1929 Ford Model A Pickup

Trucks make great hot rods and this 1929 Ford Model A pickup offers all the same tricks as its roadster and coupe siblings with a big slice of practicality on the side. With a Ford steel body and 'glass fenders, t has a wonderful old-school look and with reliable small block V8 power, t's entertaining on the road. Lots of fun in a great package!Bright red suits the jaunty little pickup bodywork just fine and none of the upright boxy shape has been cut, hopped, r otherwise modified. The distinctive Model A grille and hood are neatly rounded and butt up against that upright cab for a wonderful antique look and the bed out back has perfect proportions. Build quality overall is quite good, nd while it was finished several years ago, t shows only minor signs of use and a great shine that always gets a lot of attention at shows. Fit and finish are what you get with a wood-framed Model A body, etter than most and with doors that have a solid sound when you pull them closed. The fenders are fiberglass and wrap around the wheels tightly for that old-school look and all the formerly nickel-plated Model A trim has been painted body color for a cool hot rod look. The bed is, f course, rimmed in real oak planks and that aluminum tank is a 12-gallon fuel cell that feeds the relatively thrifty 350 up front. The interior is still sensible and simple, ith a bench seat wrapped in two-tone vinyl that makes it look dressed up. Carpets on the floors help control noise and sound and are a big step up from the original rubber mat and wooden floor boards. Matching door panels give it a very finished look and things like a tilt wheel, ir conditioning, nd an AM/FM/cassette stereo mean that long-distance cruises are never out of the question. Simple round gauges monitor all the vitals and suit the simple, mooth dash board just fine. A Lokar shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission does an admirable job of replicating the original Model A handle and yes, he windshield still tilts open for fresh air. It's all a really neat way to bring old and new together pretty seamlessly.The engine is a tried-and-true 350 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 that's properly dressed for duty in a hot rod pickup. Polished aluminum pieces are used throughout to make it sparkle, nd anything that wasn't polished or chrome plated was treated to more of that bright fire engine red paint. The accessories are pulled in tight to the block, o it all fits pretty neatly under the Model A's hood, nd it's fed by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor on a polished intake manifold. The chassis is by Roy Brizio, o you know it's right, ith front power disc brakes, nd an 8-inch Ford out back hanging off a 4-link with coil-overs. With 3.00 gears in the pumpkin, t's an easy cruiser at highway speeds and the current owner reports 18 MPG is possible if you stay out of the secondaries. It's got exactly the right stance, oo, earing big-n-little aluminum wheels with 185/70/14 front and 225/75/15 rear blackwall radials.A neat little truck that doesn't seem to be trying too hard to be something it's not. Clean, ast, un, eliable, nd surprisingly economical, t's a great way to cruise this summer. Call now!
