1930 Ford Model A DEPOT HACK

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION we have for sale a 1930 Ford Model A Woodie Hack. This type of vehicle were built in the day by after market companies. They were used as a hauler, some people called them depot hacks. This car is all steel and has a amateur restoration.

We bought it from a older man from Florence, Alabama. The story was that his friend that he went to church with got bad sick and the Model A was not drivin for a long time. He bought it just to help him out and did not even try to start it. The registration of title is Alabama.

We drained the gas, cleaned the carburater, cleaned the points and started the car. It had a hairline crack in the intake manifold so we welded it. I drove the car to the gas station about 1/2 mile and back. It has all the gears and shifter fine. The steering is very loose, I checked it and the steering gear is worn out, parts are easy to buy to fix it. The brakes work, Model A brakes are manual, no juice, so they are hard to push.

The paint does look good in the pictures, but it is weak. The old man painted over scratches and pits. The body looks all steel to me and seems solid to look at the under side. The top is in very good condition, tires usable, but old.

The wood looks real good to me, but could use a coat of varnish.

Original bumpers are in the back. The one on front is not original.

The front seats are not original, they look like Camaro.

Bottom line, this is just a good looking, but ruff Model A that is priced that way. It runs and drives, but needs things. Main thing it needs is the steering gear rebuilt. Look at the prices on these and you will see that it is priced fair.

Where is the car? Here in Athens, Tennessee 37303.
