This delightful example comes from a collection in northern Mississippi where it was completely, frame-off restored by Model A expert Tommy Kuntz in 2015. Perfectly ready for display & show purposes, it has also been driven approximately 400 miles since completion. The body started as a magnificent specimen that was last restored in the 1960’s. With the paint and interior looking tired, the body was completely stripped to bare metal and the entire chassis media blasted, and both were repainted. The engine is now meant to run on modern unleaded fuels, with all new braking system, all new suspension with fresh front & rear springs, all new chrome components, all new fresh fluids, ignition system, rebuilt generator, starter, new radiator & water pump, fresh 6-volt battery with auxiliary cutoff switch, and so much more! The same can be said of the beautifully recreated interior upholstery. All brand new from the headliner down, with the addition of safely belts. We quickly found the running gear to be in superb condition and worthy of speeds of 55-60mph without concern! We would welcome any questions and personal inspections. Please call anytime to discuss either possibility further. Thanks for looking!
