All Model As, even the trucks, got the same torquey 200 cubic inch four-cylinder engine, which means maintenance is easier that you would think on an 85-year-old pickup. And yes, this even shows all signs of being the original motor! All the correct equipment is there, from the flat copper plug leads, to the original 6V generator, and the block wears just the right shade of Ford Green. It even has the gravity-fed Zenith carburetor in place. But don’t be afraid to lead the parade route in this classic because the belt, wires, and hoses appear well maintained. The three-speed manual transmission is light and easy to master with a quick double-clutch, and the four-wheel mechanical brakes are surprisingly effective given the Model A’s light weight. You’ll surely find that this pickup keeps up with local traffic easily, and cruises happily on those cool reproduction Firestone tires.
