Anyone in the Manawa/Fox Valley WI area?
My father recently passed away and my mom needs a little help with his ‘64 GT Hawk and I’m 1,000 miles away in Colorado.
She told me she recently went to start it and something sparked and she immediately shut it off. Is there anyone “nearby” that could help my mom with the car?

Thanks,
Kyle

Here's a link to a good Model A website, and many Model A owners are pretty good with other older cars. I'll post your question on this website to see if anyone is close.

If she saw sparks when she went to start it, the ignition switch probably came loose and was shorting out (I assume that she saw the sparks while seated in the driver's seat and with the hood closed.).
