For Sale: 1930 Ford Model A in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is excited to offer this super nice Kewanee Green 1930 Ford Model A for sale. When the Model A was introduced, it likely seemed impossible for Henry Ford to follow up the commercial success of the Model T. However, he would immediately hit another home run with the Model A. While the Model T was produced for the explicit purpose of making the motorcar accessible to everyone, the Model A would be Ford's attempt at combining mass production with exclusivity. The Model A was a hit with the public: the marriage of aesthetics and mass production has seemed to work for both Ford and its customers, as one million examples would be built by February of 1929. By July 1930, just a few months later, production would top two million. Ultimately, by the time the Model A was replaced by the Model B and production ended in early 1932, nearly five million Model As would roll off the Ford assembly lines. This clean Model A is powered by a 200 CID inline 4-cylinder engine backed by a 3-speed manual transmission. The restoration plan for this 1930 Ford Model A included having the objective of making it a capable tourer (albeit "at Model A speeds"), and initial impressions indicate that it succeeded! This all-steel Model A didn't need much when it was being restored - just a few areas in the kick panels (in front of the front doors) had some rust in the metal, so they were cut out and replaced with fresh steel. The Kewanee Green paint looks good, the black fenders really add some contrasting "pop" to the package, and the chrome is bright and shiny. This Model A rolls on a set of original steel wire wheels that are painted black to coordinate with the fenders, and the blackwall bias ply tires provide that "vintage correct" correct look. The seating surfaces are covered in a nice two-toned brown fabric that feels both soft and durable at the same time and goes well with the brown headliner. This great '30 Ford Model A is one that you're bound to enjoy the attention it will get at shows, as well as having fun putting it in your neighborhood car parades. This 1930 Ford Model A comes complete with Bias Ply Touring Tires, Cloth Interior, Seat Belts, Spare Tire and Jack, and Wire Wheels.
