1928 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan for Sale. 201 cubic inch 4 cylinder engine and backed with the traditional 3 speed transmission. The Model A was designed by Henry Ford to move America. With it's high ground clearance, it could easily navigate the early roads and lanes in rural America. With room for the whole family, it became the mainstay for many to travel from town to town for business or pleasure. It was a car that started America's love with the automobile. This great looking green and black Model A is accented by a set of bright yellow wire wheels and is ready to continue cruising to local car shows. The electrical system has been upgraded to 12 volts with electric wipers for dependability. A great car to be used in parades or special events. It can be used equally well to advertise a business as it's certainly an attention getter! A quick look will also illustrate where the term "trunk" came from. In the early cars, there wasn't a special area for belongings. Instead, a rack was mounted to the rear of the car where a trunk was placed. When you stopped the car, you simply removed the trunk and brought it into your home. Don't miss this piece of American History!
