1931 Ford Model A Huckster Woody For consignment, a beautifully completed 1931 Model A woody huckster which was the beneficiary of a full restoration and having started out as a 1931 coupe. This truck is looking authentic with two tone exterior, wire wheels, beautifully installed and stained wood sides, vinyl interior, and even carrying a bed load of barrels and baskets along with a scale, all you need to do is scavenge up some apples and start your new business. This hauler also works on a 6-volt positive ground system, has a nicely restored undercarriage, roll down sides for the cargo area and could be the start of a new business. Exterior Looking the part of a traditional Model A up front with its tall roofline, fenders and running boards, along with the essential cowled hood, gloss black radiator surround with its standard flat chrome topper flanked by chrome trimmed black encased head lighting, and dual bar bumpers in front. The steel body is bathed in shiny beige and down below is black for the fenders and running boards. All chrome and even the fuel filler cap atop the cowl is mirror polished. The wood framed windshield is a fixed position unit and a black mirror hangs from the drivers outer windshield frame. The sturdy oak doors with roll up canvas and plastic glass, (I see a new word added to my vocabulary...glastic!), all show nicely and more wonderfully stained and distressed oak makes up the passenger compartment and cargo area and incorporates canvas roll up sides to show off your wares at market. Out back, a single tail light is mounted on the drivers rear fender and a short fold down oak tailgate and rear roll up canvas curtain bring up the tail end of things. A note to the top, which is wrapped in vinyl in black, as technology of the day would not allow for a large piece of steel to be pressed into shape and frankly looks much better than being finished simply in wood. Red 19-inch wire spoke wheels are wrapped in slightly dry rotted rubber for that perfect 30s look. Interior A trees worth of oak covers most surfaces of the door panels with the only deviation being the screw style door releases. Inside, a long smooth black vinyl split bench seat runs door to door and does come with the upper seat section. More wood makes up the vertical surfaces of the interior and the headliner, all looking like new. The full metal jacket dash fronts the bench and is painted body matching beige around a center chromed mask style shiny instrument cluster. A nice shiny original steering wheel is mounted and extending proudly from this nice dash and textured vinyl in black covers the wood and steel front floor. Moving rearward to the cargo area, we note barrels, baskets and a Detecto scale all fitting snugly into the well restored wood bed. Drivetrain Under the hood is a nicely restored 201ci 4-cylinder engine. It is fed fuel by a 1-barrel carburetor and has a 3-speed manual transmission on the back pushing power rearward to a 3.78 gear rear axle. Undercarriage Extremely clean with some slight road dirt and light surface rust on the frame, body hangers, and running boards, but these areas all remain structurally solid and in good condition. Some wood is on for the under floor pans and is all solid and painted black. Transverse leaf springs are the suspension down below and mechanical drum brakes show up also on all 4 corners. Drive-Ability This old gal fired right up running on all 4 cylinders, and as I slipped it into gear, we were ready to take on the test track. It has a nostalgic feel to the ride, nice smooth acceleration, a wonderful sound, and good handling. Braking needs to be planned a bit ahead, but works just fine and I made it to the local market right on time, but nobody seemed to want to purchase anything but the fries I acquired from the McDonalds drive-thru. A nice older restoration with a fine mix of Ford steel and well done oak all rust and rot free, all looking good in the two tone paint along with the highlighting chrome. Amazingly clean undercarriage, and definitely meant to be a shower as well as a driver. Just do not plan any open cruising down the highway at more than 40mph, you dont want your fruit falling out and watching your profit roll to the roadside...
