  • Model A Ford price trends 2018

    I came across this, kind of interesting.

    Looks like the '30-'31's are doing OK over all especially the '31's. Better than your money sitting in a regular savings account in the bank. Not so much the '28-'29's.

    That disparity between the 28-29 to the 30-31 just does not seem right. For the average A those numbers seem inflated a tad..

      They also don't know their Fords from "other" cars!

    I wonder where they are getting their sales price numbers. I understand that is supposed to be an average, but it seem quite high compared to what I see in various publications and online sites.

      I hope the tax assessors are not seeing that unrealistic pricing.

          I know that Paul. I was thinking of people in Taxachusits and similar states.

        I wonder if it the relatively large number of 400As and Phaetons for 1931 that are running 40K-50K+ that are now for sale. Those prices listed seem to be what I am seeing in Hemmings but in MARC/MAFCA for sale sections, I am not seeing those numbers. I guess those numbers are good for people that own them but it makes it hard for others to purchase one - do I want a 50K Phaeton that is almost 90 years old, mostly stock, or do I want a restomod 1967 Mustang or Camero? One of the reasons I purchased my 31 S/W was that it was not 30K+, unique, less wood and easy to work on.

          CarGurus tracks the prices of millions of used car listings every year. Find out if Ford Model A prices are going up or down and how they have changed over time.

          This is rather misleading as it does not use the actual sale prices to determine trends. I suspect that the majority of A sales are private party deals. How many of you would volunteer what you were paid for a Model A you sold? I thought so.

            It's a little like going on E-Bay to see what everyone is asking for their Model A's. The Buy it now, or even the asking price can be what ever the owner thinks his car is worth. The real test is to go to "Completed Listings"
            and see what sold, and for how much. I also like loging on the Mecum Auctions site - do a search on past auctions for a particular year, and you can see what they bring. I also check with my local folks and find they buy a lot of bargains - some that need work - but most are more in the $5000 and up range.

              Although it seems like GOOD Model A Fords have been bringing good money at the Mecum sales. And, especially the '30-'31's for some reason. Concerning the Roadsters from that time slot, I have been told they cost more to restore than a '28-'29 Roadster so maybe that has something to do with it too. Often more than what I would want to pay but there is still an interest in the cars from somebody.

              The recent sale up in Schaumberg (near Chicago) had a fairly good number of A's for sale.

                There were less 31's made and all things be equal those rare A400 etc likely made the 31's pricey​​​​​​.

                  Bring a Trailer publishes "sold for" prices. One problem with the statistics, in my view, is that the hot rodded cars are reported in the same group as historically accurate cars. They should have a separate category for chopped cars. Maybe we could call it the Butchered Shop.

                    Here’s another source of prices:

                    It’s funny though; I’ve had my Tudor listed at what seems to be a good (and average) price for many months and I’m not even getting nibbles.

                        I listed my old man's 1930 fordor blindback on CL that is absolutely ready to drive anywhere (it had just made the trip to Reno and back at time of listing), and no nibbles at all on it. Figured we would wait until spring and try again.

                        I've sold a few A's that I owned,but a lot of them for other people.Craigslist is probably the least successful place I have found.Lots of car guys on there,but more of the,I want to buy it for a hot rod types.I really don't like selling long distance.I want people to look,put their hands on it,they can walk away with nothing but a little ride wasted.I've really had the best luck with Hemmings,and putting the car on the side of the road.28-29 Tudors take a long time to sell.For some reason the 30-31 cars seem to move faster,I know I like them a little better.

                          Ive sold a few A s over the last few years and tudors are the hardest to get any money for. They made a heck of a lot of them for starters.
                          rodders tend to prefer the 30-31 cars and why I believe those years are pulling much stronger. Also, the 28-29 cars look more antiquated, which I like, but dont seem to be in the majority.

                            About 40% of the A's in the Sierra Chapter, Fresno/Clovis CA, of M.A.F.C.A. have had engines replaced with Pintos (and others) to get AC and higher cruising speeds with better fuel mileage. Most of them, if'n you look past the 16's with radials and hydraulic brakes, look "original". Yesterday I looked at a 1930 Blindback that fits this description. Without the modifications it would be...

                            Watched a two hour DVD that combined several Ford films on the introduction of the Model A and how it was built. However, the real interesting segment was on the dealership, service and financing. We all know that Ford controlled everything from raw materials to the final product. What was news to me was the financing and insurance that Ford provided to buyers through the dealership. While today's...

                            This is a good book for all you Ford fans if you are looking to pass some winter weather time indoors. Some neat points they make in the book, in relation to Model A Fords, was the story of 'how' the Model A came about (we've all heard it still interesting) but also later Alan Mullaly makes reference to how they pulled Ford out of the brink of disaster after he took over in Sept. 2006, akin to what...

                            I look at cars for sale on Craigs List every week, and it seems to me that local prices for Model A's have gone up about 20% over the last year, across the board, for all conditions. Are you seeing anything similar in your region? Disclaimer: I have never bought a Model A, in over 55 years in the hobby, with the intent that I would make money on it.

                            by H. L. Chauvin
                            This 2018 New Year's Day, be sure to do your part in not allowing your Model A to overheat ..... maintain proper coolant levels at "all" times.

                            Don't retard your spark for long periods because this can cause your Model A to overheat; and also, easy on the brakes, they generate heat.

                            Remember to lower the winter inside temperature in your Model A garage and in...
