1929 Model A

Ford Garage

Taxi Cab

One of the more unusual Model A body styles is the relatively rare Taxi.

The taxi was a special Briggs bodied Fordor sedan (135-A) based on the 1928-29 Coupe and Tudor pillar post cowl.

The Taxi was the only Model A Fordor sedan to use the unstyled cowl. All other 1928-29 Fordor sedans used the styled cowls from Briggs and Murray.

This one above is shown in service and in good condition.

Well used and abused!

Pictured above is the 1929 Ford taxi which belonged to Jane-Ann Heitmueller's Uncle Henry. When he passed away, his wife and daughter sold it to Mitchell Motors Ford Dealer in Cullman, Alabama around 1956. The family had always heard that the dealer had then sold it to The Ford Museum (in Dearborn?). Anyone know more?
