1930 Ford Model A

Model Year History Overview:

Ford entered 1930 by giving its still popular Model A more in the way of major changes than it had the previous year.  Though basic styling remained the same, there were lower and wider fenders, a higher hood line, and stainless steel instead of nickel plate on the radiator shell and headlights shells and rims.  Ford also switched to balloon tires and decreased wheel diameter from 21 to 19 inches.  Running changes made during the year comprised a numerically higher steering ratio to reduce effort at the wheel and standardization of vacuum-operated windshield wipers.  It took Model A assembly about a year to hit full stride.  Once it did, Ford pulled ahead of Chevrolet in both the 1929 and 1930 production races.  Its output of 1,155,162 units in calendar year 1930 would be the best for the entire decade.  There was little change for 1931 aside from a painted section on top front of the radiator shell.
