It’s with a very heavy heart that I have now officially put A495 up for sale. It is arguably one of the finest restorations of a Model A and an extremely detailed restoration of the earliest Model A’s.
After the restoration A495 was completed in 2014, it was judged at three national Model A meets and was the Best of Show at each. It was displayed at two other national meets. Since then it has spent two years in the MAFFI Museum at the Gilmore in Hickory Corners, Michigan and three years in a trailer in my shop. This summer I will bring it to the MARC National meet in Dearborn, Michigan.

$195,000 firm.

Whether you are interested as a potential buyer or just curious, send an email to a495dean@gmail.com and I will send you a link to a file of photos at Dropbox. I will also send a copy of an article that I wrote about A495 for the Model A News.
