1928 Ford Model A Pickup Roadster Gracing our Hallowed Halls and offered to you for consignment, a 1928 Ford Model A Roadster Pickup. In the case of this car though, mostly original intent as well as actual visual parts to this build, have been retained. The beneficiary of a recent 3 year long restoration and built to be driven, this truck presents very nicely. It shows as near factory new, and for an 95-year-old truck, its in very good condition. Exterior A very vibrant Washington Blue covers the metal panels of this roadster pickup. A few light scuffs and scratches are noted in the finish, but there certainly isnt any rust to be found. Curving fenders and textured rubber covered running boards are also painted blue and show well. A radiant red is painted on delicate looking wire wheels with their now black cast-iron drum brakes in the centers. These are surrounded with like new thin blackwall tires, and on the passenger side is nestled in the back portion of the front fender just before the running boards is a spare tire wrapped in a tan canvas covering. Out back, a blue steel bed with outward canted tops has a floor finished in nicely stained oak wood and black strips all looking to have never hauled a single load. Twin chrome trimmed period correct tail lights, a FORD script embossed tailgate, and split dual bar chrome bumpers round out the tail end of this antique hauler. The front of the car has vented metal side panels that fold upward to reveal the engine compartment. A perfect grille, topped with a chromed Ford motometer, is flanked by 2 oversized headlamps, an original chromed front bumper, and an ahooga style horn. The passenger compartment is covered with a nearly new ivory canvas top, finishing out our exterior tour nicely. Interior Olive brown colored vinyl covers a bench seat and shows in very nice condition with deep tuck and roll inserts. Highly lacquered hardwood is making up the floors and up front the metal dash, also in Washington Blue color, has a centrally located mask style chromed instrument cluster, which shows original gauges. A period style extra large steering wheel, tall shift lever, as well as a handbrake can be seen in the compartment. Very nice, very correct, and all restoration fresh in here. Drivetrain Under the cowled hood is a 201ci 4-cylinder engine that ticks and runs like a switch watch. Not in perfect condition, with some surface rust and olive green paint on the engine is a bit chipped. A 1-barrel carburetor feeds the precise mixture of air and fuel and on the back is a selective sliding gear 3-speed manual transmission. A 3.70 geared rear axle moves you down the road effortlessly. Also in lieu of the generator, an alternator has been installed and all hoses, wiring, and spark plugs appear as new. Undercarriage Retaining its rust free condition from the restoration we see nothing but black painted steel, solid body hangers and cast iron drum brakes now on, and Washington Blue solid stamped steel floor pans. Transverse leaf springs are on all the front and rear and mechanical drum brakes are seen here as well. A single exhaust system is on to handle the exhale. Drive-Ability The highlight of this car despite its good looks and good condition, is definitely the drive-ability. A made for touring in style of the roaring 20s, this car accelerates nicely, and actually runs along at speed, (45-50mph?), easily. Shifting is smooth, and all seems tight and squeak free. All functions are working as they should. Reluctantly the time has come for someone else to take tender loving care of this wonderful 1928 Model A Roadster Pickup.
