Just recently restored is this beautiful specimen of the last year of the Ford Model A, and this car is the most popular of them all, the deluxe roadster. Purchased in unrestored but complete condition, a frame-off restoration was begun last year in September, and after approximately 500 hours of labor, it is at last finished. Most of the high end costs involved restoration of the stainless steel and chrome original components, an engine rebuild along with new under carriage sheet metal, fresh upholstery, top and white wall tires. The client selected the colors, to include the Vermillion red body, tacoma cream wire wheels and brown and tan upholstery and trunk. On paper, these selections were not the ones I would have chosen initially, but as it turned out it is a stunning look to a popular classic car.
