Produced between October 20, 1927 and August 31, 1931, the first model A was sold on December 2nd, 1927. The legendary Ford assembly lines turned out an amazing 4,320,446 Model As. Of those, 117,849 were Touring Phaetons. In 1929 alone, Ford produced 1,715,100 Model As, including 49,818 Touring Phaetons.
This car is powered by the original L-head 4-cylinder engine with a displacement of just over 200 cubic inches. A 3-speed sliding gear transmission with one reverse speed takes the car to a top speed of a little over 60 mph with fuel economy over 40 MPG, exceptional even by today’s standards! Prices ran from 385 to 570 dollars depending on body style and options. This wonderful classic carried its owners throughout New Jersey and, more recently, Montana. This beautiful restoration has resided in a private collection in Southern California since 2003.
