In 2005 restoration started on this 1929 Ford Model “A” Sport Coupe. At the start of restoration the following was done: new steel fenders, running boards, paint (painting was with the body apart then the car was assembled, all new bolts and new lacquer coated wire loom was used), new interior, wood flooring, shocks, and the fuel tank was cleaned and repaired, new cloth top was installed and all chrome was refinished or replaced with new and the engine was completely overhauled.

In 2013 the wheels were powder coated the correct color, received five new tires, inter tubes and rim liners, new brake shoes, new Sparton horn and an alternator to replace the 6vdc generator. New plugs and points were installed along with a new 6vdc battery.Running boards step plates were also installed at this time.

In 2014 a rebuilt starter motor, new modern bendix gear, new starter switch and a new air-balance Zenith carburetor (Snyder part # A-9510-A) with an air filter was installed, all new fuel lines along with a new modern fuel shut-off-value, new fuel tank gauge, new 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, distributor cap, rotor cap, wires, and 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, new muffler and tailpipe, 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, all joints were greased including the throw-out bearing, transmission and rear-end oil was changed (600W oil), the 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 a-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, the radius rod ball was replaced and a shorten pitman arm, steering shaft with worm, reconditioned steering arm (double ball), reconditioned 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.

Yes, here it is 2016 and there is still small day today care required (every year fixing little things like tightening oil pan bolts, cleaning plugs etc.).Yes, it’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 654 miles on it now.

This Model A has always been garage keep since 2005.With the help of my Grandson the summer service has be completed, oil changed, greased and transmission and rear-end serviced.

There is a box of spare parts including a two complete set of spark plugs, oil pan gaskets, screws, new fan belt and rubber grommets, 600W 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. It even comes with a full tank of gas.
