If youre over about five-feet, ten-inches tall, a Model A pickup is probably not for you, given the space limitations inside the stock cab. However, youre in luck because this amazing Model A crew cab pickup neatly solves the problem for you. With four doors and room for the whole family, its a fantastic fantasy creation that stops traffic yet remains eminently practical.
The body is fiberglass and this truck in particular was built to show off the fiberglass companys handiwork with the crew cab body. It keeps the original Model A proportions and simply extends them to their logical 4-door conclusion, and with the extended wheelbase, stubby bed, and Model A fenders, theres simply no mistaking it. Fit and finish are excellent, as youd expect from a show/demonstrator vehicle designed to sell body kits, and they pulled out all the stops to make all four steel-framed doors fit as well as humanly possible. The PPG Midnight Sapphire paint is vivid but not overwhelming, letting the unique body speak for itself, but as you look it over, youll find that this is a show-quality paint job. There are a lot of little detail tweaks, too, from the dropped headlight bar to the third brake light atop the cab to the twin exhaust stacks running up the side of the cab. The bed is finished in durable spray-in bedliner material, so you can even put it to work, and its set up to haul a trailer so just imagine showing up with this as your tow rig! Too cool.
The interior is neatly trimmed in two-tone gray leather, featuring buckets from a Blazer and a custom rear bench that really allows comfortably 5-passenger touring. The whole passenger compartment is reinforced with a steel safety cage, so you can forget about this being some flimsy fiberglass knock-off. The doors close with a solid thunk and stay latched without squeaks or rattles. All the comfort features youd demand in your new dually are here, including Vintage Air HVAC, power windows, cruise control, a tilt wheel, remote openers for all four doors, and two auxiliary power points in the gorgeous wood dash. Vintage VDO gauges keep an eye on the engines vitals and a custom overhead console houses a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit. And again, as a demonstrator vehicle, this one is really, really nice inside.
Power comes from a bulletproof Corvette LT1 V8 whose 300 horsepower is plenty to move the pickup with real authority. Barking through those twin pipes its hardly subtle, but few engines have proven themselves in hot rods more often than the LT1. Custom headers feed a stainless exhaust system from Stainless Works, and for cruising comfort, theres a GM 4L60E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission spinning a 9-inch rear with 3.89 gears on a limited slip differential. The frame is custom-built from 2x6 boxed steel for durability, with a Posies dropped front axle and a 4-link with coil-overs out back. Staggered Torque Thrust wheels give it that raked hot rod look, with giant BFG radials out back totally stuffing the fenders.
We always say that trucks make practical hot rods, but youve never seen anything like this 29 Ford, especially since it can still, you know, work like a truck. Call today!
