Clean is the word that best describes this amazing Model A Pickup. Or should we say it's in 'apple pie order'? This is one of the highest quality Model A's we've seen. The car has always been stored in an indoor garage, and obviously has been preserved with care. This Model A is a product of hours and hours of hard work done by a former automotive technician and Model A enthusiast. He purchased this truck in pieces and worked at making sure that all the parts and pieces were finished correctly, and began assembly. Only 18 miles have been clocked on this Model A since restoration.
The familiar shape of the Model A is finished in Rockmoss Green with black fenders and running boards. As with many of the Model A's, the color combination is understated, but the deep green really comes out in the sunlight. A wood slat truck bed and wood side panels break up the dark coloring slightly. Black wheels with polished Ford script center caps are in superb condition, which leads us to the underside of the car. No surprise here, it looks new. The frame and most of the underside of the truck is finished in gloss black with a few parts and pieces finished in matte black.
A look around the very simple interior reveals fit and finish that is just as nice and new looking as the exterior. The black bench seat, black floor mat, the steering wheel, and the headliner/roof are all in brand new condition. An Advance Manufacturing Company vented rear 'Wind-o' is a rare piece that was installed on this truck. The advertisement for the antique aftermarket window mentions that the window, “gives free circulation of air without draughts in all Ford closed models. It permits communication with rumble seat passengers.” Other than that one piece, this car is finished as Henry Ford wished.
Between the front fenders is a 201ci Ford Model B “Diamond” engine. According to our research, the “Diamond” engines were slightly different than the factory A and B engines - they were replacement engines that had more gussets forged in the block in the area of the mains which added strength. Gear selection is via a 3 speed manual transmission.
Model A trucks were advertised as faithful workers, and this truck was built by a faithful Model A owner and restorer. Every part of this truck looks as if it's brand new, the engine is dialed in, and its finished in an understated yet attractive color. This truck is in 'apple pie order', all it needs is a spot in a new garage! Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our website: Garage Kept Motors.
