In the late 1920s and early 1930s, the Ford Model A was one of the
most publicized and best-selling cars in America. 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 "Henry's 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.
