1929 Ford Model A Pickup
The Ford Model A can be found in many iterations: coupe, to a
roadster, to a sedan to a pickup. Henry Ford had a solid base in
the Model A and appeased the masses with various options on that
frame. Also, as with many older versions of cars, so many visual
customization modifications have been done, that the original
showroom look has been long gone.
In the case of this car though, mostly original intent as well as
actual visual parts to this build, have been retained. The
beneficiary of an older restoration and having the opportunity to
rest in his father's garage for the last 20 years, this truck
presents nicely. it shows some aging, but for an 80-year-old truck,
it's in very good condition.
With its body utilitarian design, straight panels bathed in green
and nice fenders covered in black it all comes together as a
pickup. Overall paint has its faults with some rust spots
particularly near the glass filler and hood hinges, and single
annoying bubbles throughout, but it classified as fair to good. An
older restored oak bed has aged nicely and is held together with
metal rails running the length of the bed. Simple black wire wheels
can be seen through to drum brakes painted black and chromed hub
cover. A black vinyl visor and top is seen over the cab.
The non-perforated version of hardboard with a thin coat of black
spray makes up the door panels. An older red leather bench
stretches across the small cab. In the center of the green painted
metal dash is the Ford "mask" style gauge cluster, and to its stage
left is the original steering wheel which has been wrapped with a
tape like product. On the floor is a simple rubber floor mat that
is fairly clean.
4-cylinders in the 201ci form pump out 40hp. A 1-barrel carburetor
is atop, and a 3-speed manual transmission is on the back.
All nicely preserved with no surface rust in sight. Slight water
staining on the underside of the bed boards, but the wood is still
good! Nice green paint, and black accenting make for a well-done
undercarriage. A stainless-steel exhaust system has been
This truck drives like a truck! No power steering, power brakes,
and simple suspension, which is part of its charm, and is certainly
not meant to be negative. Overall good condition, and considering
it sat for a while, it probably could use a fresh tank of gas. An
