This 1930 Ford Model A Tudor saloon has been owned by our vendors family since 1996.  Looking through the paperwork that accompanies the car, it can be seen that the Ford has led an interesting and well travelled life. Although little is known about its early years, in 1976 the Ford was owned by a Carl Breaux from Lafayette, Louisiana in the USA. A newspaper article in the history file, dating from 1989 shows that this car was purchased by a Mr Labib Arafat, a Palestinian-American in the late 1970's and he was the third owner. It is reported that the original owner was a member of the Capone family in New York. Mr Arafat exported the Ford to the UEA with him in 1986. Imported to the UK in 1991 and UK registered in 1997. Although running and driving, it has been stored for most of the past twenty years so some recommissioning will be required. Has V5, USA title, UEA paperwork
