The Ford Model A was a car built worldwide by Ford under license from 1928 to 1931.
The Ford Model A, the replacement to the 18-year-old Model T, was also built in Europe, South America, and the Soviet Union under licence. The car was constructed as a model 1928 on October 20, 1927, and sold on December 2, 1927. The Model A came in four conventional colours, but black was not one of them. The fenders, on the other hand, were usually painted black for production purposes.
The cost of a roadster ranged from $385 to $570 for the four-door Town Car. The engine was a four-cylinder inline engine with upright valves, a 3.3-liter displacement, a Zenith simple riser gasifier, and a power output of around 30 kW. (40 hp). The average fuel consumption per 100 kilometres was between 8 and 9 litres. The Model A had a top speed of around 104 km/h. It featured a 103.5-inch (2.6-meter) wheelbase and a 3.77:1 rear axle ratio. It had a three-speed transmission with reverse gear. All four wheels of the Model A have mechanically controlled drum brakes. The A had a rigid one Tiller axle (pushed forward) on transverse leaf springs, just like the T. The Ford A was the first Ford with standard operation: it had a throttle, brake and clutch pedal and a gearshift lever.
The A model was available in many versions: as a chassis (for bodies from other manufacturers), coupe (standard and deluxe), business coupe, sports coupe, roadster coupe (standard and deluxe), two- and four-seater convertible, Convertible Sedan , Phaeton (Standard and Deluxe), Tudor (Two-Door, Standard and Deluxe), Fordor (Four-Door, Two or Three Windows, Standard and Deluxe), Town Car, Victoria, Station Truck, Taxi , Truck and Commercial. The years of construction 1928/1929 and 1930/1931 look slightly different, but are technically the same for the most part. Thus, the cars of the years of construction 1928/1929 are equipped with 21-inch wheels, the years of construction 1930/1931 with 19-inch wheels.
The production was completed on August 31, 1931, with 4,320,446 built vehicles in all versions. The Model A was replaced by an updated model called the Ford Model B.
The Russian GAZ built in 1932 in a collaboration between Ford and the Soviet Union a licensed version of the vehicle, the GAZ-A . From 1930 to 1933, had Gossudarstwenny Awtosprotschny Zavod imeni KIM ( Russian Государственный автосборочный завод имени КИМ , German National car assembly plant names KIM ), later Moskvich plant , as kits from Ford in Moscow.
Similar to its predecessor, there was also a truck on the same basis. This was named Ford Model AA . It has longer chassis, a reinforced suspension with steel instead of spoked wheels and double tires for the heavier versions. Of this model, there was also a license in the Soviet Union, the GAZ-AA . In addition, the Moscow auto assembly plant built kits as supplied by Ford's passenger car.
