Model A Day
September 14-15, 2018

It will probably never happen again! Five Model A Ford Town Car/Town Car Deliveries all located together at one place at the same time. Model A Ford lovers will be able to see the cars on display in the Model A Museum over the Model A Day weekend of September 14-15, 2018. The collection includes the following models:

1928 Town Car which is the only one known to exist (prototype)
1929 Town Car which is one of 18
1930 Town Car which is one of two known to exist
1930 Town Car Delivery which is the only one known to exist
1931 Town Car Delivery which is one of six known to exist

The cars are all owned by Tim Kelly who has been collecting and restoring them for many years. They have not been shown before due to the recent restoration of two of the cars and might not be shown together for while or ever publicly. That is why this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Space will be cleared in the museum for the cars to be shown together, so they can be seen and photographed individually and as a group. The cars bridge the four years of Model A production from 1928 to 1931. Plans are underway to make this year’s Model A Day one of the best yet!

Also on display will be:

Model A #1 (Edison’s car)
Model A Taxi
Model A Postal Vehicle
Model A Fire Engine
Two Model A Convertible Sedans (A400)
Rare 1931 wide-bed Roadster Pickup
Right hand drive De Luxe Phaeton

We plan, as one of the seminars, to have a presentation on the Edstrom collection, Tim Kelly’s Town Cars and Don Bevin’s Model A. We are in the process of up fitting a 1930 AA Stake Bed Truck to allow for visitor rides. This unique and free opportunity to ride in the back of a AA will be available for Model A Day. And don’t forget the swap meet!

So mark September 14-15 on your calendars now for this Once In A Lifetime Experience.
