For Sale: 1980 Ford Model A in Raleigh, North Carolina


Vehicle Description


 Harry Shay's effort to provide the nostalgic looks of the Model A Ford roadster with the ease of a late-model car. Now, however, even commonplace cars of the Shay's 1978-'82 era (and its successor, by Camelot Motors) are open to consideration as something more than just transportation. As such, one can consider the Shay as a contemporary to the Pinto and Fairmont on which it was based, rather than in the context of its 1920s inspiration. Take into account its approximately 5,000-unit production run and it's even something of a rarity.

Slightly more complex than the original Model A under the cowls, now mounted is an overhead cam 4-cylinder engine 140 cubes with 88 HP from the Ford Pinto. A very recognizable setup for any mechanic, now much easier to have worked on if a problem should arise. This car is also equipped with a FOG 4 speed manual transmission, and a 7.5 inch rear axle.
