1929 Shay Ford
Chuck McDonald of Rockville Md. owns this beautiful Shay Model A Ford.
The car built by Harry Shay’s company is a replica of the popular 1929
Ford Model A Roadster. They were built between 1979 and 1982 and sold
throughout the USA by Ford dealers.
The cars were advertised as: “Last of the Model A’s, limited production,
sold by Ford, factory built and warranted by Ford Motor Company.”
These cars were not built on an assembly line but were built by teams of
four men working on a single car at a time. Each team could produce two
cars a day. Shay manufactured five different body styles,and either twin,
left or rear spare mount. For more information on the Shay Ford, read this term paper written by his grandson, Nathan Shay.
