The Ford Model A also colloquially called the A-Model Ford or the A, and A-bone among Hot Rodders was the second huge success for the Ford Company after its predecessor, the Model T.
First produced on October 20, 1927, but not sold until December 2, it replaced the venerable Model T, which had been produced for 18 years.
This new model A (Ford had already used the name in 1903–04) was designated a 1928 model.
By 4 February 1929, one million Model A’s had been sold, and by 24 July, two million. The range of body styles ran from the Tudor to the Town Car. In March 1930, Model A sales hit three million, and there were nine body styles available.
Model A production ended in March, 1932, after 4,858,644 had been made in all body styles.
