Model A Ford needed for a movie

Mon Sep 10, 2012 9:26 pm

My brother in law makes documentaries. He is making one now about an astronaut. One of the scenes will be in a garage with an old Model A inside (not a fancy restored version). Since my BIL lives in England, he doesn't know where to find a car for shooting the scene, so he asked me where he could find one. I didn't know either, so I'm asking on the forum.

Here's his comments:
"Basically, for one scene in the film we need to film a Model A Ford in a garage / workshop. (It was a first car)

Will need to double check the precise model variant, but it ideally wants to be in a state of restoration or not perfect rather than museum condition. It kinda wants to look like it's been on a farm for ten years!

I figured there may be some vintage Ford owners club or something that might have a database of cars / owners around the USA? If so, I'm looking to track one down that we could hire to light and shoot for a couple of hours in any of the places we plan to be filming:

Houston
Austin
Cape Kennedy
Pensacola
Washington DC
Tucson
Phoenix
San Diego

Any thoughts suggestions welcome!"

So, does anyone know of a car that would be available in one of the cities listed above? Or know of a group that would have the connections?

John,
Check out Mike's in Maysville. He restores only model A's He has a large place very close to Maysville. I don't know him but it might be worth a shot. Mike's Model "A" 's should be in the phone book or maybe on line.

My uncle has a 29 closed cab pickup. It is definately not finished with it's restoration. The mechanicals are done, but the body is a mix of the best parts we have been able to locate.
