1930 Model A Ford Closed Cab Pickup

My dad gave me this well-preserved AA grain truck to restore, but I had no room for an AA. Instead I restored the cab and set it on a restored passenger frame. There are a couple pictures of it here still sitting in his barn after he passed away. The body, frame, and matching numbers engine along with the original front fenders and steering gear - which I used - were all in the barn within a few yards of each other.


I built it to what he may have liked for a shop truck before the war. It has some '40s modifications; louvered visor, de-arched front and rear springs, 1932 front axle, 1935 wheels, a hopped-up banger, and the signature SPEEDSTERS "flying beehive" louvered hood sides.
