1929 Ford Model A Pickup Truck

This Steel Body Truck is absolutely Pristine inside and out. The truck was completed about 6 years ago and has only been driven 5k miles since completion. The paint is amazing with a deep mirror shine and the undercarriage matches the top. I posted 60 photos in the description and they tell the whole story on this one! This truck was built to be able to drive wherever he wanted to attend various car shows. This one is powered by a 3.8L 229ci GM V6with Turbo-Hydramatic (THM200) 3-Speed Automatic Transmission. It has a 8.5" 10 bolt Rear End. It fires right up, idles smooth, pulls strong and shifts perfectly. The suspension rides soft and still allows great handling at 70mph. It drives straight down the road and also stops smooth with no pull (Disc Front/Drum Rear). Everything on this one works including Headlights, Turn Signals, Brake Lights, All Gauges, Heater, Windshield Wipers, and so on. This one does not need anything! Fly in and Drive Home or I can assist with shipping. Have Questions? Call Chris 330-990-6970

About The First Generation Ford Trucks:
Ford’s entry into the pickup truck world began in 1917 with the Ford Model TT one ton chassis. This truck proved to be a low cost, dependable means of transporting commodities for farmers and businessmen nationwide. While it was successful, Henry Ford saw the need for a lighter duty truck. In his desire to keep the price low, he designed a truck that would use most components of the upcoming Model A Ford passenger car. However, the Model A pickup was the first truck actually designed as a truck, rather than a reworked car.
On October 20, 1927, the first Model A passenger cars rolled off the assembly line at the Rouge Plant in Dearborn, Michigan. Built on the same line as Ford’s passenger cars, the Model A truck became a quick success. Initially, only the open cab truck was available. The cab, built by the Briggs Manufacturing Company, was designed with a non-retractable top and side curtains made of canvas. The closed cab model became available on August 28, 1928. It was more comfortable than the open cab version, with standard roll-up windows and improved weather protection for the occupants. When the 1929 truck was shown to the public, it had only minor changes, including exterior door handles on the open cab models and new exterior colors for buyers to choose from.
All sheet metal forward of the windshield was shared with the Model A passenger car. The grille shell and headlamp buckets, while the same design as the car, were painted black, as was the one taillight housing located on the driver’s side of the vehicle. Front and rear fenders and running boards were carried over from the Model A car. A front bumper was standard, while the rear bumper was available at an additional cost. All trucks included a spare tire located on the left front fender, tool kit and a hand operated windshield wiper.
The chassis was a carryover from 1928. The Model A pickup was considered a ¼ ton vehicle, but was beefed up with additional front and rear springs to add increased load capacity. But the price of the added capacity had it riding like a buckboard, especially over the rough roads of the time. Eleven-inch front and rear mechanical drum brakes stopped the truck adequately, as long as the brake rods were kept in proper adjustment.
Power came from the same engine used in the Model A passenger car. The 200ci, 40hp, flathead four-cylinder engine doubled the horsepower of the Model T truck. A new three-speed H pattern transmission replaced the multi-pedal shifting of the Model T, making the Model A truck considerably easier to drive. Power was more than adequate, and with a top speed of about 65 mph, quite peppy for those days.
During its four year run, the Model A truck proved to be a dependable and roadworthy commercial vehicle. Model year sales for 1929 tripled to 77,900 units. Today, these pickups have a large following among collectors.
