Own a rare piece of automotive history. For sale is a 1930 Ford Model A Victoria Deluxe Sedan. This well-preserved car is in excellent condition both inside and out, runs and drives exceptionally well, and has no driveability issues.The name Model A was first used by Ford in 1903 and was also known as the Fordmobile. This was the first vehicle produced by the Ford Motor Company. Production of the first-generation Model A lasted from 1903 through 1905 with 1,750 examples being produced. After producing 15 million Model Ts, Henry Ford shut down his River Rouge complex in May of 1927 to retool for the long-awaited replacement. The public eagerly awaited the sale of the Model T’s replacement and were not disappointed. It was a stylish and elegant vehicle, which had been designed by Henry Ford’s son, Edsel. In comparison to its predecessor, it was more sophisticated and complex.
During the production lifespan of the Model A, lasting until August 31, 1931, Ford produced 4,320,446 Model A’s. Manufactured in November 1930, this car has many 1931 Victoria features, as well as some important safety features, including turn signals, front seat belts, windshield wipers, headlamp eyebrows with high beam notice, and the instrument panel built into the gas tank. However, it is the interior trunk that makes this car very rare and collectable, along with the electric “Ah-ooh-gaa” special Model A horn. This all steel body car has 4,642 miles (TMU) on it since it was restored, and features a beautiful two-tone paint color of Elk Point Green, and Kewanee Green, matched with Black fenders, Apple Green wire wheels, and attractive pinstripes.
