Collector's Originality Guide Ford Model A

Collector's Originality Guide: Ford Model A is the definitive guide to one of the greatest cars in American history: The Ford Model A.

And this much-hyped car delivered exactly what the public wanted: a solid, reliable, up-to-date--and beautiful--new car. Naturally, this car became an instant classic, and has been a favorite among collectors and restorers for decades.In this paperback reissue of the highly popular hardcover book, author and photographer Jim Schild walks through all of the details of the Model A's four-year production, providing collectors with everything they need to know to identify, classify, and restore these fabulous cars. Filled with gorgeous color photography, this book has been and continues to be a must-have for all Model A fans.

This is a good reference book as well as a fun book to look through. Full of large, good quality color photos of almost all the Model A variants. The photos show various exterior and interior details along with providing specific information like exact paint colors and fabric details. The text provides a wealth of technical details but don’t let that put you off if you’re not looking for that. The color photos alone are enough of a reason to buy this book.I noticed that another reviewer posted that they had received/purchased the “Collector's Originality Guide: Ford Model A” and that it was the wrong book. My paperback copy was published by (2003, 2009) and inside the cover there is a note that says "Originally published in hardcover as Original Ford Model A". I hope this helps another buyer decide which book to buy and prevents someone from purchasing two different versions of the exact same book.

This is an excellent book on the Ford Model A. It includes almost every model and variation with bright, vivid color photos and accurate descriptions. If you are new to Model A's and want to learn about the various models, this book is for you. If you a familiar with the Model A and want to learn about original factory colors, trim and options, this book is an excellent choice. Well worth the price for any Model A guy or gal.
