EXCELLENT REPLICA BY GLASSIC, RELIABLE AMC DRIVETRAIN, VERY RARE CAR, SUPER NICE
The true key to happy classic car ownership is finding the right vehicle that gives you the confidence to take it out whenever and wherever you want. That's what makes this Ford Model A replica so appealing. It might look like an 86-year-old classic, but beneath the vintage appearance is a more modern drivetrain and desirable features.
The people at Glassic only produced a small number of Model A replicas. In fact, there were less than 1,800 estimated built over a 15-year run, and less than 350 of this particular model. The durable fiberglass body means this one still looks great after years of Saturday parades and Sunday drives. The red paint even still has the right kind of luster to attract attention even in a crowded parking lot. This one has all the great elements you love in a classic Model A, including the upright grille, running boards, chrome luggage rack w/trunk, and the spare wheels mounted in the fender like the Deluxe models. But this is no ordinary Model A reproduction. Glassic took advantage of some upgrades to Ford's iconic design. This includes larger doors and 15-inch wire wheels, both of which make this convertible feel more practical without effecting the vintage feeling.
Your first look at the interior, and you would not immediately notice this is a replica. The brown leather seats and matching door trim are very well presented. And this one also gets the details right from the wind wings on the side of the windshield to the fantastic rumble seat. But then you slip into the driver's seat and find a more comfortable wheel than an original Model A. There's a full gauge package in place, which is always a welcomed sight. You even have an AM/FM/CD stereo so you can choose between 1930s flapper music or more modern tunes for your road trips. It doesn't even have to be a sunny day drive with the included heater and full top/curtain package.
The true feeling of reliability comes into play the moment you open the hood. Glassic utilized the motor from the International Harvester Scout 800. This four-cylinder provides plenty of pep, especially when compared to the original four-cylinder A's. It fires up it ease, and the maintenance is hand tool simple. It's not just the engine that's upgraded. The entire underpinnings were borrowed from the Scout, which includes the three-speed manual transmission as well as the hardy chassis and suspension. So in the end, you have a classic roadster that looks great but drives substantially better.
There's no greater feeling than cruising down the road in a true classic that sounds authentic right down to the "Aoooga!" horn. And now you do that with a confidence thanks to a more modern vehicle. But the Glassics are becoming rare, so call today!!!
