Gallery - Strange Model A's

Below are photos of Model A's that are not production models. Some were prototypes that Ford built, others were prototypes built during the Model A era. And some were owner-modified. If the vehicles could only talk and tell us their history.

1928 Tudor Delivery

Although the Tudor Delivery was built overseas, especially in New Zealand, few if any were left-hand drive and made in the US. Gerald Grizzard of Oxford Alabama just acquired this one, He writes:

I would like to dedicate this article to Vick & Lori Tankerly, they were devoted members of the Central Alabama Model A Ford Club, sadly Vick passed away after complication of knee surgery. I was able to purchase their Model A from Lori, due to Lori disability. Vick converted their 1928 Tudor Sedan to a Sedan Delivery, removing the rear section of the car and installing a third door to accept Lori’s scooter.

This is an amazing little Model A, inserted engine, push button start, 5 speed transmission, Air Conditioning with heat, EZ Steer steering, modern shocks, dual windshield wipers with variable speed, turn signals with the switch mounted on the shift lever, LED lights front & rear, storage under the rear floor & behind the seats. The workmanship on this Model A is superb, the wiring, hoses and everything under the hood looks like what you would expect in an aircraft. Gerald Grizzard

1931 All Stainless Steel Tudor Sedan

Allegheny Steel and Ford came up with this all-stainless steel Tudor Sedan in 1931. Ford and Allegheny got together 5 years later to create a 1936 Ford Stainless Steel vehicle.

The story has it that three 1931 Stainless Steel Tudors were built. One was cut apart and used for trade shows. One was destroyed in a fire. The third disappeared in the 1940s, only to resurface in in the early 2000s on eBay.

The whereabouts of that car is not known.
