1931 Ford Model A Panel Truck
The Ford Model A can be found in many iterations: coupe, roadster,
sedan, pickup and even sedan delivery. The Model A appeased the
masses with affordable pricing and various body options all on that
frame. While many of these automobiles have gone thru mild to
excessive customization losing their showroom original look, some
carry on in the form that Henry Ford's design team envisioned.
Restored at one point, used, then safely tucked away, this 1931
Ford Model A Panel Delivery Truck has come to grace our hallowed
halls here at the Classic Auto Mall. Replete with battle scars
dutifully earned possibly from working the oil fields in Texas we
give you this piece of working Americana.
With the main body covered in an off shade of white floating over
red running boards with worn rubber and red fenders this old A is
all there including Texaco badging on the doors and "The Texas
Company" on its flanks. Dings, dents, chips, and surface rust are
present but minimal invasive rust is showing. Discolored headlights
float atop a thin red bar that fronts the chrome trim surrounded
radiator. A twin cowled hood sits in front of a flat windshield,
and a black vinyl roof covering tops off this piece of history.
Tarnished and rusted chrome bumpers hang at each end of this truck
with the front showing some twisting. 19" steel wire wheels sit on
all for corners and have small chrome hubcaps. 4.75/5.00-19 rubber
wraps said wheels and a spare of the same sits on the front of the
driver side running board.
Spartan and utilitarian is the motif for the interior. Worn window
cranks and door handles front the black door panels with the driver
side being the worst as 2/3rds of it is missing. Twin off blue
vinyl covered bucket seats hover over a replacement wood floor that
has twin sticks protruding, one for the gear shift and the other
for the parking brake. A worn black 4-spoke steering wheel which
contains the spark advance control lever and hand throttle fronts a
simplistic steel dash. A ribbed aluminum cloverleaf sits front and
center showing the speedometer, ignition, fuel gauge, and ampere
gauge. A single rear door swings open to reveal white side panels
and a wood lined floor that is ready to haul all your oil field
Swing open the twin cowled hood and feast your eyes upon 201ci of
4-cylinder cast iron in flathead form. Topped with a 1-barrel
carburetor and backed by the correct non-synchronized 3-speed
manual transmission all is well and good here.
A strong steel frame showing only surface rust supports a replaced
wooden floor. Transverse leaf springs are standard issue suspension
both front and rear along with mechanical drum brakes at all four
corners. The underside of the running boards present with surface
rust and the only noteworthy invasive rust is at the bottom of the
spare tire holder.
A good barn find with all the pieces accounted for. A blank canvas
for your inner artist to mold and shape into your own. Come on down
to the Classic Auto Mall and feast your eyes on this piece of
history that could be your next project to love and caress.
