1929 Model A Pickup
1929 Model A pickup. This car has spent its entire life in Southern California and Arizona. This vehicle was purchased in 2006 from the same owner of the previous 40+ years. Her husband had restored it in the 1960's, but it had been in the same family since new. Apparently her Uncle owned a Firestone store and this was one of their company trucks. The only model A's that came out of the factory red were sold to Firestone Tire Dealerships. Quickly after it was purchased in 2006 it received a major mechanical overhaul. The complete wiring harness was replaced with a reproduction cloth bound original type. All of the lights were upgraded to halogen. The generator was rebuilt. The water pump was replaced with a modern "NO LEAK" type. The radiator was replaced with a new heavier duty one for AZ summers. All of the brakes were sent out to have new cloth shoes fitted. All of the fluids were changed and bearings were replaced/ repacked as needed. All 4 Firestone tires and tubes were replaced with new ones. The carburator was rebuilt and filter was changed. This A runs and drives flawlessly. It has the rare and desirable Borg Warner overdrive that works excellent as well. A custom made wood canopy was built for the bed and was covered with Hartz stayfast heavy duty canvas. All of the curtains roll up if desired. The entire canopy can be removed in less than 10 minutes from the bed. The convertible top was replaced with a new one with original type materials. The Body is one of the nicest I have ever come across, there is no evidence of rust repair or major damage anywhere. The panels fit excellent, hood gaps, door gaps, etc. The body is very straight as are the fenders. The paint has mucho Patina from being over 40 years old and lacquer. This Model A pickup is one of the cleanest you will come across and is truly a pleasure to drive. It starts on the first turn over every time and idles immediately with no feathering of the throttle. It is truly a Gem.
