My Dad scores again- 1931 Model A pickup

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Chris, May 3, 2009.

  1. Ok, some of you may remember a couple weeks ago my Dad bought a nice orriginal 1933 Ford fordor sedan. The dust hasn't even settled on that and he did it again.

    We went to a local swap meet today, very very small. It is about 1/4 size of a grocery store parking lot. More of a social event than anything. This nice 31 Model A pickup rolls in on a trailer, and my Dad had to have it. I wanted it really bad, but just didn't have the money. He's been looking for a clean model A to kinnda do like what I did to my coupe. Look past the flat black and red wheels. It was done just to dress it up to sell. This truck is SUPER strait and solid. I belive it is a late 31 with the wider box. Everything electrical works, runs/drives great, has some new rear Firestones, even came with the stock wires. He was super stoked, but now REALLY has to clean house to make some room :D At least this one is a driver!!! I'll keep you guys updated as he "de-ratrods" it a little.

    I would kill just to have the garages you and your dad keep your cars in much less to have the shop space and the cars.

    It's a late 31 indented firewall & that is the wide bed box from what I remember. The only thing it's missing is the steel roof that was on some of them & the late 31 Zenith carb. Nice looking truck. If he wants to retain the sidemount you need a well from a double A to make the 16" wheels fit.

    Really nice truck. Congrats.

    I think it's cool the way it is, too! You don't see many wide-bed Model A Pickups --- there never were a lot of them. Enjoy!
