World’s Oldest Ford Returns Home to Celebrate Company Founder
text size: A- A+
Considered the oldest surviving Ford vehicle, the 1903 Model A was unveiled today to Ford Motor Company employees by Executive Chairman Bill Ford, who purchased the vehicle at an auction in October.
This car is believed to be car No. 3, chassis No. 30, and the lone survivor of the group of three Model A cars sold on that July 13th, 1903!
“The timing was perfect to bring this key part of Ford heritage back to the family as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of my great-grandfather’s birth and his vision to improve people’s lives by making cars affordable for the average family,” said Bill Ford. “His vision to build cars that are reasonably priced, reliable and efficient still resonates and defines our vision today as well.”
