1928 Ford Model A Additional Info:

Up for auction is a 1928 Model A Ford Special Coupe (49-A) It's painted in vintage Ford colors - dawn gray dark and dawn gray light. No attention to detail was spared when this car had a frame off restoration between 2003 and 2005. The motor, transmission and clutch assembly were done by Schwalm’s Babbitted Bearings Inc. in PA as well as the 7 tooth steering box assembly. The motor has a balanced crank, rod and pistons with a high compression head and a lightened flywheel with a V8 clutch. This motor is not numbers matching to the frame; that motor had a cracked block. The frame and most of the parts in the undercarriage were powder coated. The rear end was rebuilt using the standard gear set. A one-piece brake cross shaft was used in place of the 2 piece original for this year and the trunk was also converted to a rumble seat. The motor currently has an FS Ignitions electronic distributor, a 12v PowerGEN alternator in a generator like housing (2018 Bratton’s Antique Auto Parts, pg. 71 for details). The motor has a cutoff switch mounted on the seat frame and a firewall heater was added to the interior. The wheels have been powder coated straw instead of black and the roof and visor were covered in tan artificial leather instead of black rubber wheat pattern. All of the nickel plated hardware was replaced with stainless steel. The top and interior kits were purchased from LeBaron Bonney and the interior was installed by a local professional – Ted’s Trim Shop. The interior window, door trims and dash panel were wood grained by Woodgrain Specialists in PA. This car runs and drives as good as it looks! Detailed maintenance records are available. The car has been driven about 2600 miles since restoration. The car has been in the family for more than 56 years. The car is being sold as-is where-is and local delivery can be arranged on an open trailer with a front deflector. Either way, delivery is the buyer’s responsibility. The car does not go anywhere untilall money is cleared
