Drawing of a 1930 Ford Model A Standard Coupe

Summary

The Ford Model A received its first major styling updates with the 1930 model year. The deeper radiator shell and wider fenders were obvious changes, while the smaller wheels and larger tires subtly made the car look lower. Six new body styles were added including the DeLuxe Phaeton which, with its genuine leather interior trim, carried an air of luxury.
