The first version of the 1930 Ford Model A Victoria was made in Canada. Done in maroon with black roof and fenders, is the rarest one with a quantity of only 10 produced. The other Canadian versions are found in brown and in olive green, with white roofs and black fenders. English production are found in olive, beige, tan and in various green shades with cream roofs. License plates, only on rear, are yellow and wheels can be white, cream and tan. All have metal tyres, except for the last ones produced which have plastic tyres. This model was deleted in July 1985 and the last 250 pieces had a certificate confirming this fact.
