Ford gets an A

 

A 1929 Model A Ford Phaeton is revved up and ready to go under the Charterhouse hammer in their specialist auction of classic and vintage cars on Wednesday 12th September.
“It is a beautiful looking tourer which had a body off restoration some 20 years ago.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “Today the car still presents very well and has the benefit of being a right hand drive car unlike many of the A’s which were made for the American market and therefore left hand drive”.

The Ford Model A was introduced in 1927 and followed on from the venerable Model T. The Model A was always going to be a hard act to follow on from the Model T which was produced from 1908 until 1927 duringwhich time 16.5 million T’s left the production line.
However, straight away the Model A was a huge success for Ford and nearly 5 million A’s rolled out of the factories from 1927 to 1932.
Today they are a rare sight on the road and this well presented Ford Model A Phaeton, with its 3.3 litre engine, large folding hood, wire wheels and plenty of chrome is estimated to sell for £14,000-16,000
