FOR SALE: 1930 Pickup

JD in CA

Recommended Posts

Without stating the complete history of the automobile or the complete history of the Ford Motor Company, I present to you my immaculate 1930 Ford Model A Pickup.


I was fortunate to acquire this factory metal, very complete and solid original truck. It was restored about ten years ago, and I have taken the time to go through the entire vehicle, and re-present it in immaculate condition.


The truck has it original 90 year old engine, which gets going instantly with a touch of the starter, runs & drives like 1930. I drive it all over town, very reliable.   (verbal) history of the pickup since new, and information on the two previous owners.  



This is a true 1930, with a 1929 cab. As we know, Ford factory used every piece/part left over from the previous year.  I love this look, the change over to the ’30 feature, but still has the square cab.


Starting with a great paint job, I sanded down the orange peel sections, then did the three stage 3M Perfect-It paint surface system, followed by a deep carnauba wax. Did my best to get that deep black mirror, even if it is a working vehicle.  


Here are some other details I worked through:

·      Re-dyed the top and visor with SEM Landau Black

·      Restored the powder coated rims (on both sides) and changed to chrome lug nuts, have correct valve stems, and all five tires have full tread

·      Added Moto Meter, custom radiator screen, leather chain guards, and stainless hood hold downs

·      Removed the hood and radiator/shell.  Flushed the radiator, prepped and painted the undersides of the hood and shell

·      Installed passenger side door lock and key, repaired the original Spartan horn and added data plate 



·      The undercarriage is spotless, chassis, frame, sheet metal, transmission, all mechanical parts have been cleaned, prepped and painted, all fasteners are clean and all new cotter pins throughout 

·      I took all the engine components off, prepped, restored and repainted each piece individually, and reassembled to look like the first day it came out of the showroom: oil and, engine pans, fan, carb, hoses, etc

·      Going through the brakes, the components were like new.  But did install oversized pins on all the brake rods. 

·      Replaced the leaking gas tank valve successfully and installed a battery cut off switch

·      Filled the steering box with JD corn head grease, topped off the shocks with proper oil, and did a full lube job




·      Love the manual wiper!!

·      The entire space is spotless, freshly cleaned, painted, both sides of floorboards re-stained 

·      All the gauges work and painted a Tacoma Cream pin stripe

·      Added a personal touch by woodgraining the dash top and window garnish moldings to the 1934 Ford walnut burl pattern.
