We like the Ford Model A because it's one of those great classics that doesn't discriminate. They can be appreciated by nearly anyone no matter mechanical skill or financial ability. This 1930 sedan is the perfect example of an affordable classic that chugs down the road with ease and gets smiles wherever it goes.
This is one of the best ways to enjoy the Model A. You'll get a kick out of calling it the "Fordor" sedan – yes, Ford had a sense of humor when it came to the name. The fully enclosed cabin is part of what really made this one a leap over the Tin Lizzy, but it does not lose its iconic presence that symbolizes the dawn of the automotive age. The black pant has great gloss and shine. Some might think that the green wheels and it's matching full-length body pinstripe are about trying to get attention. But you'll find joy in telling them how Apple Green wheels were a factory option on the Deluxe Fordor beginning in 1930. All the doors shut with confidence and the bright bumpers are spectacular, so the fundamentals are covered on this Model A. But what will really make people take notice are the great details like the all the sun visor, correct spare in the rear, and the excellent condition of the vinyl on the roof.
Open the door and you'll see the seats, door panels, and headliner all of the kind of condition that lets us know this was a cared for classic. The cloth looks original, but the way it feels to the touch tells us there was an investment here. This Model A is all about being authentic – from the classic four-spoke steering wheel to the bright instrument panel. There is the addition of an aftermarket temperature gauge, but this vital readout doesn't look too out of place. In fact, this thoroughly correct interior means raising the front windshield and rolling down the side windows to get your ventilation the way families did a few generations ago.
When you get under the hood, Ford's 200 cubic inch four cylinder engine looks amazingly correct and authentic right down to the green paint on the block. This motor is all about torque, and the overachieving little machine makes a distinctive sound that's been beloved for generations. It happily pulls this Fordor around without working too hard and cruises at 45 MPH, so it's not a problem on modern surface streets. The three-speed manual transmission shifts cleanly with a quick double-clutch and the brakes are effective for a vehicle with modest performance and light weight. So, in total, this 85+ year-old is still a fun runabout.
