1927 Classic Car – FORD MODEL A REVIEW
The Classic Model of FORD MODEL A
Introduced in December 1927, the new Model AFord had a more complex design than the Model T but still had a broadly conventional 3.3-litre 4-cylinder 40bhp side-valve engine producing double the power of the Model T, 4-wheel brakes, and a now conventional 3-speed gearbox. Good for 65mph, the eagerly awaitedFord Model A had up-to-the-minute good looks, a choice of colours this time, and with the usual competitive pricing no fewer than 4,500,000 Model As were manufactured and sold in just four years. Surely the snappiest body style as offered today, the model became the chosen transport of such Hollywood stars as Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford and the exotic Dolores Del Rio.
