Refurbishing History

 

Other than the occasional black and white film, the only time you see an early 1900s classic car is either rusted and abandoned in a trash heap, or with shiny new paint as it cruises by you on the street. These pieces of the past never fail to cause the viewer to appreciate how fascinating it is to see one in good condition.

For car enthusiast Leonard Miller, refurbishing classic cars is a treasured hobby, but even with such an interesting subject, he’s humble about what he does to keep a piece of history in the present. “I do the small stuff—paint and odds and ends. It’s just a hobby,” Miller said.

After refurbishing his classic cars, Miller puts them back out on the market. Currently he has three classic cars ready for a new owner to appreciate their antique value.

Miller is selling a 1930 Ford Model A sedan with a 302 motor and Mustang running gear and a 1931 Ford Model A coupe with rumble seats and a working.

Production for the Ford Model A began in 1927 and ended in 1932 after almost five million were made. The first time Ford used conventional break and clutch petals, throttle, and gearshift was in the Modal A. It also is the first car to implement safety glass in the windshield.

Miller is also selling a 1919 Ford truck with a ½ ton stake bed. Ford jumped into producing trucks in 1917, after seeing how Model T’s were being recreated into trucks. Like other early Ford models, the Ford truck took off. As for 1919, it was an especially booming year due to the end of World War I.

To get your hands on one of these classic beauties contact Leonard Miller at (832)788-0730.
