1929 Ford Model A RPU Roadster Pickup
1929 Ford Roadster Text
This 1929 Ford Roadster pickup reads like an all-star list of the pieces you want. After all, the Henry Ford steel has been given a fantastically coordinated appearance, a triple-deuce V8, and a modern five-speed stick shift to keep this classic ahead of modern traffic.
This is exactly how you picture the perfect hot rod. There's just something aggressive about an industrial-grade matte black that has its best elements highlighted in a contrasting white. Plus, the red accents on the grille, frame, and all that pinstriping give this a terrific standout presence.
Even the wheels with whitewalls follow this color scheme for a very thoughtful and fully coordinated package. The lowered body has that great classic stance, the real wood bed adds some very desirable pickup charm, and even the hood ornament is thumbing its nose at society. This is old school rodding at its finest.
The interior has been just as carefully crafted to be comfortable without betraying the minimalist attitude. The red seat, black panels & carpeting, and white dash means the same exterior colors return here as part of the well-coordinated presentation. And we know you love the custom touches like the dice door pulls and the tall 8-ball gearstick. You'll also be impressed by the cool classic Ford touches like the DeLuxe wheel and Model A gauge cluster. But once you spot that the large tach is the only readout in front of the driver, you're instantly reminded that this custom build was made to be driven.
We know you've been staring at that motor this whole time, and so will everyone else. This is a show-ready package that's boldly bright with the Offenhauser valve covers, intake, alternator, water pump, and so much more polished to a mirror-like shine. And do you see how the white headers match the firewall? So you want to make sure there's enough room in the pickup bed to carry home all the awards just for presentation alone. But beyond just the flash, this is a fully built 350 cubic-inch V8 that's topped with an iconic set of three Rochester dual-barrel carburetors. And while it fires up like an angel, the sound out of the side pipes is downright devilish. But power is nothing without control, that's why you're in complete command of the sound and fury of the enhanced V8 with the five-speed manual transmission. This total package is backed up by the right components, such as a Ford 9-inch rear end, upgraded brakes, and a coil spring rear suspension with new shocks.
We're not the only ones who admire this Ford, because there's even a Hot Rod magazine story on it. So it's amazing you can get an all-eyes-on-me kind of custom like this for such an obtainable price. But that's only true if you hurry to grab this deal.
