The Model A was completely taken apart and restored from the ground
up, inside and out. It is a really good looker. The interior is
much more luxurious than you would expect. It runs like a champ,
has a rare overdrive.
EXTERIOR: It is all metal body and fenders with no signs rust or
damage showing. The doors don't drop, all 4 close like a new car.
It has a very glossy 3 tone paint job with an orange pin stripe.
The welting was replaced between the body and fenders. The
windshield swings out, has metal visor. Upfront it has new chrome
bumpers, new grill steel and stone gaurd. New chrome headlights
with Ford script glass lenses. The vinyl top insert looks new. The
running boards have been recovered, has new trim around them and
optional step plates. In back it has original style tail lights,
the bumperettes look new. It has a 5th matching restored wire wheel
and white wall. It has an optional trunk rack. The glass looks like
it is all new and the felt channels they slide in. The wheels are
restored, new caps, lug nuts and valve stem covers. The
reproduction Firestone whitewalls look new.
INTERIOR: Wow, I thought I was looking in a Cadillac, it is very
luxurious. It is completely redone from floor to ceiling.
Reupholstered seats and door panels. The headliner is new. It has
three pull down shades back with tassels, they are all new. It has
new handle straps. All the welting around the doors is new. It has
a working dome light. On the floor it has the correct short loop
carpet with bound edges. The ornate handles are all new and
matching. The faux woodgrain is all redone. It also has a bevelled
mirror and a swirled shift ball. Dash is painted nice. Instrument
panel and steering wheel looks good.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Every component looks like it was apart and
restored. This motor runs great, it will idle down to a put-put.
The water pump, hoses, clamps look proper. The generator, belt,
wires look good. There isn't anything that looks old and crusty.
The vin # stamped on the motor matches the car.
UNDERSIDE: It was also all apart for restoration. All the nuts,
bolds and harware look replaced on the front steering and
suspension. It has been recently greased. Looking up at the motor
it looks new, the oil pan bolts are not painted over. The 3-speed
trans also looks fresh, all the harware was apart. It has a very
