Ford Model A Tudor 3-door Sedan. Delivery

Ford 3-door Sedan 1931

A Ford Model A Tudor with a rear door is an interesting car. The door seems to be added at the Danish Ford Motor Factory already in 1931. I was told that this car once was used as  delivery car at a bakery. The car has been storaged in a Garage in the center of Stockholm / Sweden for more that 40 years. Now is it up and runing again. First start up was three weeks after I took it out from the storage. Ok there were some job to just get it going. Later on I had to do a more to get it roadworthty. After some weeks of intensive work in the Garage it did run fairly well. Nowdays it is in very much better condition and runs and drives prefectly.

More Pictures of this car can be found at Facebook Group ” A-Ford 1928-1931 at Facebook

 

 

Sometimes the pressure of time to get a car ready is high and so it was this time. Our daughter wanted the Model A-Ford at her wedding . I offered her a Caddilac 1939 cabrio but she said to me. “Dad, we’ve grown up with Model A-Fords, we have holidays driving the A-Fords so now I really expect you to get this A in running condition dad “Ok I have had Model A.s for more that 40 years so there must be a fair chance to get it done in a short time.  There was just 3 weeks free time  aviable for the “restauration”.I made it !  The car got a new upholstery, new tires, new electrical system, brake overhaul, new wheel bearings, restored water pump, new radiator, new motor head etc

Caddillac 1939 Photo 1939 in Stockholm

Cadillac 1939 on tour in Sweden

Cadillac 1939 on tour in Sweden

Cadillac V-8 1939
7533 7-seater convertible
Body by Nordbergs Vagnfabrik, Sweden
Chassis number 3291068
Swedish registration number HOC 126.

This car was exported to Sweden as a ”CKD”, Crated Knocked Down. The chassis with cowl was exported in a huge wooden box and the car then assembled by General Motors in Stockholm.
The huge convertible body was designed and built by Nordbergs Vagnfabrik in Stockholm, a company that had built bodies for horse-drawn vehicles and cars since the beginning of the 20th century. They were known for their elegant bodies on Rolls-Royce, Isotta-Fraschini, Mercedes-Benz 540K, Packard and many other fine cars. Reputedly this Cadillac had in 1939 the longest convertible top in the world built in one piece. It is remarkably easy to raise or lower the top due to a special construction with a springloaded counterweight in the trunk.
The car vas built for the managing director Martin Waldenström of Grängesberg AB (one of Sweden’s oldest mining companies) and used at his manor at Nådhammar in Södermanland (south-west of Stockholm).
For many years it was widely used in Sweden and abroad as a rally car by Bert Andersson, one of the foremost enthusiasts for old cars in Sweden.
Anders Läck is now the third owner of the car, which has been brought to the USA for the Cadillac 100 Year celebrations in 2002. It has taken part in many rallies, as in Scotland/England in 1996 and the Rally Mondial in France 1998.

Early Ford Model A

 

This picture is of the first Model A delivered to this family 26 of Jan 1928 In Denmark. Obviosly there were several cars delivered very early to Denmark as we can read in the newspapers from Jan 1928 that Ford dealers had the NEW FORD for test drive.

The ship must have left the US in December 1927 with all those cars. These must have had very low chassis numbers. The Model A Roadster A 189 can have been one of the cars that came with the same boat as the cars we now can read in Danish newspapers. A189 was delivered to Stromstad Sweden and sold February 1928 to a Swedish customer.
A189 is still the “oldest” known Model A. It has the lowest known chassis number. Nice car that I did study very well as long as it was in Sweden. Experts in USA know more about those early Model A´s and much can be found at the www.mafca.com website.

We do search för information about the early Model A introduction all over the world.
Please contribute if you can.

My best regards
