This 1931 Ford Model A pickup plays a cool game of "What if..."
After all, we know how cool the Harley-Davidson package was on the
more modern F-150. But this fresh build imagines what it would look
like had the two teamed up decades earlier at the dawn of the
This one really holds quite true to an idea about being something
different without straying too far from period-correct. The result
is something quite thoughtful. One of the best ways to see this is
in the color theme. The base for the Harley-Davidson style is easy
with a glossy black. But this one makes sure it looks extra
attractive with professional application and a build that has less
than 1k miles on it. The silver is integrated by using it to accent
the Model A's natural body lines, and while the wire wheels often
came in different colors, you can instantly tell these are in H-D
orange. They didn't chop the top or add fat tires because that
would be more of the post-war kind of customizing. Instead, this
build puts the fresh motor on display to add extra flair (more on
that in a moment.) And it's under this kind of theme that you also
still have all the best vintage details, like a vinyl roof cover,
windshield overhang, and terrific-looking lumber in the truck
There's plenty more Harley-Davidson inside. The door panels and
headliner are embossed with the H-D logo. And the seats look
terrific with bold orange inserts and the full color logo stitched
into the seatbacks. We have a receipt documenting $3k spent just
for this custom interior style. This has nice features like plush
carpeting and Ultraleather upholstery. But just like the exterior,
they didn't go overboard with upgrades so that it keeps a
period-correct feeling. That's why you have the four-spoke steering
wheel, tall shifter, and bright vintage dash panel.
All Model As, even the trucks, got the same four-cylinder engine,
but there is a reason why this one is always on display. It looks
terrific with the cool finned aluminum head that makes this look
like the air-cooled H-D motorcycle powerhouses. And within this
bright and clean style are well-integrated power upgrades like a
touring cam, a Weber dual-barrel carb, and Reds header. There are
also the right upgrades for a better driver like an alternator and
an electric fuel pump. This now also has a four-speed manual
transmission with synchronized gears for easy cruising. These may
be upgrades for a more useful pickup, but overall, it never loses
that classic Model A feeling. And as you look underneath, the
silver paint on the chassis and suspension is a particularly nice
touch that ties in more of the color theme and also reminds you how
fresh this build is.
This is a highly documented professional restoration. In fact, we
have a large receipt file showing about $70k invested in this
unique restoration. So if you love classic Harleys and/or pure
classic Americana, you know this "What if..." is absolutely
awesome. Call today!!!
