1903 Model A Goes to Auction - Oldest Surviving Ford
This particular Model A was ordered on July 13th, 1903, by Herbert L. McNary, a butter maker from Iowa, and it has only had a total of five owners in its 109 years in existence. It is powered by a two-cylinder engine, which displaces 1668 cc, putting out 8 hp. The car has two forward gears, and reverse, and was capable of reaching a top speed of 45 km/h (28 mph).
Only some 1,750 cars were built between 1903 and 1903, and this particular example is expected to fetch somewhere in the region of $300,000 to $500,000 when RM Auctions will auction it off at the Antique Automobile Club of America event, held in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
