Model A sports

An advert from 1930 for the current record holder from Sydney to Bourke.
The car has been restored. Not sure who owns it now.

Re: Model A sports

Notice the Model A Roadster used a 3.1 ring and pinion. I wonder where they got that?

Re: Model A sports

Don't know about the diff.

It is a true sports not a roadster.

There were three built all the same. All survived in various states and this one was rebuilt.
I have seen it in a garage once. It was later up for sale.

Maybe someone has a photo?

Found some photos.

This is what a Model A Sports looks like from the showroom floor.
Just right for building that 100 pointer ...

Judging by the number of sports of all makes that turn up in old photos here, they were a popular body style.
