Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.

Classic Car Overview

Trucks make great hotrods and this 1929 Ford Model A Pickup offers all the same tricks as its roadster and coupe siblings, but with a big slice of practicality on the side. With a 100% steel body and custom bed, it has a wonderful old-school look thats been turned up to 11 with a sizzling Chrome Yellow paint job and comfortable gray interior. Thundering 350 V8 power and a sporty suspension transform this show-piece into a turnkey ready cruiser, meaning the only thing this antique beauty is missing is a new owner that craves attention. Bright Chrome Yellow paint borrowed the Chevrolet Corvette color chart suits the jaunty little pickup bodywork perfectly, drawing in the eye of the viewer and leaving them wanting for more. Its not often a streetrod can pull of being this transformative, but this beauty manages to look great both as a pickup and a full-blown roadster. Top on or off, this all-steel Ford looks killer a testament to the design and high quality of the overall build. The body is 100% steel, which is a rare find these days, and on this truck, that full-fendered look coupled with the small bed out back hits all the right notes. The execution has been completed to a high standard, and youll note how well everything fits together nicely, with doors that fit flush, laser-straight panels, and no worries about previous repairs or damage coming back to haunt you. This suckers about as close to a new 1929 Ford as youre going to get, and it sure looks great when its cruising down Main Street. The high-impact paint lets the shape do most of the talking, working in harmony instead of as a solo, featuring a great shine, smooth uniformity, and incredible depth not typically seen on vehicles at this price point. Its been driven and enjoyed since the build was completed so its no longer perfect, but any blemishes (and there arent many) or extremely minor and do nothing to detract from the curb appeal. Light gray pinstripes outline portions of the body and break up the Chrome Yellow finish just enough to keep things interesting, but were happy they were conservative with those types of add-ons. Too many builds are marred with obnoxious graphics, decals, or silly stripes, and they do little more than date the build and take way from the quality of the restoration. This 29 streetrod instead defies time while still incorporating old-school elements like the painted grille shell and simple black insert, King Bee-style headlights, a louvered hood, upright windshield, and the stock-style tailgate out back. The bumpers were deleted, making way for a chrome spreader bar up front and a roll pan setup with integrated taillights in the rear. Swooping fenders and running boards soften the upright look of the body, the door handles were shaved (although the hinges remain), and the inside of the bed is beautifully finished with smoothed-and-painted inner panels, lightly-stained wooden floors, and chrome rub strips. The interior is still sensible and simple like the original Model As, although its been tastefully upgraded with a comfortable bench seat and matching door panels wrapped in gray tweed-and-vinyl upholstery. Carpets on the floors help control noise and sound and are a big step up from the original rubber mat and wooden floorboards, and a set of matching floormats were fitted as well. The simple dash was smoothed and painted to match the exterior, and it houses an ornate set of white-faced gauges hung inside old-school Ford bezels, along with a woodrimmed Ididit steering wheel mounted atop a tilt column that gives the driver a little extra room at the helm of the cockpit. A forward-canted shifter juts out from the floorboard and manages the automatic transmission below, and it was cut from similar billet materials that make up the sporty gas and brake pedals which isnt an accident. The windshield still tilts open for fresh air like it did so many decades ago, and the black canvas top can be easily removed for true open-air cruising. For reliability and performance, its hard to beat a small-block Chevy powerplant, and we love to see big power inside quality-built streetrods that attract a lot of attention. The 350 V8 fits nicely under Fords pointed hood and is beefed up with familiar gear like an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock RPM intake, a serpentine belt system, and long-tube headers at the flanks. Its also been dressed for show, with polished and detailed accessories tucked in tight to the block, and all those shiny bits tie the whole truck together quite nicely. The firewall was custom fitted to accommodate the larger block, with form following function very trickly. Theres massive cooling available from the aluminum radiator and electric fan up front. Sticking with top-flight hardware, its backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic mounted with an auxiliary trans cooler and a Ford 9-inch rear end filled with 3.25 gear out back, so its ready for off-the-line performance and highway cruising alike. The undercarriage is just as beautiful as the topside, with Chrome Yellow paint and polished chrome accessories everywhere you look, featuring a bright drop axle set-up in the front, a 4-link with colivers in the rear, and front disc brakes that stop the truck on a dime. Note the dual saddle gas tanks at the flanks, and that gorgeous H-pipe dual exhaust system has the perfect streetrod tone. A classic big-and-little wheel-and-tire combination sets the stance and finishes the build with a perfect hotrod look, featuring shiny American Racing Torque Thrusts wrapped in 195/50/15 front and 255/70/15 rear BFGoodrich radials. A dialed-in streetrod roadster truck thats as gorgeous as it is dynamic. Bright, quick, fun, reliable, and dripping with confidence, its a great way to join the hobby. Call now!
