The Model A was a huge step forward for Ford. It was the first car ever to be fitted with laminated safety glass windshield and the first Ford to feature the standard driver controls we know today. The Model A was sophisticated compared to its predecessor, with a new 3.3L four cylinder that makes twice the power of the Model T, mated to a 3-speed manual transmission, and equipped with 4 wheel drum brakes. The top on this sporty roadster is beautiful and brand new and goes perfectly along with the gorgeous leather interior and rumble seat, and is even fitted with the optional rear view mirror. Finished in black accented by a light pinstripe, this Model A doesnt just look good on the surface, the underside is just as clean as the top.
