This is an exceptional example of an older restoration of a 1929 Ford Model A Roadster. How often is a Ford Model A part of two important collections of classic cars? This Model A Roadster was restored by one of San Diego's top collectors of classic cars, Chuck Swimmer. Chuck had several top award winning motorcars at venues such as the Pebble Beach Concours. This was his Model A that was part of his collection. Mr. Swimmer loaded this roadster with as many accessories as possible, using whenever possible authentic pieces rather than reproduction. Money was not an object. After Mr. Swimmers passing, the car was sold to another major collector, Bill Habeger, also of San Diego. Mr. Habeger wanted to ensure that he had a fine example of a Model A that could be enjoyed on AACA and other tours. After several years, he sold the car to Pedro Meyer of our San Marcos showroom. While the restoration is showing the slightest patina, it still looks fantastic and is one of the nicest around. It has accumulated a total of 533 miles since restoration. If you are looking for a quality example to add to your collection, and you want one that can be driven and enjoyed, this could be it!

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.
‘I’m a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer…”
Often a popular car to turn into a classic hot rod, the 1930 Ford Model A was created to help Ford maintain a strong presence in the market during a time when other cars began to be more affordable and practical.
