1930 Model A
The first model A’s were sold in December of 1927 as 1928 models. They followed the Model T, which had been produced for 18 years with ground breaking assembly line production. The Model A came in 9 different body styles, ranging from the two door coupes and convertibles to the four door Tudor. ln particular, they came in variety of color combinations, unlike their predecessor, whose only color choice was black. The last of the Model A’s came off the Ford assembly lines in March of 1932. By that time over 4.8 million cars had been sold! Over 80 years later there are estimated to be over 250,000 Model A’s still traveling the roadways of America.
This particular model is the business coupe. She is completely original, painted in period correct Kewannee Green and Elkpointe green with Apple Green lacquer paint for the pinstripes and wheels. The business coupe has a two passenger cabin with a rumble seat. Purchased by Foster Classic Cars in 2014, she is currently in the middle of a bare metal repaint. New chrome, floorboards, and a complete engine detail have already been completed. Look for pictures of the completed restoration soon.
