1930 Model A Ford - First run of fresh engine
This is a video of the first time running the fresh engine after installing
it. The short block came from H and H Antique from California. The block
is completely fresh with insert bearings and a counter-balanced crankshaft.
Follow along with my daily adventures at ww.365DaysOfA.com where this Model
A is my daily driver from October 2010 to October 2011.
1931 Model A Ford on the Highway
We were driving to our club meeting on Easter weekend. There was lots of
traffic and we could almost keep up. We generally prefer quieter roads and
a slower pace! That's Frankie riding in the back. Note the discoloration
on the dash panel between the speedometer and the ampmeter-- that's where
smokers used to strike their wooden matches.
1928 Ford Model A Race Car
My friend's project race rat rod. It's a Ford Model A with an original
engine, rebuilt by Dave. She still has a ways to go, but this nearly 85
year old car still goes down the road under its own power!
So, this car would typically get around 30 miles per gallon. What the hell
has Ford been doing for the last 80 years?
Learning to drive a manual in a 1930 Model A
Jonathan Klinger has been using a 1930 Ford Model A as his daily driver for

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.
