1903 Ford Model A up for auction

Sept. 8, 2012 at 4:27 PM

HERSHEY, Pa., Sept. 8 (UPI) -- A 1903 Ford Model A, one of the oldest surviving cars made by Ford Motor Co., will be up for auction in Hershey, Pa., officials said.

The car, scheduled to be auctioned Oct. 11 by RM Auctions, is expected to fetch $350,000 to $500,000, The Detroit News reported.

Carlton Pate III, an antique car collector and author of Pate's Early Ford Automobile Encyclopedia, said the Model A up for auction is one of the oldest Ford cars ever sold, but cannot be called the oldest, because there was at least one other car shipped the same day.

The car comes with extensive documentation which details condition and history, including its five owners.

RM Auctions said the car, which originally sold for $850, has all of its original early features, including the rare Kingston carburetor and the original coil box stamped No. 30.
