For Sale: 1929 Ford Model A in Marietta, Georgia

Vehicle Description

For years, Model A fans have complained about how most newer restorations are "over-done" and "over-accessorized," and they're probably right. These were working-class cars that were affordable and stylish, but still available to the regular guy. This lovely 1929 Ford sedan is not only a rather unusual body style, but has a comfortable, used appearance that represents the way Model As looked, say, back when they were still being used as real cars.
Basic black was, of course, Henry Ford's favorite color, but other colors were available, including the handsome green shown here. Ford was building hundreds of thousands of Model As, and the books show that more than 240,000 2-door sedans were built in 1929, making it the most popular model by far. The paint is quite old, and the black fenders in particular are showing quite a bit of wear, but the car really does have an honest, no-nonsense look that we like a lot. For Ford fans, it's worth noting that this car isn't over-dressed, using a proper single-stage paint that more closely approximates the lacquer that was originally used. Contrasting light yellow on the belt moldings adds a subtle touch that was entirely Edsel Ford's doing, making the A attractive as well functional. A single rear-mounted spare is a refreshing choice, and the rear-mounted trunk makes this car a practical tour choice, too. The plated grille is in decent condition for driving and the long-grain vinyl top is still in great shape.
The upholstery isn't quite exact, but it is attractive inside the sedan. More upscale than you'd expect, it has a comfortable 1920s look and details like the shiny door hardware, map pockets in the doors, and attractive garnish moldings add to the upscale look. The A's usual single instrument panel with basic gauges remains the highlight of the interior.
The 200 cubic inch inline-four is believed to be this car's original engine and it's surprisingly energetic in the lightweight little sedan. It's got proper green paint, although a proper detailing would really make it shine. The 3-speed manual transmission requires a light touch and a quick double-clutch to grab gears, something you'll quickly master with the A's easy-going nature, and the chassis is in good shape for a driver-grade car with no notable issues. Freshly painted 21-inch wire wheels look right and carry skinny Universal whitewall tires, which add the right bit of seriousness to the simple little Ford. It looks great!
Not a show car and it doesn't seem to mind, this is a charming Model A that's closer to the original intent than most of them out there. Call today!
