Description
 
NEW PRICE! Older restoration but lightly used as promotional vehicle. Fresh Zenith carburetor, folding convertible top. Runs and drives like a Model A should.

This 1929 roadster pickup was restored about 15 years ago with the express intent of being a promotional vehicle for a logistics company. The commercial green paint has an honest shine that isn’t so glossy that you’re worried about it all the time, and it looks great going down the rod. It fits together well, the black fenders are shiny, and all the brightwork was finished in chrome instead of nickel for a bright look and low maintenance. The bed is filled with pretty refinished oak boards and those functional stake sides, and the lettering you see on them is comprised of decals, not paint, so you can remove it if you don’t like how it looks.

The interior is black leatherette on a simple bench, and the basic look is completely in line with the affordable Ford’s job. The dash will be familiar to anyone who has owned or driven a Model A, with a center-mounted instrument panel and hard rubber steering wheel. For some reason, the steering column was left in primer, but the rest of the interior is finished pretty much the way they were new. All the gauges work except for the odometer, so we can’t verify mileage, and the gauge panel is a quick shine away from looking like new. The original roadster pickups used lift-off cloth tops, which were just about as cheap as Henry could make them, but this one features a new Lebaron-Bonney folding top assembly that truly makes the roadster pickup work like you’d expect and a wonderful sunny day driver. And while it’s not shown, there is a rear window that was merely in the up position during the photo shoot.

Mechanically, there’s not much about the Model A’s four-cylinder engine that can go wrong. We recently installed a fresh Zenith carburetor to replace the aftermarket unit shown in photos, along with a new set of exhaust manifold gaskets, so it’s ready to run. It starts quickly and easily and runs the way all Model As should. Lots of torque, a happy exhaust note, and an eager feeling on the road are characteristic of the breed, and this one is no exception. Brakes are firm and do their job reasonably well and the suspension, while a little bouncy due to the pickup truck bed in back, feels rugged. The chassis was restored to drive, but it shows no signs of previous damage or rot, and all the factory-style equipment is still in place with no deviations. There’s light surface scale on the underside of the floors, which were left unpainted, and the correct exhaust system is a bit crusty, but there’s nothing that will keep this Model A from being a reliable and trusted friend for years to come. The wheels are standard 21-inch welded wires and they wear blackwall tires that look right on the commercial-grade truck.

Nicely sorted, recently tuned, and ready to enjoy, this is a value-priced roadster pickup that can be enjoyed immediately. Prices are on the move for these models, and with the folding top, there’s really no reason not to get out there and start having fun with one of the world’s most popular collector cars.
