1931 Model A Fordor Town Sedan

This was the actual 20 millionth car built by Ford. When Henry Ford's 20 millionth car, a 1931 Model A, toured the U.S., it raised a stir wherever it went. A parade in New York, celebrated Ford's milestone vehicle, and the vehicle was awarded a license plate stamped 20,000,000. Henry Ford produced 15 million Model T's, and just under 6 million Model A's. The 20 millionth Vehicle was thought to have been distroyed in a musuem fire late in the 1930's but was actually sold in the 1940's and taken to Michigan's upper peninsular where it sat "lost" in a garage until 2000. Ford has leased the vehicle for 10 years from the current owner and completely restored it. It was publically unveiled at Iola 2002. For more info see http://www.homestead.com/fordsa/20Mill.html.
