She turned the world on with her smile and now you can turn on your business advertising or your collection with this Model A, formerly owned by actress Mary Tyler Moore with its updated V6 power plant. This one of a kind “woody” can be driven most anywhere at cruising speeds.
This Model A has a hand-crafted wood body and was originally built to use at the Lake George tourist area in upstate New York and then fully restored in 1991 for Mary Tyler Moore. It seats between eight and 10 people and would make a great tourist transporter with V6 power and automatic transmission. This truck was titled in Moore’s name as a 1984 Ford and the passenger side instrument panel bears her autograph and that title is still included with the current clean and clear Missouri title.
Dressed in green over black wings, the steel sections of this Model A are in overall excellent order, as are the wooden sections, which have been lovingly cared for through the decades with only very minor wear. The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the wagon’s two-tiered chrome bumpers look great. The roof is rubberized, there are dual cowl lights and two pairs of exterior sideview mirrors. There is a Boyce Motometer atop the radiator and a foldable external luggage rack out back.
Rolling on Lester wide whitewall bias-ply tires, size 6.00-16, each tire is mounted on a yellow factory wire wheel with chrome V8 center caps. There are two side-mounted spare tires mounted on two more yellow factory wire wheels. All wheels and tires are good original order. This Model A has an independent front suspension and a leaf spring rear suspension with air shock absorbers.
Under the vee’d hood is a Buick 231 CID V-6 with high-energy ignition (HEI) distributor. The motor is tied to a three-speed automatic transmission and backed by a Chevrolet rear end.
Inside, the brown leather interior is inviting. The foldable front seats and booth-like rear benches are all finished in leather and are in very good order, as is the brown carpet below. The wooden headliner above the seats is gorgeous. A modern Ford, four-spoke steering wheels rests on what appears to be a GM steering column, ignition switch and turn signal lever. The steering wheel and instrument panel are in excellent shape but the speedometer and fuel gauge are inoperable. A floor-mounted shifter for the automatic transmission completes the interior.
This modified Model A would make an ideal rolling billboard for a small business, especially if it involves tourism. If the next owner happens to be a Mary Tyler Moore fan, that would just be an extra bonus.
