Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer in our showroom a rare, 1980 Shay Model A! This Black with Yellow Accents beauty is an eye-catcher. The yellow wheels really stick out with the whitewall tires. It's an excellent collectible. These vehicles were produced from 1979 to 1981 and could ONLY be ordered at your local Ford dealership. 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 manual transmission backs it. It runs like a top and is barely even broken in with only 18,374 miles on it. 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.
