1929 Ford Model A
The Ford Model A can be found in many iterations: coupe, to a
roadster, to a sedan to a pickup. Henry Ford had a solid base in
the Model A and appeased the masses with various options on that
frame. Also, as with many older versions of cars, so many visual
customization modifications have been done, that the original
showroom look has been long gone. In the case of this car though,
mostly original intent as well as actual visual parts to this
build, have been retained.
For consignment a 1929 Fordor Sedan which went through a
restoration about 40 years ago and is now showing some wear and
tear. It will need a little TLC to get it back to very nice, but
everything is there to do so.
Green steel panels are straight and show slight rusting but have
patina and some scratching. Straw wheels were sandblasted, and
powder coated (including spare) present with new lug nuts and
hubcaps and are wrapped with new Firestone wide whitewall tires and
new tubes. Running boards connect the front and rear fenders that
are covered in black, and the boards have a Ford step plate
installed. These show the same as the body with some scratches. 2
standard headlights flank a chromed radiator surround, with a black
grille. Chromed bumpers in original style, are adding bling to
either end of the car, and showing areas of rust and pitting,
particularly on the rear of this car. There is a large trunk
attached in front of the spare, and the brackets that support the
trunk show significant surface rust. A single taillight brings up
the rear. The front windshield can be pushed out for a nice flow of
air as you are motoring through the city. At the time of the
restoration a textured top was installed, and a sun visor is seen
above the windscreen on the exterior.
Yards of YooHoo (Light brown) Mohair cover the front bench which
has been relocated backwards 2 inches. Door panels, and rear bench
seat sport this same Mohair fabric, and the doors offer expandable
pockets for storage. A felt headliner stretched from front to rear,
and door to door is in excellent condition. Rebuilt floors covered
with new brown carpet which shows some wear and floods the floor. A
green dash, and a front metal panel to this dash painted black,
houses the Ford chromed instrument cluster in the center. Within
this cluster are a gas gauge, amp gauge, ignition and
The inline 4 cylinder weighing in at 210ci, a 1-barrel carburetor,
and 3-speed manual transmission are showing surface rust, and not
original but plenty of cosmetic work to do here under the hood.
An older restoration, now in need of an upgrade to get it to
perfection. Car runs and has had some recent maintenance.
