1930 Ford Model A Town Sedan
Engine: Flathead 4 Cyl. Horsepower: 40 Transmission: 3-Speed Manual
In 1928 the Model A Ford was introduced to the world and became instantly popular with the public. After an 18 year run of the Model T, this was a big step forward for Ford. Unlike the Model T, the Model A had a conventional 3 speed manual gearbox and a had an overall more modern design. Better described as being more luxurious than the old Model T, and for a low price. The engine was still a flathead four cylinder L-head engine, but now with almost double the horsepower of a T and a water pump. The 1928 and 1929 model years looked almost identical, but for the 1930 Model year , Ford gave his Model A a facelift making it even more appealing than ever before. A taller and more modern radiator, swoopier fenders, smaller wire wheels, redesigned stainless headlamps and a redesigned dash, making the 1930 and 1931 Model A's the most sought after model years.
