Description for Ford Model A 1930

Without stating the complete history of the automobile or the complete history of the Ford Motor Company, I present to you my immaculate 1930 Ford Model A Pickup.

I was fortunate to acquire this factory metal, very complete and solid original truck. It was restored about ten years ago, and I have taken the time to go through the entire vehicle, and re-present it in incredible condition.

The truck has it original 90 year old engine, which gets going instantly with a touch of the starter, runs & drives like 1930. I drive it all over town, very reliable.(verbal) history of the pickup since new, and information on the two previous owners.

When I acquired it, I put it on Fordbarn and below is the response I got regarding its history:

“Let's set the record stright.
This Closed Cab Pickup is a bonified 1930 Closed Cab Pickup with the ORIGINAL gas tank which has the 1930 style twist-on gas cap (not screw-on) and other approprate items refelecting the early 1930 era of commercial vehicles. This body style went thru May 1930 when the new version of the Closed Cab was released by Ford.
It was originally bought new (more than likely at the Thomas "Ford" Dealership in Walla Walla, Wa) and owned by my fathers first cousin who used the pickup up to about 1962-1964 on his dryland wheat farm just 2 miles up river from our farm on the Touchet River, west of Walla Walla, WA. I remember this pickup sitting in his barn for many years after that till my brother bought it about 1977 or there abouts.
It was then sold it to a guy in Walla Walla, WA about 1994.
After the restoration, it sat in this guys shed for many years after...he hardly drove it.
It was then sold to the new owner about 2019.
Case closed.
Pluck”

I do but will have to find it...might take awhile as I am helping a friend of mine with his dryland wheat farm.
If you do not hear from me in awhile...please remind me again.
The photo is just of the top of the cab with the couple who owned it...I can not remember if it shows the gas cap or not.
It is interesting but there were three Model A pickups in that area. The first was a 1928-1929 Open Cab just two miles down river from our house; a 1928-1929 Closed Cab at our house; and the 1930 Closed Cab up the river from our house.
The photo of the pickup in front of the mural was taken on September 20, 2019 in Lewiston, Idaho during my Smooth Rider Tour.
To view the home and the barn for which it called home for all those years...Google 12650 Touchet North Road, Touchet, WA.

EXTERIOR

This is a true 1930, with a 1929 cab. As we know, Ford factory used every piece/part left over from the previous year.I love this look, the change over to the ’30 feature, but still has the square cab.

Starting with a great paint job, I sanded down the orange peel sections, then did the three stage 3M Perfect-It paint surface system, followed by a deep carnauba wax. Did my best to get that deep black mirror, even if it is a working vehicle.

Here are some other details I worked through:

·Re-dyed the top and visor with SEM Landau Black

·Restored the powder coated rims (on both sides) and changed to chrome lug nuts, have correct valve stems, and all five tires have full tread

·Added Moto Meter, custom radiator screen, leather chain guards, and stainless hood hold downs

·Removed the hood and radiator/shell.Flushed the radiator, prepped and painted the undersides of the hood and shell

·Installed passenger side door lock and key, repaired the original Spartan horn and added data plate

MECHANICS

·The undercarriage is highly detailed and super clean, chassis, frame, sheet metal, transmission, all mechanical parts have been cleaned, prepped and painted, all fasteners are clean and all new cotter pins throughout

·I took all the engine components off, prepped, restored and repainted each piece individually, and reassembled to look like the first day it came out of the showroom: oil and, engine pans, fan, carb, hoses, etc

·Going through the brakes, the components were like new.But did install oversized pins on all the brake rods.

·Replaced the leaking gas tank valve successfully and installed a battery cut off switch

·Filled the steering box with JD corn head grease, topped off the shocks with proper oil, and did a full lube job

·Seller I got it from did not tell me the truck was missing all four shocks, and I got lucky that my friend had a full set in excellent condition, which I installed

INTERIOR

·Love the manual wiper!!

·The entire space is clean, comfortable, freshly updated, painted, both sides of floorboards re-stained

·All the gauges work and painted a Tacoma Cream pin stripe

·Added a personal touch by woodgraining the dash top and window garnish moldings to the 1934 Ford walnut burl pattern.
