Once a common presence on auction sites, vintage Blue Oval vehicles from the 1930s have become less prevalent in recent years, which makes sense given the fact that, well, they’re quickly approaching the century-old mark. Regardless, we still see some fantastic stock and modified FoMoCo vehicles from this era surface for sale every now and then, and this hot rodded 1929 Ford Model A pickup up for grabs at Bring a Trailer is one of the nicest we’ve come across in a while.
This 1929 Ford Model A pickup features a real steel body equipped with a replacement bed, tailgate, cowl, fenders, running boards, and glass, along with a Rootlieb hood, shortened side mirrors, and maple wood slats and stainless steel divider strips on the bed floor, which holds a polished stainless steel fuel tank. The cool classic rolls on a set of 15-inch American Racing Salt Flat wheels, which are wrapped with 175/65 General Altimax RT43 tires in the front and 235/75 Mastercraft A/S IV rubber out back.
That modified body was mounted to a Brookville Roadster chassis equipped with a front drop axle with a transverse leaf spring, a rear four-link suspension with adjustable coilovers, and front disc brakes, while drums handle stopping duties out back. Power comes from a 327 cubic-inch V8 that’s been upgraded with an array of performance goodies including a Comp Cams camshaft, a forged crank, double hump cylinder heads, and an Edelbrock carb, sending power to the wheels via a three-speed TH350 automatic transmission and a 9-inch rear end with 3.08 gears.
The interior of this classic hauler has been heavily modified as well, treated to things like a custom bench seat, loads of tan vinyl, square-weave carpet, a Vintage Air climate control system, Pioneer stereo, a Grant steering wheel, and a B&M Quicksilver shifter. Altogether, this 1929 Ford Model A pickup is certainly a nice build, and one that we imagine will make someone a fantastic cruiser for years to come.
