VERY CLEAN RESTORATION W/ ORIGINAL 200 CI 4 CYL & 3 SPD, RUNS/DRIVES GREAT!!!
The Model A certainly had some enormous shoes to fill. Its predecessor, the Model T, was a runaway success, revolutionizing the automotive industry and selling more than 15 million units during its run. So, when Ford closed down its assembly line to retool for its new model, it remained to be seen whether or not they could make lightning strike twice. Turns out, they could. The Model A was an instant sales hit in its own right, appealing to an increasingly savvy car buying public infatuated with its improved comfort, power and reliability. This 1929 Ford Model A is a rare gem that still carries its original drivetrain and serves as an impressive, rolling reminder of a pivotal time in America's automotive history.
Restored to an impressive appearance with its two-tone, red and black paint, this Model A represents its model exceedingly well. Whereas the venerable Model T was intended to get you from Point A to Point B, the Model A was designed to do so IN STYLE, and even with its more utilitarian purpose, this pickup has a decidedly more user-friendly appearance - with its increased width, larger cabin and overall sturdier look. Despite being more than 90 years old, it's a capable-looking vehicle, and with its "Trixie's Produce" emblems adorning the bed in back, you'll have no problem picturing it tooling down an unpaved road to deliver goods to a waiting public. Restored only about 3100 miles ago, the car has a lot going for it: the paint is in very good condition, the chrome on the elaborate front grille, front and rear bumpers is clean and unpitted, and the glass on all four sides, including the signature undersized rear window, is very clear. Direct your gaze a little higher and you'll see that the black vinyl top and sun visor, usually the first areas to suffer from UV damage, show no fading or wear.
The interior reflects the same theme as you see outside - retaining the original configuration and impressively restored. The Model A was the first Ford to feature a closed cab and rolling side windows, and you can see how those advances have conferred a relatively modern look to the cabin. The bench seat is plushly padded and unmarked, covered in brown vinyl that's matched by the door panels on each side. Just beyond the stock steering wheel, the charmingly simple instrument cluster, featuring an awesome latitudinally-positioned speedometer, sits impressively restored in the red steel of the dash. In a nod to increased functionality, turn signals and wiper blades have been added, and a SunPro temperature gauge sits below the cluster to provide a watchful eye against overheating. In back, the bed shows no evidence of shifting cargo or other mishaps, and is lined with newly treated wood.
One of the decided advantages the Model A had over its predecessor came in the form of the very drivetrain sitting underneath this fold up hood. The 200-cubic inch 4 cylinder engine provided substantially more speed, with the capability to cruise at a faster speed than the Model T could even reach, and a top speed of around 65 mph. Rounding out the drivetrain, the 3 speed manual transmission carries an extra gear over the Model T, as well as far easier shifting. This veritable museum piece sits on a set of Ford spoked rims, outfitted with Coker Classic whitewall tires.
