Very Rare 1931/32 Model A Pickup Barn Find ! 4/18/09
This is a very rare and hard to find Late Production 1931 Model A . In 1932 the Model B was not ready for customers until late April until then Ford sold these Late 31' Model A's as 1932's. You can tell the difference between the earlier A's by looking at the all steel roof as well as the wider bed both of these characteristics are found in the real 32' trucks . If you notice not only is the Bed wider but it has a full steel floor that rest over the wood deck. This truck is a beauty and runs great but to make her truly road worthy she needs papers and working lights as well as some newer tires the ones that are on it hold air but have cracks.
The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873, Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen (or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.

Model A rods don't get much better than this 1930 Model A Ford pickup. Exceptional attention to detail, great components, and beautiful finish work all add up to a show-winning piece that can be driven comfortably cross-country. This truck was professionally built to drive, with an 8-inch extension to the cab, A/C, and an overdrive transmission, and there are absolutely no compromises in the construction. With a ton of original character like cowl lights and a grille guard, it preserves all that is great about vintage Fords, while delivering a thoroughly modern driving experience. THIS is what hot rodding is all about.
The color is from a 2005 Mustang called Windveil Blue, and it's nice to see a rod that isn't red or yellow or black. The body and fenders are fiberglass, while the bed and hood are steel, but you can't tell the difference without touching it. There are no ripples in the 'glass, and the steel is fresh out of the dies. The top has been chopped 2.5 inches, while the doors have been lengthened three inches, not only to improve egress, but also to remain proportionate to the longer cab. Great detailing includes a contrasting blue finish on the body moldings, just like the original paint job in 1930, and the truck is covered in high-quality hand-laid pinstripes that are not gaudy, but perfectly appropriate. That bed cover is aluminum, not fiberglass, and has power linear actuators to lift it with just the touch of a button revealing the beautifully finished oak bed.
Open that steel hood, which has removable louvered sides as original just in case you want a more traditional look, and you'll find a 290 horsepower Chevy 350 crate motor. You know it's dressed to show off, with lots of polished aluminum and chrome, but it's reliable enough to be driven every day. Vintage-looking finned Edelbrock valve covers are a great traditional styling cue, and it's hard to beat a 4-barrel carburetor for reliability and easy service. Keeping everything cool is a big aluminum radiator with a giant 16-inch electric fan with plenty of clearance. Vintage Air A/C and heat are included and fully functional, and power brakes give it impressive stopping power.
The pro-built chassis is completely detailed for show, but ready to drive, starting with the 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission. In back, there's a new 9-inch Ford axle with 3.50 gears, 31-spline axles and a Trac-Lok limited slip, making this an easy highway cruiser. The front suspension is a popular Mustang Two setup with tubular A-arms and coil-over shocks, and unlike many early rods, there's also a sway bar to help keep body lean in check. 11-inch discs and a set of matching drums out back handle the stopping chores, and with a lightweight truck, performance is impressive. It rolls on a set of chrome Wheel Vintique steelies with baby moon hubcaps for a real '50s look, and wears General radials.
With custom bucket seats by Wise Guy, it carries two people in comfort with plenty of legroom for everyone. The stunning dash is a masterpiece of deco design, and uses white-faced Omega instruments to deliver news from under the hood. Overhead you'll find a custom-built console with an AM/FM/XM radio system as well as the switches for the power windows and locks.
There seems to be an awful lot of performance and comfort built into this little Model A pickup, and thanks to careful planning and a professional build, it all works as it should. Most hot rods are all about compromises, but this one doesn't have many; it's fast, reliable, well-sorted, and full of creature comforts. Take this one home today with no waiting. Call now!
