1929 Ford Model A Type 150-A Station Wagon
The Ford Model A was produced from 1928 to 1931 and replaced the venerable Ford Model T. The standard engine was a water cooled, four cylinder that produced 40 horsepower and a top speed of 65mph.
By February 1929, one million Model A’s had been sold and by July of that year, two million. By March 1930, sales had hit three million and when production ended, more than 4.8 million Model A’s had been built by Ford in two states and eight countries. There were 35 body styles produced during this time, from a two door or four door, to a pickup or panel truck and everything in between.
This is a wooden bodied station wagon, dubbed the Type 150-A. It seated eight passengers or could carry cargo when seats were removed. In the early years, these vehicles were called “depot hacks”; “depot” since these vehicles were used to ferry passengers to and from the train depots; “hacks,” which was the term back then for taxi. Depot hacks were built for luggage to go in the very back of the vehicle with lots of room for passengers forward of the luggage area. It wasn't until many years later that the term “station wagon” started being used.
