1980 Ford Model A DeluxeIf you are looking at this ad, I assume that you know what a Shay Roadster is. For those who do not, here is the very short version:
In 1978, a company called Shay Motors struck a deal with Ford Motor Company to produce a small amount of replicas of the 1929 Model A Roadster. These were made by Shay, using their glass body and Ford's running gear. They ultimately produced a few thousand of these, which were used as promotion for and sold at Ford dealerships across the country from 1979 through 1982.
This 1980 Shay Deluxe Roadster is in absolutely fantastic condition and has just 6700 original miles. The body is in extremely good condition with no defects to speak of. It has never been wrecked/repaired. The body and paint are original and in fantastic condition. It has always been stored inside, under a cover and meticulously maintained and cared for.
The 2.3L engine runs like a sewing machine. It is backed by a 4 speed manual transmission.
Has cruise control.
This car starts, runs, drives and stops exactly as it should and without complaints. It is a very nice and very honest representation of a great Shay Roadster.
It has brand new alloy wheels and Pirelli tires on it. They are 235/70R16 in the rear, 205/60R16 in the front. They are five lug wheels. This is achieved by the use of wheel adapters in the rear and 5 lug rotors in the front. Included with the vehicle are the original 4 lug wheels and tires (also in very good condition) as well as the original 4 lug rotors for the front. This means you can change it back to stock in 30 minutes and it is a nice option to have if you feel like switching up the look of the car.
The paint is in very, very good condition. Any imperfections are from normal use and are so small they are hardly worth mentioning. There is no such thing as a "perfect" 38 year old car after all, but this really does come as close as it gets. The paint is in fantastic shape and shows brilliantly.
The top is in great condition as well, with no major defects. It operates as it is supposed to.
Also has full side curtains if you wanted to drive in the cold or rainy weather.
Has wipers, heater, AM/FM cassette player, etc.
The interior is in fantastic shape, I cannot think of a thing wrong with it. Same goes for the upholstery in the rumble seat area.
The luggage rack on the rear folds up when not in use, down to accommodate a trunk, also included and also in great condition.
The photos represent this car very well. It is truly an extremely nice car that runs and drives perfectly and needs nothing.
Clean and clear title.
Whoever buys this car will be very pleased with it. For additional photos of anything specific, video of it running, or whatever else, contact me through ebay and I will do my best to get you what you want to see. I am easy to deal with, but whoever buys this car needs to be prepared to:
A) Pay for it ($500 deposit via paypal, the rest we can discuss. Prefer cash in person or bank check)
B) Take it. I cannot store this vehicle for an extended period of time. I am out of room, this is why it's not staying with me any longer. Please be ready to take it within a reasonable amount of time.
If you are in the market for a fun, reliable toy to have fun with, this is a great ride. If you're looking for a Shay, you would be very hard-pressed to find a nicer example. No surprises, no BS. Just a really nice car with almost no miles.
