driven on weekends for many years, until 4 years ago, when it was put into storage.

A great way to start enjoying the classic car hobby and a truly charming car. Showing well with nice woodwork on the body, and an attractive green paintwork. It would be as at home helping with family chores, or as a great grocery getter at the weekend farmers market.
