Extraordinary Replica 1929 Model A Roadster
New to our Benicia showroom is this extraordinary 1929 Model A 2 Door Roadster that was built by Shay in 1980 with red/black exterior paint and a matching black interior. It features a 2.3L four cylinder engine under the hood with a 4-speed manual transmission, plus it comes nicely equipped with an electronic ignition, front disc brakes, rack/pinion steering, and a fiberglass body on a custom factory chassis. This licensed Ford replica has a mere 10,600 lifetime miles showing on the odometer as well and it is in very impressive condition.
One of 5,000 Produced & Driven Only 10,600 Lifetime Miles
This replica Model T Roadster was produced by Shay Motors in Battle Creek, Michigan in 1980 and sold directly through Ford dealerships throughout the country. These were exact replicas of the 1929 Model A’s produced back in Ford’s early years, and demand has always been extreme. Only around half of the intended production run of 10,000 vehicles were produced during the 1980 year, however, because the factory simply could not keep up with demand since they were hand-making these reproductions with six-man teams. Shay Corporation ultimately went out of business in 1982 but the legend lives on.
This particular model was produced in January of 1980 and it has won numerous car show and parade awards during its lifetime. The fiberglass body is still in excellent shape with outstanding paint and very nice chrome, plus it is in complete working order throughout. The engine compartment could use a light freshening to get this beauty back to show quality standards, but otherwise it is beautiful both inside and out. It also drives nicely as well.
Winner of Numerous Car Shows and Parades
Overall, this 1929 Model A Roadster replica is in very nice original condition and you’d struggle to find a better cared for, low mileage example. These models have nowhere to go in value except straight up in the future, so add this one to your collection today while it’s still affordable.
