Even the smallest parts can make a big difference in your auto restoration. That's especially true when you are restoring a real classic, such as the Ford Model A. Just like its predecessor the Ford Model T, this car played a major role in American automotive history. Whether you're restoring one of these vintage autos to display at a show or add to your collection, or you're turning it into a hot rod or custom car, you need to get everything right, down to the last detail.
The Right Look and Performance
The hardware and fasteners that hold these vintage autos together should look authentic and provide sturdy, durable fastening power. But it can be challenging to find the right stuff at your local auto parts store or hardware emporium. Mac's Auto Parts offers a simple solution. We offer scores of Ford Model A parts and hardware products that will look just right. Just as important, they will meet or exceed the specs for the original fasteners.
A Storied History
Although Henry Ford was understandably reluctant to give up production of the Tin Lizzie, which sold more than 15 million during its nearly 20-year run, market pressures forced him to come up with a new model. The public was beginning to demand more powerful engines, electric starters and other options. Manufactured from 1927 to 1931, the Model A proved a worthy and affordable successor to the flivver. Available as a coupe, sedan, station wagon and other styles, this affordable everyman's car sold nearly 5 million models over its shorter lifespan.
Many pieces of Model A hardware cost less than a buck, but that doesn't mean you should overlook them. You'll find everything you need here for an authentic restoration, from nickel-plated washers to oval-head wood and sheet-metal screws and four-piece Bakelite landau spacer sets for cabriolets and sport coupes.
