For Sale: 1928 Ford 3-Window Coupe in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Trucks make great hotrods and this custom 1928 Ford Model A 3-Window Pickup offers all the same tricks as its roadster and coupe siblings with a big slice of practicality on the side. Featuring a super-cool Jack Daniels theme, this one-of-a-kind build separates itself from the crowd with gorgeous Teal Blue paint, a custom bed filled with precious cargo, an unreal bespoke interior, and a 350/350 powerplant that's been dialed-in to hit the road. Show-or-go, they don't get more interesting than this, nor are they typically this beautifully executed and turn-key ready.

Bright Teal Blue livery suits the jaunty little pickup bodywork just fine, and we're glad that none of the upright boxy shape has been cut, chopped, or otherwise modified. That's not to say that this truck doesn't have a few tricks up its sleeve though - with that wicked stance, exposed engine bay, and custom bed out back. The distinctive Model A grille and hood (complete with removable side panels) are neatly rounded and butt up against that upright cab for a wonderful antique look, while the tan vinyl roof top, the cab visor, and those swooping fenders and running boards are all original-style design elements, but when coated with that gorgeous Teal Blue paint, the truck looks much more contemporary. The impressive, top driver-quality finish likely has a lot to do with that, as does the truck's raked stance and flashy wheels, but nevertheless we simply love the look. The shiny bumper, King Bee style headlights, and hood ornament start the party up front, while out back the diminutive bed has a whole lot going for it - decorative 'stake' rails up top, a gorgeous woodbed and chrome slats on the floor, and a genuine Jack Daniels oak barrel strapped inside. Man, what a sweet hotrod!

The interior was fully upgraded with the Jack Daniels theme as well, starting with comfortable bucket seats upholstered in tan hides with black alligator inserts. Custom door panels were finished to match, complete with 'Old No. 7' branding, plush brown carpeting covers the floor, and the inside of the cab and kick panels was lined with tan upholstery. The headliner is certainly worth a longer look, where noting short of a stereo magician mounted a custom stereo system complete with black alligator skins around speaker enclosures, and a wood center panel that houses a set of dome lights and a modern JVC head unit. The custom dash continues the trick theme - where chrome, woodgrain, and leather come to meet - and it's been filled with a host of Classic Instruments gauges, switches/controls finished with Jack Daniels bottle caps, and an R134a A/C system. A wood-rimmed steering wheel was mounted atop a polish tilt column to add a little more room for the driver, and there's a B&M shifter in the floor that manages the automatic transmission below. It may seem a bit wild inside at first, but once you settle in it's easy to see that this '28 was built for comfort.

The engine is a tried-and-true 350 V8 Goodwrench crate engine that's properly dressed for duty. Polished pieces are used throughout to make it sparkle, and anything that wasn't polished or detailed was treated to gold accent paint, including those trick Edelbrock valve covers. The accessories are pulled in tight to the block, so it all fits pretty neatly under the hood, and it's fed by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and augmented with aluminum heads and a lopey cam inside. The suspension has been upgraded front-to-back and features a 4-link and coilovers in the rear, so this little truck actually handles quite well, and with a proper TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and 10-bolt rear end it can handle all the horsepower with ease. And for a little added rumble, shorty headers feed a dual exhaust featuring Flowmaster mufflers that sound fantastic. It's got exactly the right stance, too, wearing flashy American Racing Torque Thrust wheels wrapped in staggered 205/40/17 front and 275/50/17 rear performance radials.

Clean, quick, fun, and with an awesome theme, this '28 pickup is a great way to cruise in style. Call now!
