1929 fully restored Model A Huckster
|Model:||Model A Huckster|
A Wonderful Model A Ford Huckster
From 1928 through 1931 Ford built in excess of 5 million Model A vehicles in a variety of body styles, some of which morphed into vehicles particularly suited to the needs of the time. The Huckster was one such variant that was custom-made to facilitate the farm-to-table trade as well as other salesperson display/service needs.

- Paint and Woodwork
The green paint on the cowl/hood and the black fenders are in good condition.
All of the chrome is very nice

The fit and finish of the woodwork is in very nice condition.
The seat upholstery was redone in black vinyl, with one patch and is in very nice condition.
The truck’s 4 cylinder engine—the serial number of which is the Model A’s VIN–sits nestled in a relatively clean engine bay. It starts and runs much as it, along with 5 million other Model A’s, did when they were built.
The 3-speed standard transmission shifts properly,
- Tires, Brakes and Monitoring Systems
This Huckster has 5 new tires, all on newly powder-coated wheels..
The brakes work well giving confidence that the Huckster will stop properly.
All of the gauges appear to be working properly. Similarly, the lights, horn, and wipers are working.
A Very Nice Example of one of these great Hucksters
This Model A is a restored—but unmolested—example of the Huckster variant. These original trucks are in high demand but short supply. They therefore represent not just a great driving experience but a sound investment as well. And if there was ever a truck that transports you back to the pre-war period, this is it. Apart from the investment value of this truck, it is hard to put a price on the feeling of enjoyment when other drivers and pedestrians wave and give you a “thumbs up.”
