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 sidevalve engine producing 40bhp - 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 upon the V8's arrival in 1932 saw Ford's four-cylinder car renamed 'Model B'.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This lovely Light Grey over Dark fendered example of the elegant Sport Coupe Model A appears to have been treated to a restoration some years ago. Its dark interior compliments the exterior and the classic style is emphasized by the characteristic rumble seat and neatly contrasting 'cigarette cream' colored spoke wheels. A delight to drive, easy to maintain, and backed by an active and enjoyable group of enthusiast clubs, the Ford Model A continues to be one of perennial favorites of the motoring hobby.
