1929 Model A Huckster Pickup Truck on 2040-cars
Springville, Indiana, United States
1929/1930 Ford Model A Huckster Pickup Truck.
This truck is originally from Arizona and has !!NO RUST!! except for the passenger side running board (included in pictures and can be bought pretty cheap from Snyder's or other supply stores). The truck also has two small cracks on the passenger side rear fender which is fairly common as well and can be easily welded up (Also a picture of the cracks provided). Otherwise the truck is extremely solid and has no other body issues.
The truck has a clear Indiana title and is titled as a 1930 Ford Pickup and has matching block/frame numbers. The body style is late 1929 and from what I've heard they ran that body into early 30' as well.
Everything mechanical runs, drives, stops as it should for being 84/85 years old and runs like a clock. I've taken it out multiple times so far this year and haven't had any issues starting right up the first shot! Leaks in the usual places: a little from the water pump which is notorious and small drops from the trans which is common as well.
This is not a restored truck and is just a little jalopy that is fun and reliable to hop in and drive (at very slow speeds at that)!!! (Top speed so far is 46mph downhill).
New items: Tires, Battery, Starter, taillight wiring.
Will need a few items for consistent daily driving: new headlights (ones on it are burnt out), headlight wiring, some type of top (convertible at the moment), full floor, mirrors, windshield wiper, etc but I'm rather simplistic and have had fun with it the way it is. Taillight/Brake light is wired and works but the light is an early 70's Honda cb350 light wired up just to make it legal for the road (hey use what you have!).
The last picture is of the truck with the full top screwed on and what an original Huckster looks like. I have this hanging on my wall for the time being and will of course include it in the sale. I also have the original Huckster diagram/plans that I will include with the sale in case you want to restore all of the wood.
This truck is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early at any time.
If you would like to as any questions I will try to answer the best I can, please feel free to give me a call at: 260-235-0906 during reasonable hours and if I don't answer please leave your name/number and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
If you live local enough to Southern Indiana (Springville/Bedford) please feel free to give me a call and make some time to stop on by for a test drive!!!
Please no tire kickers or lowball offers, this is a very nice little truck that is running and ready to go!
Payments will be accepted through Paypal or if you are local, cash in person.
I do not need help selling :).

Oprah Winfrey loves giving away cars. Not only has she given Pontiac G6 sedans and Volkswagen Beetle retro-mobiles to everyone in the audience of her past show, but the other night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! she gave another car away to one lucky audience member, while yelling her now-famous line: "You get a car!"
Although the acting of Oprah and Jimmy Kimmel was obviously staged for this giveaway, the reaction from the woman in the audience was genuine shock as she found out that she had just won a new Ford Fusion Energi. Congrats!
Not to take away from what Oprah and Jimmy pulled off, but our cynical sides have to wonder if there isn't more than just a little coincidence that this giveaway took place on the same day that Ford announced a fuel economy reduction for the C-Max hybrid. You be the judge... Scroll down to watch the short clip from the episode.
Bradley Holt (pictured), the older half-brother of University of South Florida freshman quarterback Quinton Flowers, was killed in a random act of violence last week.
The 24-year-old Holt was throwing a football around with local kids in Allapattah, a neighborhood in Miami, when a yellow Mustang showed up and started doing donuts in the street. Holt, worried about kids playing in front his apartment complex, walked over to the driver and asked him why he was "driving so crazy with so many kids out here?"
The driver left. Holt's sister said the driver came back "about 15 to 20 minutes later" and fired two shots at Holt. One of them hit Holt in the back of the head, killing him.
As we prepare for the arrival of the all-new, next-generation Ford F-150, rumors about the new truck are picking up steam. Naturally, many of said rumors aren't just related to the way the truck will look (it's expected to take design cues from the Atlas concept shown above), they're tied to what's going to motivate the Blue Oval mainstay, with Ford's EcoBoost range likely to play an increasingly key role. While we're still expecting the current 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 to retain its position as a premium alternative to Ford's naturally aspirated V6 and V8, a Canadian automotive news site is proposing that the Dearborn automaker is also preparing a new, more fuel-efficient downsized EcoBoost option.
Autos.ca is reporting that a new, 2.7-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 could find its way into the lighter, aluminum-intensive truck. The new engine supposedly makes use of asymmetrical turbos to generate 320 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque - substantially more impressive numbers than the current 3.7-liter base engine's 302 ponies and 278 lb-ft - while offering improved fuel economy and emissions. The new 2.7 EcoBoost (internally dubbed "Nano") isn't expected to supplant the naturally aspirated V6 as the F-150's base engine, it's expected to slot in above directly it.
Naturally, we're prescribing more than a few grains of salt to go with these rumors, at least until Ford debuts the next F-150 at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, a reveal we'll be covering in a mere two weeks.
