You are looking at a 1979 Shay. This is a factory made fiberglass replica authorized by Ford to be sold in their dealerships, that were made to look like a 1929 Ford Model A. I recently found this Shay sitting in a private collection for some time. I did provide a video of it running in this auction that I shot today, but I will still be listing it as a non running project. The car does have its original 4 Cylinder Ford motor, and its original 4 speed manual trans. There is a clear title for it, and it is titled as a 1979 Shay Convertible. There are disk brakes in the front and drum in the rear. Here is a little history of the Shay. "Harry J. Shay founded the Shay Motors Corporation in 1978 , and had a great deal worked out with Ford. The plan was to send at least one car to every Ford dealership across the USA. Ford got publicity and attracted customers to its showrooms and Shay got access to an extraordinary distribution network. The cars were sold by Ford dealers, factory-built, and warranted by Ford Motor Company. This might have been the only time a major auto manufacturer participated in the reproduction of a famous car out of its past. Ford waived design patents for its Model A so that the Shay Roadster could be built. Ford supplied the platform, Shay manufactured the cars and Ford, Mercury and Lincoln dealers sold them."
