Default Ormond Beach, FL, Model A estate sale

Stumbled onto this ad that may have slipped under the radar. Lots of Model A stuff ... this weekend. Plenty of pictures.

Holy Mackerel !! That's a lot of parts. Coincidentally I was in central Florida last week looking at a semi truck full of Model 'A' parts that a guy was trying to sell. It was overwhelming.

I've always believed that Model A parts were fairly scarce in Florida. Not so, by the looks of this auction. If any of those gas tanks are good, it might be a good time to pick up a spare?

Figures - I’m out of the country for 10days. I live 2 hours south. I would like to buy a couple rims to practice spoke straightening. Think the ad said one day sale. That’s a lot of parts

Bud did accumulate lots of Model A parts during the past 50+ years but was one of the nicest persons you would ever want to meet.

I think that's an unfair statement, unless you personally knew the guy?


I'm not a parts hoarder but easily have that many parts. I own several old cars, and have restored several. That's how you get a parts accumulation like this.


Haven't you ever been to a swap meet, wanted one part in the box, but had to buy the entire box to get it?

Even if he was a hoarder, not saying he was, better than the parts getting junked and melted down, or in a landfill. Gives someone the chance to rebuild/reuse them.
