800 Derita Road, Ste. A
There's arguably no better way to experience the early days of motoring than in this 1929 Ford Model A Roadster Pickup. After all, it's the combination of a practical truck and the kind of realistic feeling that comes from a vehicle that's open to the world. And this example really showcases that with an authentic feeling.
Green and black is a terrific way to represent these Model A pickups. It's expertly intertwined with the green main body supplemented by the black of the fenders, grille, running boards, wire wheels (including the fender-mounted spare), and windshield frame. Plus, it also really makes the black folding roof look like part of the color theme when it's in place. But because both colors are nice and dark, it gives the truck a two-tone flair without taking away from the workman roots. That's why the paint is glossy but it has plenty of charm that looks like it still goes to work. Even the real lumber in the truck bed isn't so glossy that you wouldn't hesitate to put a couple bags of seed in there for the family farm.
The interior continues this pickup's authentic feel, right down to the wood on the floor. They made investments in the right places, like a durable reupholstered bench seat, but nothing takes away from this 1920s experience. The tall floor shifter, bright gauge panel, and steering wheel with timing control are all pure vintage motoring. So you know it's just better in a roadster that can have the top down and give you that unbeatable combination of sunshine, breeze, and the subtle sounds of a classic Model A.
All Model As, even the trucks, got the same torquey 201 cubic inch four-cylinder engine. So while this pickup has passed the 90-year-old mark, it also has a thriving community for keeping these on the road. Authenticity means this one is correct down to details, like the copper plug leads, 6V generator, and the block aged in proper Ford Green. It even has the gravity-fed carburetor in place. It knows how to be a strong running if you want to go for a Sunday drive. And the three-speed manual transmission doesn't take long to master, but is a ton of fun when you do.
Authentic is the buzzword for this truck, and so if you're looking to travel back in time, this roadster pickup is ready to take you there. Call now!
