Ford Displays Oldest Model A In The World — 2013 Detroit Auto Show
The Ford Motor Company mixed old with new by displaying the oldest surviving Ford Motor Company car in the world in the entrance to their display area. The car is one of the first three Model A’s ever built. The other two original Model A’s are no longer in existence.
The car has only had six owners in it’s 109 year life, with the Ford Motor Company being the latest and probably last owner of the vehicle. It was purchased at a cost of $264,000, which was a dramatic drop in price from it’s $693,000 price tag in 2007. That is a $692,120 increase over it’s original price, which is estimated at $880 when sold in. Built in 1903 along with 2 other copies of the car, the Model A became the first production car ever to be produced by Ford Motor Company.
