All vehicle trades considered, including classics and performance. I can assist with financing and transport as needed.
I think every car aficionado should have a Model A. They let you travel back 90 years into automotive history, to a time when vehicles meant something much different than they do today. And with items like a floor starter, non-synchro transmission, column spark control, skinny tires, and a gravity feed fuel system it’s a whole different way of getting around.
This award winning 1929 pickup is a splendid example of the Model A experience. It has been through two restoration efforts, the first in 1981 and the second in 2003-2004. The body is all steel except for the rear fenders. It looks terrific with its red paint and yellow wheels along with the gorgeous wooden bed. The original style black top and visor are in great shape too. Same with the glass and the bumpers.
The non-original engine was fully rebuilt in 1981 and freshened in 2003. Note the truck is titled as a 1929 Ford and uses the replacement engine number as the VIN. It runs great with the usual Model A controls for choke, throttle, and spark. Upgrades include a leakless water pump and a 6V alternator. The 3-speed transmission was rebuilt as was the rear end. The mechanical brakes have also been redone and work surprisingly well.
The interior was completely redone too. The bench seat and door panels are finished in matching brown vinyl which looks sharp against the red dashboard and rear cab. The headliner is beautiful with its wooden slats across the black material. The chrome instrument panel is typical Model A with the exception of an aftermarket water temperature gauge. The headlights and brake light all work properly as does the old fashioned horn.
This is one of those classics that really makes people smile. It can be a lot of fun to drive as well. You might not take it to Home Depot for a load of drywall, but it remains the ancestor of today’s modern pickup and offers an automotive experience that everyone should have.
