Ford model A 1930


De Ford Model A is een automodel van de Ford Motor Company geproduceerd van 1927 tot 1931. Het model was verkrijgbaar in vier standaardkleuren, maar niet in het zwart. Er zijn 4.849.340 exemplaren gebouwd.

De Ford Model A was de opvolger voor de achttien jaar lang geproduceerde Ford Model T, en werd zelf opgevolgd door de Ford Model B uit 1932. De naam Ford Model A werd ook gebruikt voor een model uit 1903.

De auto werd standaard geleverd met een reservewiel en veiligheidsglas in de voorruit.

The Ford Model A (also colloquially called the A-Model Ford or the A, and A-bone among rodders and customisers), was the second huge success for the Ford Motor Company, after its predecessor, the Model T. First produced on October 20, 1927, but not sold until December 2, it replaced the venerable Model T, which had been produced for 18 years. This new Model A (a previous model had used the name in 1903–04) was designated a 1928 model and was available in four standard colors.

By 4 February 1929, one million Model As had been sold, and by 24 July, two million. The range of body styles ran from the Tudor at US$500 (in grey, green, or black) to the Town Car with a dual cowl at US$1200. In March 1930, Model A sales hit three million, and there were nine body styles available.

Model A production ended in March, 1932, after 4,858,644 had been made in all body styles.[5] Its successor was the Model B, which featured an updated 4-cylinder engine, as well as the Model 18, which introduced Ford’s new flathead (sidevalve) V8 engine.
