Fun Car. Fun car to drive. The neighborhood kids love going for rides. Original car. Starts right up. I bought this car about 5 years ago with every intention of fully restoring it. Shortly after purchase, I took ill. I'd love to see someone else have the chance to bring this beauty back. Upholstery shows its age but is in very serviceable condition.
This car has an original Model A 4 cylinder engine. Metal work looks is in reasonable shape. Straight and no dings that I find. Could become a very nice street rod if that is your pleasure. I am a restore to original type of driver. Either way I am good to go. For 2 years I have been only trying to start the car about once a month but doing very little driving.

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.
