This 1930 Ford Model A Pickup is a distinct and detailed classic.
It has a full period-correct feeling that makes a Sunday drive feel
like going back in time.
The black paint represents its era nicely with an aged-in style
that will make some people think you have a nearly 90-year survivor
without ever asking. And the full look is complete with the roof
and windshield overhang done in vinyl. But the real standout comes

engine. Just like the exterior, you have some fun accessories,
including the classic oiler mounted on the firewall. It runs with
the robust Ford feeling, the three-speed manual transmission shifts
as it should, and the four-wheel mechanical brakes are surprisingly
effective given the Model A's light weight.
This is a true classic style with a true classic feeling. So if
you're looking for a truly vintage pickup, you need to call
