David's 1929 Model A
The automobile featured on the front cover of this month’s Sidelight belongs to fellow KYANA club
member David Jones. It’s a totally original 1929 model “A” Ford four door town sedan. It rolled off the assembly line on July 17, 1929.
Many of our club members own unrestored cars but very few this old. So, I don’t need to tell you
how rare this one is. The first time I saw it, it was love at first sight. So, when David asked me to help him with this article, I was glad to do it.
This car is a true time capsule from the 1920’s. David’s car was three months old when the stock
market crashed and flung the country into the great depression. When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 David’s 29 Ford Model “A” was already a twelve-year-old automobile so it was lucky not to be a victim of the scrap metal drives for the war effort.
