“One of the greatest discoveries a man makes,
one of his great surprises, is to find he can
do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.”
Saw this Ford Model A parked on the Esplanade today. It was such a beauty, I just had to snap a shot of her.
I’m not sure what year this car is, but the Ford Model A was the Ford Motor Company’s second huge success after its predecessor, the Model T.
The Model A was first produced on October 20, 1927, and was available in four standard colors. Prices for a new Model A ranged from $385 for a roadster to $1,400 for the top-of-the-line Town Car.
In today’s market, a Ford Model A restored like the one I took a photo of would be worth anywhere from $10,000 upwards to $100,000 depending on the year of the Model A.
I bet Henry Ford himself would be proud to know that people collect and still drive one of Fords most popular automobiles, the Ford Model A.
