I'm gonna let you in on a little secret...”This Model A sedan is nothing short of spectacular!” This Model A, built in 2008 and traveled just 10,701 miles since, is not only road worthy, but will grab all of the attention you can handle at any car show, cruise-in, or for that matter, just cruisin' down the street.
This sedan has cold A/C, but you're likely not gonna need it 'cuz you can just look into the cool pool blue/green base/coat, clear/coat paint, settle into that White “Snow Storm” interior, and you'll be cool enough! Believe that!!
The body and paint is as clean, and shiny as can be. Very subtle pin-stripping finds it's way around the car, and the styling ques you can see that draw you to this Model A will surely put a smile on your face as well as the vast amount of on-lookers.
The engine fires right up and settles into a nice little performance idle, and anticipates the moment it gets to leap forward to show it's strong capability.
This Model A, unlike many others has plenty of room to be comfortable while in the driver's seat, and the gauges and controls are nicely laid out.
All of the window glass is excellent and nicely tinted to keep those blazing hot car-show days in check.
This Sedan is easy to drive, and easy to see out of. The bumpers, front grill, and stainless components are excellent.
If you're dreaming of owning a top-notch show car that wins trophy’s, yet, has the ability to cruise in a slow parade on a hot summer day with the A/C blasting, and then take a long road trip in comfort, well, this is it right here. All bases are covered. You can't say that about too many cars.
