OHV Four: 1930 Ford Model A


PREMO Member
It is no secret that Henry Ford loved his flathead four-cylinder engine. Once he had locked in the design for the motor that served so faithfully in his venerable Model T, he had little interest in any other configuration. Cars like this 1930 Model A rolled off the line with a flathead under the hood, but a previous owner of this one has performed a relatively rare performance boost by installing an Overhead Valve conversion. This change has unleashed significantly more power and should make the old Ford a lively performer. All good things must come to an end, and the current owner has decided that the time has come for this Model A to find a new home. It is located in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, and has been listed for sale here on eBay. It seems that people like what they see because the car has already attracted twenty-eight bids. The action has pushed the price to $10,601 in a No Reserve auction.
