Perhaps one of the most iconic American cars of the 20s and 30s was the Ford Model A, the successor to the Model T, considered the first affordable car for the masses. The Model A was produced from 1927-1931 and was available in nine different models ranging from the coupe, sedan, wagon, convertible, and truck to name a few.
Ford eventually sold over 4.8 million units, which was a testament to its popularity to the middle class of America. Interestingly, the Soviet company GAZ, a collaboration between Ford and the Soviet Union, licensed the Model A from 1932-1936 and provided the basis for armored cars and trucks eventually used as scout vehicles in WWII. The flat-top, boxy body, and no-nonsense aesthetics echoed Henry Ford’s philosophy of minimal cosmetic frippery in exchange for everyday practicality.
