Just like its long-running predecessor, the Model T, Fords robust and reliable Model A was a highly adaptable, basic design that proved to be an excellent platform on which to construct utilitarian but very handsome wood-bodied station wagons and depot hacks. Ford did not yet manufacture its own wooden bodies for the Model A, and consequently, all wagons came from a number of outside suppliers. One alternative was the commercial huckster body with a large cargo area at the rear.
The huckster was useful for many utilitarian applications, and restored survivors continue to remain popular among early Ford collectors today.
