SHOW QUALITY RESTORATION, RARE PICKUP, DRIVES EXCELLENT, GREAT INVESTMENT!
The 1930 Ford Model A pickup (82-B) was a popular style because it combined the comfort of Ford's main sedan with truck usability. Today that diverse spirit lives in this exceptionally well restored example that would be an attraction at any vintage car show, truck show, or even parade.
The dark green paint looks great with the black fenders. This glossy paintjob looks very period correct, and while it looks like a subtle two-tone indoors, the green shines nicely in the sunlight. But the real standout opposing hue comes from the wooden bed rails that also match the wood on the bed floor. We like this look on a Model A because it boldly showcases the older style craftsmanship that came on the earlier vehicles. While the pickup was one of the most utilitarian of the Model As, it did come with the fender-mounted spare wire wheel, which was usually reserved for the Deluxe models. Given the massive resources out there for restoring a Model A, it's no surprise that this one fits together well with doors that close snugly and a nicely aligned hood.
Step inside and it feels like a time machine to 1930. That's because all the major components feel new, including the seat cover, door panels, rubber floor mat, and steering wheel. Even the dash is freshly painted. 1930 was the premiere of a new design that gave the center instrument panel more real estate and an interesting textured feel. This bright piece holds the speedometer and amp gauge, both of which work perfectly.
All Model As, even the trucks, got the same torquey 200 cubic inch four-cylinder engine, which means maintenance is easier that you would think on an 85-year-old pickup. All the correct equipment is there, from the flat copper plug leads to the original 6V generator, and the block wears just the right shade of Ford Green. It even has the gravity-fed Zenith carburetor in place. But don't be afraid to lead the parade route in this classic because the belts, wires, and hoses look quite fresh. The three-speed manual transmission is light and easy to master with a quick double-clutch, and the four-wheel mechanical brakes are surprisingly effective given the Model A's light weight. You'll surely find that this pickup keeps up with traffic easily and cruises happily at 45 MPH.
These Model A pickups were built so tough it could probably still go to work today. But just like you, this exceptional Ford really just deserves the good life of a long Sunday drive. Call today!!!
