So as production came to a close for the Model T, Henry Ford halted all production for six months to retool the equipment and prepare for the production of the Model A. The second generation of the Ford Model A began on October 20th, 1927. Sale of the Model A began on December 2nd, 1927 and was offered in four colors. The Model had been available in the United States only in black because it dried the fastest.
The public eagerly awaited the sale of the Model T's replacement and were not disappointed. It was a stylish and elegant vehicle, which had been designed by Henry Ford's son, Edsel. In comparison to its predecessor, it was more sophisticated and complex.
The cost of the second-generation Model A, produced 24 years after the original Model A was sold for $365 less, with price ranging from $385 through $570. The car was powered by an L-head 4-cylinder engine with just over 200 cubic-inches in displacement. A three-speed sliding gear transmission with 1 reverse speed was used. Top speed was achieved a little over sixty-miles per hour with the average fuel mileage being rather exceptional at over 40 MPG.
Just like the Model T, the Model A was available in multiple configurations such as the top of the line Fordor in either 2 or 3 window, Victoria, Station Wagon, Truck, Town Car, Convertible Cabriolet, Phaeton, Business Coupe, Sport Coupe, Roadster Coupe, and Coupe to name a few.
During the production lifespan of the Model A, lasting until August 31, 1931, Ford produced 4,320,446 Model A's. It was replaced by the Model B.
This is a nice Model A Street Rod. This car has a 2x3 rectangle tube frame that is narrowed in the rear for the Pro-Street look and now runs 15x10 wheels. If you want to feel like John Milner in “American Graffiti”, this is the car for you. The power for this street rod is a 350ci Chevrolet small block with a nice healthy Cam Tunnel ram intake and two Holley carburetors on top. A 700R4 automatic overdrive makes for nice cruising and a “Q” Ford rear puts the power to the pavement. The MII style front suspension with tubular upper and lower control arms, rack and pinion steering and coil overs with 11” disc brakes make for nice handling and stopping. This has a nice comfortable cloth interior with VDO gauges and tilt steering and a Lokar shifter. This is a street rod that you'll be proud to drive and have a lot of fun with.
