This is a 1929 Model A Roadster. This vehicle was built in September of 1929. It underwent a frame off restored in 1993. Approximately a couple of years later the vehicle was placed in storage in an open walled pole barn. Although it was covered with car cover it suffered some weather wear and tear. I obtained the vehicle in 2014. I brought the vehicle back to where it is today. The car had to be taken apart, cleaned and put back together. I replaced the wiring, rebuilt the water pump, replaced the cooling fan with an aluminum one piece unit, replaced all the brake components and upgraded to cast iron drums, and added an alternator. I have also installed hydraulic shocks on the front and rear.
This is a very nice Model A roadster(convertible). Roadsters are hard to find and especially one this nice.
The only reason I am selling this vehicle is that my wife and i are in the process of downsizing and planning to do some traveling.

Once again, the Hagerty crew has created a drivable automobile in just 100 hours and sourced completely from the piles of used parts at the Hershey Swap Meet.
The idea of Hagerty’s Swap to Street Challenge sprouted from a simple concept often heard at the Hershey Swap Meet, that you could build an entire car from the used parts.
