Default A Chevrolet Classic

this one is very rare Model A. Its in very bad shape. Its owned by a local ironsmith. He doesn't want to sell, I tried my best to do so. Amazing thing is that it still works, considering the condition he has kept it in.

I feel pity for it, such a piece of history kept in such dire state.

Ooh! i thought on the scrapped space, a ford logo fits. As its in very bad shape.

Since i took the pix, all these time i thought it to be a ford A.

Thanks

WOW nice find. What is such a car doing in a parking lot?? More importantly, is someone using this as a daily driver

looks like a 34 tourer. A friend recently restored a similar car fully and then sold it away
