    I've always loved Jim Jacobs Model A truck and was curious to see pictures of any other Model A closed cab pickups out there.
    These are the only two pictures I could find of it. It really looked awesome with the slicks and Radirs (except for the carnage).

    This is one I randomly found on the web.

    Anyone on the HAMB have one or know of any others? Let's see 'em.

    Your truck rules! Did you save any more pics of it? I'd really love to see a profile of it.

    Check out the New Port Engineering website. In the logo that's Bob & Linda's phone booth pick-up that they built 30+ years ago. I wish I had a better pic. It's a killer truck.

    The picture with me behind the wheel was taken by Ken Leonard at the
    OC Labor Day Cruise.

    The others I took, one is outside Bill McGrath's Early Ford Store.

    Keep 'em coming folks. I've always been a fan of the '28/'29 phone booth PU's. A long time ago I called Jim jacobs and tried to buy his (as if a poor 25 year old from Michigan stood a chance at getting it). It wasn't for sale at the time and I was heart broken when I saw he sold it. All is good as a failure to push away from the dinner table soon enough has permanently rulled out my ever getting behind the steering wheel of one.:(:)

    b-t-w; I'm assuming that this is a 30-31 model A. However, I'm not very well versed on 32-34 pickups, so it might not be a model A at all. I'm sure someone can verify...

    Rick Kersh's truck is the best A pick-up in my opinion. I'll try to find a pic or two that I have.

    EDIT: Pics added..
