Built from 1927 to 1931, the Model A was Ford’s first production car with conventional controls, allowing it to compete with the likes of Chevrolet who had overtaken Ford’s top spot in sales in 1927. The Model A was robust, simple, and easy to drive with good performance from the flathead four-cylinder engine. The Model A has gone on to become a cornerstone of the collector car hobby and with nearly 5 million built, they remain plentiful, affordable and a fabulous choice for a wide range of enthusiasts.
Ford replaced the venerable Model T in 1928 with the completely new Model A. The company’s first panel-truck bodies also arrived that year and could be fitted to either the A or AA chassis. Nowadays, the Pickup truck Model A is the most desirable pick up from the first-time classic car buyer to the dedicated collector and still has near universal appeal.
