Ford Model A

  • The Model A Ford fitted 440x21 tyres from 1928-1929. The 440/450x21 Lucas Tyre in this size is extremely good value. Dougal drives on these tyres and was pleasantly surprised by how good they are!
  • The later Model A Ford from 1929-1931 fitted a 475x19 tyre. Dougal's wife Liz has a 1930 Model A Saloon and she finds the 475/500x19 Michelin DR a very grippy and comfortable tyre to drive on, it also has a very vintage tread pattern.
  • The 475/500x19 Lucas is also very good value.
  • Recommended tyre pressures for a Model A Ford are: 36 psi with 21” wheels and 34 psi with 19” wheels.

When Dougal buys parts for Model A's he tends to get them from http://www.oneillvintageford.co.uk. Dave O'Neil is very knowledgeable and the service you get, couldn't be better.

Replacement for the ubiquitous Ford Model T, the vintage Model A Ford went on sale in December. A much more complex car than its predecessor, the Ford Model A was also more powerful with its 3.3 litre four cylinder sidevalve engine producing a whole 40BHP, which was double the power of the Ford Model T. This gave the Model A Ford a top speed of 65mph (sometimes). A three speed sliding gear transmission replaced the Ford Model T's planetary gears, there was also in amongst all the excitement a coil and battery instead of magneto ignition and also which seems almost unbeleivable a brake for all four wire wheels.

The Model T Ford's ungainly styling was abandoned,and the eagerly awaited Model A Ford up to the minute looks,wider choice of colours and needless to say competitive pricing helped ensure its success.
