"Everything You Want or Need in a Modern Automobile." Company advertising: After sales of the Model T plummeted in early 1927, the Ford Motor Company, then the world's largest producer of automobiles, shut down its assembly lines. After spending a reported 100 million dollars on the design and retooling of an all-new car, the Ford Model A was introduced in December 1927. The stylish new car featured twice the horsepower, and a simpler and less confusing three-speed transmission than that of the Model T. The Model A became an instant success and by the end of 1931, its final year of production, over five million had been sold.
Ford's star attraction for 1931 was the all-new Model A Convertible Sedan. It featured fixed side window frames, and a set of tracks mounted on top for raising and lowering the convertible top.
