THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

When Ford's new Model A was introduced in November 1927 there was just one pickup, the 76-A open-cab or roadster style. The closed cab pickup didn't become available until several months later. Built on the same 103½ -inch wheelbase as the passenger cars, the open-cab truck retailed for $395, the same price as the phaeton. Like other open Model As, it lacked exterior door handles, but unlike the others its top did not fold down, as this would have interfered with its load-carrying capability.

Unprepossessing on the outside, this roadster pickup has a very energetic personality. The engine has been fitted with a Thomas aluminum high-compression head and Mallory distributor. It is fed by a Weber two-barrel carburetor and exhausts through headers to a dual exhaust system. It drives through a Wilton four-speed overdrive transmission and a standard rear axle. The chassis has hydraulic brakes and tubular shock absorbers. A spirited performer, it rides smoothly and stops quickly, most un-Model A-like.

Painted in correct Rock Moss Green with Black fenders, this truck is restored to a very high standard. The interior is done in black leather and the top is black canvas. The brightwork, which comprises only the front bumper, instrument cluster and taillight, is all top quality. There is a MotoMeter atop the radiator.

This is a sweet combination of a period commercial vehicle with high performance. It can be enjoyed in any number of ways, something with which a new owner will have no trouble.
