1930 Ford Model A

1930 Ford Model A

Henry Ford was always convinced that people should satisfy themselves with nothing more than a good, simple and economical car. At the price of great efforts, his inner circle finally succeeded in eroding his stubbornness and, in May 1927, after having produced more than 15,000,000 Model Ts since 1908, Ford closed his plants for many months in order to retool his assembly lines for the production of his next legend: the Model A. The latter will ultimately be produced in 5,000,000 copies between 1928 and 1931. This new miracle is equally attributable to Henry and his son Edsel. Henry will dedicate himself to the mechanical aspects and Edsel will bring a whole new look to the design of the Model A. The Model T was nicknamed \"TIN LIZZIE\" the Model A will be known as the \"BABY LINCOLN\"

No new automobile has ever been so expected in History. The competition sharply felt the hurt of this waiting period (as much as tens of thousands of Ford employees which were temporarily laid off) since many were putting off their purchase of a new car in order to see what Henry was going to pull out of his hat this time. He literally made a lady out of a lizzy, so we offer you for consignment a 1930 Ford Model A which is sadly leaving its consigner due to an obsession with tractors, for which this car was traded.

Exterior
From head to toe this car is a fully functioning great looking original Henry design car and it is bathed in two tone green with black fenders. This is an all steel bodied surviving example. This paint job accentuates the wonderful lines of this car which have been retained and sport a peppering of chrome trimmings. Speaking of chrome the radiator cap is the iconic flying quail...which was chosen by Henry due to its ability to quickly fly away, which hopefully his car would do when pressing the accelerator. Running boards are solid and have a rubber liner with a cast step on to protect the rubber. A rumble seat in on back, and on top is a vinyl top due to the constraints of a metal press technology of the time. Also, we see a sun visor on top of the windshield and a mounted spare tire resides on the back. Nicely restored lighter green painted wire wheels are on all around.

Interior
Swinging open the doors we are met up front with a squinting eye shaped dash, in sprayed black metal and a faux metal painted wood grained dash top if you will. Embedded within a chromed \"mask\" style instrument cluster black faced vintage style gauges, and white pointers. Fronting this dash is a black bakelite steering wheel complete with the obligatory throttle, signal, and timing advance levers. A bench seat, and door panels are showing in tan mohair broadcloth, with the seats being tufted tuck and roll. For the mother-in-law seat in back, it is covered in weatherproof brown vinyl. Floors are wood with just a hint of rubber and painted in black.

Drivetrain
Opening the side cowl reveals an earlier fully restored engine bay. This is a 201ci inline 4-cylinder which is topped with a 1-barrel carburetor and a 3-speed manual transmission which are original to this car. 3.78 gears are reserved for the rear axle. Slight surface rust is noted between the block of the engine and the head, possible due to a leaky gasket in the past.

Undercarriage
Fully sorted, no rust just black paint with slight patina covers all the undercarriage metal structure. Transverse leaf springs are on front and rear, and mechanical drum brakes are just behind the light green wire wheels. All is looking good underneath.

Drive-Ability
A fun driver which fired right up and took off like the flying quail escaping the sights of a hunter. It handled nicely and mechanical drum brakes were solid and stopped us. All was well save for the speedometer which was not functioning when our consigner first purchased this car and he never fixed it.

A wonderful restoration, fine runner, and comfy interior with the rumble seat, a 2-door sports car if you will all in 1930 style and garb. You could win a show with this example. Note a soft car cover comes with it.
