New plugs and points were installed along with a new 6vdc battery. Running boards step plates were also installed at this time.

In the spring of 2014 a rebuilt starter motor, ew modern bendix gear, ew starter switch and a new air-balance Zenith carburetor (Snyder part # A-9510-A) with an air filter was installed, ll new fuel lines along with a new modern fuel shut-off-value, ew fuel tank gauge, ew leakless water pump and a rebuilt speed-o-meter along with a new speed-o-meter cable and drive assembly were installed. It is also noted that all light bulbs including new halogen headlight bulbs were replaced. New “modern” distributor, istributor cap, otor cap, ires, nd an ignition coil were installed. New laminated fiber timing gear was installed. Valve cover and oil return gaskets were installed along a new valve cover. New one-piece manifold gasket, ew mufflers both intake and exhaust manifolds were installed. New brake rod anti-rattler kits and brake and clutch pedal shaft set were installed. The oil was changed, ll joints were greased including the throw-out bearing, ransmission and rear-end oil was changed (600W oil), he radiator coolant was replaced and a new 2 blade cast aluminum fan blade was installed. Coolant hoses and clips were replaced. Headlights were also adjusted and yes the model A was cleaned and waxed.

2015 was a major year in the history of this Model A. The old overhauled engine was replaced with a new New Snyder Antique Auto Parts counterbalanced touring engine part # A-6005-LHB was installed along with a lightened flywheel with-V-8 clutch and throw out bearing. The three hour engine break-in was completed and records made part of the Model “A” files. New float-A-motor kits (both front and rear) were installed. The radiator was flushed and cleaned and new antifreeze was installed. New front axle and a spindle kit were installed, he radius rod ball was replaced and a shorten pitman arm, teering shaft with worm, econditioned steering arm (double ball), econditioned steering arm (single balls) and a 2-tooth steering sector were installed and the two teeth steering box was completely cleaned and rebuilt (along with all new internal parts) (this model “A” drives with one hand on the wheel). The spark and gas control rods were rebuilt. Brakes were adjusted. New 30-30 amp-meter was installed. Rear turn signal with flasher unit was installed. The steering column was reinforced with a 1930’s model steering column support to protect the fuel tank. The oil was changed and all grease joints were service.

There has been over $25,000.00 spent on its restoration over the last ten (10) years of it life which has been a labor of love.

There is a box of spare parts including a two complete set of spark plugs, il pan gaskets, crews and rubber grommets, 00W oil and a 1929 Ford Model “A” service manual by Les Andrews several parts manuals along with a Ford owner’s manual. The old functional bat-wing distributor cap and wiring is also in the part box (I keep this for car shows). It even comes with a full tank of gas.

Yes, ere it is 2016 and there is still work to be completed (every year fixing little things). Yes, t’s a Model “A” and it will need your attention on a regular basis (this is part of the fun of ownership of a Model “A”). But the good news is you can cruise all day at 40-45 mph and you can enjoy the ride. The speed-o-meter has been checked against my GPS and it reads 3mph slower then true speed. The new engine now has about 650 miles on it. This Model A has always been garage keep since 2005.
