For Sale: 1980 Ford Model A in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is pleased to offer this classic green 1980 Shay Roadster, a replica of the 1929 Ford Model A. The Shay Model A is a factory-built replica authorized by the Ford Motor Company, originally sold through Ford dealerships and backed by a Ford 12,000-mile / one-year new car warranty (which, on this car, expired in 1981). Faithful in appearance to the 1929 Model A, it featured a reproduction fiberglass body, modern chassis and a drivetrain with much better driving dynamics than the original. Paint, body, chrome, wheels and glass are in good condition, as is the convertible top. Under the hood is Ford's 88 HP 2.3 liter overhead cam four cylinder mated to a four-speed manual transmission (considerably more advanced than the Model A's flathead four-cylinder mated to a three-speed non-synchronized gearbox). Paired with rack-and-pinion steering, independent front suspension and front disk brakes, the result is car that can cruise at highway speeds. The power delivery, steering, braking and overall handling are significantly improved over the original Model A. A Shay Roadster is a great choice for the buyer who appreciates the classic styling of a Model A but wants a more modern driving experience. Additional features on this 1980 Shay Roadster include AM/FM/Cassette radio (not working, but present), Spare tires, Wide White Wall Tires, Wire Wheels, and Vinyl Interior.
