Just Toys Classic Cars is proud to present this stunning 1980 Shay
Roadster. The history on these cars goes all the way back to the
70's. Here is a quote from the Shay website with a little history,
Harry J. Shay founded the Model A & Model T Motor Car Reproduction
Corporation in the spring of 1978 (which name was changed to Shay
Motors Corporation in November of 1980).
Harry Shay had a great deal worked out with Ford. The plan was to send at least one car to every Ford dealership across the USA. Ford got publicity and attracted customers to its showrooms and Shay got access to an extraordinary distribution network. One dealer in New-Jersey even said he had people lined up in front of his dealership (shades of December 1927!). Other dealers reported floor traffic of 200 to 600 people in a single day when they first placed a Shay in their showroom. A California dealer said he had not seen such response since the introduction of the Mustang almost 15 years earlier.
This car is extremely clean from tip to tail and top to bottom. The 2.3 Ford 4cyl runs flawlessly and the 4 speed transmission is right and tight. Everything works just like it should and everything is tight. You are going to be one of the coolest people on your block with this car. You could give the kids rides, put it in parades, and just have a blast with this car.
The interiors of these cars are very simple just like they were back on the 20's. No frills in these cars. That being said, everything is in great shape. No rips or tears in the interior or top. Any way that you look at it, this is just one fun cool little car to drive. You are going to get as much attention as the guys with tri chevy's, mustangs, and camaro's at the car shows just explaining what it is to everyone.
Like we said, be prepared to be the coolest person on your block with this car. We do offer classic car financing for those that would like to take advantage of the option. We look forward to speaking with you soon, and we look forward to making you the newest member of the Just Toys Classic Cars family.

Once again, the Hagerty crew has created a drivable automobile in just 100 hours and sourced completely from the piles of used parts at the Hershey Swap Meet.
The idea of Hagerty’s Swap to Street Challenge sprouted from a simple concept often heard at the Hershey Swap Meet, that you could build an entire car from the used parts.
‘I’m a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer…”
Often a popular car to turn into a classic hot rod, the 1930 Ford Model A was created to help Ford maintain a strong presence in the market during a time when other cars began to be more affordable and practical.
“Dry lake” means something different in Southern California than it does in the rest of the world. Speed-obsessed hot rodders since the late 1940s have viewed the flat, dusty expanses of prehistoric lake beds as perfect places to go fast.
