For Sale: 1928 Ford Model A Rootlieb Speedster in Leesburg, Florida

$24,000 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

I am offering an amazing Model A speedster. This Rootlieb bodied ā€™28 speedster is  the first Model A kit manufactured by Rootlieb Manufacturing and belonged to Mr. Rootlieb himself. This is a wonderful driving speedster that is built on a true Model A frame and is titled as a 1928 Ford Model A. This is said to be the same Speedster used in the Rootlieb sales brochure and literature. I have a 1993 Nebraska title showing the previous owner was Henry Rootlieb as well as California registrations in his name. The body is very straight and with its elongated hood, gives the car a great stance and look. The steel fenders are solid and the chrome is all in great condition. The car does have an original style Model A steel front bumper which looks great as well as the classic Model A flying quail radiator cap. All of the stainless is in good condition and shows no pitting or damage. The seats have been recovered and look great. The wood dash is in wonderful condition and includes the classic Model A gauge cluster which works with no problems. Steering wheel is solid as well as the wood floor. Lights and horn work as they should.. Under the hood, the four cylinder, and the three speed manual transmission are in great running condition. The car is a blast to drive. This is a great rally car or parade car. The tires are in good condition. There is a full size spare mounted to the rear.  VIN number is A560435 and the car is being sold on a clean Florida title.
