My Grandpa's Model A Ford in March 2009
This was an old video that my grandpa and I decided to shoot while the
model A was in the midst of being restored. As you can see, he did the
majority of the work with the occasional help of a friend and auto body
specialist as well as his brother-in-law (I was interested more in model
cars and filmmaking at the time instead of mechanics, so I did not
participate.) I edited this video originally in March 2009 for my old
youtube channel lobsterbox22, but since I have a brief video of it starting
and driving I figured that it would be suitable to upload this old footage
to give people some background on how such a beautiful car turned out.
A little background of the 1928/1929 Ford Model A Special Coupé:
It basically came about when Henry Ford and his team redesigned the Model A
for the 1929 production year; instead of storing the remaining 1928 parts
as new old stock, they decided to use the remaining 1928 parts in the
production of a "special" Model A. It stood out mainly because of the
vinyl hard top, which was a lot like that found on the Model A Sport
Coupés of the era except it had smaller, rounded windows in the back where
there normally would have been only vinyl. These Special Coupés didn't
sell very well, mainly because of the fact that they were put together with
mixed parts and were produced in low numbers. During the restoration, my
grandfather learned about this, and discovered that the left and right
fenders were of different design (LF was a '29 and RF was a '28.) During
the restoration, he needed to purchase a new left front fender, and he
opted to purchase the 1929 instead of a 1928 fender to match the original
factory configuration. When I asked him about this, he told me:
"Originality is more important than symmetry."
