1933 Ford Pickup
The Ford Model A can be found in many iterations: coupe, to a roadster, to a sedan to a pickup. Henry Ford had a solid base in the Model A and appeased the masses with various options on that frame.
This Model A has been painstakingly restored to its current hot rod state. One of the cars in the Classic Auto Mall Collection that is a shower AND a goer. Goer in the true sense of the word, as the consigner has drivability on his mind every step of the build. No stone left unturned on this one!
Burgundy, Burgundy, Burgundy (with metal flake) with a peppering of chrome best describes this steel bodied 1933 rodded pickup. Retaining most of its original look, save for some painting over chromed areas, this truck presents with straight panels, good gaps, sweet fenders and running boards, and a beautiful bed. Speaking of the bed, it's over the top with a stainless liner on the sides and behind the cab, then construct a new oak bed with stainless dividers, and varnish with 5 coats to make the wood shine like the stainless. Original style bumpers curve around the front and rear. American racing wheels, and oversize tires ground the car and add some bling.
A two-tone red cloth insert and white vinyl bolster bench seat stretches from mohair to mohair covered door panels. Inserted into the panels is a white vinyl patch that is a custom shape, and it houses the armrest, power window toggles, and the door handle. Red carpet fills the floor, and in the center is a white leather booted gearshift. A matching body color dash in full metal jacket, supports the VDO gauge cluster, which is inserted into a machined aluminum long centered oval. A rally steering wheel on an adjustable column fronts the beautiful dash. The remainder of the cabin is covered in mohair. On the headliner one can see a small shelf, covered in mohair, which holds the AM/FM/CD player.
The Chevrolet 350ci power plant topped by an Edelbrock manifold and carburetor, is bolted to a 3-speed automatic transmission.
Attention to detail is what makes or breaks these cars here at Classic Auto Mall, and this one is a make. Using the exterior color, all suspension, frame, floorpans, driveshaft hump and any other significant parts are painted. This adds a very attractive look to the underside, and highlights the wood from the bed, which can be seen underneath as well. As I said…. a make.
Older restoration/rodding, which is very tastefully done, and remains timeless. A head turner, this truck can be used as a hauler, as well have a secret life as a mauler!
