1930 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan - Very Nicely Restored Original
1930 Ford Tudor Sedan that has been restored from the ground up. They have
a stack of receipts for nearly every part on this car being restored or
replaced. The engine, transmission and rear end have all been rebuilt and
are believed to be the the originals. The body was taken off the frame and
both were restored. Andalusite Blue paint which is nearly black, black
fenders, and a blue gray interior really make this old Ford stand out.
Under 5,000 miles since everything was redone and it shows. This is a very
nice example of a stock 1930 Ford. Thanks for watching and commenting, I

The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various
names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just 'T'.
The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became
popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the
car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this
was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production
instead of individual hand crafting.
On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off
the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.
