For Sale: 1980 Ford Model A in Kentwood, Michigan


Vehicle Description

Harry Shay Founded the "Model A and Model T Motor Car Reproduction Corporation" also known as "Shay Motors Corporation" in the spring of 1978. In conjunction with Ford Motor Corporation, Shay set out to build a limited number or Model A reproduction cars to mark the 50th Anniversary of the car. Shay had a great deal worked out with Ford as ford waived its design patents so the Shay roadster could be built, and Ford marketed and sold the Shay Model A through its Ford Lincoln Mercury dealerships. Ford loved the publicity, just as in December of 1927, dealers reported 200 to 600 people coming through there show rooms when they first displayed the Shay. Not since the introduction of the Mustang had the dealerships seen so much activity. The Shay was identical to the original in appearance. The fiberglass body were of such excellent quality, even the keenest eye could hardly make out the difference. The mechanicals and suspension were significantly upgraded from the original, giving the Shay a modern feel and could handle the driving and traffic demands of the modern day. The motor was a 2.2 liter Ford Cylinder originally designed for the Pinto. Today, the Shay Model A's remain very popular as the more modern mechanicals keep them a very usable classic.

This beautiful Shay comes with options including a luggage rack with a nice luggage trunk, dual fender mounted spares, automatic transmission, pioneer CD player, side curtains, duolamp tail lights. The paint shows well and the chrome is in great shape. The lug nuts and hubcaps and headlights are nice and shiny. It also has dual cowl mounted marker lights. The Firestone whitewall tires remain in good condition and present well. The spare tires have rear view mirrors mounted on them. The top and upholstery are in great condition as well. Don't miss your opportunity to own this beautiful car.
