Highly correct, well-coordinated, and driver-ready are all the
first impressions you get from this 1929 Ford Model A Phaeton. And
as you dig into the details, you'll find a father and son story
that has kept this restored classic for nearly 60 years. It makes
for a car with true rarity and the best details.
This has been under the same family care since 1964. Let that sink
in for a moment... This car is rapidly approaching the century
mark, and it has spent more than half of that time with just the
father and son! The look on this one is highly correct where Rose
Beige is used for the main body, and black is interwoven with the
fenders, wire wheels, grille, and roof. And speaking of the folding
top, we love these phaeton bodies because the thin roofline opens
up the car even with the top in place. That gives this American
classic a very European feel. So while it was far from the most
expensive car Ford offered in 1929, today it has a great sporty
profile that keeps it especially in demand. And a well-kept family
car means you get details you don't see on others, like the full
side curtain package. More details that are great to point out
include the MotoMeter hood ornament, dual side spare wheels, and a
proper trunk mounted on the back. Even the Seal Brown inserts and
orange pinstriping is correct on this thoughtful classic. It all
has quite a classic look because the car was restored before the
family purchase, and now it gives off a terrific impression where
it has now aged in under proper care. So some people will just
assume you have a 1929 survivor. And while we won't tell your
secret, we think the full history is even more interesting.
There's a simple charm that awaits you when you open the door.
Black vinyl on the seats, matching door panels, and a durable
rubber mat on the floor give this phaeton roadster a robust look.
It's an authentically vintage appearance right down to the side
wings. Even the four-spoke steering wheel has that ideal classic
feel. But there's more going on here. It's all quite correct, but
you can also tell this car loves to cruise.
The 201 cubic-inch motor continues the car's authentic feel. And
the way this fires up and runs reaffirms the feeling of quality
family care. Nothing here betrays the 1920s driving feeling, but
there's an eagerness that isn't felt on every 90+ year-old classic.
The three-speed manual transmission shifts cleanly with a classic
action and the brakes are effective for a vehicle with modest
performance and light weight. So this open-top four-door phaeton
still knows how to be fun.
Nicely presented and nicely priced, this is the right Model A
Phaeton for those people who love driving their history. So if you
want Henry Ford steel that has an even greater story to tell, call
1929 Ford Model A
