Description

Ford replaced the ultra-successful Model T with the Model A in late 1927. It was also powered by a four-cylinder, 'L'-Head motor, that displaced 201ci and produced 40bhp coupled to a three-speed manual transmission. The beauty of the Model A, like other early Fords, was the sheer number of bodystyles one could option. Sedans, convertibles, roadsters, coupes, utilities, town cars, wagons...the list goes on. This allowed a Model A to be individualised to taste and this, coupled with its low price, made it continue in the Model T's tradition of providing mass transport in style. By end of production in 1931, almost 5 million Model A Fords were built, with assembly factories in Europe and Australia as well as North America and Argentina.
