Henry built a few million of the model A's and 90 years later they
survive and are more desirable than ever. The 1928 and 29 were
similar bodies with exception of brighter color options and
exterior door handles. This car was professionally restored around
2000 and sat in a museum environment since. While very slight
imperfections are apparent, this car is a beautiful coupe clad in
Vagabond green with leather top and black leatherette rumble seat.
Chrome is show quality, paint very presentable and interior is very
good. The car is faithfully correct with all Henry Ford steel. Has
nice options from marble shift knob, map light, correct drum tail
light, windshield wiper and more. A marginal show, tour class
coupe. The engine was rebuilt for unleaded fuel, good brakes, runs
and drives as new. This one won't last! Youtube video available
upon request. Call our classic car division at 815-385-8408 for
video and/or vehicle information.
