1930 Ford Model A Pickup With Great History Up For Auction

These days, we don’t see quite as many vintage vehicles from the 1920s and 1930s as we used to, but there are still plenty of cool classics out there for the taking. In recent months, that list has included a 1928 Ford Model A pickup, as well as a 1930 Model A Wrecker that previously crossed the auction block. Now, that list continues to grow with this very interesting 1930 Ford Model A pickup that’s currently up for grabs at Bring a Trailer.

This 1930 Ford Model A pickup was originally used to haul ice and coal for Colonna Brothers Inc. based out of the Bronx, New York, but was eventually treated to a refurbishment in the 1970s. The seller’s father acquired the cool classic in 1978 and it has remained in the family ever since, at least until now.

On the outside, this vintage hauler still looks a lot like it did decades ago, sporting green paint and Glen Head Farms lettering, which is also located in New York, along with a cherry wood-framed canopy with vinyl sides and a cherry bed floor. Given its age, there are some flaws, as one would expect, but nothing terribly major. The simple cabin is in great shape however, with a vinyl bench seat, a steering wheel, a shifter, and instrumentation – but not much else.

Power for this vintage machine comes from a 201 cubic-inch L-head inline-four cylinder engine that was reportedly installed back in 2001, though it’s leaking from the rear main seal. Total mileage is unknown, but it sends power to the rear wheels via a sliding-gear three-speed manual transmission. Even though it needs a little bit of work to make perfect, it’s easy to see the appeal of this 1930 Ford Model A pickup, which would certainly be the talk of any car show that it heads to moving forward.
