The introduction of the Ford Model A in late 1927 represents one of the most significant and successful business turnarounds of the 20th Century. While many believed by late 1924 that Henry Ford’s engineering and manufacturing genius had seen better days, Edsel Ford, Henry’s visionary son and President of the Ford Motor Company, successfully lobbied for development of a new car to replace the venerable Model T. In a landmark move, Henry Ford ordered his factories to shut down in June 1927 and when the Model T’s successor, the Model A, debuted several months later, it marked a quantum leap forward with its handsome Lincoln-inspired styling, the product of Edsel’s design genius.
Substance matched the new Model A’s winning styling with a larger 200 cubic-inch, 40-horsepower four-cylinder engine producing twice the output of its predecessor. While the Model A was more complex than the old “Tin Lizzie,” driving was made much easier with a new sliding-gear manual transmission with a simplified “H” shift pattern. Other advances heralded by the Model A included welded steel wire wheels, Houdaille-type double-acting shock absorbers, four-wheel mechanical brakes, and a 6-volt electrical, charging, and starting system. Departing even further from the basic Model T concept, the Model A was even available in a choice of several colors. Priced from just $460, the Model A was initially available in nine body types and as before with the Model T, the new Ford provided buyers with immense value and utility.
From 1928, the Model A was available from the factory in hardworking pickup-truck form, initially as an open-cab model. A modern, closed-cab model with all-steel cab construction and roll-up side windows followed from August 1928. Both closed- and open-cab Model A pickups were initially offered with a choice of Black and Moss Green body colors, with black used for the fenders, running boards, wheels, headlight housings, and the radiator-grille surrounds. This very attractively presented 1929 Ford Model A closed-cab pickup benefits from an older restoration and following acquisition, the proper care and storage provided within the Monical Collection. As offered, it runs and drives well and is highly attractive with proper finishes, accented by a very attractive set of stake rails adorning the cargo bed, plus desirable period accessories including a pair of Amber fog lamps, a Ford-scripted winged Moto Meter, and a brass fire extinguisher.
