Default Model A in italy made in the USA

Hello to all, I am new to this site. I have a 1930 Model A tudor Ford here in Italy. I would like to know if there are any other Model A owners in Italy, or Europe, who I can get in touch with to discuss either maintenance, or other topics dealing with a Model A Ford? Thank you for your time Ron

Hello there Hans @ Baltic. What do you know about registering an Antique Ford Model A in Europe.

Ciao Ron,

There are Model A's all over Europe....including several in Italy.

Do you know about the Museo "Ford Gratton" in the eastern edge of Italy? Here is the link: http://members.xoom.virgilio.it/norvegia/gratt_00.htm

It has been a while since I was there, but they had several Model A's on display at the time.

The museum's facade is a recreation of the Ford assembly plant that used to be in Italy (where Model A's were assembled at one time). Here is what the original one looked like:


....and the Museo "Ford Gratton" facade:


Here is the correct owners manual for your 1930 car:


....and your car in a 1930 sales brochure:


Ciao,

Thanks for the information. tried the site, it does not work for me. I will do a little looking on the net and maybe I can find the place. Is that owners manual for sale?
I bought my Model A in Maryland back in September 2016. shipped it over to Italy and still have not gotten the tags. Working on it. Perhaps this comping month all will be worked out and I can drive to Florence in the spring next year.

Ciao Ron,

Sorry the Owner's Manual is not for sale.

Here is a photo of the introductory brochure for Italy:



....and an Italian version of the Model A parts book:


You should go to the "Auto Moto d'Epoca" this weekend in Padova (https://autoemotodepoca.com ).


With some luck, you might find some Model A parts there, maybe....?
