Ford Model A 1929 Description

1928 / 1929 Model A Ford / Shay Replica


OPTIONS LOADED & only 7,200 original miles!

HISTORY: This Deluxe Roadster with Rumble Seat has only 7,300 original miles. This was a one owner car driven by a little old lady from San Francisco, he is a 91 year old lady and bought this car in Illinois when she retired, I have a copy of original Illinois title and California title ), then she had it shipped to California, o it basically has been in California for its whole life. It was her pride & joy. She bought it and for years she kept it, s her very special car and drove it on Saturdays to the grocery store.

This car has an up to date California Smog approved data sheet.

MECHANICAL: This vehicle has always been maintained and kept in a heated garage its whole life. As it was sponsored for parades by a local auto shop, t has been extremely well maintained. It is a basic Ford Pinto/Mustang running gear with the optional AT transmission… so it can cruise at full highway speeds and go anywhere. Several years ago the shop rebuilt the factory carb, id tune ups and always lubed the car as needed for pre-parade checks. We have some extra items that go with the car, opies of all the original papers. This is a very rare & loaded out early production car in an excellent color combination. With only 7,200 miles, ou can see original stickers and how clean it is under the hood too.

The Ford Shay was molded in glass using the original body molds for the car. It was produced and first sold in 1979 as a “50 YEAR ANNIVERSARY” Celebration by Ford Motor Company for the Model A. It was only sold through authorized Ford Dealers. In 1980 they produced the “Super Deluxe” with more options included. This car is a “Super Deluxe Roadster” with most options available. (I will list what options I can below and I may have missed a few) The car was produced as a 1929 Model A, nd is actually Ca. State titled as a 19 vehicle, t has primarily been used as a weekend driver & local Parade Car.

Somebody will be getting a great car to enjoy for many years to come!
