This Model A Delivery has benefitted from a nut and bolt frame off restoration and appears to be painted in Anadulusite Blue, which was one of the cars original four color options. Complementing that blue is traditional gloss black Model A fenders and black body trim Fully detailed and expertly finished, the cars body is free of ripples and the blue and black on blue paint looks period correct and very classy. Up front, a stainless radiator cowl with a1928-1929 screw on, chrome plated Ford Model A capand correct “Ford” stamped headlights with stainless wire looms display a nice patina that looks appropriate given the cars original purpose, but does not detract from its show worthy restoration. Hanging below the headlights on the gloss black headlight bar is a correct Ford Model A horn that sounds just as good as it looks. In front of the gloss black fenders, a correct chrome plated steel spring bumper features black brackets and a cool “Ford” emblem that complements the cars pristine radiator cowl emblem. Just behind the stainless radiator cowl, a four piece hinged hood is in excellent shape and along with the cowl mounted fuel tank, which features a stainless fuel cap, displays no chips or imperfections. Above the cowl mounted fuel tank, a new windshield sits under the cars single wiper and holds two correct rear view mirrors that are finished in gloss black and trimmed in chrome.correct Colonial Grain vinyl top that is in excellent shape and shows no signs of fade or wear. The classic profile of the car is interrupted only by correct body matched bear claw door hinges and correct chrome door handles that display the same patina as the radiator and headlights. At the rear of the car, a third door is held on by three more correct bear claw hinges, secured by a matching chrome handle and houses glass presents as new. Below the rear door, two more chrome plated spring bumpers are held on with black brackets, and a correct chrome duo tail lamp with red lenses occupies the driver’s side of the car serving double duty as a tag bracket and tag light.
Fold open the blue steel hood or remove its louvered sides and you’ll find a correct 40 horsepower L-head four cylinder that measures 201 cubic inches. Painted dark charcoal gray, this motor might be slow but it was an exceptionally reliable workhorse that would eventually be supplanted by Ford’s flathead V8. On the passenger’s side of the engine, copper fuel lines gravity feed fuel from the cowl mounted fuel tank through a black sediment bowl into a correct one barrel Zenith carburetor. Directly above the motor, a gloss black coil is bolted to the dark blue firewall and runs power to a correct Model A distributor which sends fire to four spark plugs. Exhaust is piped out of a correct exhaust manifold that sits above a correct intake manifold, to a baffled muffler just behind the engine. At the front of the engine bay, a correct 2 blade pulley mounted fan is driven by a crank turned V belt that appears to be in good shape while correct hoses and tubing run from the radiator to the block and are secured by correct clamps. The engine compartment is finished in the same dark blue as the body and features the Delivery’s original body plate on the passenger’s side firewall. Above the engine, the four piece hood is covered in dark blue and finished to the same standards as the rest of the body.
The bottom of this Delivery is very clean with its black fenders and body braces still retaining significant gloss. Everything has been professionally restored and every part is correct to how the pickup rolled out of its Ford assembly plant. A 3-speed sliding gear manual transmission sends power to a correct gloss black rear end that provides motivation for the rear wheels. At the front of the car a gloss black oil pan perfectly matches gloss black suspension, and an original style exhaust pipe runs through a correctly baffled muffler into a tail pipe that stops just short of the rear axle. Mechanical drum brakes sit on each side of correct transversely mounted leaf springs to provide acceptable riding and stopping. The entire chassis is bolted together with stainless hardware and includes a driver’s side floor mounted battery tray for easy battery access and charging. This Delivery rolls on correct 21 inch wire spoke wheels that are painted Yellow and wear traditional size 4.50/4.75-21 Firestone black walls. On the outside of those wheels you’ll find in the middle of those wheels you’ll find correct “Ford” stamped chrome center caps and silver lug nuts.
Inside the cab, this Delivery features a traditionally simple and appealing Model A interior. The arched dash is painted in blue and houses a nicely aged center gauge pod that includes the ignition switch, an amps gauge, a cool round speedometer with an incorporated odometer and a floating fuel gauge for the cowl mounted fuel tank. Above the dash, hardware for the tilt window is in great shape and an interior light and its switch are incorporated into the panel a. Below the dash a simple metal shifter and vertical emergency brake complement a stainless choke for the Zenith carburetor, and correct black floor pedals spring up from a black rubber floor mat. At each side of the floor mat, correct “Ford” stamped sill plates welcome you to the interior and sit below pristine Tan Corduroy Hounds Tooth panels. Those door panels are topped by black trim that matches the lower body and feature chrome window cranks which work fine, chrome door handles and chrome door locks. Two bucket seats are covered in the same The Tan Corduroy pleated Hounds tooth pleated pattern.as the door panels and feel firm to the touch. Behind the seats the cargo floor is a Gray painted wood floor in excellent condition.
This Ford Model A Delivery is a very cool car that has been professionally restored to have just as much character as it did back in 1929. It’s a very traditional, period correct piece that will be a nice conversation starter wherever you go. Specialty Model As that haven’t been chopped up or modified into something that loses all of its inherent charm are becoming increasingly hard to find.
