1928-1929 Open Model As - Factory Data

 
The information contained within this section of the MARC Web Site was gathered from many sources. The information in general reflects original Ford data and was the best information available at the time of collection. It is not intended to be all-inclusive nor does it reflect all design changes. The intent is to provide some factory photographs and general information regarding the Open Body Styles where that information is available. These pages will be periodically updated as additional information becomes available. For more detailed information refer to the “Restoration Guidelines and Judging Standards” available to the reader through the MARC Office.

1928 – 29 Phaeton 35A

NOTE: The following three pictures are believed to be different views of the same phaeton. I do not recall seeing the 2 side views elsewhere. With the 2 side views enlarged and enhanced a few features become apparent that this may be a preproduction or prototype. The pictures were most likely taken in the late fall of 1927. (F.P.)
