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 wrote off Ford as the “Flivver Motor Company” by the mid-1920s due to Henry’s single-minded focus on the old-fashioned but successful Model T, Edsel Ford successfully lobbied for development of a new car to replace it. In a startling 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 style 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 six-volt electrical, charging, and starting system. Departing even further from the basic Model T concept, the Model A was 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, very nicely represented by this example from The Jimmie Taylor Collection. 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 a well-preserved, quality restoration. The spartan interior is tidy and correct and while the engine and engine bay could certainly benefit from detailing, they are complete and correct nonetheless. The cargo bed features proper wooden floor planks and retaining straps, without the over-finishing seen on so many other classic pickups. Black wire-spoke wheels, blackwall tires, and a side-mounted spare complete this historic 1929 Ford Model A closed-cab pickup.
