Franklin Mint / 1930 Ford Tudor Pebble Beach / Limited Edition 4,500 / FM DISCONTINUED / 1:24th Scale
Blue & Black
| This is the fifth annual
issuance in what has become known as the Pebble Beach series. Formally,
Franklin Mint calls it "The 2000 Special Event Limited Edition Ford Model
A Tudor". As the Certificate of Authenticity states, the model
commemorates both 2000 events where the model first becomes available; the
August 16-20, 2000 Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance and the Franklin Mint
Auto Festival held September 10, 2000. Befitting the FM Auto Festival
theme, "Millennium Milestones", the Model A was an instant success,
filling the big shoes of the Model T that it so aptly replaced.
Essentially a repaint of the standard tu-tone green and black Tudor, this color combination is much more conservative. The color combination is one more likely to have been seen in 1930. Fundamentally a black automobile, the center bodywork boasts a deep blue paint job. The effect is soft, subtle and at once, elegant. For contrast, the car uses a bright red-orange body accent stripe and follows up with sharply photo-etched wire wheels of the same color.
