Highly correct, well-coordinated, and driver-ready are all the first impressions you get from this 1929 Ford Model A Phaeton. And as you dig into the details, you'll find a father and son story that has kept this restored classic for nearly 60 years. It makes for a car with true rarity and the best details.
This has been under the same family care since 1964. Let that sink in for a moment... This car is rapidly approaching the century mark, and it has spent more than half of that time with just the father and son! The look on this one is highly correct where Rose Beige is used for the main body, and black is interwoven with the fenders, wire wheels, grille, and roof. And speaking of the folding top, we love these phaeton bodies because the thin roofline opens up the car even with the top in place. That gives this American classic a very European feel. So while it was far from the most expensive car Ford offered in 1929, today it has a great sporty profile that keeps it especially in demand. And a well-kept family car means you get details you don't see on others, like the full side curtain package. More details that are great to point out include the MotoMeter hood ornament, dual side spare wheels, and a proper trunk mounted on the back. Even the Seal Brown inserts and orange pinstriping is correct on this thoughtful classic. It all has quite a classic look because the car was restored before the family purchase, and now it gives off a terrific impression where it has now aged in under proper care. So some people will just assume you have a 1929 survivor. And while we won't tell your secret, we think the full history is even more interesting.
There's a simple charm that awaits you when you open the door. Black vinyl on the seats, matching door panels, and a durable rubber mat on the floor give this phaeton roadster a robust look. It's an authentically vintage appearance right down to the side wings. Even the four-spoke steering wheel has that ideal classic feel. But there's more going on here. It's all quite correct, but you can also tell this car loves to cruise.
The 201 cubic-inch motor continues the car's authentic feel. And the way this fires up and runs reaffirms the feeling of quality family care. Nothing here betrays the 1920s driving feeling, but there's an eagerness that isn't felt on every 90+ year-old classic. The three-speed manual transmission shifts cleanly with a classic action and the brakes are effective for a vehicle with modest performance and light weight. So this open-top four-door phaeton still knows how to be fun.
Nicely presented and nicely priced, this is the right Model A Phaeton for those people who love driving their history. So if you want Henry Ford steel that has an even greater story to tell, call today!
