Picture yourself in the year 1980, going down to the local Ford dealership to buy your first new car. You eye the Pinto and Mustang as you enter the showroom, then see something in the corner of your eye. IT's a brand new Model A!?! How could this be possible? A gentleman by the name of Harry J. Shay founded the Model A & Model T Motor Car Reproduction Corporation in the spring of 1978, which allowed for these gorgeous reproductions. The name was changed to Shay Motors Corporation in November of 1980, where it would remain for a short period. This particular Shay Ford Model A for sale was fitted with an 88 horsepower 2.3 liter 4 cylinder engine. A smooth shifting 4-speed transmission backs it. It runs like a top and is barely even broken in. With a lightweight body of only 1,850 lbs, people have been known to average 30-35 MPG. The car handles like no other model A, with front disc brakes and a rack-and-pinion steering. Other options include manual convertible top, seat belts, and wire wheels with radial tires. Look at this car, and you'll have yourself thinking, "What a day, to go out in play, in my Model A, produced by Harry Shay, out in Tampa Bay." Which can be yours, TODAY! And, is just one call away.

1980 Shay Model A Replica

Engine: 2.3L I4
Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 16651 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars offers this 1980 Ford Shay. The Shay is a reproduction of the 1928 / 1929 Ford Model A. These cars were manufactured by the Shay Motor Company and were distributed by the Ford dealer network. Orders were taken by Ford dealers starting in 1978. The build was limited to 10,000 vehicles to avoid federal regulations. The original plan was for this to be the first of a classic series that would feature a different model each year. Built on the frame of a Pinto, the cars also shared a common powertrain the 2.3ltr 4 cylinder and automatic transmission. The Shay is a unique vehicle. It is not a Pinto and it is not a model A. They have developed a strong following over the years and even have a club of enthusiasts. It is a fun to own and a fun to drive car that can be bought for a modest price. You will have a hard time finding a car that will draw as much attention for the dollar as the Shay will. This one is finished in an Antique Cream with black vinyl interior. Side mounted spare tires and tall wide white wall tires give it the period correct look.
