Sold! 1929 Model A Roadster Pickup Truck in great rust free all steel, running condition. This truck was sitting in a secure garage for well over a year, not driven. I was skeptical that it would even turn over. To my surprise it not only turned over easily but fired up almost immediately, running smoothly. After checking all fluid levels which were all up to standards, I drove it 55 miles home without any incident. A very respectable all steel rust free Roadster pickup. The paint has a few flaws noticeable at 10ft which some may buff out and others require touch up. This is definitely a vehicle dependable for weekend enjoyment and local shows. Have all paperwork for hassle-free registration. For additional information or questions call Keith Kloter at 860-836-7935. Asking $14,900 or best offer. I have several other Model A's which can be viewed at www.oldantiquecars.com
