This is a transfer from a 38 year old Super 8 movie. The car is a 1930 Model A Ford Town Sedan I purchased when I was 14 years old. I eventually disassembled the car, and partially restored it. I sandblasted the frame, filled and repainted it... restored the transmission, springs, and began work on the body. When I was 17, I was "invited" to leave home... and had to remove the car from storage a couple of years later. It sat outside loosely assembled, for a few years (video says 10 years... it was actually only stored about 7, total inside and out), and I had to sell it. But I had by that time bought a 1940 Chevrolet Special Deluxe, which was my daily driver in high school. I wasn't taking THAT one apart... It broke, I fixed it, end of story.
This was a "from the factory" Town Sedan. The car had original twin sidemounts (twin spare mounts and fender wells), and the original cowl lights, arm rest, and rear pull curtain. Unfortunately it did not have a matching engine number. Knowing what I learned in the years after buying this car, I should have bought privately through Hemmings Motor News... I remember seeing a 1930 Model A Two Door, all original and running, for only $500.
