Description for Ford Model A 1928

This is the last one from an elderly gentleman's private collection to be sold. It's his pride and joy. He reluctantly lets it go as it means he would never drive again. It was sold for 16+k and relisted for non-payment.
The Model A is pace setter for the modern car. It started 4-wheel brakes, safety glass, gear driven transmission, ..... and the list goes on. Many survive to today. It has lasted longer than most people would live! Unlike foreign classics, there is a cottage industry cranking out reproduction parts for fair prices.
This is a desirable Deluxe Sports Coupe (noted by color wire wheels.) Itwas restored a few years back with reproduction wood, new grill shell, new soft top, upholstery, mechanics etc. As it had been stored inside most of its life, the metal is sound, as can be seen in the pictures. It is quite presentable, and makes a nice Sunday driver or a parade car with the Rumble Seat for 2. Most of all, it is so cool and such a fun car to drive. With gas and ignition on, retard timing, up throttle and half choke, it starts first time every time, even after storage. It sits there and purrs! (Not all Model A's are like that.) Something most people never think about, this car smells good!Registration has been current for decades. It has 12 V conversion for convenience use of modern parts. Recent safety updates include halogen head lights, seat belt, right rear mirror, electric windshield wiper, second tail/brake lights and turn signals. It has a new battery, alternator (after picture) and ignition components, ... even a rare cast iron manifold heater, first of its kind. It looks, steers, sounds, runs and stops as it should. It's like going back in time to cruise along, getting looks, smiles, honks and waves along the way. It is as good as a Model A gets.
Classics should be fun, not work. If you haven't owned an "A" before, this is your deal. If you had, you'd agree with what is said. It is ready to drive and enjoy. List your shipping bid at $500 on uShip and wait for last minute trailer space. Secure storage up to 30 days is provided to winning bidder.
