1928 Ford Model A Roadster

Strong RHD example; big 24 HP engine; super fun

The Model A Ford was great value when it was new and this one, thanks to its big 24hp 3.3-litre engine and RHD looks equally good value today.

They are fantastic machines, offering bullet-proof reliability, an amazing parts backup and real on the road power. With a genuine cruising gate between 50 and 55mph and the ability to maintain that speed up hill and down dale, long distances can be covered easily.

This RHD 1928 model hailed from Australia and entered the DVLA database back in 1992. It has only had two owners since then, our vendor acquiring it in 1995 and keeping on top of the care and maintenance evidenced by a massive pile of bills on file.

Paul Rogers Engineering and latterly Belcher Engineering have been through both front and rear axles, along with virtually everything else, multiple bills showing that anything that needed doing was done.

It has a current VSCC buff logbook which although not transferable, shows that it has been accepted as 'standard' and we see no reason why a new owner wouldn't get it passed eligibility - following which a whole host of fun and entertainment begins.

It has good weather equipment, including a hood and side screens and comes with a luggage rack, indicators and a nice Ford calorometer on the top of the radiator.

These Model As make great family cars and are most commonly seen on trials sections, the grunty engine, generous ground clearance and general indestructability making them ideal for that particular task.

This one looks exceptional value at the suggested guide price - which would normally be where a left hand drive saloon would be sitting. If you want to have real fun in an old car, look no further than this one.
