Searching for 1929 Tudor A1880014


March 21 - We had an inquiry from a member who is looking for a 1929 Tudor Sedan that his grandfather purchased in 1929 from Leadbetter Motors in Detroit, West Vernor Highway at Vinewood. His father is the baby held by his grandmother in the photo at right.

The car was purchased on July 8, 1929 for $525 plus accessories: $15 for bumpers, $12.50 for spare tire and tube, $8 for gas and oil, $13.55 for tax and title for a total of $579.15. The family still has the sales receipt!

Our member wonders if the car still exists. so if you have a 1929 Tudor, check to see if the serial number is A1880014. If you know where it is, please contact the webmaster and I will put you in touch with the grandson.

March 13 - Jim Spawn, editor of The Restorer magazine has just completed a visit to Havana Cuba, shown here with Dr. Nelys Leal Navas. She owns a 1929 Ford Phaeton that has been in her family since the 1930's.

Dr. Nelys became our first Cuban MAFCA member and Jim presented her with our "This Lady Drives A Model A" patch.

Watch The Restorer for a thorough report on Jim's Cuban adventures and the Model A hobby there.
