Ford Model A Pickup
This 1930 Model A pickup truck was custom built at a cost of $100,000 and incorporates many modifications and upgrades that have been tastefully done and executed by professionals.
Beneath the glowing Chevrolet Inferno Orange paint and Root Beer striping the body has been chopped 3 inches, the doors extended by 3 inches and the rear of the cab deepened by 5 inches, creating a much roomier cab that can accommodate taller people in complete comfort. Speaking of comfort, the Mapes Auto Upholstery interior offers custom finished bucket seats with body color-matching upholstery, power steering, brakes and windows, heat and air conditioning and a custom overhead console mounting a Pioneer sound system with a plug-in adapter for iPad, iPhone or iPod.
Riding on Boze 18-inch alloys mounting Mickey Thompson Street Radials and stopped with 14-inch Wilwood disc brakes, this truck drives beautifully on its Independent Technologies suspension and will rocket through all six gears when called upon.
That’s the magic of its 2004 Pontiac LS1 V-8 that pumps out a generous 350 HP through a factory stock Tremec T56 manual transmission to a John’s Industries Ford 9-inch rear end fitted with new Tru Trac Positraction and racy 4.11:1 gearing. With only 1,500 miles on the truck since the build, it will be the source of pride and enjoyment for years to come.
