Description

This is a 1930 Ford Model A Fordor "Town Car"; the very top of the line for 1930 Fords. He (yes) is named Black Bart. Riding in this car is like riding in your own personal parade. Young or old, Bart just makes everyone smile and wave. We are the 4th owner of this car.

The car wears its original black lacquer paint so you will notice the occasional imperfection but rest assured, Bart cleans up really nicely. The paint is shiny and accented by a handsome red pinstripe. The chrome is bright and the car is dressed up just a bit with the stainless-steel rock guard covering the radiator and the visors over the headlights.

You may be wondering about the name. He's named Black Bart because he's just a little rough around the edges. Don't get me wrong, he's an extremely well-preserved car and perfectly reliable. But over the years he has seen some upgrades that make him just a bit more "aggressive" than a factory stock car. Among them:
- Upgrade to 12-volt electric system allowing for modern accessories
- Modern-type shock-absorbers
- Wider wheels to accommodate radial tires
- Sealed-beam headlights for better night-time safety
- High-performance intake & exhaust
- 2-barrel Webber carburetor
- Air conditioning
- Mitchell overdrive unit for lower-RPM cruising

Yes, over the years some sacrifices in originality have been made in the name of reliability, performance, comfort and most of all safety. But that does not at all detract from the fact that Bart is every bit an antique car. In fact, this makes him all the more willing to join in on an adventure. It may surprise you to know that this very car has not only traveled across the United States, but has also toured Europe with his previous owner.

Important notes about this car:
This car does not drive like a modern vehicle. It is a time-capsule of the driving experience from years gone by. Drivers MUST be proficient with manual (stick shift) transmission. The main thing is to please adhere to speed limits and posted signs. If a curve ahead sign notes 35 MPH, pay attention! Your modern car can go much faster and stop more quickly. Just be mindful you're driving an antique and you'll have a great time.

- Top speed: 55 MPH
- Gearbox is manual, non-synchronized. It does not shift like a modern car.
- Steering is manual, no power assist, but very light and easy to maneuver.
- Brakes are mechanical, non-hydraulic, no power assist.

Given the above, we highly recommend that trips not be scheduled that involve distances greater than 50 miles from the car's home in the 75023 zip code.

Bart says "let's go!"

“As a car enthusiast and caretaker of the family fleet, I've enjoyed the car hobby since before I was old enough to drive. Special cars put smiles on faces of folks whether they're "car guys" or not. I like the DriveShare concept because it allows people from various backgrounds to enjoy a special car without having to make the investments in time and finances. Let's get some classic iron out on the road!”
